Ontario to Florida – and stuff in between!

We left Ontario November 9th – just the day before the 1st snow flakes fell! Chuck does a great job watching the weather as the dreaded snow is what we always want to avoid. So far the weather follower has been right on! We’re headed to Riverbend RV Resort for 3 months, arriving on December 1st, but our initial travels are taking us into a rather circuitous route…

C: Let’s go for breakfast.
J: At 7 a.m.? I can’t eat – it’s too early! Let’s just drive around – again…
