This post represents another installment in The Big Switcheroo series – tales from last spring’s epic journey from the northeast to the Florida Keys and back – involving family, friends and an extraordinary range of adventures.
No, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth. Alan and I were camping for a full two weeks at our family favorite, Northampton Beach Campground on Great Lake Sacandaga in central New York. The first week was spent with fellow owners of travel trailers and fifth wheels made by Outdoors RV Manufacturing. The get together – a small gathering of only 7 ORV rigs – was tons of fun, despite being somewhat restricted by current COVID guidelines. I’ll be covering that event in a future post, for sure. The second week was spent with our daughter, son and our son’s girlfriend, and that, too, was absolutely delightful. Now, we need a vacation from the vacation.
In the last installment of this series of posts, I recounted how Alan and I had spent several enjoyable days at Ortona South, an Army Corps of Engineers campground on Florida’s Okeechobee Waterway. Our trip through the mid-Atlantic states and along the east coast was winding down, but we were nowhere near finished with the highlights. Still ahead were Biscayne National Park and the Florida Keys. But first, the Everglades.
