We left Jamestown, TN by 10:30 on Friday morning. That's an early start for us...LOL! It was cold but it was going to get a LOT colder, with a chance of snow. Definitely time to leave...
We had an easy day of driving, we were only going to Carterville, GA where the KOA there awaited us. This is the third time we've stayed at this park. We rarely stay at KOAs due to the cost but this one is convenient to family in the north part of Atlanta.
We got settled in and then headed out to Kani House in Woodstock for dinner with my youngest daughter, her husband and kids. Stu was feeling a little iffy, but nothing serious. We had a nice dinner, enjoyed the grandkids and headed back to the rig.
Stu had a bit of a tummy ache that had been going off and on for a couple of days. Stu felt worse and headed to bed by 10:00. I stayed up for a couple more hours. By 2:30 am we were heading to the ER at Northside Hospital. The stomach pain had gotten worse to the point that he felt it needed to be checked out.
Northside Hospital ER impressed us both...they took him right in and it was another 20 minutes before anyone took registration information (other than basic ID stuff needed initially). Long story short, he was sent home with two prescriptions and told to come back if the the pain worsened or if he didn't feel better within 48 hours. The blood work and xrays showed nothing so the doctor suspected it was a general GI thing...the stuff that goes around this time of year.
We had planned to leave on Sunday after breakfast with my daughter...based upon Stu's not feeling well, we extended till Monday. Saturday was a veg day...I had less than two hours sleep and Stu made up for both of us. LOL! Sunday we went out to dinner with my daughter, rather than breakfast. Stu was feeling much better, fortunately.
We got packed up this morning and hit the road well before noon. We planned a short day, hoping to make Unadilla, GA for the night. We stopped at Camping World in Byron, GA and ordered a replacement microwave dish as well as picking up a few other items.
We're at Southern Trails Resort in Unadilla. We've stayed here a couple of times, discounted rate for Escapees. With the weather being so cold, forecast for low 20's even as far south as central FL, we decided to look for an RV park further south than Bushnell, our original destination.
We found another park under new management...as Maple Hill RV Campground was, back in Jamestown, TN. The park used to be Robin's Nest but now is called M RV Resort. It's in Moore Haven, FL and the temperatures are running 10 degrees warmer night and day compared to Bushnell.
I've never stayed around this area...close to Lake Okeechobee...it should be interesting. Factor in a rate of under $6 a day (plus taxes & electric), and it should be fun! Totally different riding area for us, too.
Tomorrow we have to stop and pick up some parts to repair our electric cord and then we plan to stay around Ocala, FL for the night. We should arrive in Moore Haven on Wednesday. I can't wait to get a haircut and Sadie needs her final shots, including Rabies. Stu has a long list of little maintenance type things to tackle and I have a long list of books I want to tackle. LOL!
So nothing really exciting...Stu feels 100% better and that's the best news I can pass along!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
