How cool is this?
I am writing to you from the back seat of the RV as Alan drives. Our verizon card “air card” keeps me online most of the time but I just got kicked off as we drove into an area with different cell coverage. So, I’ll compose offline and post later.
I think we are in NC now. Alan got up way too early and we were on the road again just after 4 am, waking in the Walmart parking lot in Roanoke, VA. We’ll both wait to take showers since we are planning to stop at a campground in Savannah this afternoon with hookups and amenities – and the campground listing says it even has an RV car wash. The RV by itself doesn’t fit into most carwashes…and certainly wouldn’t with the boat. Both the van and the boat are filthy with remnants of new york mud and salt.
I don't drive at all when we are trailering the boat. Too big a leap from driving a 21 foot van with a few extra feet for extra tire and bikes (the latter which we left home this time) to this over 50 feet configuration.
It is warming up and the sun is shining.
And I am all set-up back here…with computer, kindle, books, my journal, snacks, etc.
Amazon has a press conference in a few minutes and I – and a lot of folks – am anticipating an announcement of an updated kindle…Back online so …Excuse me while I try to track it down.
Couldn’t find a live-video so I monitored three blogs each with live feed – in the moment-- of each blogger’s impressions and some photographs.
Just as expected, the kindle 2 was released with some great modifications and additions.
Not enough to entice me to update yet, but definitely makes a magical toy even better!
IF you plan to buy a kindle, please use the link on this site (on the right). It won’t cost you any more…or sadly, any less but if you purchase the kindle via this blog link my amazon associates account will be credited and I can order some free reads.
Driving days like this are similar to long plane rides for me. I confess to eating junk food and playing Scramble on facebook. I started purging my overly-long list of “favorite” blogs
The ride is a little bumpy (road turbulence) but I get all three seats and all my stuff.
Got to campground outside Savannah. The carwash is broken! But the showers were good. Sat outdoors overlooking a large pond with ducks and geese.
To explore the city tomorrow.
