I woke this morning to the sound of rain on the roof. Intermittent light rain showers fell all morning. The afternoon was mostly cloudy with lots of threatening darker clouds on the horizon. As the day was transitioning to night a few breaks in the clouds started to appear. It was a humid day with a high temperature in the low eighties.
My first order of business this morning was another attempt at booking a campsite for the middle of next February. There were only two sites available today and neither were ideal, so I used it as a learning experience to see if there was a faster path to locking in a site. If I was successful it would be OK, but I didn’t care if I failed. So my failure was a success. I now know another path to clicking the right button that might work better tomorrow.
Gas prices continue to come down in this area. On Thursday when I departed St. Augustine the stations at one Interstate exit wanted $3.89 per gallon. The next exit north on Interstate 95 was twenty cents cheaper at $3.69. That seemed to be more of the norm for that area. When I got over to Interstate 75 in the middle of the state, the price of gas was down to $3.39 a gallon. Today, I drove north into Georgia where gas is typically a little cheaper. It was $3.32 per gallon in Georgia. All of these prices are a lot better than the $4.89 per gallon I had to pay in June.
Each morning I’ve been at this campground the park has pretty much emptied out each morning. When I’ve been here before there were always a few people that stayed a few nights, particularly over the weekend. That is not the case this time. I would guess that about fifteen RVs arrived on Friday night and departed this morning. Only one of the Friday arrivals was still here after the 11AM checkout. Starting around 2PM another fifteen to twenty RVs arrived.
