Yes, the first month of 2009 is just about history. It was a pretty full month for us, especially with the first six days being spent on holiday travel. Now with January behind us, it's time for us to get back on the road and head west. Tomorrow's the day!
We spent today doing the odd chores that come with getting the rig ready to travel. Unfortunately, most of my part can't be done until it's time to go. I do the inside stuff - rearranging the furniture, securing the loose items so they don't become projectiles, pull the slides in (well, that's not tough - I just hold the button!), ensuring that all the cabinets are tightly closed. But, I did do the laundry first thing this morning. Then, I started organizing tax info. Randy did some outside work, getting stuff stored back in the "basement," and putting the hitch back into the bed of the truck.
This evening we went out to dinner at The Olive Garden with Dick & Pat and Ron & Ruth. We had a good dinner and even better company. These two couples are such good friends and we will miss them. But, it's nice to know we'll see them again soon. We're coming back to this site in November, but even before that, we're going to meet up with Dick & Pat in Branson, MO.
We've had a great season here in Alabama. This truly is our winter home. We have become part of the community, making lifelong friends.
The next blog posting will be from New Orleans, LA! We have about a 3.5 hour drive tomorrow to Bayou Segnette State Park.
Until the next time . . .
