Trip #2 - 2009

butterfly bullet The two RV Gypsies wintered at Markham Park in Broward County, Florida and took care of family business. This was a sad time for them so they did not do much, but Karen entered and won a green contest.

butterfly bullet11. The detective told the two RV Gypsies to start traveling again because it will be years before the trial in Orlando, so they left Markham Park on March 29, 2009 - destination: ALASKA for the summer, with short stops along the way. They arrived at Lee's Country Campground in White Springs, Florida on March 31, 2009 and left White Springs on April 2, 2009. Photos can be found by choosing #11 on the above map.
butterfly bullet12. Another short stop on the way to Alaska -- April 2-4, 2009 Styx River Campground in Robertsdale, Alabama. It rained heavily all the way there and it was a scary drive at times. The driving area and most of Alabama was under tornado watch the entire drive the two RV Gypsies were there. The park has an indoor pool and hot tub, but they were closed - what a disappointment. Also in this section, there are photos driving through Mobile, Alabama and a visit to Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore, Alabama, plus a cruise on The Southern Bell River Cruiser and the Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Alabama and more. Check out #12 on the above map for photos.
butterfly bullet13. Another short stop on the way to Alaska -- April 4-6, 2009 Lakeside RV Park in Livingston, Louisiana where the two RV Gypsies met Midnight and Snowflake. Then they continued on to the International Festival in Baton Rouge and a brief tour of Louisiana's Old State Capitol building, the Baton Rouge River Center and the USS KIDD. Check out #13 on the map above.
butterfly bullet14. Another short stop on the way to Alaska -- April 6-8, 2009 Turtle Bayou RV Park in Wallisville, Texas. Since MOB broke down in Louisiana, time here was mostly spent getting MOB fixed. But the two RV Gypsies met Elvin Hayes who is in the Basketball Hall of Fame. Check out #14 on the map above. (Note: MOB stands for My Orange Baby, the orange HHR tow car of the two RV Gypsies. A tow car is often referred to by RVers as a toad.)
butterfly bullet15. Another short stop on the way to Alaska -- April 8-10, 2009 - Admiralty RV Resort in San Antonio, Texas. There is so much history here, including, of course, the Alamo, the City of San Antonio, Japanese Gardens and Mission San Jose. The two RV Gypsies met new RV friends here. Check out #15 on the above map for photos. 
butterfly bullet16. Another short stop on the way to Alaska -- April 10-12, 2009 Circle Bar RV Park in Ozona, Texas, listed as "the biggest small city in America." The local attraction here is the Davie Crockett Statue and museum - a hero at the Battle of the Alamo.

Check out #16 on the above map.
