11/14/14 Friday in Woodbine, GA (Walkabout Camp and RV Park-RPI)
On our way by 9 am, just as John had planned. I’d called Monaco a few days ago asking what terrible things would happen if we put the slide in with the jacks down. The technician used to be on the team that built our rigs at the point where they put the slides into the frame. He said since they had the chassis on a railroad bed as they did that they felt it would work best if the RV was “road ready” whenever the slides were moved. He also noted that they also moved the slides in/out when the jacks were down. Finally he noted that the couldn’t see any kind of harm happening if we moved our slides when the jacks were down. So today we did just that. They seemed to move smoothly, with less “struggle”, so that was nice. Our door is still working nicely and our wet carpet is dryer. I’ll give it more fan time when we’re parked.
We just traveled South on I-95 today, a breeze. Here I-95 is pretty heavily used, rather worn and rather rough in places. Hello Georgia! The Interstate was better here, even got to 6 and 8 lanes sometimes. Great, very spacious rest area with lots of slots for trucks/RVs. We even saw a fifth wheel with a slide out, as well as a RV dump station there.
Not too long before we arrived we saw a coyote running along the forest line beside I-95. Beautiful, kind of multicolored brown.
It sure was nice arriving at 11:30, actually getting our lunch before 12:30. This is a great campground from our perspective. Wide open (thus not the best for our friends who like to burrow in the woods), so satellite with FHU, flat roads and flat pull through spaces. Plus FREE WIFI and 4G Verizon reception. They do choose your site, but they are not all that different. It’s basically a grassy field filled with campers. I have to admit the WIFI does drop off periodically, but hey, it’s free.
I got wash started, then lunch, then off to Costco to get the nitrogen checked in our CRV tires and some groceries we usually get at Costco. That was a long trip, about 1 hour.
Got home with some time to relax before our fish supper. Sure didn’t take any naps after today’s trip!!
