Today we say aloha to Florida for the remainder of our 2020 travel itinerary! After 20k miles in our tow vehicle (6800 on TT) exploring the East Coast – it’s time to go West! We’re all packed up, geared out, and ready to get some miles under us.
We’re making our way to Texas first, with a few quick stops in some new states for Caleb (Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana). We are excited to check out some Gulf beaches from the other side in Galveston, TX, and then are headed to hang with Chip & Jojo and explore Magnolia Market at the Silos and Waco, TX.
Our itinerary is somewhat “loose” after that, with plans to visit friends and make our way to some more exciting and new (to us) National Parks. We can’t wait to see what our travels have in store for us!
Well, we thought we were making our way out of Florida and we did (for a night). That’s the beauty of RV life…travel plans can change like the wind and we roll with it. Atleast, we are still making our way “West”, LOL.
Somehow we missed “qualifying” for our Georgia sticker (yet drove through it three times) so we made a point to sleep over one night in the state. We stopped at Eastbank Army Corps of Engineers Park for another incredible night of magnificent views. There is something so soothing about being on the water.
Eastbank Campground is located on Lake Seminole on the Georgia-Florida state line. Driving into the park was shocking and heartbreaking. The damage that remained from Hurricane Michael was devastating, with so many downed trees. The staff and volunteers at the park had done such an incredible job cleaning it up. The lake and surrounding area provide a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for camping, fishing, boating (with a launch), picnicking, hiking, biking, and incredible bird watching. Caleb really enjoyed riding his scooter around the park with all its hills.
We fall more and more in love with Army Corps of Engineers parks with everyone we visit. They are quickly making their way to the top of our list for favorite places to stay.
