Meet Me in St. Louis

I’m in St. Louis for a few days.  Sunday truly was a day of rest for me, and it felt really good not to move.  Although I knew this in the back of my mind, I’ve confirmed that we will need to build in more “down days” than originally anticipated.  OK, Tim, you can say, “I told you so.”

The main reason for the stop in St. Louis was to return to Van City RV for yearly maintenance on the RV, as well as to address a few minor warranty issues.  As usual, the staff was wonderful, resolved all of my items and had me out of there in just a few hours.

Up On the Lift

Wow, This Is High!
Tonight, my friend Jane arrives.  She is flying in from Miami to travel with me on the second leg of the trip to Albany, New York.  We’re staying in a hotel near the airport since her flight does not arrive until after 10:30 pm.  No way am I driving into a campground near midnight.

Since Van City finished with the RV so quickly, I checked into the hotel early.  Tonight is another milestone – Kitty’s first night in a hotel.  She may have been happier staying in the RV, which is now her home, but it’s just too hot outside and there are no hookups for AC.  So, I traipsed into the hotel carrying the cat carrier, portable litter box, food, bed, blanket and other assorted supplies.  That was just her things.  Is this what parents of babies have to deal with?  There weren’t enough arms to carry much for myself.

After thoroughly checking out the room, Kitty apparently has determined that it is safe.  It’s now time for a well-deserved nap.
