November 1, 2015 – Marathon, Florida

Midway campground is, well, about mid way across the southern tip of Florida in the everglades on US 41. I was hoping for a night sky spread with stars, but when I poked my head out the door to check, the moon had washed them all away.  Sigh.

There is not much to say about the drive, other than the road construction we encountered in the past on US 41 (the Tamiami Trail) is complete.  It is an elevated section of road to let the water and animals pass under. Also, they are widening Krome Avenue between US41 and downtown Homestead.  It is a busy and dangerous section of road.  I was saddened to see more farm fields becoming housing developments.  There is not that much land left between the urban sprawl and the Everglades.

We topped off the diesel tanks and disconnected the car at the Valero station about a mile before we got to Key RV. We had no trouble getting the RV parked in our small site on a narrow road.  We’ve finally mastered it.

This post ends the daily blog for the season.  I will continue to post when there is something of interest.  That means of interest to me. I will post Andy’s trip summary when he give it to me.

I plan to spend hours and hours per day finishing up that Big Creek book I’ve been talking about for a year or so now.
