My Sister's 65th

We headed up to Cookstown to spend 3 nights in the KOA up there. It's a lovely little KOA but why they feel it necessary to remove the trees when they create a campground I'll never know.

It was my sister's 65th birthday and as we live over an hour's drive from them we decided to take the rig and spend some fun time in it and have my sister and brother-in-law over for dinner.

The Thursday we left home was brutally hot and we had to make the trip with the generator running and both AC's going. Mainly for our dogs and cat but the dash air wouldn't have been enough on that day. It was HOT!!! When we got there it was so disgustingly hot that we didn't venture outside and we only took the dogs out to do 'their thing' and one is fairly older and the other is very hairy so couldn't risk them overheating. Friday morning around 3 AM it started raining and it poured until about 11 AM. But it was good, it was needed. Friday afternoon was not as hot but it was muggy.

Saturday dawned bright and clear and low humidity. It was a perfect day. Turned off the AC, opened the windows and it was beautiful. Put a roast on the BBQ and had a lovely supper. We got some wood and 4 of us sat around the fire pit until about 10:30 when they left for home. It had gotten actually chilly at this point. Opened some windows in the rig and went to bed. It was downright cool in there in the morning but fresh and lovely.

Sunday we packed up and headed for home. Would have like to stay longer, but duties at home were calling. Cleaned the rig up and there she sits in the driveway awaiting our next adventure.
