Southward Bound

Aah, the sweet smell of freedom.  It’s “on the road again, we just can’t wait to get on the road again”.  The Wandering America express will be heading southward bound this very morning.  But, it was sort of hard to say good bye to Thurman and Phyllis as well as all the good new friends that we’ve made at the Amazon Fulfillment and Spa Center here in beautiful downtown Campbellsville.  But, we’re sure we’ll be seeing them again as we all continue to roam about the county in this RV lifestyle.

Now another new chapter is beginning.  In 2012 I will turn Medicare, in 2013 my young bride will turn Social Security.  One or two more workamping stints and our finances should (emphasis on the word should) be pretty well set.  So, we are now turning our thoughts to life at Rainbow Plantation and future travels. 

But not so fast Maverick, first we have to do some maintenance to the rig once we get “home”.  The leveling jacks need to be overhauled, the furnace has decided to quit working so it will need repair, and the toilet has quit holding water which means a gasket change out.  I’m sure some other things will crop up, but these are all minor and part of home ownership whether it sets on wheels or concrete.  “Stuff Happens!”

Anyhow, it’s farewell to Heartland Gravel Pit-Parking Lot-RV Resort, the Amazon Fulfillment and Spa Center, Beautiful Downtown Campbellsville, and it’s onto Murfreesboro with a Grand kid fix on the horizon.  Before the sun sets today we’ll be hugging our grand babies.  So, let’s “head ‘em up, roll ‘em out!”

“Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again”

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - - - 


  1. Darrell,

    You might try a stopgap measure before replacing toilet gaskets. Mine stops holding occasionally and I have had good success just smearing vaseline around the flush seal. Last time was about three or four months ago and still holding.
