From Florida to Montana - Spring of 2022

 We got a late start from Florida to Montana this year.  Our departure from John Prince Campground was early March, from there we went to Orlando for two weeks.  Thought it would be nice to get settled back into our home on wheels and my new work schedule.  We stayed at the Orlando Thousand Trails.  This campground is huge and the accommodations were nice, but the hot tub was lukewarm, definitely not Hot.  Mike and I did a lot of walking around the park and we ventured to Orlando to do iFly (indoor skydiving) for an early birthday celebration for me.

From Orlando we went to Crestview FL for a week to visit cousin Ryan and his family.  As always we had a wonderful time visiting with family.  My work schedule worked well with the boys school schedule since Crestview is in the Central time zone and I work Eastern.

From Crestview Florida we tracked to Mississippi and the Lord blessed us with safety from tornadoes that were near us.  We did get prepared because what they were predicting was going to be windy and rainy.  As we waited in anticipation, it turned out to be north of us and east of us… Thank you Jesus.

From Mississippi we journeyed to Texas and boy is Texas windy in the springtime.  We stayed outside of Dallas for two weeks and every day was windy and hot.  I like Texas but only in the early spring (February NOT March) and late fall, like November.  We stopped in Amarillo Texas for a week and were blessed that our paths crossed with our RV friends, Rob and Marie, so we went to the Big Texan Steakhouse to eat and catch-up with each other.  While in Amarillo we experienced a dust storm, witnessed a huge dust devil and went to the Cadillac Ranch.  Did I mention Texas is windy!

On our way to Page Arizona we stopped at Red Rock Campground outside of Gallup NM.  We stayed at Lone Rock Beach Campground outside of Page Arizona for a week before making our way to Montana for the summer.  The water of Lake Powell is so low that there is no water around Lone Rock. You can walk to Lone Rock.

We learned that when we head west from Florida we have to do that in early February to miss the tornadic spring storms, the wind and the heat.

Mike, Abby and I made it safely to Montana where we will be all summer.  Safe travels and God bless.
