Rolling…Day 1

The Nerdfest is finally back on the move, with a rather late start to this annual summer event. I am the lone pilot on this leg of the voyage. We waved goodbye to Batman and Dale, who will join us later on. After a quick farewell breakfast with my brother and his dear Bill, we hit the road. For 20 minutes. To get to my RV shop to fix the busted turn signal on the towed car. Despite losing 2.5 hours there (no charge!) (and we got propane!), we made it past Birmingham, Alabama. It was my first time overnighting at a Walmart. Color me pleasantly surprised. It was easy, convenient, and fairly quiet. 

The hardest part of the day was dealing with my own anxieties. Many of my fears are reasonable and commensurate with the large responsibility of driving a big motorhome long distances. Let’s just leave it by describing my feelings as mostly careful with a 50% chance of occasional, locally heavy terrified.
