Unexpected events in our personal life, at work and in the economy started a sequence of events that ended up with us becoming a 'Full-Time RVers'.
Truth is - we love it! and enjoy every moment we can.
On the way, we are learning how to make this huge shift and share those experiences with you.
Monday 11/16/2009 - Alabama is long! I can tell you that! Three hundred and seventy three miles. Speaking of that always reminds me the endless argument I have with my friends – Metric vs. Empiric. Do you know how many feet are in these 373 miles, or yards? For someone who came from a ‘Metric Country’ it was always a mystery to me how come the US didn’t convert, but this is a long story, so don’t get me started now!
Friday 11/13/2009 - Still in Will’s creek in Fort Payne. We like this campground and like being in the south. We want to avoid temperature below freezing, so we have to stay in the safety band until February-March, that means we have time, as we are only mid-November.
Sunday 11/8/2009 - We woke up to another sunny Sunday (Isn’t it repeating - Sunny Sun Day?) and started to get ready to go to the state park that was close by. When we choose our campgrounds, we try to choose one that are close to some nature attractions, National Park, State Park or similar, so no wonder that around us there are so many state parks.
Friday 11/6/2009 - Our campground Will’s Creek is located in North Eastern Alabama, and it is very close to Georgia and Tennessee. We have enjoyed the nice weather in the first week, which passed by very fast. One we thing we noticed right away is that many people are speaking a foreign language in this area, I think it is called Southern. I have no clue about this language, and I can’t understand a word. After Faav Dize the Weekend came Y’all.
Tuesday 11/3/2009 - When we planned on ‘going south’, Alabama was kind of the official destination of being in the south. Not sure why – maybe because of the name, or because there is no state south of it, Whatever the reason is – whenever someone ask us – where in the south? – Alabama was the answer. So we were very excited to finally get there and say – Been to ALABAMA.
Thursday 10/29/2009 - We stopped for the night in a hidden campground on the Blue Ridge Parkways, still in VA. It is called 'Middle Creek Campground' in Buchanan, VA. This time we used GPS to navigate to the site and it took us right there. This campground is not in the middle of nowhere, and it is crowded there, it is way to the side. The owner waited for us and opened the store when we arrived. We really did not use much of the facilities there, as early next morning we were on our way again to the Smokies...
