We left Zephyrhills at 9 am this morning to begin our RVing adventures. After driving for about 6 hours we stopped in Ashburn, GA to rest up for the night. We are staying at the Ashburn Inn and RV Park right off Interstate 75. Our drive today was uneventful (Thank you God), we did drive in some pretty harsh rain storms for about 2 hours between FL and GA borders. This is Toby's first long trip and he was quite hyper, I'm sure he'll do better as time goes on. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will drive for about 3 hours to Stone Mountain Park in GA and stay over night there and do a little sight seeing. It's still hard to believe that we are actually doing what we've always dreamed of. We will try to post some pictures as we are traveling so people can travel along with us.

Hard to believe we have only 1 day left before leaving for SD. We finished our last day of work on Friday the 18th and it has taken me most of the week to unwind. We have been very busy this week getting ready for travel and visiting on and off with our friends from NY at Maderia Beach, so haven't had to much downtime. We were so happy to see our NY friends, and hope we'll still be able to get together next year like we have the last 3 years. Have just a few things to finish up tomorrow, like last minute groceries, haircuts, etc. We'll put our slide-outs in tomorrow nite and hook the truck to the 5th wheel so Monday morning we just need to have breakfast and be on our way. We plan on driving to Georgia the first day and then maybe go to Stone Mountain on Tuesday. Not sure about the rest of our journey, but will keep everyone informed as we go. I told Bob I don't think the realization of what we are doing will kick in with me until we actually get on the road Monday.

Thursday, April 17 Tomorrow (Friday, the 18th), is our last day at our jobs. We will be visiting with our friends from NY during next week before heading to South Dakota on Monday, April 28th. We are very excited about our new adventure, and also nervous. I worry more about things than Bob does. While we have jobs May through September 15, we don't have definite jobs lined up for the winter. Bob says we will be fine and we will find something, I'm sure he's right, I just always tend to be the worry wart and Bob always is right about these things. We are excited about traveling across parts of the U.S. that we have never been before to reach South Dakota. I decided to create this blog so friends can follow our journey not only to SD but also all our future travels as well. While we have been in FL for the last 2 1/2 years and have made many memories and friends, it is time we move on. Bob and I are both getting restless here and the open road and new adventures are calling us. Stay tuned as we continue our new adventures and new life.
