Home again Home again jiggety jig

    I went to bed at 8:30 last night.  I was tired.  I woke up at 1pm and  then Dare woke me up at 3 to go out.  I tried to go back to sleep until 4:30but I don't think I did.  Anyway at o dark thirty I was up and ready to roll.  I emptied all the water except in the water heater out of the trailer, drained the grey and black water tanks and let the dogs out to pee and got on the road.  There is not much traffic in DC at 5am . We cruised thru DC and Baltimore and even the NJ turnpike and then the damn GPS took over again and even though I was headed to the Tappan Zee it turned me around and sent me thru  the middle of Newark and back to the Friggin GW bridge.  I was so pissed at it. At least it wasnt' too backed up this time.
     I got home at 1:30 and Tim came over and helped me back it up the driveway and unhook and winterize the whole thing.  All done and ready for the storm tonight. Tim is the guy who plows my driveway and is my landscaper too. He lives close by and is a real gem.  He also noticed that the vent in the roof was askew and I would have had snow in the camper big time.  He got on the roof and put it back in place.  What a relief, I thought I as going to have to take it to the dealers this afternoon and frankly I'm just too pooped to pop.
     I was going to go out and get milk, supplies and dinner, but screw it, I won't starve.
     All in all the trip was fun, a great learning experience and I will have to think twice about going to Fla in Jan next year.  Maybe winter camping is not for me.   I'm so happy to be warm and I am going to go take a long,  truly hot shower and go to bed very early in my own lovely bed.
     Thanks for reading and all your comments.  I like knowing someone was reading.


  1. Welcome home! You deserve a warm cozy bed after the trip you've been on!

  2. Yay your home we missed you, I'll sleep better tonight knowing you are safe and sound in your bed. Wish I had thought to get you some milk and stuff. Can't wait for you to see Tru she has grown and is so leggy.

  3. Woohoo, congrats on a job well done getting home! I'm sure you enjoyed your sleep and seeing your farm again.
