We've arrived in Summerdale, Alabama

Left Ocala on Wednesday around 5 p.m. Parts didn't arrive until 11:30 so by the time they got all the bushings installed and the alignment done, it was the end of the day. The guys did a great job though...we would certainly go back there again to get anything done on our rig.
We hit the road and got to Tallahassee around 8:15. Stopped at Pilot, got fuel, took the dogs for a walk, then grabbed a bite to eat with Linda's nephew, Bryan. They had a great time catching up over supper.

We left Tallahassee and drove a while longer before pulling into a rest stop for the night. Got up this morning and finished the second leg of the trip to the Escapee park here in Summerdale. Park was full so we started to set up in the dry camping area but then the manager came by and told us someone had just left so we could set up on site #7. It's a great site....a shade tree on each side of us. Huge sites....and beautiful singing birds in the trees just outside our door. We met up with our friends Bobbi and Jim and went out to get the lay of the land. There's a lot more around here than I had anticipated there would be. Just about any store you'd want within a short drive and all sorts of restaurants. Bobbi and Jim took us to the Shrimp Basket where we met up with Dennis and Colette (our other friends from Amazon)for a great shrimp dinner.

We had a great meal and a lot of laughs over dinner. Tomorrow Linda has a busy day. She needs to drive to Metarie, just outside of New Orleans, to get her Louisiana nursing license. Jim and Colette want to ride along to take in the sights. Should be an fun day.
