October 21st, Sunday – Home is Where We Park It, Alliance Coach; The Root of the Problem

Move day today but no rush since our destination was only 30 minutes away.  We’re moving up to Alliance Coach in Wildwood, Fl for long overdue maintenance work.  They have their own campground of sorts, a huge paved parking lot with slots for I would say about 50 to 100 coaches .  Each slot is perfectly level and has water and 50 amp electric.  There is also a dump station on the way out if one needs it.

This is is our home for the next couple of days.  We got here early and snagged what I believe to be one of the better spots.  It’s up against a section of grass in the back which


is great for walking Marti.  But boy oh boy do I feel like a minnow in a tank full of whales.  To the front and either side there are nothing but really high end coaches.  I


don’t believe there is anything around us that would sell even used for under $300,000!  I’ll bet the mechanics will have a good laugh when they pull Graybeard in.  But it is what it is.  This plaice comes highly recommended by a number of others who where in Sumter Oaks and the online reviews are also excellent.  We’ll know ourselves in a couple of days.

So yesterday they solved the mystery of the slow draining sewer for the site we were using in Sumter Oaks.  It took a little digging on the part of maintenance crew but


they got to the root of the problem, literally.  One whole section was clogged with roots.


Once it was cleared out and everything was put back in order I had no further issues dumping the tanks today.  Whoever will be on that site in the future will be in good shape.

So, we’re settled in and enjoying some cooler weather.  Today it is only 79 rather than the 90’s of the last few days and we have a really nice breezed blowing in the windows.  I can get use to this real quick.

So that was the essence of our last two days on The Road of Retirement.  Laid back without a care in the world.  We’re just traveling along, hand in hand, singing our song. I won’t say goodnight since it is only 5 in the afternoon.  But I will say thanks for joining us again and we’ll catch up with you tomorrow.  Tomorrow we should have a better idea of exactly what needs to be done and how long it is going to take.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
