Back Roads

Are you planning on going thru Tally,St,Marks,Perry and those places?If so please be carefull if you drive thru at night.I have a friend who lives around the St,Marks area and he told me to drive from hwy75 to there and not hit I 10.I was doing the speed limit until I counted more than 100 + deer on the side of the road and that alone made me drive 30 to 35 mph even though the speed limit was a lot faster.It scared the crap out of me and worst of all...One of them was startled and started to run with me but luckily it went off into the woods.I am never going thru there again at night.I dont know how the daytime is but I would think they dont really hang out on the side of the road then.If you do go just be carefull.

It just cant get any better than that.

Cold Weather Airstreaming

Temperature has now dropped into the 50s here in Central FL, and is supposed to be in the low 20s or 30s by Thursday morning. We will be departing here and heading north to the Can Opener on Thursday morning.

2air, Devoman, and others up there already: What's the weather like and how are you coping?

Our Daisy isn't winterized. Is there anything that I should do before pulling up into the freezing temperatures?

Here at Santa Rosa Beach (where Tops'l is located), it is predicte to go down to 28 degrees tonight even at the coast. We live 3 miles from Tops'l, and I was just outside dripping the outside faucets on the house. It is supposed to get even cold tomorrow night. It should start warming up a little after that, though.

I was looking for the post on how to avoid the toll bridge, but alas

from 10:
Is it by taking 110 thru Pensacola to 98?
Is it by taking 281 to 98?

I may be a day early, in 166.
wed instead of Thurs, hope they can find a spot for me for the early day.

Advance scouting party, what do you think?

Three of us are leaving Pensacola about 9AM, need to stop at a few RV places along the way in the hope of finding a gas valve for the Attwood hot water heater.

We should be in there before 12.

Fie upon the weather, but I'm not winterized either... I've never run my furnace on the road, but I guess I'd better think about it, or at least stop every 3 hours or so and run it for 20 minutes. Coffee break time! I'm leaving at OH-DARK-THIRTY tomorrow morning, planning to arrive before 5pm on the 4th.

I'm coming south on I-95. Mapquest advises going all the way to eastern FL, then taking I-10 accross to Destin, but I'm considering cutting the corner at Savannah and catching 84 to 319 to I-10 in Talahassee. Aerial image looks to be mostly 4 lane and will save 50-60 miles. Input anyone?

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

No worries

no worries.I think you will be fine.It was really cold here last night so I just turned my furnace on and set it to 60 degrees and let it run all night.I just turned it off a while ago since it is a bit warmer now. 35 degrees.Now that is some cold weather for here.I probably wear a jacket not even 1 month out of the year.The rest is with shorts and a T-shirt.
It just cant get any better than that.

Still wish I was heading down - cause no matter how cold the weather gets - meeting new people is tops!!! and sharing a few "warming" drinks is mighty fine too...

Hope you all had a great New Years Eve and tink tink to you all for a great year of Travel and Adventure...

For those of you that don't know you can take Hwy 331 south from I-10 you avoid the toll road and when you hit Hwy 98 you go west about 4 miles and you are at Topsail.

we're at Tops, here from Ft. Lauderdale. We didn't know they made it so cold in Fl! Guess we needed to see if our furnace works - thank Goodness it does :-)

We came here early hoping to explore new beaches and lay of the land but too cold to do much. We've met two Streamers very nice and real helpful. Tops is pretty with wooded lots. No WiFi here which is bummer for us working folks.

Looking forward to meeting the rally folks. C'mon down - and bring some warm air with you, or at least hot toddies.

Looks like it will be warming up by the weekend, though. Highs around 60 and lows in the low-mid 50's. That's winter in the south for you!
