Apr 28, 2018 - Wauchula, FL

Sat, 28 Apr We're baaaack!!! We docked at Fort Lauderdale early this morning and disembarked the ship around 0930. Once clear of immigration & customs we hailed a taxi to the Fort Lauderdale Enterprise agency and picked up a Jeep SUV. Its huge rear compartment swallowed our luggage and we were soon on our way to Wauchula. We arrived at the storage yard around 1430 and found both Carpes to be safe and sound. No intruders, either two, six, or more legged, and no water, mildew, or other nasties. They both started with no problem and by 1600 we...

Feb 2, 2018 - TTN Peace River, Wauchula, FL

It was an easy breezy 153 mile drive, straight south on I-75 to US Hwy-64 east and to the resort! We'll be here for 2 weeks. While here, we'll be busy connecting with friends for lunch dates, cousins, and even some great apes! It's been quite some time since we've been here. It's a nice resort, a large resort with a variety of sites, shaded or sunny, FHU or partial hook-ups. We chose a FHU site facing west so we can enjoy the warmth of the sun, that we've missed for so long! You know, if you are out here the road long enough, you run into...

Wed, 03 Jan A Very short trip... In fact, it was fewer than two miles. Late this afternoon we moved Carpe Diem to a storage unit just a mile or so up the road. We'll spend the nite boondocking in the storage area so we can get an early start tomorrow morning. This way, much of the storage drudgery (e.g., covering the tires) is already done. Earlier today we drove Carpe Dinkum to Avon Park and picked up our Enterprise rental, a Chrysler 300. We're not overly impressed with it, but it should hold all of our luggage and that's the...

Mon, 01 Jan Happy New Year... We welcomed 2018 parked at the Wauchula Thousand Trails park. We've been here since before Christmas and are busily getting ready for our extended absence from the country. We'll be on a four month cruise circumnavigating the world and it requires considerable planning. We're stressed right now...

Dec 20, 2017 - Wauchula FL

Wed, 20 Dec: Our final road day... Today is our last day on the road for this journey. We awoke early at the Live Oak Wal*Mart only to find it was still nite. The time change moved daybreak back an hour. So, we took our time puttering about with tea, breakfast, and getting things ready to travel. Nevertheless, we did roll out of the parking lot at 0735 and headed toward I 10. There was a not inconsiderable amount of fog about, some patches heavier than others, but none so thick as to be dangerous. We spent our final 35 miles eastbound on I...

Thu, 05 May: On the "hard" again... We're back! After 55 days aboard the ms Prinsendam we returned to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale Florida this morning. We delayed our disembarkation for a bit, eventually going ashore about half past eight. We located our luggage with no problem and cleared immigration and customs without a hitch. We took a cab to the airport where we got our rental car and headed west out of the "big city" to US 27 north and then FL 66 west to US 17 and the Thousand Trails Peace River park. We stopped for lunch...

Mar 29, 2016 - Wauchula, FL - Peace River RV Resort

3/16/16 thru 3/29/16 Wauchula, FL Thousand Trails Peace River resort in Wauchula, FL has become a regular stop for us while in Florida. We’re particularly drawn to this resort because two of our friends, Jean Pryor & Sandy Story (the girls) winter here. Our timing was not the best because the girls were in Georgia for a few rallies, but we did get to spend some time with them before we left; including a lunch on Ralph’s birthday. Wauchula is about sixty miles east of Sarasota so we focused on that area for a visit. We visited Fisherman’s...

Sat, 27 Feb: Almost there... Today is scheuled to be a short day. Our original goal was to drive 100 miles or so to Bartow and overnite at the Wal*Mart. We picked Bartow as it was a perfect lunch rendezvous with Orrin and June. These two folks were tablemates on our 2009 world cruise and are regular winter visitors in New Port Richie. They were heading back home and we determined that our routes would cross in Bartow. Perfect. We departed Wildwood about 0920 & returned to I 75 via FL 44. I 75 south twenty or so mines to US 98. It was a...

Jan 12, 2016 - Wauchula, FL - Peace River RV

12/23/2015 thru 1/12/16 Wauchula, FL Our Wauchula, FL visit has us back at the Peace River Thousand Trails Resort. This park has about 400 sites, (200) 30 amp & water and (200) 50 amp water & sewer sites. The 30 amp sites are in the lower part of the park and are subject to flooding, both from the river and heavy rain. Since these are grass sites with a dirt base as opposed to the 50 amp sites that are grass with a sand & gravel base, the 30 amp sites are usually avoided. When we arrived there were only a couple of 50 amp sites available...

Jan 6, 2016 - Leaving Wauchula

After arriving at the SKP park in Wauchula and planning to stay for four months through the winter, we get the call from Jojoba Hills RV resort near Temecula CA. We got on the list last summer thinking that we probably would not get to the top of the list until next summer. We were in Wachula for 10 days when we got the call that we were being offered membership and a site. Well we jumped on it of course. I am not happy being back in the socialist state of California but it is only an hour away from our granddaughter, Audrey. So we packed...

Dec 20, 2015 - Change of plans

Just 10 days after arriving in Wauchula, we get the call from Jojoba Hills RV Resort in Aguanga, CA near Temecula. Our name has come up on the membership waiting list. That was quick! So now we have a RV site in a very nice resort for as long as we want to stay. This will be our winter home while we are on the west coast. Im not thrilled with being in the state of California but we will be about an hour away from our granddaughter, Audrey, and our son and daughter-in-law. Its a good trade-off. The place is beautiful, too. So we will pack up...

Dec 2, 2015 - Our winter home

Finally...after a wonderful 8500 mile trip over 8 months, we have completed the full circle and arrived at our winter home in Wauchula, Florida. Check our the map showing our path. We will be camped here for the next four months in an Escapees co-op park. Nice, clean, well maintained with friendly people. We are comfortable in this area since we have spent the last two winters in Sebring, which is a few miles down the road. We both have a list of chores to complete while staying here, including cleaning and maintenace. Gotta prepare for...
