WOW, What A Trip!
Friday morning, we packed up and headed out of General Coffee State Park. It was sad to leave, and sad to know that our longest camping excursion ever was coming to an end. It was a trip to remember, that's for sure. We were gone for 19 days, drove through parts of 10 states, camped in 6 states, and travelled over 3,000 miles. We met new people, made new friends, enjoyed our time with old friends, spent way too much money, and had way too much fun. There were no mechanical issues of any kind, and the van got decent fuel mileage for as old and tired as it is. If it sounds like a perfect trip, I assure you that it was. Everything here at home was fine when we arrived. Gary had been a bit concerned with that. We camped out in the yard when we got home, and when Saturday rolled around, the van and I got our much needed baths. With that done, Gary put us back in the garage. Notice in the picture that my air conditioner is back in place. It didn't go with us on the trip, but it's hot and muggy here in Florida, and Gary can't sleep without it. Definitely a big difference between 80 degree nights here at home, and 40 degree nights in New York. We like it cold, and we're looking forward to some cooler weather here before long. Our next scheduled camping trip is in mid-November, but I'm not sure if we will have to cancel. Gary is having eye surgery on October 28th, and we'll have to wait and see if he's feeling up to the trip. At least it's a short trip to where we are planning to go. I've been busy all day catching up with my blog posts, so please keep reading and enjoying the pictures as you scroll down the page. Live from the Green Acres Garage once again, this is your old buddy Toaster. I'll talk with you soon.
