Thursday – November 12, 2015
We enjoyed a restful night at the Gunter Hill campground near Montgomery, Alabama. The weather here is overcast, cool and damp with the temperature in the fifties. We are looking forward to reaching warmer weather. Our next stop will be an area close to Kissimmee, Florida.
About fifty miles north of Interstate10 we were rewarded with clear, sunny skies. A welcome relief from the dreary, cool weather we left behind in Montgomery, Alabama.
During our travel east on Interstate 10 we decided we would spend the night in one of the Florida rest areas on Interstate 75, south of Interstate 10. Florida rest areas have nighttime security and in our experience offer a safe place to spend the night. Some of the rest areas offer separate parking for RV’s. After consulting our Rest Area Guide, we settled on one near Ocala, Florida. We will spend the night at that rest area.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
