Saturday August 15th 2020
For a change the day began with a clear blue sky and lots of sun. It remained sunny all day. The humidity was a little bit lower because of a north wind. It was hot, but not unbearable.
This is my last full day on the banks of the Mississippi River. The barge traffic was not as heavy today. There was still enough traffic to keep me interested. I’ve really enjoyed my stay here. I’m sure I’ll return in the future.
I took advantage of the free machines and got another round of laundry completed today. A few of the less frequently washed items got their turn in the suds. Last night I thought I missed my opportunity because of all the people in the RV park. I assumed they were here for the weekend and would be competing for the machines. I was wrong again. Very few of last nights residents stayed. Even the families with young kids packed up and moved on this morning. The park is nearly full again this evening.
Tomorrow I’m moving on to the middle of Tennessee for a night. Monday I’ll continue southeast to the middle of Georgia for another single night. I’ll probably head for the Georgia coast from there before slowing down, but continuing straight south is possible. I’m heading for familiar territory where I know my camping and touring options.
