As we we work our way to the that first maiden rally ,we will be exploring and posting travel to places near and far and telling you some of the things we chose to do and post some tidbits along the way.We were late getting our FMCA commercial application in and unable to secure a booth at Peachy in Perry Georgia, however that didn't stop us from attending .We started out with a trip south to Miami where we secured a few days at Larry and Penny Thompson regional park. The plan when we left was to stop at Patrick afb and stay the night being halfway to Miami. Unfortunately when we called at 8:00 am when we left in the morning there were plenty of spaces yet when we arrived 2 hours later there was a line 5 deep at the check in. By the time we got thru the 5 before us there were none left and told to hold till after lunch at chevron park . with in minutes of 1:00 lunch finish the check in person whom said he would call about the one possibly available , told us he had inadvertently given it to someone else and that the person who was now coming would be upset when he arrived and would find out his space was indeed rented to someone and would now be without also. Well we decided to move on and make the entire drive to Miami. We called our next stop to see if they could squeeze us in a night early, no problem but would need to move to our regular space in the early am. Early The next day we moved to a very nice space at the very end of the park. We called Traveling Robertwww.travelingrobert.com/to meet us later in the day to go over the events to transpire in San Antonio . We set about to display our banner and wears around our campsite, Robert Showed up and decided to interview us and while we had planned the whole thing we had not so much rehearsed it even one time. Teana started and I sort of just improvised the whole thing and while it was ok it could have been at least somewhat better if I had just stayed silent but ole well done now.We kicked about on the bikes and went to buy supplies and spread our cards and brochures in the club house and spoke to a few campers who seemed interested but not enough to pursue..One of the single bad things I found about Miami enough to avoid it altogether was the fact that you absolutely can not travel anywhere to get across town to a restaurant or shop with out getting on the turn pike . I find this to be ransom to the people who live there to pay the state for ordinary use of the cities and burden and a tax on the economy. not to mention a unnecessary added expense to locals but especially a bad thing to the tourist industry, making it completely unable to access local attractions and events costly and they are toll by plate and usually don't show up in your mail box till 6-7 months after your trip has finished . While they do make the transponder for the tolls available and they try to tell you that it saves you money buying these silly little stickers which you have to go online and activate with your credit card to put money on and guess what unless you buy the expensive transponder you still get the tolls because THEY DON'T WORK as i have found out previously and don't try to fight it , they have your photo.After making our way back north on our way to our next destination we stopped back in Ormond to stay the night and make a fresh start to Perry Georgia. We arrived at our next campground just across from the fairground. Fair harbor RV park, what beautiful campground and helpful personnel. A very helpful note those interested this park has horse camping, additionally this campground is very accommodating to those wishing to hold rallies , the amenities were beautifully kept. The park was full due to the fact the FMCA Peachy in Perry rally was being held right across the street and we did in fact walk to the Perry fairgrounds. The campground offers Breakfast free on the weekend what a treat. Even though we were unable to secure a booth at the rally we were encouraged to be proactive with all in attendance and were asked to leave as much information on tables near the registration tables as we bought with us .I totally enjoyed my time at the rally and met many many new business who encouraged us to bring our rallies and tours to the businesses and campgrounds that had booths from all over the United States. We finished our business in Perry and said our goodbye to fair harbor campground and made a note to return. Our next stop took us even further north to a campground by the name of Atlanta south where we would rent a car to drive into Atlanta and celebrate Teana’s birthday. Our plan was to see the World of Coke and the Atlanta aquarium and end our day with a walk around Olympic park. What a treat I got when the hosts around the world of coke whom are full of additional information about Atlanta and the past Olympics. Coke is the sponsor of the torch of all the Olympics and was able to proudly hold 2 of the torches from 2 different Olympic games, wow what a feeling to hold history in your hands, so much on display, so much to see. THANK YOU to the great city of Atlanta for being a beacon of history for the world. Our last day in Atlanta would take us to Stone mountain, although I had been here yrs ago I was never able to witness up close the stone sculpture as magnificent as I did at stone moutain. Much of it was still closed due to some movie filming I was able to see a lot of what people come to see and history again in all its glory. This was the very first covered bridge I’ve ever witnessed and this one was beautifully restored. It’s a beautiful thing to see the entire park used by so many locals as a back drop to stay healthy and run around the mountain and even to the top .It appears that about 200-300 people gather here every day at some point to walk or run and use the trails provided by the park free of charge to the public ,free from auto traffic with fresh air and views to run and walk and enjoy. We ended our time in Atlanta having dinner with Jimmy Marchman who is a GMC owner and a good friend, We packed up our campsite and secured our coach for travel, returned our rental car, gassed up the coach and headed for our last stop which was a GMC owners rally . We unfortunately caught a bug and got sick and were only able to venture out a few hours to have dinner and greet longtime friends at the GMC owners rally ,Treasures in Tallahassee, where 125 coaches were registered and on display. So many people I wanted to say hello and visit with but in the interest of safety Teana and I stayed inside trying to fight off a cough and cold, Many activities took place but we weren't able to stay and felt te need to travel home and recover and get better for a wedding in the near future.
