Summerdale, AL and now taking a day of rest

We left Jennings, LA this morning in bright sunshine and headed east, fully expecting to run into some showers.  However, we traveled all day going east and the storm front stayed ahead of us.  From the news reports, I'm happy we didn't drive into it.

We planned to stop at the Walmart north of Biloxi, MS this afternoon.  However, when we got there the parking lot was nearly full, similar to the pre-Christmas rush.   We walked the entire lot and decided that the only place to park would have been next to the road, which was where we were 3 years ago. It was noisy then and probably not any better today.  So we pressed on.

Our next parking option was the Walmart at Daphne, AL where we were also going to fuel up.  That parking lot was only about a third full with lots of space available.  BUT there were signs on several posts of: "No truck or trailer Parking".  Perhaps we should have visited the store, but we decided to just leave and go to the SKP park (15 miles) at Summerdale at $5 a night for Boondocking.  When I finally got into the motorhome, Sandy's comment was "only if I get electric tonight".   So much for being cheap.  However, when we arrived at the park, she insisted that we get a "dry camping" spot.

So here we are settled in, living on battery and our trusty inverter.  We watched the evening news plus Sandy got her "Wheel of Fortune" fix.  Now we're both surfing.

The old farmer's advice:   The biggest trouble maker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'
