May 8, 2016 – Sarasota to Jacksonville

Today’s drive north along I-75, east on I-10 and north again on I-295 and I-95 was remarkable by its lack of any interesting landscape  other than being twice passed by couples just starting out their lives together.

''Just Married'' (2), I-75, North Central FL - 2016-05-08Tonight, we’re again staying at Pecan Park RV Resort in Jacksonville, FL.  It’s a convenient stopover location when entering or leaving Florida … with the added benefit of having a large flea market

As with so many other days on the road, one of my first, least favorite but necessary jobs is the removal of the frequently scores of insects who decided to commit hari-kari by flying into the windshield and front panel of our motorhome (YUK!)
