|We have been packing up the trailer for two days and we are still not done. Since the trailer is parked on the American side of the border we have to cross over there with every load. Both days have been very cold, though the sunshine helped to make temps livable. Inner parts of Maine have had –29C which really is extremely cold.|
Thursday will be the day we hit the road. Once we are on I-95 South we will follow it even through New York City. By-passing the Big Apple is not recommended this time of the year as we would have to get into higher elevation and farther from the coast, which could result in worse road conditions. Next big struggle will be passing Philadelphia,PA, then Baltimore,MD and Washington DC. After that we will have a clear go until Richmond VA, which shouldn’t be too bad. We calculate 4 days to reach Freeport,FL where we will stay with a “Boondockers Welcome” couple, Sherry and Pete. We wrote about their visit with us this summer and you can read about it here.
Northern Florida is certainly not the warmest spot in the continental USA, but it sure beats sitting out one snow storm after the other. Yeah, Sunday we are supposed to get 18 inches on top of what we already have. It seems to be a crazy winter. Even tonight it’s supposed to start snowing again, hopefully not more than 4 inches.
Our boondocking spot will be right on the water and I just hope they have no gators hanging around the area. Later, we might take a trip farther south into the St.Petersburg area but that’s not set in stone yet. We will be close to the Alabama area and might be doing some exploring into the State. With so many new things to see, I think that our time (3-4months) will be flying by very fast.
Anyway, if you keep reading the blog you will find out.
Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
