RI Here we come!

So yet another adventure awaits us. A surprise 80th birthday party for my mother, and a chance to get back in touch with people we've left behind up in Yankee territory (affectionately coined, of course.) But first, the trip planning!

We'll be ambling north up to North Carolina Tuesday night, after we're done with work. Makes for a long day but there are some advantages to driving at night. We'll be heading for a Cracker Barrel for the night. Next morning, we start our trip to New Jersey. We'll be again staying at another Cracker Barrel.

So you may be asking yourself, why Cracker Barrel? Well, they are very RV friendly. Just let them know you'll be staying overnight. They will let you do it, as long as it doesn't go against local ordinance. So a call would be a good thing to do before you try it. Also, it doesn't hurt to get a good breakfast before you start your driving day! Be warned...we have been startled in the middle of the night by trash dumpster people. THAT is a fun noise at 3 a.m. outside the Airstream window.

OK, after breakfast Thursday, off to Colonial Airstream to get some work done. I'm hoping it won't take more than a couple of hours. Then, to Normandy Farms in Foxboro, MA.

We've been hearing a lot of great things about Normandy Farms. Great location, nice pools (note the plural, there 4 onsite, including 1 indoor heated),and a recreation lodge (indoor pool, double jacuzzi, sauna, arcade, and an adults only loft. Wait. Adults only? Is that weird? Like, an RV swingers club? Eeek. Let's hope not.) Hopefully we'll have some free time to enjoy all the amenities.

24 hours, and we'll be on the road! Woot!

See you on the road!
