Run to Civilization



I suppose we had to leave the woods sooner or later. My lovely wife was getting low on yarn so we had Google Maps direct us to a Michael's. Grabbed lunch at a Panera Bread's. Then we were off to do some much needed laundry.

The clouds were moving in so it was a good time to run errands. Sure enough, the rain came down like it does here in Florida. Fortunately, the sun usually isn't too far behind, so that's good.

My lovely wife never got a chance to practice driving the van before we left. The weather had turned snowy and road conditions were poor. She's been driving it around the campground at slow speeds. So far so good.

The campground has been pretty empty. I'm told that will change on the weekend. I don't doubt it as it was impossible to book the weekend on-line. However, we were able to extend into the weekend once we got here.

The lack of facilities keep some people away. A few people have solar panels like we do. Others run small quiet generators. They have to shut down at 10. Of course, other folks do just fine without electricity. My main concern has been having a enough power for my c-pap. So far so good. Having power for the laptop is a bonus.

  1. When you've lost the weight you want to lose you may not need the c-pap. Wouldn't that be nice?!

    1. Even that might not do it, but it couldn't hurt. Started using one after a bad case of smoke ihalation.

  2. I wish I was in Florida now. It's back to the near below zero temps at night and frigid days here.

    1. It's turned cool here, but not that cold. Dang, that's cold for GA!

      You are a days drive away from better weather.

    2. Yeah, but I'd need an eighteen wheeler to transport all the animals. And that's before my daughter's horse gets here.

    3. That is why I limit us to one dog, and she travels well.

  3. You're in Jacksonville, right? I'm in Hernando. Very country and as close to looking like Indiana as we could find. But god help ya if you need something at 9:05pm. It's a dark ghost town.

    1. Thanks Spud. We have been checking out some of the free areas. However, with my lovely wife's discount, the Federal campgrounds are a bargain. Worth it for the hot showers alone.
