Summer is gone! The temperatures aren't, but "summer" is gone!! LOL! I'm back in Alabama for several weeks.
Left WVa a couple of weeks early so that I would be in Huntsville, AL in time for my granddaughter's first gymnastics competition! And SOOOOOO Proud of her! She took first in 3 of the areas and she took Overall for the competition in her level! Outstanding job, Julia!!
Another reason for the early departure from WVa....my 13th grandchild is due...any day now!! So I had to down here for that also! So my winter maintenance run is ongoing.
Have a whole list of things that I want to get done to Lily over the next few weeks.....battery, inverter, new solar panel, reconfigure storage in Lily, new fuel pump, paint Lily's roof, plugs, air filter, hmmmm....that might be enough for now!!! LOL!
Stopped by Guntersville SP Lake. Still a nice place for a day trip! Really nice views of the Lake.
Had a nice drive back to Alabama, quite a bit faster than I will, or usually do, travel this time. But had a good reason to do more than usual! Still,
some really pretty land driven through. Saw a few spots that I will get back to next year as I go back to WVa for the summer months - up on Cheat Mountain in the Monongahela Nat'l Forest.
I will be traveling without the trailer this time. I've been carrying so much stuff that I have not touched for the past 18 months that it is time to do another purge!! Living "tiny" is also having to have a "minimalist" attitude, and after 6 decades of "living large", it is a real process to "get tiny". But slowly getting there!
I hope you will come back and visit me here as I start my "winter run West" in a few weeks! I have several stops planned...Padre Island (as usual!), the 9 Painted Churches of Central Texas, McDonald Observatory, The Mojave Desert, Death Valley, The General Sherman Tree, The Great Basin....and probably more spots as I travel the forgotten roads!
I hope to see some of you out there! So as I like to say....
Be Safe, Travel Easy & Go To The Woods!!!

And the rains have kept following me!!!
