We are going west into Alabama, then perhaps Mississippi, or maybe even Louisiana for a while before going back to Florida for the winter. You know we can’t plan that far ahead, but we will stay on the east side of the Mississippi River this year.
It was noon before we got going and checked out of Topsail Hill State Park in Florida and drove only 100 miles to our new temporary home in Summerdale, Alabama.
It’s looking pretty gloomy and the humidity is almost 100% but temperatures have been 70 or below that all day.
Our destination is in the country, away from the Interstate Highway System that we like to stick to when driving the RV but the drive was good, straight roads and little traffic. Cotton fields are abundant, and I think we are seeing peanut fields too as this is peanut growing country. But I’ve never seen a peanut field before so not sure.
We are members the Escapees RV Club, a total support network for All RVers. They offer many services for travelers and also have some RV parks of their own. Without a reservation, but with a little research, we were pretty sure they would have a spot for us, even if it was dry camping. They did have a full-hookup site with 50 amp electricity that we could use for a week. Weekly rates are cheaper than day by day so we took the week. Not sure what we will do while we are here, but we’ll check it out.
