We are over night near Savannah Georgia, but still in SC.
The traffic today was amazingly sparse. We started off in the rain. Some very heavy. But before we reached our overnight spot we had out-run the rain and we parked in the dry.(rain just caught up)
On the road, As you would expect, everything loose must be anchored so it won’t move around. If not stored pretty well, pots, pans and dishes can get on your nerves (if your hearing is good).
When we get ready to leave Sherry takes care of the inside and I do the outside. She has always stored her cast iron frying pan in the oven. (Not much frying anymore, but it is to bake cornbread) Anyway that makes too much noise going down the road. So it and the toaster oven must go back on the bed. Her birthday rose goes back on the bed also, but for protection so it won’t fall over. Our dining table chairs have rollers so she uses a large bungee cord that she places around them to hold them in place.
(BTW do you wash your cast iron, or just wipe it out?)
90% of our trips everything stays in place, but there is always the exception, like the other day when the dump truck pulled out in front of us and I had to lock the coach brakes down. At times like that you learn what you forgot to secure. LOL
Just a little trivia about the RV living.
OH YEAH! Sherry is a great grandmother again. We thought we might be home for the birth of Josh and Megan’s baby, but knowing that babies don’t always arrive on some ‘scheduled’ date, we decided to head south. We were into South Carolina when Josh called and told us the baby was here, and was a girl.
The couple had chosen NOT to learn the gender of the baby BEFORE birth. Odd in this day and time methinks. I actually dreamed the baby was a girl, I told Sherry a week or so ago but decided to keep it to ourselves, since I ain’t no real prophet. LOL
Then Sherry told him I had dreamed a girl. Sherry asked her name, he said they still had not decided. LOL Josh being the witty guy he is said, “But if grandpa had given us the heads-up we would have.” LOL
Mama and baby girl are healthy.
AND A LOTTA THAT
