Everglades Seasonings

View this post on Instagram Perusing the shelves at the Hammock Inn Camp Store, I spotted a selection of Everglades Seasonings. That triggered my memory – I'd added the factory to my must see map, and it was literally at the end of the road leading out of the park. Why not go right to the source?! I did 😃 …

Highlands Hammock State Park

View this post on Instagram Oops, I did it again – another state, another state parks pass. I wanted to show my support for the redesigned passport (*much* better than the old one), so I bought a copy. Then I realised it would be beneficial to have the pass, so I can collect some of those stamps. Bought one of …

Hammock Inn – Ice Cream

View this post on Instagram Sour orange ice cream. The verdict? Hmm. Well, it tastes like ice cream. And orange. And my colour-shifting @thecarwashicecreamshop @deessuperservice spoon from a summer treat near Bear Lake in Utah still tickles me every time I use it. But the nutrition label and ingredient list are slightly confusing. 3 grams of fat per serving! And …

Flying J – San Antonio

View this post on Instagram After getting clean at the Blue Beacon next door, I hit up Flying J to fill both my petrol and propane tanks. This location is popular, and the layout tricky, but, thanks to a couple of very friendly and helpful employees, we got it done! Part of the issue here is that the propane tank …

Blue Beacon – San Antonio

View this post on Instagram Nothing says "you're back on the road" quite like a "quick" fill-up and wash at a truck stop. 2 hours, y'all. Always budget for long lines and/or long waits, or be willing to give up until the next opportunity arises. Today, I *needed* that wash! The crew did a phenomenal job clearing all the dried, …

Florida Cracker Trail Map

View this post on Instagram So, that coast-to-coast jaunt I mentioned? This is it. The old Florida Cracker Trail, from Bradenton to Fort Pierce. Or Fort Pierce to Bradenton. I wasn't sure which way I wanted to make the run, and have somehow ended up smack dab in the middle as my starting point 🤣 Considering the route came about …
