Day 46: Visit with Michael Valentine
Sunday, May 19: What a restless night's sleep. The outdoor temperature had cooled off nicely last night so we opened up the windows hoping it would cool us off inside. Nope. It was hot and muggy and noisy. Between the airplane take-offs and freeway noise, it was rough. We should have just given in and... Continue Reading →
Day 45: Welcome to Florida!
Last night we kept the A/C running, pulled all the heavy blankets and my sleeping bag off the bed, and put a fan in the room. We did all that and it was still uncomfortably warm in the RV, until about 3 am, then it was comfy. We were both a little restless for the... Continue Reading →
