We had this great plan…go to Florida for January. We knew that was the plan about a year ago. We knew we could start booking spots right away before they all got booked up. We didn’t. When we told people in August, September, October, and even November that we were going to Florida for January with no reservations yet….well, they laughed at us. “Newbies!”

We went to Florida for January. And we rocked it!

Nine nights at Fort Wilderness for Disney…done!

Two days before we were leaving I snagged a space at Fort De Soto State Park just outside of St. Petersburg. Everybody we met there said it’s their favorite SP (State Park for you S&B folks….oh, and S&B is “Sticks & Bricks”) and they couldn’t believe we found a last minute reservation. Yeah, we rock.

While we were there we got a call from friends who said “meet us in the Keys this weekend….oh, an find someplace with two spaces, one for us too!”. Last minute, in the Keys, in January? Yeah, rocked that one too at Venture Out RV Resort…score!

Banged out a few nights nextdoor to #ZooMiami at the Larry & Penny Thompson Park…last minute (in the overflow lot with no hookups). We had a blast there, even met some great folks with a six week old baby…born in their Airstream {insert #WTF emjoi here}!

Headed from there over to Sanibel/Captiva Islands on a last minute Fort Myers/Pine Island KOA reservation. Oh the sea shells…holy moly! Memories went down on those beaches.

Rolled back across Florida on a random last minute find for a City of Jacksonville park called Hanna Park…with FHUs (full-hookups)…right on Atlantic Beach…only beach for miles that allows dogs. In the RVing pet-lover world, that’s pretty much like a hat trick!

And that was Florida. We came. We beached. We conch-ered. (See what I did there? Like conch shell? Another emoji here please.) And we headed off to Georgia.

But when you have a six night gap in your schedule this close to Florida beaches and find an opening right on the water (I mean practically pull your front tires into high-tide), you turn around and head south to Florida folks! Just when we thought we were done, weeeeeee’rrrrreeee baaaaaaccckkkk!
