We left Pelican Roost, Mayport, Florida, this morning at 9 am and headed east along Atlantic Avenue to Hwy 9A. Hwy 9A is wonderful and takes you directly to I-95 South without stoplights and very little traffic. The roadways and getting around Jacksonville was much easier then it was 26 years ago when Russ was stationed on the Samuel Eliot Morrison, FFG-13.
We drove south on I-95 to north of Daytona, then west on I-4 to Disney World and north west on Hwy-192 to Hwy 27. Once on Hwy 27 the Thousand Trails park is only 2 miles north. We found us a nice spot with full hookups including 50 amp service. Sunday night the park provided a hayride around the park. The only problem was that there was no hay on the wagon but we did have a good time anyway. We will be here until November 9 when we will go up to Bushnell, Fl. with a SMART Group (Buccaneers).
