Location

Sweet Home Alabama

The second stop on our cross country trip, this park is located off of I10 in Robertsdale, Alabama. Our navigation system had no idea to get us here, so I had to call to confirm what I saw on the map. The roads leading to the campground are barely one lane each way, so it was kind of stressful making turns and having another car passing on the opposite side.

Check-In

Office, clubhouse, laundry, and bath.

Checking in was a pretty quick. We were escorted to our site by someone with a golf cart. Amber drove this leg of our trip, she drove to the campsite, leveled and got the slides out while I went to the office with our escort. After checking-in, walked back to the campsite and got the shore cord and water connected before the rain poured down.

Camp Site

Campsite #3

The park is clean with 50 amp, water and sewer, everything we needed. We arrived during a rain storm, so the absence of any shade did not bother us. But in the summer I can imagine it gets HOT. They have planted trees which will make things much better in the coming years. We had a site with a concrete pad, but we saw other RVs on grass sites. With the rain, the ground was pretty saturated, so we were glad not to be sinking in the mud.

WiFi & Cellular

I worked on the ride to the campground, but I did have to finish work after we arrived. The WiFi was nonexistent when we arrived. I am working on this post on the WiFi and it’s actually working well. But it cur out again, so I had to finish this post using my AT&T hotspot.

Facilities

This is not a resort, but it does have the basics any camper needs. It has a clubhouse, laundry, and bath services.

Conclusion

We would probably stay here again. It’s a clean park, but the WiFi is a problem if we need internet.

May 12 – Tallahassee, FL to Robertsdale, AL

Azela Acres RV Park – Ms. Gaye

The second leg of our trip was about 231 miles and it took us about 5 hours with stops.

We knew that meeting people at campgrounds was part of RV life. We met Ms. Gaye, the owner of Azalea Acres RV Park while walking around the park after dinner. She loved talking and telling us about the park and shared a bit of her life with us. Christopher enjoyed talking with her, telling her random things about his life. I can’t help think about what our son is learning from this trip. I hope he remembers this for the rest of his life.

Check-In

The Office

Checking in was a pretty quick. Amber pulled Irving in front of the office while I checked in. I was in and out in about 5 minutes. Since Amber drove this leg of our trip, she drove to the campsite. The roads are a bit narrow, which we are finding in the norm with campgrounds for some reason.

Camp Site

Campsite #48

The park is very well kept and it is managed by a very friendly couple who Christopher and I talked to about our trip. Our campsite was very shady, with tall trees. There are no concrete pads, just hard ground with gravel. With that said, our automatic leveling jacks were able to level our coach on the second attempt.

The services included at the site are 30/50amp electric, fresh water (1 spigot with splitter), dump and cable TV with a wide range of channels.

WiFi & Cellular

I worked on the ride up to the campground, but I did have to finish work after we arrived. The WiFi is very good and plenty fast. I am working on this post on the WiFi and uploads pictures is a breeze. The woman that checked us in mentioned that they had just upgraded to fiber optic internet service and it shows.

Facilities

This is not a resort, but it does have the basics any camper needs.

Community Room
Laundry
Shower and Bathroom

Conclusion

We would definitely stay here again. It’s a clean park with cable TV and great WiFi.

Twas The Night Before…

It is the night before we begin our 6+ week trip cross country. I’m not going to lie, it was a stressful day for me. I had to work while Amber continued to stock Irving and I wanted to help.

Although I will be taking some vacation time during our adventure, this is the first time I will be working day after day while Amber does the bulk of the driving to the Gand Canyon. I am very nervous about having reliable Internet access to collaborate with coworkers. The list of worries goes on and on.

I am most likely making more of the bad things than they will turn out to be. It’s how I’ve always been, but maybe this trip will give me a new perspective and make me learn to wing it and take things as they come more.

Time will tell.
