The RV Series: Day Two and Three on the Road. Walmart and Nuclear Fusion

We left the kids house in Powell Ohio at 4:30 pm on Sunday the 24th.    It was wonderful to see our grandsons Reid and A.J.    A.J. wanted to stow away.   I promised a grand kid RV trip for next summer.


We drove to Terre Haute Indiana, arriving on the outskirts at around 11 pm.   We decided to stop for the night in a Walmart parking lot.   Apparently this is a “normal” thing that “normal” RV people do.    A new experience for me.

It didn’t take long for us to put the slides out and get settled in for the night.

Side note:    “Settled in for the night” is two different things for OHD and I.   He takes off  his shoes and brushes his teeth.   I need to wash my face, brush my teeth and apply face, eye, neck, hand and foot cream (yes, 5 different creams).  He rolls his eyes constantly but I just smugly think to  myself that someday he won’t be able to roll his eyes because they will be TOO WRINKLED from him not using eye cream.

Back to camping at Walmart….  At 3 am we were awakened by howling wind.  The BBoW was rocking.    OHD was on his  phone checking weather.   At 5 am he entered what I call”Travel Dave” mode (at times I add in other words too, if you know what I mean).

“Gotta beat the storm!”   ” Let’s go, go go!!! ”

If my nightly routine is complicated , my morning routine is a real eye roller.  I resemble a giant wet noodle in the morning.    Weebley wobbley, I need a cup of coffee and a cigarette and I’m meaner than a snake if you speak to me before I have those things.

Travel Dave and Morning Kathy are at opposite ends of the spectrum and should never meet.  The fusion could wipe out everything within miles.

Came real close this morning.  We left quickly with morning Kathy weebley wobbling all over the coach minus her coffee and cigarettes.

I didn’t even have time to take a picture of our home for the evening.   So here is my representation for your viewing pleasure .  If you look closely you can see how weebley wobbley I am and you can see the damn smile on Travel Daves face.


We’re headed west today and hope to get in around 500 miles.    A little rain and wind but we hope to move past the storm or at least the storm on the outside of the coach.

More later, stay tuned…
