On the Road Again

From Macon, we headed south.  First we spent a few days at Grassy Pond Military Recreation Area outside of Valdosta, GA.  Yesterday we moved on down I-75 and are now at Bushnell, FL at the Escapees Sumter Oaks RV Park.

We really liked our three days at Grassy Pond.  It is a well maintained campground on some scenic real estate.  It is the off season for them and it was almost empty. We got there Sunday afternoon and stayed until Thursday morning for $20/night.
The site was level and we had full hookups with easy access for both TV and internet.  Across the street there were trees and shade but we liked it where we were.  They also had cable but we didn't bother hooking it up.  It was 30 minutes to Moody AFB from here and we went and checked things out there.  Nice base with a lot going on.

It was a good place to hang out for a few days.  I was able to work online and get some hours in and we did the laundry.  We also took advantage of the 3 mile hiking trail around the pond.
The 'pond' is really a small lake.
Yesterday we left about 8:00 AM and crossed the border into Florida.  I love stopping at the Visitor Center.  They serve orange juice and are always friendly folks there.  We also picked up a new map of the state.  The one we picked up last year is worn out.
We arrived at the Escapees park about 11:30 and checked in.  Looks like $18/night plus utilities which can't be more than $1 or $2.  The park is a bit older but still pretty nice and well maintained.  Looks like we beat a lot of the snow birds here.
We have plenty of room at our site and it didn't take long to set up.
I talked with my neighbor and got some good news/bad news.  They allow you to wash your RV here so I will be doing that either today or tomorrow.

Later in the day we saw a cute couple out for their evening walk
It is supposed to be sunny and 73 degrees today so we are looking forward to that.

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  We appreciate it and look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time...


  1. I think washing the RV is good news..I love getting our Hiker all spruced up,and have gotten yelled at by the RV park peeps for doing it..Hey, I saw others washing theirs!! Seems like I have a target on my back for breaking rules :-)

    1. I hate to give away a trade secret but the fact is, I used the 'Live' setting / filter on my Canon… It makes the blues a little bluer!

  3. Sure looks like a very nice campground, Randy and the price is right too. I love the idea of that 3 mile trail around the pond too.
