Travel to North of Jacksonville

Wednesday April 17th 2019

Today was a travel day. Conditions were about a 7 on my scale of conditions suitable for travel. A perfect travel day is cloudy, so there isn’t any glare, and the wind isn’t blowing to cause RV handling issues. Today was partly cloudy with a light wind. The temperature peaked around eighty.

Blossom of the day.

I got on the road at 10:30AM with a little more than a quarter tank of gas. I’d scouted out a gas station with easy access on my way north. When I got there I found the gas price to be twenty to thirty cents more than other stations in the area. I chose to continue on despite my preference to fill up before it gets into the last quarter of the tank. When I finally bought gas in the St. Augustine area at a station I’ve stopped at before, I paid forty cents a gallon less than I would have at the place I skipped. Even at that price, I only put in one credit card pass of $75. The price of gas at my destination just over the state line in Georgia is usually cheaper. It turned out to be five cents cheaper. Of course it may be higher by the time I fill the tank next week on my way out.

Site O-4 at the Jacksonville North/St. Marys KOA.

I’m back at the KOA in St. Mary’s Georgia just over the state line from Florida. Once again this campground is my holiday weekend safety net. Finding an available campsite for the Easter weekend was difficult. I probably could have stayed longer at the Seasons in the Sun RV Resort, but I’d already extended for one week and I was getting hitch itch to move on. This park has some road noise from nearby Interstate 95, but overall it’s a nice place to stay. I’ll be here until next Wednesday.

Shortly after I arrived the tree overhead gave me a present.
