“Happiness is having a scratch for every itch.”
It all started on Friday morning with my statement to Diana: “I have a bad case of hitch itch.” For those of you outside the RV circles, that is when an RVer has had enough of the location they are in. The urge comes over you to hitch up and head out. After a little discussion, I was going all out at removing the skirting. We had decided to make a run to Florida for a couple of weeks to get a change of scenery!
Kayaks on the truck, fresh tires on the trailer and we set a target of Tuesday morning for launch. With a half hour to spare, we made it! It was a good thing, as the temperatures had begun to dip back down. Tuesday morning, the thermometer read 22 degrees. We really noticed the difference in the rig without the skirting, both in floor comfort and in propane usage.
As you can see in the photo above, the snow piles in Grand Rapids had dwindled to hardly anything. As we drove south, we encountered the remnants of the storm that dumped 6 inches of snow on Chicago the other day. While the roads were dry, we didn’t escape the white landscape until Indianapolis.
Tonight, we are at Woods and Waters campground in Columbus, Indiana. This campground is open year round. It’s somewhat cloudy, and it is supposed to warm up and rain overnight. Rain: what a concept. I believe we saw something they called rain back in October. We will take it! 🙂
So, exploRVistas is on the road…even if it is just for a short getaway. Stay tuned for updates as we move along.
Itch is officially scratched! 🙂
