Places We Have Called Home In 2020

Home Is Where We Park It:  Fairview Riverside State Park, Louisiana

August 13, 2020

Temperature 79 Degrees

From Bad to Worse

Views Around The Park 

What’s the old saying If it is going to go wrong then it is going to go wrong.

It sure applies to us.  Today around noon time the thunder began to boom and shortly thereafter it began to pour.  It came down so hard you couldn’t even see your hand in front of your face.

It was about that time that Barbara said What is that funny noise in the bathroom?  That funny noise turned out to be water coming in through our bathroom light.  I purposely made sure several months ago that everything on the roof had been re-caulked.  So what in the world was going on?   Unfortunately, until it stops raining I can’t get up on the roof to check it out.  And the rain is not supposed to stop for at least three days.  Hopefully, I’ll get a break in the weather early tomorrow, all I will need is 30 minutes.

Then I put the awning out a few inches to keep the rain off the slide since there is no slide topper.  Out it went without an issue.  Thirty minutes later I looked and it was back in.  Now what was going on?  I have no idea how it got in.  Furthermore, it now no longer works.

Wait it gets better.  Barbara went to take her favorite glass bowl out to mix something for lunch.  Yup, it slipped out of her hands and shattered in a million pieces when it hit the floor.

2020 can not be over soon enough.

OK, on another note following are some picture of this gem of a park.

All sites are back in and paved.  None are FHU.

Such beautiful green grass.

The trees are really tall.  That is what makes getting a DISH signal so difficult.  We were able to hook on to two satellites but not the third.

From what I understand most sites will be occupied this weekend.

Then there is this.

With a brand new window awning on the back window!

I can’t believe that this even runs.  Just think of everything that would fall off when it hits the first good bump in the road.  I really have to do a bit more investigating and find out what the story is behind this rig.

Here we are.  Yes, it is tight quarters.  Just enough room for Elvira and Little Graybeard.  By the way, we’ll be staying here since the sites we asked about will all be occupied this weekend.

Another day is in the books on The Road of Retirement.  If we have many more days like this I’m literally going to pull what little hair I have completely out.  Yes, I know that days and times like this go along with the full time RV life style.  I guess we’re just so spoiled because until now our life has been relatively incident free.  We’ll get through this and we’ll get everything sorted out.  It is just going to take some time.  I’ll say it again we are two of the most blessed and fortunate people on the face of the planet.

Thanks for your company.  We always appreciate when you stop by and we so enjoy your comments.  Catch you 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!

  1. The campground looks nice. Love the tall trees. Hope you find the water leak and figure out what’s going on with the awning. Oh, the joys of owning an RV. But all in all, there is no better way to travel.
