Today began as a cloudy day and got worse before it got better. Starting just before noon a line of storms started to pass through the area. They dumped a lot of water in a short period of time. By 3PM the sun was starting to burn through the clouds. It was sunny and dry before nightfall.
Tomorrow I’m moving on, so today I had a few errands to accomplish. First up was a visit to my mail service to pick up my accumulated mail. The packet of mail included my new registrations for the motorhome and car. I’d completed the transaction by internet and mail earlier in the month, but I needed the paperwork and sticker for the plate. I know have the proof that the vehicles legally registered. It is always easier to stop at the mail service to pick up the accumulated mail when I’m in the area. Finding post offices that accept General Delivery or another place to receive a package can be a challenge.
The second stop of the day was a Walmart. I needed to buy a new sewer hose. My current hose has developed a small leak in the middle of the fifteen foot “stinky slinky”. It seems like they only last a couple of years before something like a bird puts a hole in the plastic or the UV from the sun makes it brittle enough to break. I bought a cheaper lower grade hose this time around. I’m going to try to make the punctured hose into two smaller hoses.
I took the opportunity to stock up on groceries while at Walmart. This store was well stocked. It even had paper goods and cleaning supplies. There were a few gaps on the shelves, but nowhere near as many as I’ve seen at other Walmarts. They were also actively cleaning areas of the store. I saw four different teams cleaning displays, other cases and the floor in several areas of the store.
In the morning I’m packing up and moving inland. My next stop is for the period through the holiday weekend. I’m not sure of the quality of the campground or the things to do in the area, but it had openings over the holiday weekend. The reviews online were OK. I’m never sure how much to believe when reading reviews.
