Finally: Full Time on the Road

September 29, we left behind the beautiful property that George and Bonnie had rented to us.  Their house and property was an integral part of our successful transition to the full time lifestyle as the garages and RV site were perfect for our needs.  We traveled to George and Bonnie's ranch in Levy County near Bronson Florida and spent a few days.  They also have several RV hook-ups (power and water) on this property.

Parked along George and Bonnie's House

Prior to our trip to Fort Desoto Park, I purchased a Tire Pressure Monitor System for the fifth wheel.  The TPMS system monitors the tire pressure and temperature and provides a little piece of mind.  On of my greatest concerns is tire problems on the fifth wheel, as I've read a lot of stories involving blowouts and the damage that results.

After a few wonderful days with Bonnie and George, we set out for the Panhandle of Florida with a destination of Pensacola to visit Ashley and Andrew in their new home. We left our car behind as we planned to return in a few weeks for a joint adventure to Georgia.  Enroute we stopped for a couple of days in Marianna Florida at Florida Caverns State Park.   We picked this park as it was one of the few state parks off I-10 about mid-way to Pensacola.

This park is very typical of Florida parks at this time of year with lots of mosquitos, humidity and sand.  We enjoyed our mountain bike rides through the park, but did not visit the actual caverns.  Perhaps we will make a concerted effort to visit the caverns if we ever return.
