From Savannah, we made a one-day trip to the place where will will camp for the Winter – Willow Lakes RV and Golf Resort in Titusville, Florida. We sure were glad we had left the Midwest when we did. It was nice to see the Welcome to Florida sign – the Sunshine State even in the traffic of I95.
We Wintered at Willow Lakes three years ago – our first Winter of fulltiming -- and enjoyed the Park and the people a lot so why not return. We rented a site from an owner who will not be using it this Winter. Our site is nice with some trees, a view of a small pond through the windshield of the motor home, just enough of open shot to the sky to acquire the satellite signal, and hopefully is far enough from the golf course that we won’t be hit by any golf balls.
This completes our sea to sea travels over the past two and a half months. From the Olympic Peninsula of the Pacific Coast in early September, we traversed the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia now to arrive at the Space Coast of Florida near the Atlantic. That journey was one of 3,758 motor home miles. We averaged 8.1 miles per gallon meaning we burned 464 gallons of fuel. We have never come close to traveling so many miles in that amount of time, but it was well worth it to be able to spend some time with our first grandchild. The motor home now will sit until at least March
