Short Travel Day

With lots of hugs we departed Gina and Rollie’s driveway this morning just before 9am.  Michael managed to make the turn out of their driveway without losing the jeep in the ditch!  I was proud of him!  Rollie headed back to Houston and work this morning, too.

We had an easy 224 miles drive to Summerdale, Alabama and the Plantation Escapees Park.  Our chief reason for being here—Jim and Ellie!!  We haven’t seen Jim and Ellie since this summer when they visited us in Montana.  They are some of our Arizona desert buddies—we taught them how to boondock—or rather it was a little of the blind leading the blind but we all managed quite well that winter. 

When we arrived Ellie and I took all the pooches for a short walk—a nasty cold wind was blowing.  After that walk we all gathered in their rig and visited for a while.  Michael and I took Emmi for a walk—this park has a couple huge vacant fields and Emmi was ready to play ball.

Ellie served us a wonderful dinner for this chilly weather we are having—chili with cornbread, YUM!  And peach cobbler for dessert.  We enjoyed some wine, lots of conversation and catching up.  A great evening!  And I guess we aren’t starting the diet just yet.

This is a great RV park—someone knew what they were doing when it was planned—large sites, lots of room between rows, trees, grass.  Out in the country and quiet, no lights.  If we are staying in a RV park—this is the kind of RV park we like.

It is cold here—the entire south is experiencing a cold front—I had to retrieve the wool socks and store the flip flops.  Dang it!!!!IMG_1592The other night I was pretty sure I had put Emmi in the bed.  When I went back to the bedroom I couldn’t find her, thought she had jumped off the bed, looked everywhere which is a small area in a motorhome with no slides.  Went back to the bedroom to look again, said her name and this is what I saw—she was all snuggled down for the night—NOT—at least not on my pillow!
