Current Location: Fort Toulouse Campground, Wetumpka, Alabama
Actually, it was rather relaxing already being home on Sunday instead of traveling in and setting up the trailer. We went to church this morning. Neither of us sang in the choir, but instead just sat in the congregation and enjoyed the service. We had Sunday lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse then stopped into Home Depot to look for some cabinet organizer items Val had found on their website. Turns out you have to order them. We left without buying anything.
We headed back to the trailer and changed into more comfortable clothes. We took it easy this afternoon. Malcolm continued to work on documenting his grandparents’ travels on the computer. He did verify (by reading ahead) that they stopped traveling and sold the trailer in 1992 (they started in 1970). Also, Grandma had remarked in early 1992 that they crossed the 200,000 mile mark of pulling an Airstream, so they probably traveled about 205,000 to 210,000 miles over the course of 23 years.
This afternoon, we stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few items including cat litter and cat food to drop off with our son to take to the house. We visited with him at work for a few minutes, then headed over to Academy sporting goods so Malcolm could look at golf clubs. After his first outing with the guys at the rally a couple weeks ago, he decided he needed a better driver and fairway wood than what he scrounged at the thrift shops. He found one of each at a good price ($29 each) as well as a pretty nice putter. Val found a Lodge dutch oven that we’ve been wanting to get.
After shopping, we stopped at Cracker Barrel for salads then headed back to the trailer to do dishes and put stuff away. We loaded laundry in the car for tomorrow and relaxed the rest of the evening. Malcolm’s back to work tomorrow.
