On the Road Again

Ughhh .. we were up early and that is not good for me.  I did not want to get out of my warm bed, esp since this cold weather doesn’t have me sleeping very good and is killing my back and legs.  Being the good sport that I am (year right) we were up early this morning and finishing up the last minute things before hitting the road.  Poor hubby was outside this morning in the freezing cold.  He had to unhook the satellite dish, put up the front jacks (we were already hooked to the truck) and unhook our electrical cord and hook the cord into the truck for lights.


First on the list today was to be at the RV Repair shop to get the 2nd recall on our Dometic fridge fire safety recall.  NO i didn’t take any pictures because it’s only 35 degrees!  I stayed inside our nice warm truck with the dogs … hehe


We were there before our 8 AM appointment and they got us in right away.  By 8.40 AM we were on the road heading toward Illinois.  YES .. we are silly for heading to even colder temps.  That temporary insanity has left me and i keep wondering what in the world are we doing.  I was laying in bed last night and i told hubby we should skip Illinois and head south now .. it’s just too cold for me. 


We stopped not long after being on the road for a potty break and man is it ever cold!  The dogs are looking at us like .. hey your going the wrong way silly .. were ready for warmer temps not colder.


We crossed the bridge and as we were doing so we crossed the Illinois state line .. Were back in our home state and closer to our precious grandkids.


275 Miles of traveling fighting a strong wind that weaved us from side to side we finally arrived at the campground around 2.30 PM and got nestled in on a cold winter day.  We only have the electric and sewer hooked up, showers and potty flushing will be ran off of our fresh water tank since it’s so cold and the water is turned off.  We will be carrying water in jugs for cooking and dishes.  We are kind of dry camping.


The dogs were excited as they were at a familiar place and they all had to run to their favorite potty spot.  It was cute to watch and then they couldn’t wait to get inside to get warm. 

After getting all setup it was time to head to get some propane (were going to need the furnace) Wal-mart for the Grandkids favorite junk food and we filled up with diesel.  Ughhh .. Diesel jumped from $3.64 to $3.89 that we paid yesterday in Springfield, MO to today’s price of $3.99 .. ouch!!


I made Chili for dinner last night and were having left over's tonight.  Chili on a cold winter night.  Tomorrow the grandkids will be here to spend the night.  Yeppieeeee


The rest of the night is going to be spent snuggled up in a blanket next to the heater and watching Hallmark .. they have started their Christmas show .. Yeppie i love them.

Stay warm and until next time …
