The Aliner is Home Again

The Aliner is back home

Back from the shop -- where she belongs!

We got the Aliner back from the shop today!  She is home where she belongs!

I can’t believe how much I miss her when she is not here.  I told Ron that I feel like everything is right with my world now that we have her back.  He replied, “It is a sweet little home.”

That’s how I feel about my camper.  It’s an adorable little home that we can take anywhere whenever the mood strikes us.  It feels

like freedom and opportunity to me!

I love where they put the switch for the DSI water heater.  No more standing out in freezing, rainy weather holding the gas button down and waiting for gas to get through the lines so the pilot will light.

That’s a biggie with cold weather coming on.

Batteries are in great shape

If I sound deliriously happy, I am!

Unfortunately we will have to wait until after Ron’s doctor appointment Wednesday to head out camping.  But as soon as he is through with his appointment, we will leave.

I suppose it’s also apparent that I am a Gypsy at heart and would love to fulltime.  Maybe some day!

Rainy Night in Georgia

We had planned to spend a few days fishing at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park after we left Florida.  We arrived at the campground on Thursday, April 8th.

We only make reservations when it’s absolutely essential, preferring to stay flexible about where and when we go.

This was one time it didn’t pay off.  We didn’t realize this was spring break weekend, and every campsite was booked solid Friday through Sunday.

Also, while we were here, our water heater went on the blink.  It would light and stay lit a short while, then would go out, but the propane wouldn’t shut off.  So after relighting it and smelling propane very strongly and having the propane detector go out twice, we finally realized we were’t going to have hot water the rest of this trip.

It’s not a big deal for Ron, as he likes using campground showers.  They are much bigger and the water pressure is better.  But I like showering in the trailer, because it’s cozy, I know it’s clean, and everything I need is in easy reach.  In fact, having a bathroom and shower is the main reason I wanted this model Aliner.

So I took a cat bath with Wet Wipes.

Rained in, we spent the evening reading, surfing, and doing crosswords.

We left fairly early the next morning for home.
