Big Travel Day !

All the way to Fairfield, OH in the RV!  It's about 25 miles, I guess.  Near where I used to work.

My 30-day registration is up tomorrow, so off I'm going to DMV.  They have to check the VIN number, so it's a "must" drive the RV.  It's not a hard route...but there will actually be other cars on the road! LOL!  I will have to park across the way in the Kroger parking lot....I know, for sure, the DMV parking area isn't suitable for RVs.

While I'm down there, I will stop at Goodwill and drop off some more clothes, etc. and see if they have any shorts in my size.  Also have to stop at Frank's Glass and see if they can cut a new mirror for my's right down the street from Goodwill.  Luckily, they are both on the same side of the street (busy Route 4) and both have good sized parking lots!  Then on to Lowe's -- another big parking lot!  YAY!

The local granary near my house is going to weigh the RV for me, too, today while I'm out and about. It won't be an "official" weigh like at a weigh station, but it will give me a good idea where I am with weight relative to the 11,500 gross limit.  I won't have the two large totes on the back cargo rack and a few other things inside, but even without those items, I'll be able to tell if I'm going to be close. Right now I have no idea!

This ride will also tell me if I've secured everything inside for travel.  Would prefer not to hear "CRASH"!  LOL!

So..... off I'm going on my first trip!
