Thursday April 12, 2012-Moving day-Caddo Lake NWR to Bill and Ornell Sims house

The day we have anticipating has arrived. Since we didn't get anything done yesterday to prepare for moving, we had to get a pretty early start. I went down and opened the gates for the last time about 6:30 and came back home, intending to get started early but went back to sleep in my chair. Imagine that! Stella woke about 7:30 and we after a quick bite of breakfast, we began working a little after 8. Jason came by to tell us goodbye, which was nice of him. I drove down to put our trash in the dumpster, intending to tell Josh goodbye, but forgot that he took off on a weekend vacation and was gone.

The pack-up went well and by about 10 we were ready to go.

Stella drove the Tahoe back to the office and dropped the keys in Gary's office. While there, she met up with Mark and he walked her out to tell me goodbye. The employees here are so nice!

The trip to Bill's house went well with no problems. We took a break in Carthage at a truck stop but were there longer than I wanted to be. Oh well, we're not in a hurry. We made it to Bill's a little after 3 or just about right on time. I had told him that we'd be there between 2:30 and 3, and if we hadn't stayed longer at the truck stop, would have made it.

We got all set up without incident except that the satellite dish wouldn't lock in. I'll have to work on it tomorrow, I was too tired to fool with it any more today. We tuned in to the local channels, so we had TV to watch. It's good to be back at our friend's home for a few days.

So long.
