We try not to travel on weekends, period, because many repair services that one could potentially need are unavailable. So how is we we’re not only traveling on a weekend, but a Holiday Weekend?
Sometimes priorities take precedence over smart practices and there are four lovely granddaughters anxiously awaiting our arrival in Missouri for the next month. So the heck with weekend travel, we’re going to push on through.
Of course, a holiday weekend means a scarcity of campgrounds, house bound folks use this opportunity to get moving and enjoy the great outdoors. Unusual for our point-to-point style of travel, this month long trip for us has found us traveling shorter daily distances and making good use of our Passport America membership. We’ve been extremely pleased with the campgrounds we’ve used that have been very nice, while saving us a great deal of money.
Tonight our luck ran our and no campgrounds we looked to stay in had any openings, including an Escapees campground. But we were not deterred and are tucked in for the night at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Tennessee. The management graciously gave us permission and we get to enjoy not only dinner but breakfast, too.
It’s a tough life we lead. :c)
Around five hundred miles left to go, but we’re going to do that over two (maybe three!) days, it’s almost like I’ve been cured of the PDD driving style…
