I HAVE HIGH SPEED WIFI AT OUR CAMPSITE!!!! I AM IN THE COMFORTS OF MY CAMPER, ON MY COUCH WITH HIGH SPEED WIRELESS!!!! I'm going so fast that my fingers can't keep up on the keyboard!!!
Anyway, after several Xanax and a box of wine, we made it around Atlanta and are now in a campground/marina at Alatoona Lake near Acworth, Georgia. BTW, I AM just kidding about the box of wine and the Xanax, but it sounded like a plan!! I just don't deal well with 10 lanes of traffic. Thank goodness Dan is calm about it. I had a death grip on the door handle and I'd about pushed my toes through my shoes using the invisible brakes on my side of the truck. Everyone but us seemed to drive like there was no tomorrow!!!
Anyway, THANKS to Cindy at Alligator River and all that info she gave us about mistletoe, that is all I see when I look at trees anymore!! And there is even a Georgia state park called Mistletoe State Park!!! I never would have given those "clumps" of green things in the trees a second thought but now I see it in my sleep!!!
It has been so cold here that the park has had frozen water lines (that burst)which has made the paved roads like ice rinks in some places. Dan couldn't even get into the original campsite we were assigned and sat on the ice spinning the truck tires!!! It is expected to be down to 20 here tonight...but 54 tomorrow where we are headed.
Tomorrow we head up to Carters Lake to meet with the Army Corp officer about a possible position there next fall/winter. It is supposed to be a beautiful day!!! Yep, camera is going with me! It is about 90 minutes north of here. Friday we check out of here and begin our trek towards Texas. We hope to be there on Monday.
Dan and I have stayed at this lake before but at a Georgia State Park called Red Top Mountain. The first time we were there was probably in the mid 90's. The lake level was good. The next time we were there the lake level was down considerably (I think that may have been about 2003). THE LAKE LEVEL NOW IS HORRIBLE. I may try to get some photos of it before we leave but let me put it this way...It ain't purdy.
I hope to get caught up on other blogs while we are here and I may post a few photos if time allows before we leave here on Friday...and begin the route around Atlanta to get back on 20 W. Gives me nightmares...
OH! Speaking of nightmares...last night I was awakened (boy that doesn't sound like proper grammar) by this horrid honking, squawking noise. I could not for the life of me figure out what could be making that awful racket out in the woods or in the field. THEN I remembered; we were NOT at Alligator River anymore and we were not even CLOSE to the woods. The racket was a small flock of tame farm type geese who were probably freezing their honkers off in the pond at the campground we were in.
