Continuing Toward Tampa!!

On Monday morning, we left the Wal-Mart parking lot about 9:00am, and drove to Ocala, FL.  It was about 400 miles and was chosen as our destination because  some friends of Mark and Sue, who used to work with them at the Adventure Land Amusement Park in Des Moines,Iowa, were staying there for a while. 

We decided to stay at the Silver Springs State Park for the night.  We got there about 4:30pm, got set up, and headed out to an Outback Restaurant for dinner with their friends .  We had a nice meal and a nice visit, and then headed back to the park, and crashed for the night.  We did not get any pictures!!

Ocala is only 90 miles from Tampa, and we made the short drive to the Hillsborough River State Park near Tampa on Tuesday.  We had made reservations for Tuesday night in preparation for moving to the Fairgrounds for the RV show for the next four nights………. with 30amp electrical hook-ups but no water or sewer. 

On Wednesday morning, we will fill up with water, and empty our waste tanks before driving over to the Fairgrounds.  Today, we did some wash while we had the water and sewer!!

Later today, we drove over to the fairgrounds to check out the route and facilities for tomorrow morning, and took the time to visit the local Camping World store and the Lazy Days RV Sales location.  The latter still has a lot of overhead, even after their recent Chapter 11 reorganization!!

Sorry……… two state parks, and no pictures.  I will try to do better!
