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.
