On the road to Tucson, day 1

Happy Halloween! We did a blistering 230 miles today and are now lakeside in Pell City, Alabama. Today was the first day that we put diesel in the truck while towing the 5th wheel. We went to Flying J which has really pegged the RV market's requirements. They have dedicated RV lanes with gas and diesel, propane and dump stations. There are no canopies so there is no danger of scraping off the top of the RV. No trauma, no drama, we love that.

This is a lake somewhere on the way - the Southeast still has a significant drought. The lakes are very low.

This is the lake we're parked by today. It's kind of a neat place. Pell City has nothing to recommend it except the lake. It's lake Logan Martin. Lots of people appear to spend the summer here. They're dug in like ticks on their sites.

Tomorrow's goal is Pelahatchie, Misissippi. There's a Yogi Bear Jellystone park there, and it looks like it's far enough to drive. We're not driving until we drop this trip West. Today we did laundry and we did not have to unhitch the coach. So, it was a successful day.
