It was an extended 203 mile trip from Red Bay to Montgomery, AL. I say extended as we were supposed to stop at Clanton, AL at the Dandy KOA but found it closed, so we had to come an additional 40 miles to Montgomery. The trip wasn't too bad except for a couple of frog stranglers between Birmingham and Montgomery that brought the traffic to an almost standstill.

We are staying at The Woods RV Park and Campground along US 82 on the south side of Montgomery. It has three rows of very long pull-throughs that it uses for transients such as us. The sites are about average size for a transient site. We have 50 amps with very good Verizon and a clear shot to the satellite. We also have pretty good WiFi and cable that we will not be using since we have DirecTV.

We just did nothing and watched football both Saturday and Sunday. It felt really good just to decompress a bit after a very hectic and stressful week in Red Bay. We always love going to Red Bay as that is the place to go to keep the coach in good shape and have about any upgrade you can imagine installed. It's called Red Bay Time but that means having your coach in position for work by 7:00 a.m. which means you have to arise much earlier to get it ready for work and to the work bay. It also means you spend a lot of time sitting around waiting in waiting rooms or trying to find something to kill the time while the coach is getting work done. One nice thing that is different from most other repair facilities is that they let you stay with the coach and watch the technicians do the work and this is true of all the facilities here including the Tiffin Service Center. You can learn a lot this way.

Tomorrow we head for Sylvester, GA to visit with friends there until Friday.
