The RV Road Trip Blog - September 2009
We're trying to pick a spot to go so we can see the leaves on the trees in their full fall glory but it's a hard decision. Cheaha State Park? Little River Canyon? Pine Mountain, Georgia? Arrggghhh.... :)
They have quite a few spots for RVs, a nice pool, an archery range, a general store and cabin rentals. There's also a woodworking shop that has some very neat items in it. Since it was Labor Day weekend when we were here, it was quite busy. Lots of campers, people playing horseshoes, croquet and various other games. There are no full hookup sites but they do have a dump station. Most sites have water and electricity and they have a number of boondocking sites, no hookups at all.
There's not a lot to do outside of the park but there is enough to do at the park to satisfy a weekend of fun. The nearest town is Montevallo and they have anything you might need in case you forgot to pack something. We took a lot of pictures to show how nice the park is and you can view them by clicking here.
An update on our son, Robby. He has decided to attend the University of Alabama instead of Auburn to study chemical engineering. Two things influenced his decision, Alabama sent him acceptance letters almost immediately and we have yet to hear from Auburn. The other is the proximity of Tuscaloosa to family. Either school is a good choice, but the prompt acceptance by the University of Alabama and the U of A School of Engineering made a huge difference. Now begins all the filing of paperwork for grants, scholarships, etc.
Now that it finally quit raining, I was able to get to work on the solar installation again. The dadgum panel mounts still aren't in but they are expected in 2 days. In any case, I wired up the inverter, charge controller and the remote display so all that is functional. The only downside is that without solar panels, no charging takes place - LOL. Oh well, they'll be in soon enough and then I get to drill holes in the roof of the camper! Yippee. Not. - If you click the solar link in the RVer's Library, you can read up on all that I have done so far.
