Travel to Hillsborough SP - Tuesday - January 10, 2012

We have had the greatest time at
Silver Springs State Park near Ocala, Florida. 

But it is time to head to our next adventure…
Hillsborough Park State Park just north of Tampa, Florida.

We stayed at Hillsborough SP last year
 so we would be close to the Florida RV Supershow. 

We liked our stay so much,
it was a no brainer to return this year!!

we had no idea when we made the reservations
that we would be in the market for
OUR  NEW  HOME :o))))

About 10am, we left Silver Springs
 headed south on Rt 301 to Rt 471 through the Green Swamp.

It was a quick and easy trip to Hillsborough SP.
We arrived just after noon.
01 - Arriving at Hillsborough State Park

As we pulled into Site 13,
we were greeted by our neighbor, Gin ;o))02 - Gin at her site and Wanda
Gin and Syl had arrived on Sunday.

We had no sooner got set up ... 
03 - Our Site

when Sherry and David pulled in next to us on Site 11.
04 - Monkey see Monkey do
I think Sherry is still on ‘Monkey’ overdose!!

Sherry wanted to show us just how much fuel it took
to fill up Winona.
05 - You spent how much on gas
Now that is one BIG receipt ;o))

After dinner,
we all gathered at Gin & Syl’s for a campfire.
It was so much fun to tell Howard and Linda Payne,
who really inspired our decision to go full-timing again,

Unfortunately, Nancy came without a camera. 
But rest assured there was lots of hollering and hugging!!!

This should be a fun few days 0f
RV Shopping
to keep us busy :o))

  3. That is one lonnnngggg receipt for sure. But just so you know, the error was the machine's. The gas bill was about the same as always! BIG but not THAT big. :-)
