3/6/15 Friday in Robertsdale, AL (Wilderness RV-RPI ($13/night))
Yesterday the temperature swung from a high of 84 degrees to a low (at suppertime) of 59 degrees. Then, brrr, it was 36 degrees this morning when we got up. We did get to see a lovely “moon rise.”
The jacks took over 8 minutes to retract all the way up. Guess they were cold too. On the road by 8:30, so that was good. Right off the bat our I-pod wasn’t communicating at the dash so we were forced to try the radio. Sooooo much talking. Then found we had Sirius Preview to enjoy. Not all music that we like, but it was better than the regular radio. We used to pay for Sirius but found that we rarely used it because we were so happy with our I-pod. At our first rest area John thought of a solution. He brought his little alarm/I-pod radio up from the bedroom & got it working. Then, voila! As he started the engine our dash I-pod system started working. Go figure. Maybe it was jealous. 🙂 Not very long after, it died again, so we were happy to use John’s radio.
It stayed pretty dang cold on our trip, so we ran the generator and used the heat pumps to warm the rig as we traveled.
Hello Alabama. Where we’re staying is not far from the Gulf Coast, the beautiful warm Gulf of Mexico Coast that has white sand (sugar) beaches.
Excellent, easy trip (all 183 miles were freeway, pretty much), arrived at 11 (Central Time). Of course, on Sunday the time will “Spring Forward”, putting us back on the East Coast Time we’ve been living under for the past couple years! After setting up and lunch we stayed inside our warm RV. Predictions are for freezing temperatures tonight, so after supper John got our water filters inside, detached our city water hose. We are now using the water pump from our fresh water tank. Usually we don’t have any heat on at night but when it gets this cold, our faces get a frozen feeling. Tonight we plan to use our space heater.
