Sep 27, 2018 - Yellow Ribbon Around The Old Oak Tree

We were on or way after Norma had sutures removed from the back of her head from a pilar cyst surgery last week. We drove up to Thomasville, Ga just across the state line of Florida's panhandle area. We wanted to see some old homes from the 1800's and of course the old oak tree.

KODIAK'S ADVENTURE

Oct 4, 2013 - Small Cakes and Whales?

10/4/2013. Friday. Small Cakes and Whales? Our last day on vacation was a gastronomical success. This morning we drove into downtown Thomasville and stopped at the visitor center to see what's what in this beautiful ville. The Navigator spoke with a woman there who had a lot of good ideas of what to do in Thomasville in one day. We decided to walk around town and,let me tell you, this is a beautiful town with many of the original buildings still in use since the 1890's and they were well maintained. Thomasville is a charming town and the...

Oct 25, 2012 - Bottom of GA

Just a few shots in passing... I know the distance we drive is really puny but it sure feels good to have some morning and afternoon left on both ends of the drive!!! ^_^ We're at Sugar Mill RV park... about 7 miles north of Thomasville. It's a huge almost state park like stand of tall pines and level lots. Drawback.... highway #19 goes right past it... plus is it's flat as a pancake so the trucks just sail past without doing any 'gear things'. Looks like Thomasville itself would be fun to come back to sometime! (www.thomasvillega.com) All...

Jul 28, 2011 - Made it to Georgia no thanks to GPS...

After another very hot (due to engine heat and hot sun) and a slow journey (also due to engine heat and sun!) we finally arrived at Sugar Mill RV park. We could have saved 90mins and a 50 mile detour round tiny roads if we hadn't trusted the GPS which went into a headspin and took us right past the park and a huge loop. Anyway, glad to have finally left Florida behind, get to a new State, and be able to rest before setting off again in the am. Another plumbing leak fixed this morning, now we're off again. We won't miss the damn mosquitos...

Apr 2, 2009 - Side Trip to Thomasville While Camping in Tallahassee

On Monday the 30th we had planned to leave Tallahassee and head west to our next campground, Three Rivers State Park near Sneads, Florida, at the confluence of the Chattahoochee, Flint, and Apalachicola rivers. These three rivers form Lake Seminole, and our campground was near the lakeshore. Because of heavy rains in the area over the last several days, some of the campsites had been washed out. The weather reports for the next several days were for continuing thunderstorms, local flooding, and possible tornadoes. We decided that this state...

Jan 5, 2009 - Thomasville, Georgia

We left Perry this morning after a leisurely hitch-up which also involved considerable conversation with a couple of other travelers on their way to Florida. Both of the gentlemen currently live in Kentucky and are on their annual pilgrimage to Florida for the winter. One of these gentlemen is retired from Nashville Electric and actually knows one of our RV friends. It is a small world. We arrived at our destination for tonight just after 1 PM. Thomasville is proclaimed as the “city of roses”, but with the very limited amount of research I...

Dec 13, 2008 - Storms And Old Houses

We left Stone Mountain and headed to southern Georgia. Our first stop was Pine Mountain, GA (east central) and F.D. Roosevelt State Park. Our experience with Georgia State Parks has been very good. All the sites have electrical and water hook-ups and a dump station, for when you leave. Pine Mountain is home to Callaway Gardens Resort. Callaway Gardens is an expansive resort with hotels, restaurants, spa, biking trails, lakes, golf course and sprawling gardens. You do not have to stay at the resort to tour the grounds. While we were there,...

Nov 28, 2006 - Thomasville, GA

On Nov. 28 we loaded up for the trip to Thomasville, GA. On our way out of the park, we noted that lots of people were waving to us. "Isn't that nice, they've come out to wave good-bye"....... NO STUPID - You left your TV Antenna up. What happened to that checklist..?? Our stay at Sugar Mill Plantation RV Park near Thomasville was another great relaxing stay. We were next to some ponds with a variety of waterfowl, mostly Canada Geese. We were also next to some cotton fields. I picked some native cotton just before we watch the harvest. I...
