  • Florida / Walt Disney World Excursion 2019

    We'll be leaving tomorrow for a two month winter excursion, from the west coast, along I-10 to Florida.

    After spending over a week at Walt Disney World's Fort Wilderness Campground, we'll slowly head back west, with many stops in between.

    As with all of our trips, we'll be posting daily stories, stops and photographs on our travel blog:

      Good timing, we lived in Florida for over nine years but now live in Nevada, couldn't hack the humidity. Our first mistake was to go to Disney World in August . The winter months are the best.

        Traveling I-10 in the winter can be interesting weather-wise, but for the most part, it's snow free and a beautiful drive.

        The Arctic Fox keeps us warm & dry.

                Been snowing all day between Tucson and Lordsburg, New Mexico --- but I-10 is an easy drive with no ice, nor accidents.

                It will be a "Three Dog Night" tonight, with a low of 17, here at the New Mexico Welcome Center.

                Sure glad we have an Arctic Fox in this weather!

                  Wow - they don't get much snow down in those parts! Here in Rio Rancho we had 4-5 inches, but it stopped snowing late last night. Stay safe and warm out there!

                    Dave...You two are really taking advantage of your AF. Is Florida in the USA? :-) Anything east of Montana is too far east for me. Guess I'm just at home on the range. Safe travels. Smokey

                      Dave, we just drove that same route yesterday towing our 25Y...headed the opposite direction. We also had snow showers, but the pavement was clear. We’re in Gila Bend, AZ, last night and tonight. Have a safe trip!

                        Was 13 degrees last night and the Arctic Fox did great. This was the coldest we've been while boondocking without 110v hook-ups.

                        Have to hand it to the full-timers who brave this weather year-round like the MudOnTheTires folks.

                        Set the furnace to 50 degrees all night, and when we awoke, the basement showed 43 degrees and the living room showed 50.

                        Off to the warmer Texas Territory....

                          Am following your adventure in Word Press. The drive to Lordsburg in snow and 13 degrees makes me glad I’m “snug as a bug” here in North TX. By the way, Welcome to TX. If come back via I-20 give us a shout as you pass thru Fort Worth.

                              We dropped off the trailer and drove the mile into town. We ate at the City Market BBQ.

                              Great old-fashioned Texas 'rib-joint' ---- great BBQ ---- Thanks for the food tip !
