Plans for next month

Hard to believe August is here already.

Over the past two weeks we have discussed, in detail, what our next move should be.  Knowing we need to be in Southern California in November, the next three months needed to be scheduled.  There are a lot of variables: weather, holidays, fuel, distance, etc.  One thing is certain, we vacate our current location on August 16.

After a lot of soul searching, the decision was made: stay in the Colorado Springs area for another month.  This isn’t a bad place, there is lots to do and we can wait out the hot weather.  With the decision made, the only thing left to do was find a place to stay.  With the RV park directory (Woodall’s) in hand, we piled into the car and headed for town.

We looked at several places that were closer to town than our current location and finally settled on an RV park near the Garden of the Gods.  After a lot of site selection, we reserved a spot that should work for us.  What a relief knowing where we will be living for the next five weeks!  By the time we were done, it was 2:00 PM.  Wow, the process took most of the day.

Before returning to the coach, we stopped at the Walmart Supercenter for groceries.  This is the same weird Walmart we shopped at last time.  There is just something strange about this particular store.  The customers, employees and store layout is the sort of eclectic mix you would find in a ZZ Top video.  It was sort of like rubbing shoulders with the great unwashed masses.  Very strange experience.

The rest of the day was spent uneventfully at the coach.
