After Houston (see the post before last for how we got that far, we passed out of Texas, through Louisiana, and into Alabama. Our stop there was near Mobile and way after dark. No satellite available because of extensive tree cover, but we put up the TV antenna and watch some local TV. From there, we had 590 miles to home. Too much for one day, or so we thought. We had done a long push home before but it got us in really late (actually early) and we had to wait until the next morning to get settled. However, another night on the road was not something we were looking forward to.
Fortunately, the way was clear and we were able to get in by 10:30 PM EDT. Even with a quick stop in Crestview, Florida to pick up the last of our forwarded mail and top off on fuel. We parked the RV in a site near our home unit and we were there. However, since it was late, the TV was still in the RV, and the bed in the house was covered with Ellyn’s materials from the lanai, we slept one last night in the RV.
We then had a couple of days to get things we needed out of the RV and into the house. Then, our original plan had been scraped, and we moved the RV into storage, and we headed out yet again. This time we took the car and an, ugh, suitcase and went off to Disney World for three days with our friends from New York. Jordy stayed behind with our friends Dave and Myra, who were also the couple we traveled to Yellowstone with, and who now own a house down here near Sarasota.
And now we are back for another 6 months (at least) in our house here in Sun-N-Fun RV Resort. We will enjoy it, getting back together with all our friends and enjoying the season’s activities. Geoff has already been throwing horseshoes and Ellyn is looking forward to her sewing.
