Ranting and Alabama To Georgia

Thomasville, GA.

deg. 71 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning...then mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs around 90. West winds around 5 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent.

I don't believe it!!!!!! 4:40 AM and this idiot is warming up his RV before leaving!!! It ran for at least 15 minutes and the last few minutes were at a high idle!!!! What are these people thinking? Don't they have any consideration at all for the other people in the CG?????  : {

OK! I'm done ranting!!
It was right at 10:00 again when we pulled out of the Deer Run RV Park near Troy, AL. Once back on US 231, and heading South we moved right along until we came to Dothan. Now, don't get me wrong, Dothan us probably a very nice place, but their traffic it horrible!!!

Before you ever get to the belt route that runs all the way around the city, you have many, many traffic lights to deal with. Then as you go around the city on the belt route you have many, many more, as it's not a limited access by-pass route. : ( 

Jim says that it's been that way for years and can't understand why they don't built a real by-pass around the city.

Once past Dothan, and heading East on US 84 we started making some pretty good time again. In fact, it didn't seem to take long at all until we were crossing into Georgia. Then, it was just another hour or so until we were going around Thomasville on US 84 by-pass.

Once back to Business 84 we turned towards town and in just a few blocks we were at the City Of Roses RV Park.

It was right at 2:20 Eastern time when we got here, so it took us, (lets see now, I have to figure this out), . . . . . . . .  Got it!!  3 hours and 20 minutes to travel 187 miles.

This is not a bad park, but it sure isn't anything special. But, for $15 a night, (Passport America rate), for a full hook-up site with 50 amp electric, you can't really complain too much. ; )

Today we'll continue heading South. I don't think we'll go any long distance because we really don't have that far to go, and my appointment with the mechanic isn't until Monday. Jim says that if they have a place to park me where he can plug me in, we may go there on Saturday or Sunday so I'll be there the 1st thing Monday morning.

He'll have to call down there to see if they have a spot.

Oh, depending on where we end up today, Jim says that there are a few places where we may stay that I  may not have an Internet connection. So, I you don't hear from me, hang in there, I'll get you caught up on my wanderings as soon as I can. : )

Did you know that Georgia is the largest state east of the Mississippi River?

  1. Hello Emrys, nice to meet you. I've always read Myrddin's Travels but have been away. In reference to 231, Jim is right, it has been that way forever and I think that route brings revenue to that city being a major thoroughfare to North Florida. Stay safe in your travels and keep up the good blog.
