4 weeks Dang, I'm so jealous. It's cooled off down here on the south, no longer in the 100's. Hope you have a good time

I see you have Jacksonville, FL. on your list.

Bob, I see you have Jacksonville,FL on your list. If you are retired military, there is a very nice RV park on the Mayport Naval Station by the name of "Pelican Roost" RV park 904-270-7808. It is right on the St Johns River at the Atlantic Ocean. When you come down from Charleston on I-95, take the first exit after the Jacksonville Int Airport exit. Take the 9-A East , with the directions to Mayport Naval Station. If not retired military, right next to the Navy Station is "Hanna Park Campground" at 500 Wonderwood DR , Atlantic Beach, FL 904-249-4700.
It is right next to the Mayport Naval Station on the Atlantic Ocean. use the same directions as Pelican Roost, Mayport NAVSTA.

I just returned from a 6008 mile trip,I am retired Navy also.

Enjoy your trip

Daisy.....As a matter of fact we have reservations at Pelican Park for 3 days starting on the 10th. We stayed in Little Rock AFB FamCamp Thursday night....Also a very neat campground for us OLE retiret military folks.
Just for the record.....Scott AFB, near Belleville, IL, Tinker AFB. in Oklahoma City and Memphis Naval Air Station are all worth a stop if you are in those areas.
Thanks for the good words about Mayport. We are looking forward to getting there.

4 Week Adventure update

WELL...Day 3 and we finally have internet...AND cable TV. We feel like we have been in the deep woods for 2 nights.
Total 810 miles so far. We are at an ESCAPEE campground just north of Knoxville, TN. Going to spend 3 nights here seeing the sights and cooling our heals before we head out Tuesday for Charlotte, NC.
The F350 is rocking along at 62 to 64 mph, running in TOW/HAUL all the way in 6th gear at right at 1600 RPM. All of the hills just west of Knoxville were not an issue. The truck never down shifted AT ALL...and maintained 62/64 mph on speed control.
Pictures of the rig at the first Arkansas visiter center. Little Rock AFB FamCamp, and Jackson, TN campground last night.
Got to meet a nephew in Nashville for lunch today. That was a bonus.....Great visit and lunch at Cracker Barrel........BTW.....Sure wish there was a way to know if and when Cracker Barrel had parking for RV's. The Nashville, TN one at Exit 210 DOES NOT have RV parking...and it was touch and go getting around the store and we parked in the entrance, next to the street. It all worked...but was a challange.

You mentioned Huntsville, AL. Redstone Arsenal has two campgrounds (one by the river without sewer, one near the PX with full hookups including wi-fi).

Thank you sir. We have not nailed down the homeward legs yet. Depends how much time and money are left when we get that far.

We do appreciate the heads up.

Cold??

Night 1 in Knoxville.....Wake up at 5:00 AM...notice the pillow is cold...lay there thinking the furnace will kick on just any minute.......but it does not start. Then start thinking maybe the propane tank is empty.
Dang did not realize 43 degrees was SOOOOO cold outside.
Got tanks switched over,,,furnace restarted.....All is good.
Think I'll be looking for an automatic propane switch over device. Thinking our trailer from years ago had one. It will be worth its weight in gold.
