Day One on the Road – Leaving Georgia

After two and half months of sitting still we are finally on the move.  We are on the way to Texas for our big move.  The morning started off smoothly.  We got the coach ready to go.  Our cat, Black Lightening decided she was not having it.  She jumped behind the jackknife couch and would not come out.  After that 40-minute adventure getting her out from under that couch and putting her in her carrier we were finally off.

Edonna decided to tow the car out of Atlanta.  We had discussed me chasing her until we got out of Atlanta traffic.  She did a wonderful job.  Lucky for us the traffic was light.  We both relaxed after we got past Douglasville, GA.  We planned that we would not drive more than four hours per day.  This is our life.  We don’t have to move fast.  We want to create experiences and not just drive on the highway.

We drove a little longer today because of the change of time zones.  Edonna was feeling good so we kept going.  We stopped right outside of Tuscaloosa, AL at Sunset RV Park.  We will stay overnight.  This is a cool park.  There is an east and west section.  We are in the west section.  This is a great place for an overnight.  We are on a concrete pad. It was a pull through spot.  Score!  Pull through spots are a way to any RVer’s heart.  The pad was completely level.  I did not have to add any leveling blocks.  This made set up a breeze; which was good because an afternoon summer storm was brewing as we were setting up.

Since we are staying overnight we only hooked up water, electric and cable.  We decided to forgo sewer since we dumped all our tanks this morning.  We will not take on enough water to dump before we leave in the morning.  This park has wifi but we could not access it.  It was spotty at best.  I am not sure how close we are to the router.  I was too tired to figure out where it was.  It is not a deal breaker since we are only staying the night.

There is shopping and restaurants about 3 miles down the road.  I cooked last night so we just needed to reheat for this evening.  I think the best part of living in a RV is that I have all my stuff with me.  I can eat my own food and sleep in my own bed wherever we go.  All in all, today was a success.

Lesson learned today:   There is a button near the cable wire by the TV that needs to be out when accessing cable.  We watched TV over the air when were in Mountain Park.  Not one person has ever told us this in all the tutorials we have had on our coach.  There are many moving parts on a RV. Each day I try to learn and become fully competent on that system.
