2017 trip to somewhere The start

                                                                                      2017 RV Trip to ??

     We are off on our 2017 trip. We are heading west and then north. The weather is dictating some of our route. We left home on the 14th of May, about 2 months later them we wanted. But now we have the doctors ok so we are off. We hope to be on the road for about 5 to 6 months.  

     I hope to do a better job of blogging this trip. We never did finish up last year’s trip blog; we named our trip west. Part of the problem was we covered so many wonderful places, hikes, and tours etc. that when we came back to the RV we were pooped. Another problem was my side kick, shutter-bug Linda took 11,060 pictures. You are reading correctly that’s eleven thousand. We are still sorting thru all those photos. Sure am thankful for digital photos.   

     Our first stop Was Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park in Crystal River Florida. A super park more on this RV Park later. The RV Park was 125 miles from our home. We do have a new traveling companion by the name of Hannah. She is our rescued puppy from the month of October . She is about a year old now and she comes in a large size. She is wonderful traveling and no problem when she is with us. She does have a very serious problem of separation anxiety. Slowly we hope we can get her to the point where we can leave her in the RV without barking, or having any other problem. We had the same problem at our home but we got her over that. Now it’s training all over again. So far we made a little progress. Did I mention she is a wonderful loving dog?

      Consequently we didn’t check out some of the local restaurants.  We did do a little driving tour of the area. Crystal River is on the Gulf coast. We went to Fort Island beach. It is a very nice small beach. There is a long pier for fishing or just watching sunsets.  We also toured Encore Crystal River RV Resort. We then drove the Withlacoochee Bay Trail. It was little rough sand and gravel road. We turned around after a couple of miles. They do have one of the longest paved walking trials in Florida. We then toured Yankeetown. It is very small old Florida Town with a population of about 500. We drove on the “Follow That Dream Parkway”. Parts of the area were filmed in the 1960 movie of the same name featuring Elvis. We also drove many or the side streets of the town. Then it was back to the RV. We didn’t plan to much as our goal is to get Hannah use to the RV.
