Prince William Forest

Okay sports fans, here we are at Prince William Forest in Triangle, Virginia.  No hits, no runs, no errors; in other words, it was an uneventful travel day.  But here’s a picture of the RV on its crutch.  Neat, huh?

It was a little bit of work to level the rig using a bottle jack on one side and the leveling jack on the other, but we accomplished it.  The big question is, “Will we be able to raise the front of the coach high enough to get the truck back under it?”  I had to let all the air out of the air bags to unload it.  I think we’ll manage considering that we have another bottle jack to use if necessary.

Anyway, we arrived and managed to get all set up by two o’clock, however, it was a five hour travel day – a violation of the 4-2-2 Rule (No more than four hours traveling, in by two, and stay for at least two nights).  Once we got everything ready for living, it was onto lupper.  This afternoon’s fair was a homemade garlic sauce chicken pizza with mushrooms and sweet vadalia onions.  Yum, yum.


Then we began gathering some tourist information for our itinerary for Joel and Mary’s visit tomorrow.  There’s the National Museum of the Marine Corps at Quantico and possibly a half hour drive to Fredericksburg.  Time will only tell what the four, eh five (can’t forget grandson Josiah) will decide to do.  Somewhere along the way, eating will be involved – isn’t it always?

Today has the longest daylight hours of the year and tomorrow night will be a “Super Moon”.  So lots of astrological stuff going on this weekend.  Maybe we’ll see a falling star to make a wish upon.  Hope all y’all have a great weekend.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. (I Thessalonians 5:28)

  1. That sucks - considering that you just replaced the front lifters no long ago. Praying that you find super strength to get the lifting done and that you find an low cost high quality solution to the problem.
