Apr 15, 2015 - Opp, AL

Hello Everybodyeeeeeee, For those of you unfamiliar with the muppets, that is how Elmo greets everyone. It just seems to happy. So, we didn't write yesterday, just kind of running on too much adrenaline, then crashed. We drove all day and stayed at a pretty State Park in Georgia. Today, drove all day and are staying in a gorgeous park in Alabama. (score one for you, Kay) There are 32 sites and about 7 campers. Right on a lake. Mike is attaching pictures.

As you step through the swinging wood doors, you're immediately...
