Good thing I had that big cheeseburger for lunch yesterday, I needed all the strength I could muster for an extreme travel day. I had to kick PDD (Paul Dahl Disorder – extremely long distance driving days) into high gear.
Before rolling, I did my usual walk around the Journey, checking to ensure all the basement doors are closed, slides all the way in and leveling jacks all the way up.
I climbed into the driver’s seat and started up the mighty Cat diesel engine. When all the gauges were up into their normal ranges, I set my sights on my destination for today’s drive,
and slipped the Journey’s transmission into…reverse.
Touchdown! The trip is over and I set a new personal travel record…150 feet, all done in reverse! :c)
It is the shortest drive I have ever made to a new campsite. I was tempted to do a quick loop around the state of South Carolina, but I think I’ve spent enough on diesel fuel this year.
We moved from a weekly site to a monthly site which will save us several hundred dollars. We still have a bunch of items to knock off our “To-Do” list, including some medical checkups, get the new awning motor installed and, oh yeah, Christmas.
So in the spirit of the Christmas season, a few cartoons to bring a smile to your face. (Click to enlarge).
