I am getting cured of PDD (Paul Dahl Disorder – driving too many miles in one day). It is taking some time, but I drove less miles today than yesterday, only 250.
Be careful, I hear you laughing at me, but remember, Rome wasn’t destroyed in a day. ;c)
We departed the Raccoon Valley campground this morning, but as always, before I move the Journey, I do a complete walk around, checking to ensure all basement compartment doors are closed and latched, leveling jacks are up, and looking underneath, up and down at windows, awnings, tires and such so I don’t go driving down the road dragging something, or having something flapping in the breeze.
I also look over my tow bar assembly, checking bolts, cables, links and brackets. I’d hate to have my tow car pass me going down the highway, or arrive at my destination with no car attached.
It poured with rain all day, the wipers got quite a workout.
We often put a meal in our crockpot and let it cook all day while we’re driving. Along with enjoying the wonderful aromas as we drive, we have a piping hot meal ready to chow down on when we call it a day.
Marti whipped up some barbecue chicken wings in the crockpot and it was bubbling up nicely. But the best laid plans of mice and men…
A car on the highway suddenly slowed way down and I had to brake hard, not that it was close as I am careful to leave lots of space between the Journey and vehicles in front. Still, it was a harder than usual stop and…
Bam! Crash! The crockpot overturned in the sink and dumped all the chicken. We lost dinner, but on the bright side, being overturned in the sink, it was not a huge cleanup issue.
Now what to do for dinner? Enter Plan “B”. Since we planned on blacktop boondocking at a Flying J anyway, we availed ourselves of their Denny’s restaurant. It was as usual, hot and mediocre.
Since the RV parking sites are often a little tight and we do like to put out some of the slides, I pulled into a space and left the Element toad slightly canted so anybody pulling up alongside will have to clear the slides. Yet I can stay completely within my parking space lines.
So for tomorrow, it’ll be another rainy day of driving, but maybe I can drive another 10 or so miles less than today. It’s all part of the 12 step program to cure myself of PDD.
We can do it! :c)
