|Dam over Apalachicola River at Chattahoochee FL|
About 40 miles east of town is Chattahoochee FL. It is on the border between Florida and Georgia. Chattahoochee is famous for being a historic town on the Apalachicola River. In early territorial days - there was an arsenal in town that was important during the Seminole Wars. Also - the Florida State Hospital is there - famous for the movie Chattahoochee - a story about the hospital for the criminally insane.
In the picture above is the Jim Woodruff Dam built across the river in 1957. The dam produces hydroelectric power. It also controls water flow on the river. On the left you can see a lock that allows ocean going ships to climb up over the dam. One can proceed all the way to Atlanta - by crossing through several more dams. According to a local resident - a company is starting an excursion cruise from the Gulf - up thru the many dams.
In the picture - downtown Chattahoochee would be about 1/2 miles to the right. As I visited the dam - not this picture - the power plant was operating - producing white water.
I drove over US 90 from Tallahassee.
Yesterday I visited this 32 foot motorhome in Chattahoochee - about 40 miles west of here. It is a Fleetwood with a Ford V10 engine. Although it is 14 years old - it is in nice shape - with only 37000 miles on it.
It has a private bedroom in back with a queen bed. It has a split bathroom with toilet one side - shower the other. It has a full kitchen. The living room has a sofa bed - and a dinette that turns into a bed. The unit is 8 feet wide and 31 feet long. The engine runs smoothly as does the generator. The AC has outlets in each room. It has a trailer hitch - also a nice large awning outside. No slide outs.
The unit was clean with no odors.
