Friday April 27, 2012-Gulf State Park-Alamissibamasippi rally

Friday morning was another nice one with cool temps until the sun came up over the trees. I went over to Bill and Ornell's place this morning to drink coffee with Bill and plan our day. While there, he offered me some scrambled eggs with sausage on a tortilla, so I got breakfast out of the way too. There were some seminars scheduled for today but Bill, David and I decided not to go to either of them. One was on maintenance of trailer wheel bearings and brakes, but I didn't want to go because we typically stay in parks or resorts that don't allow this type of work to be done there. I know the basics of packing wheel bearings, but since I will have someone with a shop do the work, there was no need to go to the seminar. The second seminar was on boondocking, or staying someplace without any hookups and we simply never do this. To us, boondocking means staying somewhere with on 50 amp electric service so we can only run one air conditioner!

We went to the grocery store with Bill and Ornell and went to a Wal Mart Market. This was our first time to go to one of these. They have about the same selection of groceries as a Super Wal Mart, but that is all they sell. No hardware, sporting goods or housewares found here! It was different but I still prefer a regular grocery store. We only needed a few items, so it worked out pretty well.

We came back home and started to prepare for the big potluck dinner tonight. There were something like 58 people in attendance at this rally, so there was plenty of food to eat. It was delicious as usual, and everyone seemed to have a great time.

So long.

I've never been to a WalMart Market. I did not know there was such a thing until in were in the Alabama/Mississippi area earlier this year. Love the Gulf Shores area.
