Up On The Roof...



In James Taylor fashion I went up on the roof today....not to pick off the moss (although that would have applied if I'd been on the neighbor's rig) but rather to wax the top of our rig. Here are some views from up there....




While I was doing that, Linda took the pooches to the rig washing area to give them a bath. Of course Boomer "volunteered" to be the first victim, while Schroeder went to the end of the leash, hoping Linda would forget that he needed a turn. He hates water ! When Boomer wades through water puddles....Schroder will walk around them. They are complete opposites as far as water goes.

Upon returning the the site, Linda raked up all the leaves and pine needles around our site. It looks great and was tough, hard work; since it was in the high 70's today.

She called some campgrounds and found a site for us at the campground I had sent an e-mail to last night but was told they were full. Seems the trick is that she just needed to tell them that she was a nurse, coming in to work at the hosptal. They keep some sites available for nurses that are coming to work at area hospitals. Our lucky day !! So, now we're just waiting for the paperwork to arrive first of the week so Linda can get it completed and returned. Our goal is to get all of her stuff done in time for her to go to the March 20 orientation at St. Francis, in Monroe, LA. So...we will stay here till early March and then start to make our way towards Monroe. Figure we'll make some stops on the way (Escapee park in Summerdale, AL for a few days)and then arrive at the campground, in Monroe, by mid-March. That will give us enough time to get settled...get familiar with the area..before she starts work on the 20th. We have a few more things to do to the rig before we head out. According to typical weather stats, this time of year is the rainiest for Louisiana so we want to get some exterior work done here where it's sunny and dry. :)

I, too, need to do some maintenance before I leave here. Sounds like we might, just might, cross paths along the way. My travel dates are March 1-5 and I'm planning to stop at Escapees in Livingston. Other than that, I don't know. We'll need to coordinate.
