The mountains are really going off right now. This is the most perfect snow one could ever ask for . Its like Utah snow. Light, fluffy and thick. Travel bans got eased last night. If there ever was a time to take a day or two off work for a vacation, this is it.

I had to BING it, had NO idea where Eastbank was located, and I have bee to the said Lake before.

Overview

Eastbank Campground is located on Lake Seminole on the Georgia-Florida state line.

The lake and surrounding area provide a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for fishing, camping, boating, picnicking, hiking, biking and birding.

Just booked into Ft. Lauderdale. $100 cheaper RT to go into Lauderdale than Ft Myers. Plus I got 2 direct flights instead of stopovers. Saved enough to get the rental car free. Rental car rates are much better out of the high volume Lauderdale than the sleepy Ft. Myers.

My sis called yesterday. She's setting up a family gathering in South Florida. In May. Looks like I'm going on an unexpected trip.

I actually get to central Florida all the time but for business not pleasure.

Just got a new used car, heyheyhey. Now I can feel relaxed with taking a car trip without fear of breaking down.

I'm going to take a short excursion up to northern Vermont or Maine for end of season spring skiing.

Also, both Southwest and the car rental companies have been filling my inbox with offers, coupons and specials. Spring is apparently a slow season (other than for skiers) and they are looking to fill seats.

Late winter / early spring is without exception the best ski conditions. From March 1st to mid April or later the mountains are at their peak. The best. Plus the energy is in the air of a new season, you can feel it.

Best time to travel. I like to take a week and combine one or two (or more) ski mountain jaunts out west with something touristy , like visiting the Grand Canyon.

Haven't gone to the beach yet. But a train trip sounds interesting. I been checking out getting a rail pass and maybe trying one of the classic routes. Maybe "City of New Orleans" or the "Empire Builder"
