A nice Leisurely travel day...

Where are we tonight ?
        Had a good nights rest up early and just lazing around this morning, coffees. Computing and a walkabout Bee's Resort. Have a shower and dump our gray water tank.
a nice stop for $10.00 with full hookups
        No rush today as we only planned 230 miles and not sure where we will stop for the night somewhere around Tallahassee Florida. Just before noon we stopped by a rest area on I-75 and relaxed for lunch, guess what? A turkey sandwich, love turkey.
230 miles today
         We fuelled up at the Flying J Midway Florida and topped up our propane. Could have stayed here but wanted to stop at Camping World two miles down the road. Checked out the store and purchased a new fresh water hose. Our last one (only a year old from Walmart) exploded even with a pressure regulator on it, so we went all out and got one here with a lifetime guarantee, $14.99, not sure who's life time  thou. Would that be mine our the hoses?
        While we are here they have a nice parking lot and we can park for the night free, free is good yes? Well not really free we bought a water hose. Decided why not, it's almost 4 o'clock anyway, (beer 30) besides it was starting to rain! If we wish at 6 o'clock we can move to a spot with electricity and water. How's that for free camping? Our next choice was Walmart down the road but this works fine.
comfy and quiet here
       So got some reading and computing done, set up the tv (bunch of channels on the antenna) and whipped up another turkey dinner, same as last night, actually the same picture, warmed up turkey, potato salad and 4 bean salad (no bun thou).
yummy
        Well that was it for another light travel day, we are at home no matter where we are, and are just enjoying this great lifestyle. The rain? no problem we are parked for the night and its warm out, let it rain. We have tv, our books, the internet and each other, isn't life wonderful?
        Thanks for dropping by and feel free to make a comment, always enjoy those.

  1. Bee's RV sure looks like a nice place. Those lifetime guarantees don't mean much. Can you imagine all the receipts you'd have to keep to prove you bought it where you "think" you bought it? Besides, who knows if the company will still be in business in a year or two.

    1. Bee's is nice, and I did not even keep the receipt this time, if and when it breaks will be time for another any way.

  3. do you have to run your generator when your dry camping or do you have an inverter setup .. if you have an inverter setup what is it as we are planning to do some dry camping this winter and are looking into installing an inverter and more batteries to our home

    1. We have a 1200 watt inverter I hooked up with our two six volt house batteries. And have it hooked up to our front TV, satellite receiver, internet and laptops works great for us. We have a 130 watt solar panel too to keep the batteries charged too when parked for a while in the desert.

  4. So really, you could look at it as spending $14.99 on the site for the night, but you get to keep the hose. Hopefully it lasts longer than the last one. Sometimes "cheap" can be a false economy.

    1. The hose I bought from Walmart last year was not any cheaper so didn't save any money there.

  5. Camping World is a good choice for the night.
