For all intents and purposes, Springfield was the last stop on our 2013 Journey. We had gotten off to a rough start, having lost our dear Gracie and experienced so many problems with the Big Horn. But it settled down to a relatively carefree trip after that. We took plenty of time to bring Melody into the fold, and she responded and acclimated well. We got to spend time with some very good friends that we don’t see very often. We re-visited our favorite city. And we found a treasure trove of new stops to share with you.
We were running a bit longer than expected and were anxious to find our way to winter quarters. Our final destination was Sandy Oaks RV Resort for our second annual stay — this time a full six months. So three whistle stops later, in Paducah, KY, Chattanooga, TN and Tifton, GA, we pulled in to a warm welcome and found the same site waiting for us.
The heating system continued its funky ways, but we now had adequate warmth to postpone getting it fixed before the Florida winter settled in.
