Well Mr. Murphy, (Murphy's Law) sneaks out after lurking in the shadows.

Everything was going smooth,, getting everything all gathered up and stored and packed for a huge journey to another RV park, on the other side of the city, A smaller park, in a quiet country setting, Some say its 40 miles from nowhere, turn left, then left again. While getting everything for the move,, it was a balmy 100 plus degrees, Sun baking down on ya and making you feel like a chocolate chip cookie on  pan sheet in the oven. Then the day before the move, a rain front decides to pass thru and just downpour and rain and rain and rain some more, followed by more rain.Nothing says fun,like flood puddles and mud.

Pulling the 5'er out wont be to much of a problem,, just hook up and drive like ya stole it attitude. The problem falls on the new location, Gravel road, soft grass on each side and very little gravel on the pad site. But it does have nice lush grass for when ya do get settled in.

Weather doesnt really bug me when traveling,, ya just deal with it,

This short relocation for some reason is getting under my skin,, It very well may be that its just a quick toodle down the road, just to park it.

But on a positive note,, Let the fun begin.

Hope it went well and you are now all settled! Be better when you have your feet up and a new view out the window...

You will feel better when you are settled.  The rain has to stop at some point, otherwise the world would be just one big ocean.  :)

Post some pics if you can, when you are settled in.

It is not the relocation that is irking you, it is all the little problems--like tons of rain; hot, humid temperature; no wind much less a breeze--in other words Murphy raising his head and spreading his irritations around like mosquitoes rising at sunset. Hang in there, and this too shall pass.
