We brought the RV up to the front of our house about three days before we planned to leave home. Then we puttered about loading more stuff into it as we thought of things we needed to take. We still forgot a lot.
I had not thought ahead and had a freezer full of food. I loaded what I could into the RV on Thursday. Then, on Friday some neighbors who volunteer at a food pantry came and picked up the rest. I did end up throwing away several days worth of leftovers in the fridge. I loaded opened boxes from the pantry and cabinets into tote bags and shoved them into the RV floor. We are not going to be able to move around well until we eat most of it.
In the morning, as we were loading in the last few things, two men dug three holes in our front yard and were running a pipe/cable/wire under the lawn.
Here is a closer look at the Ditch Witch.
We got underway at 0800. We had planned to stop for coffee with Bill and Laura in Ocala. We somehow got completely screwed up in our directions that we ended up WAY past Ocala. Andy was so annoyed, he decided that we should just keep heading north and catch up with Bill and Laura later. It was a big disappointment as we don’t get to see them often enough.
One of my favorites, if not my very favorite town in the whole U.S. is Madison, Georgia. It is full of charming old homes and an equally charming downtown. Just Google some images of Madison Georgia and you’ll see what I mean. We spent the night in the Cracker Barrel parking lot.
That’s an impressive bit of machinery!
Good to see you back on the road again. Hope you have a great trip.
Thank you, Peter. I am happy to be on the road. I love the new house, but am so tired of unpacking, setting up, rearranging, etc. It is good to get away!

Yup – ’tis the season! I’m on the road, too, but with the car, not the Roadtrek, as I have people to stay with and kayaks to borrow. Am in Northern Neck VA and will get around to posting in the next little while. Travel well; maybe post a tentative itinerary? Beth
I love the Northern Neck. We’ve spent a good bit of time there on the boat. So far, two months in Big Creek, then on to Wisconsin to spend a bit of time with Jennifer. Then we’re heading west to national parks and visit Christopher in California. We have not worked out any details yet. You take care and drive carefully.
Where are you headed?
Great Smoky Mountains National Park for May and June. Then Wisconsin. Then west.
It’s great to get your posts again! It feels like “coming home”.
Had to laugh at your overstocked food dilemma. I do the same thing! And wonder what on earth is the matter with my brain that I didn’t think ahead. And never seem to learn! Groan.
Thank you for the heads up on Madison GA. Gonna put it in my “travel wish list” file. 😎
Safe, happy and healthy travels!
I guess I got out of the habit when we were full time in Sao. Never had to move food then.
Was wondering if you were going back to Big Creek, and got the answer. Be safe and enjoy as usual. Book was terrific.
Yes, we are in Big Creek now. I’m glad you liked the book, even though you already read much of it in the blogs and logs.
