Eclipse Bound and Out

Today is the day we’ve been waiting for. I got up after too little sleep, and started packing the best I could for our eclipse trip. Dad came and picked me up around 10, we went and took Mom some breakfast/lunch, and we headed to Cabot to my Uncle Rick’s.

It was a pretty comfortable ride being able to get up and move around. No telling whether that’s really allowed while the vehicle is in motion, but I live my life a quarter mile at a time. We stopped at Sonic on the way out of town so we could load another vehicle on a tow hitch. When we finished, everyone was hungry, so we stopped to eat in the parking lot. We finally got moving out of town around 1:30.

We had to stop at a Walmart in Dickson because Dad forgot to pack all of the dinner type meats, and we weren’t satisfied with lunch meat for four days. Uncle Rick also thought there might be something wrong with the RV, but ultimately decided we were in the clear, and we finished our journey.

We made it to the campsite next-to-last, with our envelope taped to the front office door. It took us a little bit to get settled into our spot, but we got all the utilities hooked up and the awning pulled out the side. The stall showers here aren’t too bad, though I’m not certain there’s an abundance of hot water. I’m waiting until morning to find out.
