Our 2014/2015 Camping Season In Review, Vol. 3 of 5
After spending a good part of the last eight weeks camping in Florida, we decided to head back up into Georgia for Round #6 (January 11th thru January 21st, 2015) of our camping season. Our first stop was at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park near Cordele for a three night stay. Gary's sister and brother-in-law joined us for our first night. They had a really nice room in the resort within the park. We had a beautiful waterfront campsite. From there, we headed further north to High Falls State Park near the town of Jackson. We spent five nights there. Like we so often do when we're in Georgia, we camped at General Coffee State Park near Nichols for three nights on our way back home. We LOVE General Coffee. It's still our favorite Georgia State Park. Gary and Dodge traveled a total of 1223 miles. I tagged along for 693 of those miles, and the remaining 530 miles was traveled without me. Round #7, January 29th thru February 8th, 2015. This was another all-Florida (panhandle of the state) round. Our first stop was Three River State Park near Sneads for a four night stay. Following that was a three night stay at Rocky Bayou State Park near Niceville. That was as far west as we went to during our camping season. I had to have emergency surgery while we were there for a crack in my frame. It was a beautiful little park, but I'll always remember it for my medical issue. After that, we headed back east, stopping for four nights at Florida Caverns State Park near Marianna. Florida Caverns and Three Rivers are actually very close to each other. A total of 1370 miles was traveled during Round #7. I joined in for 729 of those miles, while Gary and Dodge traveled 641 miles without me. Stay tuned. More to come!
