Unfortunately, Mapquest says it's a good three hour drive each way from St. George Island to Marianna.

airstream dreaming

we are heading south ASAP after the holidays, hopefully before new years. We think we will drive to Savannah for one night (I grew up there) and to Jacksonville for the second night and then maybe three nights in St Augustine.
.
Looking at this forum it appears quite a few of airstream.com folks are heading that way as well. Being winter do we need to make reservations at Campgrounds in Florida (state and private)??

This will be our first major trip in the excella -- we are looking forward to it.

Reservations are a good idea at this time of year. many snow birds are making the trek down for the remained of the winter so the campgrounds will be full unless you plan on pulling in quite early. Additionally with the Xmas break many family's head out and do Christmas vacations so that adds to the numbers that are all trying to get that campground spot. When we made our reservations at the state park there were about 10 sites left for the period around New Years.

The Motorhome is off the landing pad and on the drive for the pre-trip prep. Are we going to be going solo? Or will I have a welcoming committee when we arrive?

All I have left to do is load the beer and wine, and check air and fluids. Drop me a PM or add a post so I know whether to worry about someone who is a late arrival

St. George

St. George is nice. Site 29! It's the only pull through. Some sites are sandy. Bring good shoes as the beach is a 1/4 mile walk. Nice beach but we prefer Henderson Beach State Park. Nicer beach and sites. St. George is great though!

Florida Caverns is not really near anything. Falling Waters State Park is a short drive to see a big hole in the ground the water falls into.

Say 'Hi' and 'Fred misses ya' to Tallahassee for me as you drive by! I've moved there three times and moved away three times. To quote Gov. Arnold.....'I'll be back'.

Oh, I just remembered Torreya State Park which is in the area (hour west of Tally). It is the start of the Appalachian mountains and they have a hiking trail that has some nice views and cliffs (for Florida) with a historical house at the end of the trail.

I've never been there (no pets) but I always wanted to. For some odd reason, 15 years in Tallahassee and I never went there.

Weeeellllllll we may not be there (Fla caverns that is)

No bad news, just that I have an invite to a rally and may be going there instead. So if you were thinking about going, or planning on stopping in to see us, don't be surprised if we are not there

Happy New Year to everyone!
