One of the great things about this RV full timing lifestyle is being able to see friends and family. Because we were in the military, we have made friends from all over the country. And while we have been in Florida the panhandle / lower Alabama area we have been able to get together with some friends.
It has been great.
We have been friends with Bill and Linda since 1979. They were missionaries to U.S. servicemen and women in Korea in Kunsan. Pam and I were stationed at Kunsan AB and both on active duty at the time. Over the years we have kept up with them and have seen what a wonderful impact they have had on people's lives over the years.
They are in Pensacola for a few weeks while on furlough from Korea and we wanted to get over here to see them. We had them over to the Roadrunner for dinner one night and then we attended the first night of their home church's Missions Conference.
Here is a shot of us with Bill and Linda.
What a hoot!
We learned about 'roll tossin' and 'passarounds' and had some great food in a very unique atmosphere.
And the 'passarounds' are servers who bring: fried okra, black eyed peas, or fried onions and potatoes around and serve it up at no extra cost. If you haven't been to Lambert's it is a short 35 minute drive from Pensacola and worth the trip.
Then yesterday I was sitting here in the Roadrunner doing some monthly financials when Darrell came up on Facebook and said he and Judy were near by in Summerdale, AL. I found Darrell's website back in 2008 when I was first researching and learning about RVing. But we had never met and this was our chance! It was about 45 minutes from Pensacola so we hopped in the car and went to see them at their place at the Escapees RV park.
We went out to eat at Big Daddy's Grill in nearby Fairhope, AL. It was another great place to eat.
That's it for another edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us. Until next time...
