The time has finally come to pack our things and move. I'm excited. Katie's excited too. Our next place is in the city of Columbia. Surely they will have a cell signal and TV stations to grab. Seventy nine miles of pavement and concrete pass below the tires as we trod our way north by northwest. We are welcomed at the gates of Sesquicentennial State Park in Columbia South Carolina for our next seven days of camping.
The first order of business is to find our spot and get settled in. As we roll up to site #16 I can see this isn't going to be a great place to park Penny. Our sandy parking spot slopes downhill and to the left. The slope is beyond the limits of our jacks. Perhaps a little creativity is in order? I bust out a survival shovel from Shirley and dig some holes for the back of Penny to drive into. Letting the big girl rest her rear end a couple of inches lower is enough to let the leveling jacks finish off the job.
An hour passes as Katie and I lazily set the house up the way we like it. Shirley gets all the junk unloaded and we head in to town for more groceries. Living with a tiny fridge has its drawbacks. Yet another reason to look forward to owning a real house made of sticks and stones. For now this is our life, a life on the road.

I'm just a guy, with a wife, a dog, and three cats. Watch us travel the country.
