A nice leisurely drive down I-75 for 178 miles brought us across the Georgia-Florida line to Lake City, Florida and one of our regular stopovers at Oaks ‘n Pines RV Resort. It’s 7 miles East of I-75, just off I-10 Exit 303. It is a Passport America member and run by one of the nicest couples you will find (along with their 34 lb black cat!). It’s FHU, 30/50 Amp, level pull-thrus with free cable and WiFi for $22.20/night PA.
If you should happen to stay 2 nights, as we do, be sure to check out the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant in Lake City for great steaks and a perfect slab of BBQ ribs and/or The Gondolier Restaurant for great Italian and Greek fare. You won’t be disappointed with either and they offer a discount if you mention you are staying at Oaks ‘n Pines.
Day 24 – Our last day on the Snowbird RV Trail for this trip as we cruise down I-75 for our Winter destination near East Tampa.
All-in-all a great trip with no mechanical difficulie’s and we made some new friends. We visited 5 new campgrounds among the 9 we stopped at, and traveled a good distance along I-75, “America’s Busiest Interstate,” which we had not done before. Again, smooth sailing and no problems along I-75.
