Overnight at the Cracker Barrel!

Yes, we are spending the night in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel in Mebane, NC. I know, I know - you all are thinking Randy has achieved CB Nirvana! :) Actually, we're just trying to save a few bucks on site fees. Of course, by the time we have breakfast here tomorrow morning, we probably won't have saved a penny!

Anyway, this is something we've never done before - stayed overnight somewhere that is NOT a campground. Usually for overnighters we try to find a cheap campground to pull into, but we decided to give this a try. Many full-time RVers do this on a regular basis. Some even stay at truck stops for a couple of days. I'm not THAT enamored of saving a few bucks!! But, we'll see how we do. The big thing about doing this is that we have no utilities, none, nada, zilch. Since we have no generator, we have no utilities; other than propane that is. So, we'll be reading and going to bed early.

Oh and for those of you who are keeping count - after breakfast tomorrow, Randy will have 58 CBs under his belt - literally!

Tomorrow we'll get to Dan & Debbie's. It's only a couple of hours from here. That's where we'll be for the next week.

And I'm trying a new color for the type this time. Let me know what you think.

Until the next time . . .

    This color font is much better. The other was pretty bright!

    And enjoy the Cracker Barrel (I won't call you Rednecks, don't worry).

  2. We like to color as it is easy to read.
    A couple of weeks ago when we came across the country we stayed at several Wal-marts and saved several $$. That was untill we went inside.

  3. Hoping you enjoyed your CB overnight stay and breakfast!
    I don't go to WalMart very often, but I've seen lots of RVs parked in their lots overnight, too. I know not as glamorous as CB, but...

    BTW- the navy color is easier to read- my eyes are getting old (I'm not just my eyes!). I like the new layout!

  4. I enjoy this new font color better :)

  5. Yes, the new font color is much easier on the eyes to read....

    You know - the money saved by spending the night in CB is a wash when you get up and have breakfast there!!!

    Have fun,
