Miami/Kissimmee

MIAMI - KISSIMMEE

Continuando nossa rota, das Keys chegamos a Miami onde ficamos acampados num dos Parques municipais chamado Larry and Penny Thompson Memorial Park and Campground que possui 240 sites para trailers e motorhomes com piscina, lavanderias, playground, area para picnic, lago, alem de 275 acres de area verde preservada em que se pode andar de bicicleta, a cavalo, fazer trilhas, pescar, alem de apreciar o verde e a natureza...estando dentro do Parque e ate possivel esquecer-se que se esta em Miami...

De Miami retornamos para nosso QG...Sherwood Forest RV Resort, em Kissimmee, onde temos o outro motorhome que deixaremos aqui nos EUA para viajar dentro do pais quando terminarmos esta aventura. Aqui no resort temos um site onde deixamos o outro motorhome quando voltamos ao Brasil e o complexo compreende o resort para trailers e motorhomes com mais de 1000 sites, que possui piscinas, club house, academia,playground,mini golfe, basquete, shuffleboard(tipo jogo de bocha),area para churrasco e picnic,  atividades como bingo, apresentacao de filmes,carteado, jantares, almocos e cafe da manha programados com os "vizinhos" em datas especificas, alem de se fazer amizade com pessoas de diferentes lugares a ate paises pois os turistas do norte dos EUA e do Canada(chamados de "snow birds") fogem da neve e do frio para as bandas da Florida no inverno. Alem do Resort ha dois complexos de casas pre-fabricadas que eles chamam de mobile homes ou park models e que perfaz uma area grande de casas que fazem parte do empreendimento.

Aqui estamos na W Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway que e tambem chamada de 192 e estamos a 4 milhas (pouco mais de 6 km) dos Parques da Disney e a 1,5 milha do Old Town que e um complexo de lojas e empreendimentos retratando a Kissimmee de antigamente e aos sabados ha encontro e desfile de carros antigos, com direito a musicas e dancas de epoca. Ao lado do Old Town ha um parque de diversoes chamado Fun Spot em que a gurizada se diverte. Nos geralmente vamos de bicicleta para assistir o desfile de carros antigos.

Voltamos ao QG para nos prepararmos para "levantar ancora" no inicio de setembro pois como temos uma longa jornada e nao sabemos o que vamos encontrar pela estrada, estamos preparando o motorhome com pecas de reposicao e fazendo uma revisao completa nele para nao sermos pegos de surpresa.

E tambem porque participamos do World's Longest Yard Sale - mas isso vamos contar no proximo "capitulo"...kkk

Continuing on our route, from the Keys we stopped in Miami where we camped at the Larry and Penny Thompson Memorial Park and Campground,which has 240 sites for RVs, and in the camping facility there's a pool, children's playground, picnic shelters, planned activities, swimming lake and waterslide, horse trails, hiking trails, bike trails and fishing, besides being adjacent to a 275-acre public park with preserved woodlands to enjoy. Being in the park it is easy for one to almost forget you are in the Miami area...

From Miami we returned to our HQ ...Sherwood Forest RV Resort, in Kissimmee, where we will keep the other RV which we will use to travel in the US when we return from our "adventure" trip. Here at the Resort we rent a site where we leave our RV when we are back in Brazil and at this resort there are pools, playground, bbq and picnic areas, basketball court, mini golf, shuffleboard, fitness room, club house, planned activities like bingo, cards, workshops, potluck dinners, breakfast socials, movie night, besides the chance to meet people from different places and even different countries since the "snow birds" from northern US and Canada come down south running away from the snow and winter weather. Besides the RV resort there's also two complexes of Park model houses which makes this neighborhood quite nice.

Here we are at 5300 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, also 192, and we are about 4 miles from the Disney Parks and 1.5 miles from Old Town, with its many shops and eateries picturing Old Town Kissimme and every Saturday there's a vintage cars cruise with songs and dancing from the good ol' times...By Old Town there's also the amusement park called Fun Spot where the youngsters really have fun.We normally ride our bikes over to Old Town.

We returned to our HQ because we intend to start our journey in the beginning of September and since this will be a long trip and we don't know what we will encounter in our way we needed to prepare the RV, buy spare parts and try to make a thorough check in the RV as not to have any surprises.

And also because we participated in the World's Longest Yard Sale - but this is the story of the next "chapter"...
