Day 2. We knew today was going to be a long travel day. According to our RVTripWizard program, actual driving time was calculated at five hours. We encountered very bad major highways in Indiana. I thought South Carolina highways were horrible. We had to drive by Chicago. Driving around Chicago was tense. Four and five lanes of traffic. Big trucks on both sides of us. Hubby drove like a champ. Never did he have white knuckles. We laughed thinking how I would do driving the big rig around Chicago.
I got totally confused forgetting about the time change. I even had to text my sister to ask what time it was back home. Then DAH! It dawned on me. Went from Eastern time to Central time.
We are staying at Milton KOA for two nights. This KOA is minutes from I90 in Milton, Wisconsin.
We have a cement, level pull-thru. It is a deluxe site so we have plenty of room for the Big Boy Truck. We have a picnic table and fire pit.
The minute I exited our Big Boy Truck, a gust of wind blew this white stuff into my face. Oh my allergies. We won’t be enjoying the firepit or the picnic table. Can anyone tell me what this white stuff is? I imagine it is falling from the trees.
It appears to be a nice dog area.
The pool area is very nice and the camp store has a small restaurant. You can order food at the Snack Attack Shack and they will deliver it to you site. We ordered to go yesterday and today.
Day 3. I love waking up in a new place. The campground was very quiet this morning. It was early when I woke up The neighbor in the airstream must have a day job. Yesterday I saw him come home carrying a briefcase and he was in dress clothes. I love that I am retired and can enjoy every day of our travels. I don’t take anything for granted. I’m blessed.
Today was very busy. I washed a few loads of clothes. I transfered and we picked up a prescription for Hubby. We use CVS pharmacies and this works out great for us. I had to call the KOA I wanted to reserve for June 11. I wanted to talk to them over the phone to make sure they can accommodate our large rig. I don’t want any surprises. They can accommodate us so the reservation is made. We have AFLAC and I have to send in a claim. Hubby had a pre-cancer growth removed.
I have an office setup in the 5th wheel garage with a computer, laser printer and portable scanner. Everything I need. People ask why I have this setup. Remember, we travel 10 months a year.
It’s going to be a hot one today. Sometimes I feel I can never escape the heat. Everywhere we go the temps are in the high 80s or low 90s.This is crazy. Today will be a high of 90º with 81% humidity.
Hubby does not ever miss an ice cream opportunity. The camp store also has ice cream options. Hubby got a Strawberry Sundae with real strawberries. Hubby is a happy camper.
My observation concerning reservations at Campgrounds. People on different forums have been asking if reservations were hard to get because of so many people buying RVs in this time of COVID 19. People want to vacation and not sleep in hotel beds. They want to be fully contained. My opinion is what I am seeing are seasonal and annual tenants using up most of the sites. Some people find it economical to buy an RV and rent a spot. And why not. Trailer parks are becoming a thing of the past. Just my two cents for anyone who cares.
If we are ever in this area again, we would stay here again. I did notice a big lake very close by.
God Bless, Stay Safe, Be Kind to Every Kind and if you are in this area, stay at the Milton KOA.
