Up at 04:30AM with my bride and had coffee. Then she was off to the truck company, I blogged for a little while, then I started packing the fiver with Donna and My clothes, Once that was done I took the truck and went and topped off the diesel tank. Also got a loaf of fresh bread and hot dog buns and put them in the fridge in the fiver. Made sure the slide was in completely and the seals were tight all around.
Lets see got my traveling outfit set out for Thursday morning, train tee shirt,check,white shorts,check,sandals,check, Rigg’s Navy Seal Bandana, Check. Looks like the guys are good to go…
Two nights and a wake up tomorrow I will hitch up and turn the rig around so it is facing out toward the street, so whenever we are ready to leave, Anytime after 06:00AM we can and will miss most of the morning AM traffic, also I will take I-270 over into Illinois and then I-155 south to I-64, rather than go straight down I-64 from our place, and miss going through downtown St Louis on a work day.We will then go east on I-64 to I-55 then south onto I-29 until we hit I-75 and then that’s it to Fla. If you see a fiver heading south it will have our Sam & Donna 5th Wheel Vagabonds logo in the back window. We plan on stopping for the night once we cross into Georgia.
Rigg’s and I were sitting here in the kitchen and I said to him, “you know we are going on vacation don’t you, he kept giving me this strange look and cocking his head back and further, Finally I patted his head and said two more days “Oh Boy’ Oh Boy’ and he got all excited and started doing spins and wagging his tail like he was saying Oh Boy”.Labs are so smart.
In yesterday’s blog I told you about having the vet make Rigg’s do a couple of his tricks for his treats, He is being taught to be a gentleman and he bow’s for his treat. After he bows he will get on his belly and crawl on all fours like a good Navy Seal dog.
Well that’s about it for now , were both waiting for Nick to hit the door from school, then she will do homework and it’s playtime. I will see if she wants to go to the park before we leave and while the truck is still unhitched.
Hope everyone is having a great week, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
