Default Our First Snow Bird Experience

Hello everyone,

Yoly and I are leaving in 2 weeks in an attempt to avoid the freezing winter temperatures in north Georgia. We've booked a month at a very nice resort on the Gulf Coast and have a spot as close to the water as you can get there (still separated by a small Hwy). Here's a link to the resort ....

http://rvcoutdoors.com/carrabelle-beach/

We'll be there until February 15th and then be heading around the corner south into central Florida for a week or so at Lake Griffith State Park. If there are any Fun Finders out there looking for some moderate temperatures then we should see if we can cross paths. If anyone needs more details, let us know.

Neil & Yoly

I was going to head south in a few days (the last of my Holiday Guests just left this morning). Then STUPID CANCER reared its ugly head - I forgot I have an oncologist appointment on the 12th.

Hope to be on the road after that - maybe we will cross paths - look for a 189FDS with a goofy little white dog riding shotgun in a little red truck.

Safe travels.

Doesn't sound like you'll be hard to spot .... we'll keep an eye out for you

And if you see a cute girl with dark hair and a goofy looking companion with a "tail" also, that will probably be us

Hope your appointment on the 12th goes well. I was blessed in 2009 when I got to put mine behind me :P

Neil

Default UPDATE on Snowbird Experience

This is the introduction to the video series to follow that chronicles our first "snowbird" experience. There will be another dozen or so videos (already captured) from The Forgotten Coast of Florida and then this Sunday we are movng on to Manatee Springs State Park and then a week at Lake Griffith State Park, so there will be additional videos from those places as well



As always, watch in 1080p

Neil & Yoly

Still haven't seen another Fun Finder

Thankfully, we won't have to be back until the end of the month Even then I'm afraid I'll have to re-winterize.

We have looked at the Carrabelle resort and plan to spend some time down there soon. Still have work travel getting in the way though. I can work from anywhere, but they occasionally want me to make a personal appearance for a customer. I keep telling myself "just a few more years"!
