It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Slowly Crawling Home.



Our Location today is Atlanta, Georgia.

You could tell it was a pretravel night because both Kathy and I were awake on and off throughout the night. Then to add insult to injury we were wide awake and having breakfast by 7:30. Kathy forbid me to take pictures of our Strawberry covered Eggos this morning instead you’ll just have to imagine them with the Whip Cream on them. Oh they were so good!!!!
Kathy really wanted to bring one of those beautiful swans from the park home with us but they kept their distance from the shore and after seeing the alligator in the water yesterday she didn’t feel like wading after the swans. Fortunately with all the prep work we had done we were rolling out the gate by 9:10 this morning heading for highway I-95 North.
Throughout the day we traveled at highway speeds only slowing down for the interchanges and to stop for an early lunch at a Cracker Barrel in Dublin Georgia just off Highway 16. (Again pictures were not taken of this meal.) We had planned on stopping overnight in Macon, Georgia but according to Mapquest we would have to drive an hour north to the campground and backtrack the same road in the morning. With Atlanta only 45 minutes away we picked up fuel at the Pilot station and kept those wheels rolling.
 
Once we were on I-75 traffic was starting to get heavier but the GPS read that we were only ten miles from our destination. That’s when it happened! Suddenly the red brake lights started coming on and movement came to a halt. There was no signs of emergency vehicles just so many vehicles entering and leaving the highway it just caused a tie-up. We lucked out by staying in the slow lane and we reach our exit in twenty minutes.
Now this delay caused us another problem but it wasn’t just us. Anyone using a GPS to get to the Atlanta South RV Resort had this problem. The GPS first takes you down an unpaved road where you can see the back of the park up on the hill through the trees. Then it brings you into a subdivision where everyone has to back around a corner and return to the unpaved road. Now you have to make a 120 degree left turn to head down a different road which finally gets you to your destination. You would think that this problem would get fixed quickly at Google Maps but apparently the GPS powers that be have been doing this to people for years.  
Once we were registered in the park we were brought to our very level crushed stone site. The stone pads are about Twenty Feet wide but only Fifty Feet long. So after unhooking we fit just fine and finished setting up the trailer inside and out in less than a half hour.
 
This place is packed.
After traveling 234.6 miles today we decided having Meatloaf sandwiches for supper was more than adequate. (Again we have no food pictures to temp you with at all today.) Tomorrow and Monday we have a few things planned to keep us busy. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Getting (and keeping) a clean desk is easy. And clean doesn't mean organized. Clean means people walk past and wonder if someone works there. Clean means as little as possible, accompanied by next-to-godliness surfaces… People who say they "know where everything is" are delusional. No, they don't unless they're looking for a mess.

  1. Maybe the park could put up a sign to keep GPS people from making that mistake?
    Isn't it funny (not ha ha funny) that traffic, congestion, accidents, etc. happen when you're so close to your destination.

  2. The GPS can sure lead you astray sometimes. Don't rush home because tomorrow is going up to 18c then back colder again for the next two weeks.

  3. That park does look a bit tight, but at least you did not let the GPS defeat you:)
