LTRVD Episode 34 – Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Welcome to another edition of the podcast.

Thank you!

First of all, I am very thankful for my health, for the support of my family, for you who make it possible for me to make a living doing what I love, and for living in this great country where everything is possible.

This year I decided to change it up and make a traditional cuban dinner. It consists of roast pork, rice and black beans, cassava, and flan. For wine I went with the French Beaujolais Nouveau wine.

The trip out west

I’m thinking of making a beeline for Quatzsite after the Tampa RV Supershow and catch the tail end if the Quartzite rally. From there I intend to visit Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff, and then east to Albuquerque, into Texas, on the way back to Florida. My mom might join me for part of this trip.

Utah’s All-American Road

I came across this article on Trailer life magazine bout Utah Scenic Byway 12, which goes from just west of Bryce Canyon into Capital Reef State Park. Of course when I was there I didn’t know about it so I took an alternate route, so now I must return.

I also talk about another article about the 150th anniversary of the birth of Laura Ingalls Wider, author of the Little House on the Prairie book series. The article talks about a road trip to all the sites mentioned in the novels.

Unfortunately I believe you have to be a subscriber to read the articles, so it wouldn’t let me share it.

Dry Tortugas National Park (video)

Last weekend we returned to the Florida Keys in order to visit the Dry Tortugas National Park. This has been a bucket list destination of ours for a while now. The Yankee Freedom ferry has been having a special price since they returned to operation after hurricane Irma of only $99. That includes entrance to the park, breakfast and lunch.

Key West

We made our usual three-and-a-half hour drive to the “Conch Republic”, and we were surprised to see how much rubble is still on the side of the road, particularly in the Lower Keys. Key West, however, is 99% back to normal. We did the usual: a little bit of eating, a little bit of partying. We also visited Fort Zachary Taylor, which we had not seen before, and the freshly repainted Southernmost Point. We stayed at Boyd’s Campground, located in Stock Island, just one mile from Key West, five miles from Duval Street.

Southernmost Point
Fort Jefferson

Fort Jefferson is the main thing to see in the Dry Tortugas. I also attempted to do some snorkeling but the weather conditions were not optimal. It is a beautiful archipelago, and the color of the water is unbelievable.

I made two versions of the video:

The long one which also documents the trip to Key West and out stay there

…and a short one just with the Dry Tortugas trip

This weeks video is about the beginning of our fall road trip, which happened in Central Florida.

Thunderstorm in Central Florida
Central Florida

The first leg of the trip is driving to the Orlando area, more specifically Lake Louisa State Park. I had heard about this park through John and Kathy Huggins podcast some years back. While I was there, I met up with a viewer and producer Eric O., visited the President’s Hall of Fame, the Citrus Tower, Sugarloaf Mountain, Howey-in-the-Hills, the Dade Battlefield and Dade City among other places.
