I actually had a much better sleep than I was expecting! I was up at 7:00 and after turning the coffee on, I headed immediately over for a shower. We wanted to get going as early as possible this morning so there would be no time for my usual relaxing cup of coffee this morning.
It was very humid out...and cloudy. We ran into a bit of rain along the way and as we set up camp, it drizzled on and off...but it was very warm out!! After getting all set up, I walked back up to the office to let her know which site we had chosen and pay for 2 nights. It is likely we will stay longer but we wanted to keep our options open and take a look at the other campground tomorrow to see if we would move to it.
When I got back, we sat outside with a cold beer before deciding to set up the satellite dish and see if we could find a signal. I had found the coordinates on a website called “DishFinder” and Steve set out to see if he could find a spot through the trees. After getting it all set up, I sat inside reading out the signal strength to Steve (via our two-way radios) while he moved the dish. To our surprise, he really didn’t have too much trouble find a satellite and a fairly strong signal...YAY!! We really think that the reason we had such a hard time in Waycross was because ShawDirect had turned off our signal. But we were up and running now...all was good!
After securing the tripod down, Steve went over to talk to a camper across the way. We had noticed he had an ATV with him and Steve wanted to talk to him about the trails. While he was gone, I tried and tried to get an internet connection on the laptop but had no success. Occasionally, I’d get a weak signal, but it was too weak to actually connect to the internet....BOO, HISS! Oh well, I believe there is Wifi up at the office...for a price. Guess I will just have to use it while we are here.
Once Steve returned, we decided to sit outside under the awning (out of the rain) and toast our new destination...we are now in Florida!! Wow, I really have a hard time believing it sometimes! What a blast!
