Wednesday May 21, 2014-Moving day-Whispering Hills RV Park to Dixie Caverns RV Park, Salem VA

We were up early to get a good start on moving day. Well, I must say that Stella has made a lot of headway on the inside stuff, and I had already dumped the tanks, so that chore was already done. We made good progress and pulled out a bit after 9.

Our traveling companions, Dave and Nancy, had pulled out about 30 minutes before us, traveling to a state park in Tennessee. They just recently realized that the park has only 30 amp electric, no water or sewer at the sites. I hope they like boondocking! 

We made a stop at a Love's Truck Stop for a bit more fuel- we are concerned about driving through the Appalachian Mountains and don't want to run out of fuel. We have decided not to completely fill the big tank since we're not traveling that far between destinations and we don't need to carry the extra weight. The truck stop was very crowded so we decided to go to a less crowded rest stop abut 60 miles away. It was the perfect choice and we had the sandwiches that Stella had made and had a nice relaxing lunch. I even capped a Munzee in the parking lot. We were soon back on the road-freeways most of the way today- and pulled into the Dixie RV Park about 4:15. The park seems okay, with long driveways and decently level sites. The people in the office are friendly and helpful and I soon met our neighbors. The only downside of the park is that they are close together. Our neighbor next door had to roll his awning in so I could drive into ours, but he has room to open it now that we're in place. The place is completely surrounded by trees, so no satellite reception, but they have good cable reception. Time will tell how it works out.

We are both tired from the long day, and I think we'll probably just stay inside tomorrow and rest.

So long.
