Best Laid Plans…

You know what they say about the best laid plans don’t you?

After two days of driving, we were finally below the storms range… we could finally relax and enjoy the drive… with one more day of driving, we would be in South Carolina visiting with family…

However, things didn’t go as planned!

Mom and I had researched everything… especially the costs of staying for a months time at each campground we were planning to stay in…

However, when we arrived at our first destination, we found that the prices were $200-$300 higher than expected… We were devastated!

What were we going to do?!?

Able to stay at our family’s home for a few days allowed us time to make some necessary phone calls… however, it wasn’t long before the HOA informed us that we needed to move…

Frantically we called every RV park within 50 miles. There was nothing in our price range…

It was at this time that my cousin called her pastor… he would allow us to park our camper in their church parking lot! What a God send! That would give us a week to find something… anything!

Alas, even this extra time given us would prove to be fruitless!

Since our camper was not provided with a generator, our battery was wearing down, and even our lights were going dim… although we had propane for the refrigerator, we’d run out and were about to lose all the food that we had just purchased!

However, once again, we were blessed!

One of the parishioners of the church allowed us to plug in and use their electricity….

What planned on being only a few days stay, turned into several months…

Our plans to head farther south… postponed

With expenses much higher than planned, our future was uncertain…

Till next time,
