Raining in Gallipolis, Ohio

We had hoped to leave New Lisbon before it started raining, but it started at 7 a.m.! So much for an early start. We did get gone by 7:50 a.m. and we had minimal rain along the way. After about 20 minutes, we were out of the rain and just had spots of it on the drive to Gallipolis. We enjoy the fairgrounds campground here and got set up and took Neal out before the real rain set in.

We would have driven further, but once you get into West Virginia, it's pretty much a bust for camping for us. There isn't 40' of flat land on which to park Phaeton Place and if there is, getting there is impossible. There is one park we know of along the interstate and Terry called, but they are not open until May 1. So we decided to sit tight and make it an early night so we can get up early and drive on into Charlottesville, Virginia. Our grandson, Ronan, is turning 3 this week and we have to be there.

The drive tomorrow will be mostly mountains, but we have done it many times before. . . so no surprises.

Some of you have asked about Terry's doctor appointments. They went well. They are adjusting some of his meds, trying to eliminate the cause of the arrhythmias he had. Until then, they still don't want him to drive because the onset of the arrhythmias is too quick to respond, so he remains my navigator. He does that extremely well, so no problem there.

Till next time. . .
