    Leaving Maine on the 4th for 7 weeks down South in our Aliner. My wife , I and our Lab Odin will be spending 7 weeks in 7 different state parks in Florida and Georgia. Looking forward to some hiking without worrying about slipping on ice.

    Welcome to the South. Get your fill of grits while you're here. Look for an Eggs Up Grill or Lizard's Thicket for breakfast.

    We’re in Lake Manatee right now and were told by the host that all Florida State Parks would be closing on Friday the 20th. We’ll try for a spot in Ocala National Forest for Friday and Saturday nights. Found a space in Crooked River state park in Georgia for 7 nights and Huntington Beach state park in South Carolina for 7 more nights. Trying to make the best of a bad situation but looks like our trip will be cut short by several weeks. 90 degrees here right now.

    Salt Springs is currently still open in Ocala national forest. SESQUICENTENNIAL STATE PARK is still open in central South Carolina and great for hiking and biking.

    We’re in Crooked River State Park in Georgia right now until Sunday the 29th. Beautiful park but the midges are brutal! Still, we’re having a good time being on the road. Off to Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina on Sunday. Just received word that the S C parks are not accepting any new reservations but will honor existing ones, phew. We’ll be there until April 4th and then heading back to Maine. Already made my first reservation for next year in Florida, Rainbow Springs late February.

    Well our luck has run out. Just received a call from South Carolina saying that their parks are closed for camping. We begin the long drive back to Maine tomorrow. There are certainly people with far greater problems than ours at this time, no complaints here.

    Just be careful, NJ closed state campground untill april 30th, and most private campgrounds were told to close untill may 15th or something like that.

    You’re right about that. We’ll spend tomorrow night in a LaQuinta in Edgewood Md, then home. The KOA we’re at in Lumberton has closed their restrooms. Cassette toilet for tonight.
