Fall Bench


Got Rolled Sort of


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al

Adventure Date: 12-28-2022

Yep we got rolled today but not enough to get excited about. Today was the swap day for one night on our site with the one next door. So we got rolled alright, about 75 feet at the most. In this next pic is the site where we have been since we arrived July 7. This afternoon the OFM found out how out of practice he was at handling backward trailer maneuvering in tight situations. We figure there were some hysterical on lookers some where around here.

But he did get the rig into the spot without any damage even if it did take him three tries. The good news is tomorrow morning we get to move back to our old spot and the govmnt agency will be ecstatic for 179 more days.

Around 1530 we had the window open in the Castle enjoying the 60F breeze when the OFM realized we could go for a walk in this nice weather. So we did. We walked out the back gate and down to the river walk trail. It was wonderful.

We meandered along the trail gently because the OFM knees were grouchy this evening so right after this picture of the nice fall trail we cut back toward the Castle.

The walk back behind the soccer field was very nice. The knee joints were the only hold back and that was expected.

Back at the Castle we found a message from the OFM son that he had just had another Covid bad test so we will hopefully talk tonight and see what the plan needs to be now.

Seems like this year it has been on trouble mess after another trying to sink this ship. But the troubles have all failed and now we are looking at some more exciting trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Yup. Sounds like one thing after another....but so far, so good. Or, we hope, good. Hang in there. You have a good place to walk, as long as the weather allows. (So do I...I just need to get off my duff and get back with it. Like you, I had a fall. Unlike you, mine was a lot easier, and only a month ago. Just a jammed up rib cage. It's better now. I sure didn't smash my eye!) Nice photos....always nice to have a view of water.

    1. this last few months has seemed like one thing AND another all too often, However none were life or death serious so I am still a lucky fellow.

  2. Hopefully soon the OFM's son will test negative so the OFM can start rolling to adventures that will bring tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Your blog seems to indicate you are closing in on traveling time again, Good luck.

  3. We are in our new home and I love it; but I am still nostalgic for RVing.
    take care
