We finished our workamping season at the Moab KOA on October 31.  On November 1, we started the journey back to Florida to see Family and friends. This trip consisted of 6 overnight stops on our route. We were blessed with perfect traveling weather each and every day, thank goodness. We traveled on average about 300 miles a day.

The dogs travelled great this trip, with our little Abby girl only getting sick one day.  The snuggled into their travel positions in the morning and stayed settled until we stopped for breaks and fuel.  We did things a little differently this time regarding both the dogs and ourselves and that was paying better attention to food choices.  That made a world of difference for all of us.  Jim cooked up a couple of crockpot meals before we hit the road, and we ate fresh foods for lunches instead of daily sandwiches and lunch meats.  Instead we had lots of veggies, home made hummus, pretzels and things like that. We have always cooked food for our dogs in addition to their kibble, we just limited their choices a bit to consist mainly of meats and rice or potatoes.  I believe that helped a great deal over the course of our week long journey.

We researched our route and chose campgrounds close to the highway with pull thrus so we didn’t have to unhook.  Truth be known, we got very lucky with our choices and our sites.  Each of the campgrounds were big rig friendly, easily accessible and had the basic amenities that we look for in an overnight stop.  We don’t worry much about WiFi, cable or pools when we travel, just a nice place to park.

Our list is as follows:

Day 1- Grants/Cibola Sands KOA, Grants, NM

Day 2- Tucumcari KOA, Tucumcari, NM

Day 3- Wichita Falls RV Park, Wichita Falls, TX

Day 4- Shreveport/Bossier City KOA, Shreveport, LA

Day 5-Okatoma RV Resort, Hattiesburg, MS

Day 6- Tallahassee RV, Tallahassee, FL

Day 7- Orlando/Kissimmee KOA, Kissimmee, FL

We will spend a few days in Kissimmee to visit our family, see our grandson and catch up with the many friends we have in the area.  We also used some time to get caught up with doctors and vet appointments. After a few days of R&R, we will head off again for the next leg of our trip with our final destination being the outer banks of North Carolina for the winter.
