Saturday April 23rd 2022
Today was a travel day. My week at Lake Louisa State Park was up. It would have been nice to stay longer, but additional days were not available when I booked. Since I want to stay in the central Florida area for another couple of weeks, I only moved about 20 miles south to the KOA in Davenport.
I did a good job of dragging my feet getting ready to travel today. I managed to depart my site five minutes before the 1PM checkout time. The drive south on US 27 was uneventful. Traffic was heavy and I wasn’t in a hurry so I traveled slowly in the right lane all the way. It is a good thing I didn’t have a long travel day. The wind out of the east was broadside to my direction of travel. It often required two hands on the wheel. I arrived at the Orlando Southwest KOA between 1:30PM and 2PM. I’ll be here for two nights.
I have used this park for similar purposes in the past. It is good for a few nights stay between other longer stays. The sites are close together and not huge, but it is a good location, generally clean and well managed. Last April was my last visit after spending two weeks at Lake Louisa State Park. I was here for more than a week while I waited for my second COVID shot time slot. The campground is a lot more popular this year. The front of the campground where I’m staying is almost full tonight. Last year I kept wondering where everyone was.
The weather pattern is starting to change. The humidity is increasing and the chance of rain is too. I don’t plan on doing much tomorrow other than convincing myself that it is a Sunday. This is my last confusing and unusual Saturday travel day during this stretch. I’ve been thinking it was Sunday all day today.
