Somewhere Near Tallahassee



We are spending Thursday night somewhere near Tallahassee Florida. Another night of parking lot camping. Wednesday night we stayed at the rest area off Rt. 10 in Mississippi near Louisiana. The security guard directed us to a nice area “reserved” for RV parking. That was great, but sometime in the night tractor trailer rigs moved in all around us. We woke to the sound of their diesels running all night.

I don't really blame them. They have to spend the night somewhere. Long distance trucking keeps the country running, but drivers are under appreciated. It's a hard and lonely life on the road.

Thursday I stopped into a sporting goods store and got a 100 count container of soft disposable ear plugs. Those diesels aren't going to keep me awake another night.

Friday and Saturday night we are booked into a State Forest near Jacksonville Florida. We've never been there before. There aren't a lot of reviews on the campground, but cell phone service is supposed to be bad. If I don't post for a couple days it's probably due to lack of service. Sunday night we'll be in a different place, one that wifi service near the office.

Recently I turned 60 while on the road. It's just a number . . . a pretty big number. While I feel pretty good, it's a reminder that the clock is running. There are so many adventures to have yet, so I'd better not put them off much longer.

Life is good.

  2. Hey, 1+ younger than me. The bucket list seems to to be too much as time goes by. Some of those things should have been done when in my 20's. I've been a prisoner of Oregon all my life, but fortunately, one can do a lot of different things in Oregon. I just bought my dads monster truck and camper, and plan on using it a lot to escape Oregon once in awhile. Trust me, I will not drive south. Alaska sounds about right, or Montana. Who knows? But first I get rid of this damn job.

  4. You're much younger than I and still have plenty of time to go adventuring. I refuse to sit and mold I think a lot of it has to do with attitude and with yours, you'll be here for a long time. Happy Birth day and blessed be.
