'12/#53 One More For The Road

I know I said that I probably wouldn't blog again before we left Kentucky but here I am. Today was our half day at Amazon and with plans for the rest of the day I didn't think there would be time. It seems we have just become so efficient we didn't notice. All the outside hook-ups are put away, except for the power cord. Laundry is done and we got the grocery shopping done, all in record time. We treated ourselves to lunch and went home to work on the inside. Laundry was put away, the bed made, and the few Christmas decorations we had up were stowed. Pots and pans, dishes, silverware, coffee pot, and pantry have been stowed for travel. We are ready!

Tomorrow we will get up early since we have gotten used to it working at Amazon. My big concern is the power cord at that hour. The temps are forecast to be in the low 20's. A 50 amp power cord is awkward to roll up under the best circumstances but at those temperatures is will be like trying to roll up a 40' 2x4. We may just shove it into the back of the trailer or the back seat of the truck and roll it up when it warms up. I don't care, we are leaving Kentucky and headed to Florida! Soon we will not be waking up to freezing temperatures. Even better we will be with family and friends and have a belated Christmas celebration.

We are treating ourselves to dinner out tonight since everything is cleaned and put away. The slides will be brought in tonight so we will have one less thing to do in the morning. 5am comes around early but we will be ready. We will stow the power cord, hook up the truck, check the lights and be on our way. We will stop later for breakfast and continue our trek southward. I hope to stop for the night sometime after the temperature is above 60 degrees. I was hoping for 70 degrees but everyone is telling me about some damn cold front. Darn! We are tired of the cold if you haven't figured that out yet.

Well it is time to get ready for dinner. We will make it an early night with visions of palm trees and beaches dancing in our heads. So this is so long for the last time from our home in Campbellsville Kentucky because.....

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary
