It was a good day, in many ways. All has gone well with my dad and he was released from the hospital late this afternoon. That meant we had to “pull chocks” and head to his NJ house to spend a week or so to ensure he was back on his feet 100%.
We departed our campground at Naval Weapons Station Earle around noon for a (only) 113 mile drive to his house. The drive was pleasant, due to great weather and light traffic from mid day travel.
The worry I had was his driveway, it is long and narrow, and is located off a very narrow country road. Not only is it a tight turn but I’d have to drive over some of his lawn to swing in. Twice in the past the ground was so wet the Journey started to sink in and I had to abort the attempts to not get stuck.
We unhooked the car and I looked over the ground. Hard to know for sure but it appeared solid. So I told Marti I was going to go for it and use momentum to get in, just in case the wheels started to sink.
Everything went fine, I squeezed the Journey in and had no issues with getting stuck.
I plugged into his household electricity, a 20 amp circuit which will keep the batteries charged and the fridge running. The forecast is for the weather to cool down at night for the next week so not having a/c won’t be a problem.
Hopefully, the ground will still be dry and hard when we pull out later this month.
We’ve had a great time with Anabelle and Elizabeth, Marti got in a lot of loving with them.
It was hard to leave them, but we promised to return soon. How could we leave and not return to see this special little lady and her new sister?
