Heading out of Dodge

Cairo, Georgia

Well today, we are finally going to leave the beautiful property that we have loved for the past five years.  At this point, I just want to be finished, stop working and go!  I may have different feelings once we are actually ready to pull out.

We have been so busy getting everything out of the house and garage that we haven't done any preparation of the motor home or cars.  We have been shoving things into the motor home and now I need to put some of them away before we leave.

We’re hoping to get out of town around noon, but we still have one more small load to take to our storage shed.  Thank goodness for that shed.  It’s quite full!  I have to keep reminding myself that even though we have a full storage shed, that we did get rid of a LOT of stuff and that we did the best we could.  We figure we must have had at least 35 garage sales.  Yes, we had a lot of stuff!

We got some very much needed rain last night and may get some more this morning.  I hope it doesn’t delay our trip.

We are planning to go to Stephen Foster Folk Cultural Center State Park, but we haven’t made any reservations.  Depending on how tired we are when we leave and if we run into any problems, we may find some place closer.

See ya down the road!
