We got rolled this morning. The trip with the Castle was a long and arduous one. The roads were narrow and slow going but we made the run in about eight minutes. Our distance was close to one thousand one hundred and forty six feet.

The new nest for the Teams is right across the street from the campground office. It is a much bigger site as in over six times as big according to the measuring tape. Here is a picture of the site from the office porch.

This puts us really close to the laundry which makes the OFM really happy. It is still standard eastern crowded camp sites. Here is the site from the edge of the campground road.

A good point is the area lighting pole is immediately behind the Castle so the OFM can use the site and picnic table at night without needing a flashlight. We like that.

The bad part of the move is the heat and humidity. The OFM had to cut the morning walk short when he began to feel an uneasy stomach.  Then came the pack up and move couple of hours. Others in the area were also noticing the extreme heat index due to the humidity. The actual temperature was in the upper 80s but the heat index was in the really high 90s. We think that the main problem was the total absence of any breeze.

The long nap this afternoon in the AC was a wonderful event and was a perfect way of trying to have tooooo much fun on a day like today.
