3/28/14 Friday Arley, AL (Hidden Cove-TT/MA)
Rain and wind last night, with more rain until noon.
John watched TV while I got caught up on emails all morning. In the afternoon we went to the fine town of Arley for our mail and to make our phone calls. Funny how we have all the WiFi we’d like right in our RV yet can’t make phone calls. So emails are an easier way to communicate than the phone. Just one more example of needing to be flexible. We also discovered we can order a ladder (Telestep or Extend and Climb) to use for washing our rig through Amazon. By having Prime (just joined) we can have it delivered in 2 days which is a huge help when you are moving your home every week or so. John may actually have to wash the rig for the first time since last August. We also looked into flying to Portland to visit one son, then to Spokane to visit our other son and get our medical visits accomplished then fly back to Philadelphia so we could drive to Hershey PA where our RV would be stored. It looks really expensive as well as stressful so we’ve decided to wait for now. By August 2015 we hope to find ourselves close enough to home to accomplish all these things and do it every year in the summer from then on. It seems so much more efficient to stay on the East Coast one more year to cover those states we haven’t visited yet, then head for the West Coast for the rest of our travels by RV.
When we got home we thought it best to take off on our walk before getting settled into our very comfortable seats. Of course we wandered over to where our new friends Richard and Jo Anne are. Naturally we got into a great time sharing – she paints watercolor too and he plays the piano and guitar. Lots of RV stories. Then it was time to head home for supper. Our evening entertainment was NCAA basketball. Still good even if Gonzaga is out of the running.
