A truly lackluster day is in store for me today, with the most exciting part of it driving south to North Carolina. Woo Hoo! After sleeping in until 10:30am, I spend the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon at my usual Wal-Mart parking lot digs, cleaning up my home on wheels, working on the website, and waiting from my sister Teresa to call me from Europe. The call comes in, I complete what I wish to complete on the website, I then make preparations for an evening departure.

After spending five nights in the parking lot, I've noticed one primary thing. Many folks have been parking their vehicles in the far reaches of the lot, as I have been, and Wal-Mart doesn't care. I wonder how long that camper has been parked across the way. I honestly think someone is actually living there. But, then again, I shouldn't talk, eh?

The weather is cloudy and chilly this late afternoon. Halloween is tomorrow, pretty soon the snow will be falling? Well, I won't be here, I'm going south!!!

It's getting late, time to hit the road. After filling up on some ultra-healthy grub, I grab the reigns to my white metal steed and I head out in search of greener (and warmer) pastures.

A boatload of driving is in store for me this evening. My drive will take me through the heart of Washington, D.C., to and through Virginia, then into the heart of North Carolina. It is there I'll find my Uncle Donald, my father's only brother, who I haven't seen in years.
