Jun 20, 2020 - Creekfire resort

We had a good drive, Ray took 301 all the way north of Jacksonville and we avoided city traffic. We saw a long backup on the opposite side of I95 as we approached the Georgia line, they are checking for Covid 19 if you are coming into Florida. Georgia was more welcoming, the rest area was open, just the restrooms, the welcome part with tourist information was closed. Some people wore masks, we didn’t. We are on a long, level concrete pad and were escorted to our site. The guy next to us has an F150 platinum truck. Learning all about the RV,...

2020 Trip

Apr 1, 2020 - Savannah GA, CreekFire Motor Ranch

On the morning of April 1, we pulled out of Citra Florida heading toward Savannah GA. We arrived at CreekFire Motor Ranch at about 3 p.m. Very nice park and they are in progress adding another 100+ rv sites! All sites are good size. We had a nice pull through that was way longer than our coach and car in tow. This would be an awesome park to stay at while exploring the Savannah area. We hope to return here one day and do just that. Just an overnight stay this time. Tomorrow we should be back at the condo. 2-ole-buddies & Bentley

Jan 26, 2020 - Chilling and Cruising

Our camp hosting job came to an end on December 31st and we moved back up to the parking lot to boondock (dry camp) for a couple days. While we were there, a technician from Lippert came by to do some work on Mo’s suspension. You may remember that we had a couple issues with bolts coming out of the spring hangers – the tech addressed the issues and upgraded our suspension. We were very happy to have that taken care of. Then we moved back to a regular spot in the campground and relaxed for a couple weeks. We got to spend more time with the...

2020 Life in Our RV

Oct 29, 2019 - Back in Savannah!

After we left Mt. Airy, we decided to head straight to Savannah rather than making another overnight stop. It was a long day of driving, in the rain, but we made it to Skidaway Island State Park in Savannah just before dark. We parked in the main parking lot for a couple of nights since our host spot was still occupied by the outgoing hosts. The rangers came by to great us and welcome us back. The weather was wacky for a couple days with cool nights and then a warm Halloween. We moved back to our spot behind Bathhouse #3 and settled into...

2019 Life in our RV

Oct 14, 2019 - Savannah

We left early this a.m. and headed north on I 95. We drove along the coast through Jacksonville and on to Savannah. We were surprised by how marshy the coast is in places. We did go inland a little in Georgia. We took Hwy 16 into town turning off onto Martin Luther King BLVD on the outskirts of the historical district. We easily found the Visitors Center ( in the old train station) and the trolley depot across the street. With free parking ...and someone to look afyer our car...we booked an Overview Tour on the old white trolley. We were...

May 29, 2019 - final thoughts from Savannah

Final thoughts from Savannah As the time winds down from our two-month stay in Savannah, we have a little time to look back on our stay. First and foremost, we have absolutely LOVED being this close to Adam, Laura and all 5 of the grandkids. Our travels across the country for the last 2+ years have been everything we could have imagined (and more) but spending time with family has been something we have missed greatly. We have soaked up all the hugs, snuggles, giggles, laughs and love to carry us through the next 5 months until we return...

2019 Life in our RV

May 22, 2019 - Family time in Savannah

The reason we decided to come to Savannah to workamp is because this is where Steve’s son Adam and his family live. Adam and Laura have five children ranging from 17 years old down to 3 years old. We wanted to spend more time close to them and what better way to do that than to be camping less than 15 minutes from where they live! We were excited that shortly after we arrived and settled into our site, Adam, Laura and the kids came over to visit and we had a cookout. The kids were kind of confused by the fact that Nonna and Grampa live in...

2019 Life in our RV

May 21, 2019 - Workamping in Savannah

We have been in Savannah Georgia for almost two months – that is the longest we have stayed in one place in the RV since we hit the road two and one-half years ago. When we first made the commitment to come here to workamp (more on that topic in a bit) I was a little concerned that we would get hitch-itch (the need to move on down the road). But I am happy to say that we have really enjoyed being here and although we are ready to move on, it is not because we have been bored. So, what have we been doing for the last two months? Well,...

Apr 30, 2019 - Old Historic Savannah

We drove a short ways up Interstate 95 yesterday and stopped at Hunter Army Airfield near Savannah, Georgia. We visited historic Savannah today. There is too much to cover in this little blog. But, if interested, come on down to Savannah to get first hand experience. I was taught that Georgia was originally a penal colony with people from debtors' prisons being shipped to the colonies. Not so. The idea was discussed, but King George II issued a charter to James Oglethorpe to establish a colony to act as a buffer against the Spanish military...

2019 Summer and Fall

Apr 23, 2019 - Savannah, GA - CreekFire RV Resort - site 16

Our maiden voyage for this trip was pretty well without incident and we arrived here in Savannah in about three hours for the 158 mile trip. We did take the new toll road (which is currently free) which is completed from I-10 south to about five miles from our home and it was a lot easier than going up through Orange Park which had been our previous route to get to I-95 north even though we missed the I-296 bypass and had to stay on I-10 all the way into Jacksonville. As it was all interstate with little to see Doris didn't take any travel...

Apr 3, 2019 - eating and walking

Over half of one of the tourist brochures we picked up about Savannah listed "must visit" restaurants. Savannah is a foodie town. We took this as a sign and booked a food tour. It's always fun to learn about a town through its cuisine. Savannah has a long and colorful history. It was part of the Georgia colony founded by James Ogelthorope in 1733 as a planned community. His intention was to provide a place for religious freedom and an opportunity for convicts who had been arrested for petty crimes like stealing food. The city was laid out...

Mar 30, 2019 - Creekfire

Our next destination after leaving Americus was Savannah Georgia. Savannah is a beautiful historic town on the Georgia coast. We have been to Savannah several times, and it happens to be where Steve’s son Adam and his family live. Adam is completing his medical residency at a local hospital in Savannah in June. Our oldest grandson, Cale, will be graduating from high school in May so we made plans to be in Savannah for a couple months to spend time with Adam, Laura and all five of the grandkids. Our first stop in Savannah was Creekfire...
