Default Today's the Day!

We've finally wrapped things up and today's the day when we start our first big trip in our new Bird!

We are both so excited that we can't sleep so we decided, why lay in bed?
Let's get up and get going!

Heading to Orlando, for a final appt at Josams, and spending the night there at the Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake. (only seemed approperiate ) Next night is Jekyl Island, GA, then Charleston, SC, then Four Paws Kingdom, NC (a treat for our hounds) and then onwards up the Appalachians. Will take pics of the fall color and keep a blog for those who want to follow us.

Thank you everyone since the beginning for all your help.

We are doing it!

If you are heading east on I-4 from Orlando and can spare any time please stop by - we would love to see your coach. Also interested in your experience at Josams as I am planning on making an appointment. We are about 4 miles off the interstate on the southwest corner of DeLand (1649 Fatio Rd. - telephone 386-873-4496).
Thanx, KC

Hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip. I have a couple of suggestions for you if you haven't already made reservations and are heading to these areas. Asheville, NC has a campground called Campfire Lodgings. If you are in the area this is a must do. Michele and I got one of the premium sites (#4) and it was spectacular, is all I can say. Here is a link to my previous post with pics on this. http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...pfire+lodgings

Then if you are in Charleston, the James Island County Park is super! Nice place, with some pull-thrus, I pulled my 24' trailer in there with the coach and didn't have a problem. The staff there are the nicest you will meet. It is close to town and all the sights. Then top it off with a leash free dog park by a lake or pond. The dogs will go nuts running loose, ours did, anyway. Here is the link to that http://www.ccprc.com/index.aspx?nid=68.

KC, we'd love to stop by to see you and Emma for a few. Thanks for the kind invite.

Thank you Jim for your well wishes.

James Island is where we are planning on staying! We heard it's a huge park, with trails and that the dogs would love it. This trip is their vacation too! I don't know how they've put up with us.

The Campfire Park in Ashville I didn't know about, so we will probaby try to stay one night at 4 Paws Kingdom and will try that, if we can get in. Thanks for the reccomendation.

I was thinking our next stop might be Natural Arch Falls, at least I think the name was something like that. I have it on my google map places. They have a Conservation Camp there, no services but it's supposed to be beautiful, peaceful and quiet. I'm going to give them a call to see if they can fit in a big rig and how the roads are getting in. There are a couple more family style campgrounds there as well, Jelly Stone with water slides etc but didn't appeal to me as much as our kids are not with us and grownups now.

Then I think we will then head toward Lancaster and stay on a campground by an Amish farm out in the country near Paradise or Intercourse.

Don't tell anyone but that's Dee's nickname for me, Amish.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to write and advise. We appreciate any reccomendations anyone might have.

amish

Jennifer & Darrell:

Have a blast, and good luck on your "first big trip" in your LXi.

It sounds like you have everything planned out well. Boy ! you two sound like you where sure "excited" and starting that time of the day is probably a good idea anyway because of not sleeping because of excitement.

Happy travelling, and safe trip. Keep us informed. (p.s. "everyone loves pictures")

Jennifer and Darrell-

I've been working a lot in the PA/Lancaster area. Depending on when you are coming up here we might be able to get together. I might even introduce you to Shane!
