Shortest trip ever...

 This morning we were in the site on the right.
This weekend will be Columbus Day holiday weekend.  On Monday all the kids in the state of Massachusetts will be free from the confines of school.  We hope to have our granddaughters spend a couple days with us.  We could have a campfire, roast hotdogs on sticks and make s'mores. 
For a lot of RV folks, it is also the last camping weekend of the season.  They will soon be winterizing and storing their rigs until after the snow melts in the spring. For us, we will just head South to warmer climes.
The campground here and in many places throughout the north country will be at capacity. Indeed, we had to vacate our camp site to someone who made a reservation long ago for our old spot. Luckily for us we just had to move one spot over.  We stay in this new site for four nights and we can then move back to our old spot. Seems silly but the owners of the camp ground want to keep their promise and we find no fault in that. 
So we drove all the way around the park so we would not have to make any tight "k" turns and stopped to set up camp in almost the same location.  We stopped at the LP station here in the RV park and topped off the LP tank while we were out and about. We may get stuck in some cold weather before we leave and we can now burn the furnaces without worrying that we will run out of gas.  We have been quite comfortable with the help of a space heater and the heat pumps.  Heat pumps are pretty much useless when the outdoor thermometer drops below 40 degrees and we will then have to rely on the furnaces. Besides the furnaces we use the LP (liquid propane) for all of our stove top cooking and we can make hot water with the gas if the electricity should go out.
On the stove last night Joanie "threw together" a creative dish that was also quite healthy.  It was a kale soup that also included a little squash, onions, some left over already cooked bacon, ham and kielbasa all in a beef broth base.  Yummy!
Wishing everyone a happy holiday that commemorates one of the so-called discoverers of the western hemisphere.
