Loaded up the bus and left home around 11 AM. It took me a while to get to
though it’s only 87 miles from home. I meandered along the back roads (the only
way to get here, actually) listening to Frank, Dino, Rosemary, and my GPS. Cheaha State
The park sits atop
On the way here I stopped for lunch at Horseshoe Bend National Military Battlefield on the
, a site I always
enjoy visiting. I had lunch ……… Tallapoosa
..... in my van down by the river.
I was promised partly cloudy skies but it rained almost the entire trip and continues to drizzle now. But that’s OK – I’m mighty cozy here inside the bus. I’ve opened the canopy windows and have a nice cross breeze in which to watch the rain. I’m listening to some great jazz on the Weather Channel.
New experience today: getting set-up in the rain! It was a slow steady drizzle and, of course, the hook-up took longer than it should have. The first site I chose had a broken faucet. The second site was 50 Amp only. The third site proved to be the big winner.
We camped here years ago with the Casita and did some hiking. Current rate = $24.20 for water, sewer, and electric. I'm happy to report that all systems work. I've used the water heater, the heater part of the A/C unit, and am experimenting with driving on propane. The only issue has been the DVD door that won't open. But I've got my laptop if I feel like watching a movie. So I'm pretty pleased with the bus overall.
So onto the crossword puzzle, by the time I get good and stumped by it, it’ll be Happy Hour. Then Dinner Hour. John promises to call after he and Doris go to the park.
