Ice storm overnite in Virginia caused me to start late, 10 am,.,,,,drove through the rest of Virginia and tennessee, camping tonite at KOA Lookout Mountain, Trenton GA, at the juncture of Tenn., Ga, and Alabama.......400 miles to Henderson State Park in Destin, FL, on the coast, panhandle ! Might do it all tomorrow, unless I stop at the casino in Montgomery, haha..
Getting about 15-16mpg with my tacoma pulling my a122, usually get 20mpg, not too bad !

Here are a few pics I took as the sun was goin down at the KOA.

Looking good. It sounds like you're having a great time! If you have a smart phone or iPad we used two great apps to track mileage and expenses last summer on our Iowa to Alaska trip--Road Trip HD kept track of all our truck costs and gave us our average mileage. We were pleased to average 15 mph with our older Silverado. fxBudget helped us keep track of every penny we spent on our 10-week adventure. We knew we couldn't overspend our budget and it kept us on track. It even handled the exchange rate.

Enjoy! Just a few months and we'll all be on the road. Was walking in one of our pretty state parks this weekend and it got me thinking we ought to be out there.

Hey guys, arrived yesterday at Henderson State Park, Destin , Fl. in the panhandle yesterday. It was 75 when i arrived ! Incredible park/campground, one of the nicest I have ever seen, gorgeous beach too. Big storm went through today, huge waves and wind......the camper was nice and cozy though! I am here til saturday. Supposed to drop to 31 tomorrow nite though, do I need to drain all water? Oh here are some pics.
