Our First Thanksgiving in the RV

November 30, 2014

Written by Anna White

We left on the evening of the 26th headed for Florida to visit with my parents. Our plan was to drive about 4 hours give or take and then overnight at a Wal-Mart and finish up the trip on Thursday morning. Dinner somewhere in Alabama ended up taking over an hour at Cracker Barrel due to our incompetent waitress.

When we got up Thursday morning someone had parked right behind the 5th wheel so we could not back up and the fool who parked in front of us thankfully had left a couple of spots. We were parked in the area designated for RVers and were parked in the same row of a couple 18 wheelers, but for whatever reason a couple of car people decided to be funny. We didn’t linger very long in fear that we might get blocked in and who knows how long it would have taken for the people to finally move their vehicles. Lesson learned….always park where you can’t get blocked in.

We spent 4 days in the town of Molino, which is where I grew up. One of my daughters came on Saturday, which give us time to see two of our grandchildren as well. Overall it was a nice trip. On Sunday we finally pulled out around 10 am. Because I still have J-O-B we had to make the full trip back in a day and with it being a holiday weekend traffic was a nightmare on I-65. It ended up taking us until 9:30 pm before we pulled in to the RV resort we would be staying at. We had hoped to be able to stay for several months, but it ended up being we could only stay 2 weeks.
