The Journey to Florida, day 7! ~ By Tom ~
Hello everyone. December 23rd, Friday and day 7 of our journey. We finally arrived in Tallahassee, capital of Florida and our original destination. It is the 126th-largest city in the US with a population of 375,751 and is the main center for trade and agriculture in the Florida Big Bend and Southwest Georgia regions. Temperatures were in the mid 70’s when we arrived and averaged that by day and mid 50’s at night. It is an exciting day for us because we will be spending time with Audrey’s parents! We were up by 6 a.m. and off to find a cup of coffee and some breakfast before heading over to Audrey’s Dad and Moms.
From here it was off to find a campground that we could call home while visiting with Dad and Mom. Thanks to our RV Parks app we found the Tallahassee RV Park. This place was great and the folks running it as friendly as you could ever meet. The place was full but they offered us a small site that fit our class b motorhome perfectly. The campground was clean and we felt safe and cared about and it don’t get much better than that now does it, lol. We weren’t there 30 minutes and we jumped in the showers and it was off to fellowship with Audrey’s Dad and Mom.
Audrey’s Dad and Mom were so happy to see us and it was priceless seeing the joy in Audrey. It wasn’t long before Audrey’s parents were insisting we park our motorhome in their driveway. So we went back to the Tallahassee RV Park and asked if it would be possible to cancel our reservation. After we told them about Audrey’s parents wanting us to be there the owner without hesitating said “you need to be with your parents”. Wow, this was incredible how thoughtful they were to allow us to change our reservation. You can bet this will be a place we’ll recommend to others needing a place to stay while visiting Tallahassee. From here it was back to Audrey’s parents to talk the night away. That evening on our way out to our van we noticed a slight propane gas smell coming from the back of the van. In checking it out we discovered a slight leak in the propane regulator. So we just turned off the tank and used the electric power to maintain our refrigerator and heat pump. What a blessing to have it happen in the warmth of FL though rather than earlier in our trip in the northern states where the temps were in the 20’s and would have frozen our butts of without the propane to fuel the furnace.
