We Now Return to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Location: Adairsville, GA (High 50, Low 46)

Over the past few days, the saying I used for the blog post title kept running through my head. It’s a weird experience working for Amazon, because it is so time intensive that after a while it does seem like it is reality. And then all of a sudden it ends and it feels like you’ve stepped back into another dimension.

We have been working on getting back to a normal kind of schedule. This morning I didn’t get up until almost 6:30, which was a wonderful feeling. Financially, it was a very lucrative season. We easily surpassed what we made last year so our accounts are now in good shape for the next eight months.

Expo departure

Yesterday morning, we were so happy to be able to hook up and pull out of the Expo parking lot that was our home base for the past month.

Early trip



And we started out with a bright blue sky which was also nice.



We traveled through two states yesterday…

Tennessee sign





Georgia Sign 2






It was a longer day’s travel than we normally do, about 375 miles. Last year we stayed near Nashville when we left Campbellsville, but this year we decided to just get the trip done in one day.



We traveled through a hazy Nashville,



and by Chattanooga.

ChattanoogaWe were lucky because the traffic wasn’t bad at all. It seemed pretty busy for a Sunday, but we never had to slow down or encountered any traffic issues.


Harvest Moon


We arrived at Harvest Moon RV Park around 4:30 pm and got settled in. It was cloudy but at least it was warmer.


We are here for a week and then we will be heading south to FLORIDA!!


  1. nice to be done with work!! enjoy the travels to your winter destination!!

  2. Always nice to be done and have some extra $ in the bank as well. Hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas and safe travels.

  3. You live thru another season.... But I wonder how the workers that work at Amazon year around manage to stand the heavy load..? Surely they don't make the year round people work the way they make the camper force work... The people couldn't last with that..... Anyway congrats on getting on with the rest of your life.... LOL

    1. Believe it or not, the fulltime employees are held to even higher standards. The campers only have to make 85% of the rate the fulltimers are accountable for, and they could have mandatory OT called at any time. I don't know how people work like that year round. I don't think I could do it.

  4. Glad you made it safely through another season.
    Just maybe we'll cross paths this year. We missed you at Williston. Our first stop in Florida will be at the yellow Jacjet RV Park just outside Old Town on the Suwamee River.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. Now it's 'back to normal' for both of us. Wish we were in the same state and could have fun not working together, lol. Have a safe trip to Florida, and enjoy the sunshine!

  6. Florida waites you! We will be in a series of state parks in the mid part of Florida for January. We sure have enjoyed the Keys this month. But it is time for us to move on as well.

  7. Cool Beans, Enjoy the week and have a blast in FL.

  8. We've also been enjoying FL and the Keys this month. Nice warm weather coming your way, congrats!

  9. This looks like so much fun! My wife and I have been talking about doing something like this for while. We don't have an RV yet but are looking into getting one. How much was yours if you don'e mind me asking? http://www.thecaravancompany.com.au
