In the last two-three weeks, we have used more propane than we have EVER used since we started living in the motor home! Normally, we fill up twice a year, and generally, our 25-gallon tank takes only 15 gallons when get it filled. Our last fill up was in October, on our way to Florida, and our tank is currently showing only 1/4 tank, so we're filling up tomorrow morning
We are parked at our Thousand Trails Membership Park, which is pretty much packed with snowbirds at this time of year. Some new rules that prohibit us from having more than two reservations during "high season" have made it difficult for us to use our Thousand Trails Parks in the way we planned and expected when we first went full time. We had to show up here without a reservation (luckily, we could check online and see that there were some spaces available before we got here), because we have reservations at our Thousand Trails Orlando Park already booked for next week, when Zach is here with us, and for the first week of March, when our friends from Northern Ireland are going to be here and staying at a hotel in Orlando. Again, we are reminded how lucky we are that Pat has allowed us to have our lovely spot for the winter at Lone Cedar Ranch!
Tomorrow morning, we'll drive another ~3 hours to a County Park inn Sunrise, near Ft. Lauderdale. We'll spend the next couple of days exploring Ft. Lauderdale and points south with friends Joe and Sherry Steichen, who flew in from Kansas today (how sad that they were hoping for sunshine and beach getaways from the wintery weather up north!). We know that we'll have a good time, no matter the weather!
