Yes, for the past three years in a row we have made the journey from Washington state to Florida. Interestingly, it seems to happen about the same time in the Autumn each year. This is never planned, although it seems to be a routine now. Sometimes it is a bit meandering, this year it was done in less than two weeks!
Now we are hanging out in Florida recovering and may stay a while…then again, you never know with us! 😉
We have been enjoying time with family and friends and plenty of time in the water!
Next up…visiting Micky Mouse!
Moab in March is much nicer than Moab in May! Last year we visited Moab in May and it was a bit warm (hot), especially for boondocking. The weather is lovely this week, sunny and warm in the day with cooler sleeping temps at night!
We spent our first night at OK RV Park. After several days of boondocking we wanted some hook-ups and a long hot shower! This campground is on Passport America and a great deal at the PA rate. It is a well-maintained basic RV park with really clean bathrooms and good WiFi!
From there we spent some time boondocking on some great BLM and state trust land. We found the best cell reception at Klondike Bluff Road. Of course, cell reception varied greatly depending on location on Klondike Bluff Road or BLM 142. Some great views, too! Speaking of great views, we also enjoyed Willow Springs Trail. We found cell reception to be a bit more challenging there, plus it was more crowded.
And last, but certainly not least…we are enjoying a night at Portal RV Resort. We stayed here last year and are back again (we wrote a review on Campendium last year…it is even better this year!). Great place to get ready for some more boondocking! Tomorrow we’ll be attending Xscapers Moab Area Convergence! Seeing old friends and meeting new ones!
Favorite breakfast in Moab: Sweet Cravings ~ Organic coffee, locally sourced produce, baked goods from scratch…it is all good! They have lunch, too.
In between Cortez and Mancos Colorado resides this boondocking gem. With a simple name and great views, County Road 34. There are 12 sites. We found cell reception was better in the lower number sites. At first we parked in site 9, which is a pull-through and had some awesome views. However, the cell reception there was not enough to work. We moved to site 3 and had much better reception.
Washington to Florida…again in 2017!
In 2016 when we started our RV adventure we left Washington with a goal to get to Florida (actually the Florida Keys) by the end of the year and we did…just not all the travel happened in our RV. And here we are again finding ourselves in Florida…again not in our RV. But, hey…our goal is to experience the serendipity of life and travel…and it is all good…regardless of the how, why, and when…sometimes even the where.
If this year has taught us anything…and it has taught us a lot…it is this…
The rest is just stuff.
Stuff does not matter.
Enjoying spending time with family, friends, and the Atlantic Ocean!
