Day Finally Here........

Day Finally Here..........

Well, sort of.
Planned date was first of June, but looks like events are falling together so nicely that we are getting our trailer two months early. I've [unpacked] the tow in preparation. Well.................had all the space filled up. And didn't need half (well, maybe 3/4) of the stuff I packed. Been packing and re-packing, and finally had to unpack......LOL.

Guess I sound like most newbies.

You should have seen my first deer hunting trip!

Heading back to Snoozyville,
but before we do, I've had to put stuff back in the truck..........lol.

Wives and daughters think they need clothes for some reason.

Safe travels! It's an exciting time for you. You'll make a ton of memories from this point on. Be sure to document your travels and excursions. The time may come when you can no longer go... when that time comes... dig out the book and relive the experiences.

Picked up our Snoozy yesterday.
Thought I forgot my camera. Even though there was nothing to take pictures of as it was a down pour all the way from Oklahoma to South Carolina. Checked the weather and it looked like it was going to be worse on the return trip. So, late last night we pulled in to our son's business in Odessa, Fl area. Our first night was spent in the Snoozy last night locked in his warehouse where he has his business. All the parks we checked were booked. But this way the Snoozy with us inside is under roof..............LOL And it's free.

Oh, and found my camera as we unpacked stuff from the truck and transferred them to the Snoozy. Haven't taken any pictures yet, but will have to wait until we get back home to post them.

Last night felt like a good stay in a motel room but a lot better.
I usually sleep 3 or 4 hours, but didn't get up until 9:30 this morning.
It was in the 40's on the trip, but in the 70's down here in Florida.
Had to run the air conditioner which made it nice. Even in a warehouse. lol.

I will report back next week. Have a great week end everyone.

We're back home now.
We spent three nights at the son's location. [Odessa, FL area]
We left there Sunday. We spent Sunday night in a WalMart parking lot.
The generator vibrated too much so we shut it down and used the Fantastic fan.
With the window open it got really cool. I didn't stop until we were out of Florida,so was very pleasant with the fan running. We drove until we made it to Petit Jean State Park, Morrilton, Arkansas. Spent two nights there. Got there about dark the first night. Pretty much layed around in the Snoozy the next day. The gnats were bad the first night. It was windy the next day so was pleasant.

Guess I was exhausted from all that driving. I was in no shape to do any hiking and the Camp sights were mostly two hours hikes. Weather was forecast as bad so we left about 8 am this morning. Got home about 1 pm. Made the right decision. Arkansas was having tornadoes. It's been raining off and on here. I unloaded the truck and camper in between rains. Man, was I carrying things we would never use.........lol. Next trip will be more streamline.

I haven't unloaded the camera yet, so what few pics I got will be coming a bit later.

Here was the first picture I was able to take.
There was a break in the weather when we crossed from South Carolina into Georgia on our way to Florida. We stopped at a Chick-Fil-A to eat and snapped a couple of photos.



This is a closer shot of our daughter Trisha at same location.

Glad you made it home safely. I'm betting some of the exhaustion was burned off adrenalain from all the excitement.

Thanks for posting the pictures!
