Aug 11, 2015 - Panama

We drove another 200 miles. It's not that far from Mobile AL to Panama City FL but we did alot of riding and looking. If a road went by any water (inlet or ocean) we rode it. Not any big roads for us. We are glad we decided to make a Flordia trip. The news showed flooding and hail out in Colorado this morning. Normally we would have already started out with the trailer and we were planning on going to Denver. We Thank the Lord for watching over us each and everyday.

Aug 14, 2014 - We pick up our new trailer and head to Tyndall AFB FAMCAMP

Today (August 31st, 2013) we picked up our new trailer from RV Connections in Panama City, FL. Our salesman Bill was an awesome guy. He entertained the boys with golf-cart rides while Terry and I completed all the paperwork! After getting all hooked-up to the truck, we headed directly to the FAMCAMP on Tyndall Air Force Base. We picked an awesome spot right by the water. We purposely chose one of the spots without sewer hook-ups so we could be closer to the water. We are so excited to be in our new home away from home!!! The adventure...

Jun 9, 2014 - Panama City, Florida

6/9 – 6/13 Our next stop was in Panama City, 67 miles from Niceville (SR20, SR79, SR98). We arrived at Saint Andrews State Park about an hour before Peter, Tori, the three grandchildren, Abbie (cousin) and the two labs pulled into the site next to us. Saint Andrews is a nice park with a very long, beautiful beach. The kids were quite at home in the water and really enjoyed the daily swims. Ken and Peter took Joe and Sam to a tourist attraction. Joe and Peter rode the Vomatron (a two car huge Farris wheel) they all rode the go-carts on the...

Jan 22, 2014 - Panama City, Florida

Day 321 - 324 of The Big Trip On January 19, as we were getting up, it started to rain and then it really began to pour. It's never fun to disconnect in the rain. It finally began to lighten up and Clark was able to get the hoses and cord stowed. As we traveled west, the day began to get better and better and soon, we had clear skies. The drive from Perry to Panama City Beach was about 170-180 miles and a lot of it was right along the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. We saw several bear warning signs and decided we had as much chance of seeing...

Dec 10, 2013 - Panama City Beach

It was nice to see the gulf again when we arrived at Panama City Beach. We're staying in a state park this time - St Andrews, right on the gulf with the Bay on the other side. It's a beautiful state park and we were able to reserve a spot with a back-in view of the bay. We enjoyed just hanging around camp and watching the boats come and go. On the other side of the park are remote gulf beaches with snow white sand - known as the Emerald Coast. We did do some touring, visiting the historic St. Andrews district and then along Front Beach...

Mar 28, 2013 - Panama City, FL

3/28/13, Thursday Another short hop today to Panama City, FL and the Tyndall Air Force Base FamCamp (Family Camp). But we made a few stops along the way. The jets were flying right overhead which was really neat....the sound of our freedom! Destin, FL is home to the Fort Benning Army Recreation Area which we had heard was really great so we stopped by for a look. Not our cup of tea. The rigs were packed in like sardines. On the Plus side though, the facilities were first class. It had a wonderful beach, play areas for the kids, swimming...

2013 USA Trip

Nov 12, 2012 - Panama City, FL

The drive to Panama City, Florida from Chiefland reminded me what a big state Florida is. Two days ago we left Tampa which I always think of as midway between north and south. We drove 4 hours to Chiefland which I think is in the middle of nowhere, then 5 hours to Panama City, Florida. We have had 4 travel days since leaving Key West and we are still in Florida, and we have another short travel day to go! We have been in Florida for more than 2 weeks now. The seacoast north of Tampa is called "Florida's Emerald Coast", a term that I first...

Apr 19, 2012 - Panama City, FL (March 24-26, 2012)

After a wonderful stay with Spike and Claire, we loaded up Willie4 and headed further south, stopping at Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City. We found a nice spot at their Raptor Ranch RV Park, on a Pearl Bayou which flows into the bay. On the list of military base rv parks, this one ranks up there -- large, treed sites, across from woods or water! So, we stayed for a few days. And, what we did was walk their short trails and played golf at Pelican Point Golf Course, the Tyndall base course. After not staying in our motor coach for...

Apr 8, 2012 - Tyndall AFB FL

We left Foley going East on Hwy 98 while Kay & Marlin drove the the NW to the Seattle Washington Area to workkamp for the summer. We really enjoyed the drive along the Gulf. Hwy 98 is a really great scenic drive. We spent three nights at the Family Camp on Tyndall AFB. We explored the area, ate some Apalachicola oyster at a small hole-in-the-wall oyster bar in Port-St.-Joe called Baileys. they were exquisite. We relaxed and had a great time watching the squirrels and listening to the F-15s flying overhead. the only down side was that the...

Mar 16, 2012 - Still on the Forgotten Coast

The day we left the Blakeney State Park near the Spanish Fort (just on the lake) marsh area across from Mobile, we scooted down to Fairhope. Jean & Chuckles enjoyed the great Park by the ocean while I hunted out the nifty spots downtown including Section Street (mostly antique shops)and the French Quarter - lots of balconies, petites boutiques et al. Wonderful! We both agree Fairhope along with Destin are now our favorite places! We were there only one afternoon and fell in love with the beauty of the town. Jean had easily driven the RV...

Feb 22, 2012 - Florida Panhandle

Raining again today! Never has so much rain fallen 6 inches in 12 hours when were camping in Destin at St Andrews State Park - or is it because we are in north Florida - the Panhandle. Whatever! The whole coast is outstanding with white sugar sand and lofty dunes. Destin remains one of our favourite stop-overs and we return tomorrow from Pensacola to the Open Road RV garage/store to have the hydraulic pump fixed that was damaged in our attempts to extricate ourselves from a sink hole in a Dundee campground. Sure! When we buried the keel of...
