Where I stayed
We didn't end up planning anything yesterday because we finally did our taxes. All went well with that. Today we cleaned up some in the RV (well Jared did while I talked to my dad for a while) and then we got to planning. We booked flights for my mom, dad and Shannon to come meet up with us the Tuesday before Easter. They are going to be flying in to Albuquerque, NM and then flying out of Phoenix, AZ on the Monday after Easter. We will be checking out the Grand Canyon. So in the mean time Jared and I will be working our way west so we can pick them up in Albuquerque when their flight gets in. After getting that scheduled we did some rough mapping out so that Jenny and Bryant can meet up with us in June or July. So it ended up being a productive day.
Thursday, March 31st
It stormed all night last night so Jared checked out the weather in the middle of the night when the storms woke him up. It looked like it would be pretty bad today but Jared saw a window when it wasn't supposed to be raining. So we got up at 8 something and got out pretty quickly. Luckily it wasn't raining when we unhooked the RV and took Nash on a walk.
Our plan was to drive to Kissimmee, FL to get some work done on the RV. We had a heat shield recall that we had to get taken care of and we wanted to get our oil changed. Since we left early from Clearwater we stopped at IHOP for some breakfast. Everything went well at Camping World and all is right with the RV.
We were driving away from a tornado watch most of the day so we were in some heavy storms. Jared did some excellent driving though and we made it here fine. It isn't raining here now and isn't supposed to tonight or tomorrow so hopefully we are in the all clear.
Like I said earlier we are doing a drive west. We did a gulf coast drive when we were heading to FL so we are going to do a lot of driving over the next couple of days to make it to San Antonio, TX.
