It is August 7th and we have pulled into the Corbin Kentucky Koa.  It is a nice campground but not at all big rig friendly.  We got a long pull thru but it was in between trees and everyone there helped us to get in.  It is Fri. nite and we decide to spend three nites there.  It is difficult to get weekend sites in the summer which is the only time they are open in these northern states.  On Monday morning Joel, the best driver in history manages to pull out without any help and we keep going south down I-75.  We make it into Forsyth, Ga. at about 4pm and get a site, pull thru, extremely unlevel but we don't put the jacks down and just plug into the electric.  This campground makes pizza and wings so we order dinner and they deliver it to us.  It is a Koa, but the sites and the roads going in are extremely unlevel.  Prior to us arriving they had a big thunderstorm and we are in the midst of mud.  Oh, well, it is only for one nite.  We pull out early the next morning and reach our destination in northern Florida, Leesburg.  This is a real country town.  We are staying at the Holiday Travel Rv Resort on us27 and country road 33.  It is practically across from beautiful Lake Harris and this park is a mixture of rv sites and park models.  They also have 210 boat slips so you can keep your boat here.  There is a wide range of activities for the winter.  We are on a grass site at least 40 feet wide by 60 feet long.  Our cargo trailer is beside us as well as our car and there is enough room for yet another rv.  Today we ate at Sonny's bbq, which we have not been to in four years.  Then we went to my favorite supermarket, Publix.  It is hot and humid, but it is august after all and we are glad to be back.  Starting a new adventure, looking for a permanent place to live and to sell the rv.  


  1. Ron and I wish you and Joel the best of luck in your next chapter of life. I know you've been over some bumps in the road but I know you'll both remember the special, memorable moments of travel through this country. You saw some beautiful sights and met some wonderful folks in your travels. I learned a lot from your blog and thanks for taking the time to write your experiences. We'll see you in Florida this winter.

  2. so looking forward to seeing you guys too. We won't be far from each other. We are practically down the road from Alliance.

  3. Read your comments about removing vinyl mask. We are in need of doing this. Can you email or call us with the name of company. We live in Florida, and this sounds like a great solution.

    Thank you so much. This would be a lifesaver- maybe literally. Frannie
