Freedom and Liberty
I travel in Freedom but sleep in the security of Liberty (not only on the road, but in this amazing country of ours)

Travel Day (Statesville, NC to Wilson, NC)

Today was another travel day. The landscape has gotten much flatter and the temperature was in the upper 70's. Whew, I'm glad I ordered the second A/C unit for Liberty. The trip was uneventful with only one stop at a rest area. I'm getting to know rest areas pretty good. One thing in common from the last 3 or 4 is the Texas sized Cinnamon Bun in the vending machines. That is what I've been having for lunch after taking the picture.

Another day, another rest stop for lunch and leg stretching.

As I promised, the picture below is of the campsite from last night in Statesville. The campground was crowded with construction workers and the sites were tight. It got quiet around 9:00 pm and all was good. It was good place for an overnighter.
I got to the campsite early enough today to go to the local Walmart. I got my pills refilled with no hassle what-so-ever. I also picked up a few other things. Water was on sale, so I got a case even though I didn't need any. I go some cash money while checking out. Walmart is pretty high on my good list.
Someone asked if I came up with a name for the GPS voice. By the way, she did a good job again today. I'm thinking of maybe calling her Bertha. You know, "Bertha", one of the Buttz sisters. "Bertha Buttz". What do ya'll think? OK? Extra credit goes to anyone who remembers the name of the song that she is called out.
I will reach the coast tomorrow. I don't remember if I mentioned the campground or not. Anyway, it is by itself on an island and the campground is called North River Campground. The nearest town is Shawboro, NC. I have reservations for Sunday thru Tuesday. We will see how it turns out. Good or bad I have to stay until my mail shows up at the local Post Office.
Ya'll take care of each other. Cya.

  1. I got this one...Jimmy Castor. Troglodyte "He said: "Move...move". She got up. She was a
    big woman. BIG woman. Her name was Bertha. Bertha Butt. She was one
    of the Butt sisters. He didn't care. He looked up at her and said:
    "Sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me
