25 degrees & freezing rain
The drive from Jackson County Park to Gunter Hill Army Corps of Engineers Campground was uneventful. As usual our Verizon navigator was right on spot.
John worked on the electrical problem with the help of Stanley at the Tiffin Motorhome Service Helpline. The diagnosis was a loose connection within the inverter.
It was up to John to locate the culprit. Within fifteen to twenty minutes, all house, battery powered equipment was up and running! Thanks Stanley and John.....and Bob Tiffin for having the service helpline!
Despite the weather, we are enjoying our stay here at Gunter Hill C.O.E.
Gunter Hill is beautiful and the sites are huge! Three forty to forty-five foot coaches could fit into our pull through site.
This is our view of the water. The campground is on Catoma Creek part of the Alabama River backwaters.
The campground sits in a forest of Hickory, Pine and Sycamore. Sites have electricity, water and sewer hook-ups.
It is so nice to be able to do our laundry here in the motorhome as we wait for good weather to continue our journey across North America.
I am longing for the desert in the Southwest. Earlier, I was contemplating whether it is the journey or the destination that is best. Finally came to the conclusion that it is both because this is our chosen lifestyle.
Yes, it is cold outdoors. But we are warm as toast with our electric heaters inside the motorhome.
We have chosen to use the electric heaters rather than the propane gas furnace due to the price hike and supposedly propane shortage.
Electricity is included in our daily, America the Beautiful pass rate of $11 per night. Our closest neighbor is about 200 yards from us if you don't count deer as neighbors.
If I were to rate Gunter Hill Campground, it would receive a five out of five. It is dog friendly, wonderful concrete pads on which to park, water, sewer and electricity are on site. The distance between sites is good and in the summer there is privacy created by the surrounding forest. A picnic table is situated on a crushed stone base and has a fire pit / grill located close.
Now it is time to take the load out of the washer/dryer and start on bed clothing and a late lunch. If we are lucky, we may be able to leave here tomorrow, if the roads are clear and safe.
Megan sent this photo of Harper, the big sister and Emerson, the baby sister. I just had to share them with you, my friends.
Oh, oh, the freezing rain has stopped and it is officially snowing. Oh happy day!
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your comments.
God bless each and every one of you.
