It was a very good place to spend Christmas!
|The SKP RV park in Zolfo Springs|
The plan was to use this central Florida location as a hub to explore all around, as most everything I wanted to see is within two hours. It looked good on paper!
Things have not gone quite like we'd planned ...
When the Olds minivan died it took almost 2 weeks to find a suitable replacement. We had the RV & our bikes to explore, but if that had been the plan we'd have stayed somewhere closer to either coast and the beaches.
So, rather than exploring, we spent our time looking for a car...
We had five criteria for our new ride:
1) A 2001 or newer (it was replacing a 2000)
2) Lower mileage, 150,000 was the maximum
3) It needed a sunroof (that was my requirement.. more a hoped-for feature)
4) It had to be within our budget
5) It had to look good, my wife was the sole judge of that :-)
4 out of 5 is not bad :-)
We picked up a 2000 Toyota Camry in superb shape!
We had just enough time to finish the Florida paperwork for the car & our new Florida driver licenses before our month was up at this park.
If anyone is interested Florida charges new residents a special

Today we leave for Quartzsite, Arizona. January is the month for the RTR & the RV show & flea market in Quartzsite.
Our first stop is going to be Cobb Camp (Osceola NF up by Lake City, FL) to visit Cuzzen Dick and whoever else is at the roving winter SE GTG.
I did get the solar panels installed on the roof of the RV here, and that will make boondocking a lot more comfortable. Solar is magic!
We're going to be coming back to Florida, as there's still lots of exploring to do.

All in all it's been a good month here in Florida!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
