Wednesday November 7th 2018
Today was a day without travel. After three straight days of travel it is nice to take a day off. It was also a very nice day. The sun shined full most of the day and the temperature reached the low seventies. That’s a very big change from the cool wet weather I left behind in New England.
I spent a very leisurely day dominated by watching television, walking around the RV park and reading. The most ambitious thing I did all day was prepare dinner. I had a pound of ground beef that needed to be used. I wasn’t in the mood for any of the usual ways I prepare it, so I made a meatloaf instead. This was the first time I used the Convection Oven for that purpose. It came out fine. I had a good dinner and have plenty of leftovers for sandwiches in the days to come.
This campground has plenty of long term residents. Most of them seem to be associated with the military at Fort Brag. Last night the transient sites were almost full. Tonight there were only three overnight reservations based on the list on the Welcome Board at the office. Understanding the flow of snowbirds to the south seems to be a real challenge. Why is today a slow day?
Tomorrow I’m back in travel mode and mother nature is back in rain mode. My timing is terrible. It is supposed to start raining tonight with showers tomorrow morning. It sounds like I should drive out of the bad weather as I head south. I have about 280 miles to travel, but it is straight down Interstate 95. It is mostly long straight roads with very few congested areas.
