Tallahassee to Bushnell

Our site at Blueberry Hill RV Resort

It was only 32F but sunny when I got up this morning. We got on the road by 9:05 a.m. and decided not to drive so far today so I made a reservation at Blueberry Hill RV Park in Bushnell, FL. We arrived there around 1:00 p.m. Our 212 mile drive was under sunny skies with little wind. We were set up by 2:00 p.m. even setting up the internet. We get enough local TV channels that we decided not to set up the TV dish.

The good news is that this park is right across the street from a SuperWalMart. After I had a bit of a rest I walked over there and Gordon came and picked me up when I was finished.

I spent a while on the phone trying to locate a site for us in Fort Myers. It’s amazing to me that resorts in Florida can charge $1100+/month and get away with it and be full! We’re thinking this is our last trip to Florida with the RV, too many people and too expensive! This is one park that is supposed to get back to me tomorrow so we’re planning on spending another day here in Bushnell.

Just before sunset we drove over to Floral City about 14 miles away as there were some scenic live oak trees that met in a tunnel over the road. We also drove to a little river that had some wood storks and limpkins. On our way back we picked up an Asian salad at McDonald’s and a Southwest steak bowl at Taco Bell for dinner. Yummy!

  1. couple of suggestions on your trip back north
    Oaks n Pines in Lake City, FL 16.35 with PA wifi, pull thrus, 50 amps, and right off the freeway.
    Our friends stayed at Hillside Bluegrass RV Park in Cochran, GA. It's about 47 miles southeast of Macon and cost $10/night for
    50a/W/S hook-ups.

    Yes FL is terrible for their prices as it is due to all those from up your way coming south ;-)
