A Near Perfect Travel Day for The Little RV

Yesterday we had a plan.  We had chosen a destination and campground the day before and it was a beautiful, sunny day.  Knowing I didn't have to worry about finding a campsite made the day so much more relaxing for me. 

Heading south toward North Carolina we were about 15 miles into our trip we encountered snow on the ground but the roads were clear and dry.  The scenery was lovely and traffic was light.  I kept wondering if we were going to have snow at the campground when we arrived and just how cold it would be there but just as we crossed the state line the snow disappeared and the temperature rose by 8 - 10 degrees.  Perfect!

We arrived at our campground shortly after.  They were ultra friendly and helpful.  Our site is large and level with lots of grass because we are on the end.  I love the end (usually)!  We set up and got organized.  It was 50 degrees and so nice after all of the cold wet weather we have been in.  

Yesterday was the first day of Hockey and that is a BIG deal around here.  Rob managed to find a match on TV and he settled in to watch.  By the end of the evening we were all relaxed and cozy.  
 Grant was clearly exhausted from such a long travel day.  Sleeping in the back seat of the truck on his doggie hammock is very taxing.

  3. Found your blog through RVSue. I'm not a RVer, but am a avid traveler and love reading RV blogs. I've read yours from the beginning and can't wait to keep up with you along your journey! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and currently on Enbrel, so I know the injection routine well!

    1. Welcome!
      I'm so glad you're reading along. I always wonder if the blog is interesting to readers other than my friends and family so feedback is wonderful. We never RV'd before until last June when we bought this one. It's never too late!

  4. Being a dog is very hard work, just look at Grant. The picture was made even funnier because of that bone just below his mouth. LOL
