Tour Day today and I was really looking forward to it.
Did you catch that last sentence? You will climb 8 stories to exit. Because of that, I ended up flying solo today. And I’m here to tell you it was a chore to get back up, especially the closer you got to the surface. I was gasping for air due to the heat and humidity the last stretch that took us up and out. Well, more about my cave tour tomorrow.
OK, the cave tour was from 11 am to 12 noon. What to do now that it was over? Barbara said Let’s move to our new home today so that we avoid driving and setting up in the rain tomorrow. That works for me. So after the cave tour I disconnected water and electric, Barbara brought the slides in while I was on the tour, up with the jacks and away we went.
We only had a 45 minute ride to our new home.
This is the sign that tells us we are home.
The road leading in.
Remember the empty park from yesterday?
To the right of our new home.
To the left of our new home. I’ll take a guess and say probably more than 50% of those here are permanent.
Our new home until the 30th. Site spacing is so, so. It’s not the worse that we’ve had to cope with, not the best either. We’re comfortable with it.
It is a pull through, plenty long enough for Elvira and Little Graybeard. It is paved, reasonably level, a little tweaking with the jacks got us dead on. I was able to get us in a position for the satellite antenna to get a clear view of the southern sky.
However, it getting us in position for DISH to work, it put us a country mile from the sewer hookup! There is a closer one, right by the power pedestal but it is plugged up. Water and electric were no problem. You can see from the picture above if you don’t have to worry about a satellite antenna, you could slide back and put the sewer adjacent to the wet bay. You would then end up parking in the front.
We’re home and ready for the rain. I caulked a few spots on the roof. The tow bar cover is on as are the tire covers and the privacy screen for the front windshield. Time to discover if we have any leaks. Let it rain, let rain, let it rain.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We had hoped to go to a fine German restaurant for lunch today, but
we settled instead for quick and easy. We’ll do a bit more research and then pick a German restaurant to go to in the coming week.
We’re home, happy, and still traveling along, holding hands, singing our song. Time to run, time for some ice cream and a waffle.
Thanks for riding with us today. We always appreciate your company and your comments. Stay safe, wash your hands and wear your mask. Till tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her two intrepid travelers. 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 never been before.
See you on down the road!
