Another lovely visit with friends..

Pittman Visitor Center
Altoona, FL

We have been blessed to meet several RVers in the last 4 years.

George and I first met this lovely couple at the April 2010 RV-Dreams rally
in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Jim & Linda Smith went full time on the road in 2001,
and have recently purchased a home in DeBary, FL.
Their time on the road is on hold while Linda undergoes some medical treatments.

It turns out that they aren't that far from where we are workamping here in the forest,
so today George & I took a drive to their home and have lunch with them.

We had a nice time catching up with them!

Jim & George ordered some Chinese food and went and picked it up,
while Linda and I sat and chatted some more.
The food & conversation was great!

We really enjoyed visiting with them,
and we also got to meet Blaine!

You see, Blaine is the author of Jim & Linda's blog :-)

We hope to see them again while we are still in the area!


  1. So glad you got to see them! I follow their blog, although I rarely comment, but I sure hope everything works out for them and that Linda will get better quickly.

  2. We first met Jim and Linda at the same rally, and were lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time with them there. We've been able to visit with them at least once a year since then, except last year. They're very special people, and we're glad you were able to spend some time with them.

  3. So much fun renewing friendships on the road.

  4. They are a special couple to me because their's was the first blog I followed. I will always read Jim's posts. It looks like Linda is handling chemo as well as can be expected and Jim offers his support.

  5. Jim and Linda have the best kind of pet. I wish them the best in their new chapter. Linda will be an inspiration to all of us.

  6. Did you get Blaine's autograph? He is a world famous barker, I mean blogger! :cD
