Our Travel Update So Far

We spent longer in Georgia at Lake Harmony RV Park than we anticipated but it was so nice and our friends, Betty and Bob who we traveled out with, were arriving on the 1st of May so we stayed to surprise them.  A week at the park is a bit pricey but if you get the site on the lake so worth it. Extra days ran us about 39.00 a night.

While we were in Georgia I got the front curtains made. 3 84" panels placed sideways and a small hem at the top to put the pins that hold it onto the little circle do dads in the curved rail on top of the window. They are lighter, somewhat black out, massively inexpensive and easier to clean.  And they look nice!

 The last night.

Sammy getting ready to travel. Everyone needs to be in their places.

But not before Lola gets a last stroll in the lake. She's afraid to go in deep and I keep her on a long lead but she loves wading.

And we're off!!!

Our next stop is The Barnyard RV Park in Lexington, SC. About 39.00 a night through Good Sam and we just stayed one night. I got my poor plants out of the shower so they could breath. Someone placed the plant on the road before we left the park last September and I've been re rooting and planting ever since. Excited. Leave no plant behind!!!

Our next stop was Ft. Chiswell RV Park in Max Meadows ,Va.  I loved this park last September so we came back. The back pasture was under some sort of construction so the cattle and sheep were out front the first night. This is also a two night stay for us, and we got in and hooked up just before the thunderstorms and rain started.

The next day was a celebration day...

Sammy turns 14!!! 

Ft. Chiswell is $38.00 a night, big pull thru's and quiet.

Then we had to leave!


A three some odd hour trip took way longer this travel day. There were sections that it just poured. This area wasn't bad but everyone seemed to like to zoom past us. We let them. Traveled slow and made it safe and weary to Shenandoah Valley Campground in Mt. Jackson,  Va.  We were staying one night. Then today were heading to Carlisle, Pa and the Western RV Park. One of my favs. (It has tubs of different flavors of Hersheys ice cream.)

We arrived at Western RV Park and Roger asked if our site would be available for another night and voila'...it was!

This is the way to the Western RV Park.  I have to smile because when we were first starting out on our adventures and total newbies this would have been part of our adventure. We would take the wrong turn and end up driving through a neighborhood that was marked "No commercial or heavy vehicles". I would wave while cringing and hoping the rig wouldn't sink into the road but thankfully we haven't done that in a few years. 

At the end of the lovely neighborhood we see the entrance gate to our stay.

I've changed Sammy's "meds" around and I'm finding he's more alert now during the day. At night I give him his CBD oil and he sleeps soundly but daytime is his Technyflex pills. One in the morning and one in the evening with dinner. If he has any inflammation or pain it will be reduced or taken away. From his excitement on going out for his walks..he's doing great. 

And he's got us to our place for two nights perfectly!!

Our view from our bathroom window. (Why do I suddenly feel like singing an old Beetles tune?? haha)

Well that's it for today.  Tomorrow we head to Matamoras, Pa (though I keep calling it metamorphosis ), for one night then up bright and early the next day to drive to Lee, N.H. It will be a long drive but I get excited being from New England. It's home.  We'll be seeing friends and family and I already have a date with my daughter and granddaughters for Sunday...Mother's Day. What could be better!!

Thanks for coming on our journey with us...I'll be back to painting and working at the campground this year so it will be a fun season! We have experienced deluge rain and so far the resealed seams have held beautifully.  Our other "project" this summer is to paint CiCiBlue's walls. Not the wood but the beige wallpaper that they put in RV's.  Passing thoughts have been, hmm, sometime trade her in? (Shhh, I never said that CiCI) but you take the risk of buying someone else's problems. The Universe knows what we/she needs and I have Faith. 

New cold wax and oils coming and some fun dog/Lab art too. Roger's making eggs and bacon so I am so ending this!!! Love you all!
