Yep, it's that time of year again. We've had a very mild Winter in east TN so far this Season, but why stick around if you can go south or southwest and hopefully get back into shorts, beach bars, fishing and boating. We've spent two winters in The SW and last winter in FL for six weeks. It's back to Florida. Instead of scurrying around at the last minute loading up in 20 degree weather like last year we were able to get a jump on things these last few days that have been in the sixties and almost hit seventy yesterday. Almost everything is aboard now with the exception of clothes, food and things that might not like the cold. This year is going to be a different story. We're not going as far south, no Keys this trip. We are Driving less and staying in State Park Campgrounds more, no private parks, well maybe one if we stop in at Hilton Head. A big change will be towing a vehicle. This will be a new experience, not the towing part but loosing some maneuvering capability...so we broke the bank and ordered a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, soft top. It's not a Rubicon but it's pretty sweet. Had it for about 3 months and have been doing the DIY getting it tow worthy. Taking the Achilles inflatable boat and motor again but instead of a hitch platform the gear is in the Jeep this year. It will be nice to setup "camp" not have to breakdown and have a vehicle to do more in depth "exploring". More flexibility. As it stands now, If the weather cooperates and stays in the fifties we visit Hilton Head for a couple of days. About an 8 hour drive. Fort Clinch State Park, Anna Maria Island, Fernandina Beach area. 10 days. Anastasia State Park, St Augustine area, 10 days. Gamble Rogers State Park, Flagler Beach, 14 days. Grayton State Park, lower panhandle 2 days. Topsail Hill State Park, Destin, 14 days. Looking forward to chillin at beach bars, grillin, surf fishing, eating seafood, hanging with friends, and rubber boating.
