10/21/14 Tuesday in Advance, NC (Forest Lake-TT)
I slept in this morning, then we got talking to our neighbors who love sitting by their fire early on a very cold morning (in the 40’s). They are truckers (all men gathered), some of whom have been to Washington. Anyway, we mentioned that we needed a really level site. They noted a nice long pull through site that someone had just vacated this morning.
We went back to Miss Zanzibar, ate breakfast, then walked to the office to ask about being able to leave the rig for 2 nights while we attend my niece’s wedding. They said fine, as long as it was just for that and that we were letting them know. Knowing now that we wouldn’t have to put our RV into storage for those 2 nights, we wanted to move to a more level site.
We checked out the one near our fire lovers and another by the lake; the lake site won. It wasn’t perfectly level, similar issues to our other site, but we now have both slides out, FHU, great/strong 50 amp power ($3/night), face North, with lovely lake views. This campground is really nice; very friendly staff and campers, clean bathrooms, gorgeous pools (yes, one for adults and another for families), even 2 hot tubs. Lots of critters: birds, squirrels, ducks. Some of the roads have bad potholes and rough gravel, others are asphalt. They have lots of trees so few satellite sites and more short than long sites.
Then I got my light housecleaning done. Believe it or not, it was lunch time already. In the afternoon I worked on the blog and caught up on Internet research (RV dealers, things to do/see, route to next destination). The perfect relaxing day. I’d set my chair out under the shade of a tree by the lake but never managed to get there. Even though it was pretty cold this morning, the sun brought wonderful warmth (low 70’s) later.
Nothing special for our evening except adjusting to no DVR. John watched “Person of Interest” in the bedroom while I watched “Frontline” in the living room.
