(DeFuniak Springs, FL) Hi 80 Lo 64 -- It was a great start to our trip this morning. It was cloudy so it was cooler for driving, but that didn’t last long. We weren't very far down the road when we hit RAIN, and a lot of it. It slowed traffic to a crawl.
We ran in and out of rain showers most of the day. We stopped for lunch at a rest stop just as another shower hit, so we ate inside the cramped rig (the slides were in) while it poured. It didn’t last long and we again were on our way. It was a long day for us; a little over 300 miles and a little under six hours. I’m still getting used to my new car, and I can't seem to get the seat adjusted right. I had a back ache and headache by the end of the trip. We arrived at Sunset King Lake Resort in DeFuniak Springs around 3pm (central time... yay!). It’s a Passport America park, and the discounted rate is $27 a night. That means the full price is $54 a night, which would be way out of our budget range.
The park is really nice! There’s all the amenities that you can ask for, and a full schedule of activities like we had at Adelaide Shores in Avon Park. We have a pull thru site with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer. I’ll get out tomorrow and take more pictures of the area, but here’s our site and what’s around us.
Out our back window.
Down our street. The pull thru sites alternate directions, so you look out on your neighbor's door side rather than their hoses and power cords.
There are a few park models.
This is the smaller of two clubhouses in the park.
Jim has always been good at picking out the parks. It looks like he’s doing just as well this year. We’re both really tired. People ask us why we don't like to go more than 200-250 miles in a day. If you think about it, I don't ride in the truck with him to share the driving. We're BOTH driving, so that's why we like to limit our travel days to 4-5 hours if we can. When we were younger we could drive alone for 10-12 hours easy, but not anymore at our age! :)
Jim is watching the Final Four basketball games, and I’m going through blogs to see who might be in the area. I remember people writing about things to do in this area, so I'll look up some of that information tomorrow. We'll stay in tomorrow (race day), but we plan on getting out and about on Monday.
