Alabama Caravan

06 Mar

After 3 months in Orlando, we were itching to get out of the city and explore someplace new. Too early (read: too cold) to head north, too expensive ($1100+ per month?!) to head to the gulf of Florida, and still packed solid with no space for us (where we’d want to stay) on the east coast of Florida, we had the opportunity to join friends in a legitimate RV caravan to the gulf coast of Alabama!

While waiting for the other families, we headed out of our monthly spot in Orlando up to Juniper Springs Campground in Ocala National Forest for some much needed quiet time in the forest. Three nights later, we all headed out of our respective spots and met up on the highway. So fun!

We’ve heard the praises for southern Alabama from many people in our travels this past year. Maybe we’d heard them before but we weren’t listening… Alabama? Two and a half years on the road has stripped us of most of our state-prejudice as we’ve realized the beauty in every single place we’ve been. So here we are at a (so far) fabulous RV resort on the Alabama shore for the next month with friends! I have to go. The hot tub is calling.

The picture is we three families at a rest stop in the panhandle of Florida. The Clan of Parents rig is in the middle. πŸ™‚

    Y’all are awesome. I love watching your adventures and I think about you often. πŸ™‚ Is north Texas on your route, by chance?

      Hi Mary Beth!
      Thanks. πŸ™‚ We will be passing through Texas again around late November—ish. We’ll be in AL for the month and then slowly headed east and north to spend the summer/fall in NH with some side trips. After a family wedding at the end do October, we’ll head back south and toward AZ.
