Big Cow

They grow cows as big as palm trees here in Georgia. This is the type you may see in front of a restuarant. This one is setting in a drive way here in Ashburn,Georgia.

Strawberry Picking

We went out to a Strawberry Farm today and picked some fresh strawberries. If you ever get a chance to do this by all means pick yourself some fresh berries. They were so good and sweet. So much better than what you buy in the stores.

We are now in the Ashburn Rv Park for awhile. The park is a PassPort America park so the price for a full hook up is $7.95 a night. The book list a pool which they have but its not in working order and they have no plans of opening it up.
Daily average now is $6.80 a night.

Friday and Saturday

We stopped in Valdosta,Georgia to visit our daughter(Sherry) for a few nights. She lives in a nice aparment devlopment next door to the Movie Theaters. So I talked to the manager of the theater and ask if it would be alright if I could stay parked a couple of nights in the parking lot and he said no problem. So to make sure I wasn't breaking any of the towns laws I called the Police Deparment to make sure. They said that there was no law against parking on private property as long as no one complains. So this makes Valdosta,Georgia very RV friendly.


By the time we got ready and emptied all the tanks it was noon before we were on our way. We stopped on the roadside for a bite to eat then onward again. We arrived in Thomasville,Georgia and stayed in the WalMart parking lot for the night.
Daily average $7.34.


During our walking around the park we came upon the picnic area which was nice and clean with another great view of the lake. We later came back with our loungers and sat out in the sun for a couple of hours. The daily average is now $7.68.

Tuesday morning was simply beautiful with the sun coming up over Seminole Lake and the birds singing and the men going out in their motor boats for a day of fishing.

Well we did leave the Flea Market this time. We took a slow drive and ended up just north Of Sneads,Florida at the Three Rivers State Park. The park has water and electric connections for $12.00 a night. Half price for Florida residents. So My price was $6.57 including the tax. I have a Florida winter resident drivers license.
So the daily average this summer trip is $7.79.

Trash and treasure

Its amazing what you can see in flea markets. I guess this is what attracts people to them. In this picture is a very large chandelier. The tag on it says it came out of the old Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. How does a big chandelier like that end up in Gulf Breeze,Florida. Price tag $800.00. Posted by Hello

Today was the day to go to the laundromat to do the laundry. After we got thru we stopped here at this place along the road that we have passed several days. Slow cooked real pit Bar-B-Q. We had the pulled pork dinner with baked beans. These places along the roadside taste so much better than when you buy in a restaurant. You know its going to be good when you see the pit outside with the smoke flowing in the air. We also knew it was going to be fresh because we always saw a crowd at this place. The average for the camping 17 days out is $7.13 a day.

Got a deal

Today we were suppose to have left the Flea Market. Not so. When I went to tell them that we were leaving they said they hated to see us go. So I told them give me a break on the site rent and I would stay another week. Guess what? They did. Sometimes it pays to do a little bargaining. We got the site lowered from $10.00 to $7.00 so as of now the average camping stay is $8.25 a night. The great thing about fulltiming is no schedule to keep.

Time to Move Again

Well tomorrow is the day to leave the Flea Market camping that we have enjoyed for nine days. I report that the flea markets will let you stay for 5-6 dollars a night with electric hookup. We had a full hookup site so we had to pay $10.00 a night,still a pretty good price. A few people want to know how much it costs to fulltime. I will start reporting what the average we pay for the camping part of it. I don't think you should have to pay 25 or 35 dollars a night to camp. Of course my wife thinks I'm cheap. As of today 12 days out we've paid $100.26 that is an average of $8.35 a night. Some might think that is good but,I think it needs to come down a bit. We'll have to work on it.

Flea Markets

Did you know you can stay overnight or longer at a lot of flea markets for as little as 5 or 6 dollars with electric. These are not resort type places but they are a lot cheaper. We are spending at least a week here for that price, there are two other campgrounds in the area that charges 32-34 a night. We are a short ways from the gulf beaches.

This is whats left of a condo complex after the hurricane on Navarre Beach. It was very sad to see all the damage that this area had. All the homes and condo on the beachside had so much damage. These places will all have to been torn down and rebuild. The long pier is closed. Theres one gas station and one restaurant open. There is sand all over the place and the beach is a mess.
