Ready for the Road

Judy and I continued our final preps for our Friday departure from Manatee Springs State Park.  Leaving is a lot of work after sitting for awhile.

Wednesday morning I took the truck over to the park shop and gave it a thorough washing after I took the “blue boy” to the dump station. Once I finished we washed the Cardinal, not an easy task.  Judy managed to back into the “king pin” housing under the fifth wheel overhang. That resulted in a thirty minute “get yourself together” break. We got the bleeding stopped and saw a small cut in her scalp. She is a real trooper.

Comfort Station

Thursday Judy went to the laundromat and got the washing done.  I stayed at the park and cleaned the comfort station for the last time. Judy worked on travel preps inside as I got the “basement” re-stowed for travel. We had many good-bye breaks as park personnel stopped by.  By the end of the day the only thing remaining to do is to disconnect shore power and hitch up. We should be able to be rolling at first light in the morning.

Judy and I relaxed with a pizza and watched some TV for the remainder of the evening.

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Glad to hear no stitches were required! Travel safe.

  2. Ouch! I think George is the king of bumping his head. Good thing he wears a hat most of the time, but sometimes that doesn't even help!
