The brakes work great!

Yep, not 5 minutes from our home, there were two cars up ahead, one turning L, one behind the turner. The second car started to accelerate, then slowed down and did a bat turn to the L, no signal, no brakes. Our brakes work mighty fine and we didn't eat their bumper...sheesh...and no slopped out Sloppy Joes! I hate dumb drivers, and y'all wouldn't believe how many folks pull out in front of a big motorhome. Another guy looked like he was gonna pull out in front of us and Dick laid down on the horn. It works great, too. At least that guy waved at us...with all fingers! Missy sat in Dick's lap most of the way here, and Parker snoozed in mine. They were both good.

We got all set up and walked across the campground road to the kids' campsite and watched the little girls play in the river. It is very shallow...a good floating river. Our dinner was good...Haley made broccoli salad, brought sliced cucumbers in Italian dressing, raw baby carrots...and we polished off the cake for dessert. We all took a walk around the campground after dinner to walk off the cake, and the girls played on the playground, went for a swim in the pool and then we all sat around and watched the campfire Logan built....but it was so hot we had to keep moving back from it! Camping with kids requires a fire...but no one remembered marshmellows so we need to pick up some today so the girls can toast them tonight...yuck!

We are having to use the cg wi-fi, since there are too many trees to use our own satellite dish. I remember the days when we always wanted to camp under trees, but funny how that has now changed with the Internet. Their system is slow, because there are too many folks using it! Oh well........we'll manage.
We all plan to go and do a little sightseeing and shopping today. The girls want to either go to the splash park, or maybe just swim in the cg pool. Sooo many choices. Life is good!!!

Oh, a fire and the floating river sound divine, Sandy! Especially if it includes a nice cold beverage! Have a super time.

p.s. As a fellow Georgian I'm a bit embarassed to ask, but what is Georgia Caviar?

are there trout in that thar river?

I just got a 12 volt crockpot so I can cook on the road.

Glad the brakes work and all... other drivers have no clue about semis, campers, and mohos...

Stay Safe!!!!
