Packing up

We have been in a whirlwind the last couple of days. We have made final visits with friends and family saying our "so longs". Today we had lunch with our son and daughter in law at a Cracker Barrel in Lafayette, Indiana. Tonight we are having an early birthday dinner for our Grandson Nicholas since we will be gone on his actual birthday next month.
We are leaving the motorcycle and trailer here at our daughters home so I attached the trickle charger and made sure it was set to handle the winter storage. Then I gave it one last look before shutting and locking the door. :-(
I also got the motorhome ready to roll. I topped off the air in all the tires, put away the few things we had outside and greased the arms of our tow bar. We are planning to stop tomorrow at a Speedco just outside Indianapolis and have the oil and all the filters changed. Speaking of leaving, we are planning on pulling out mid morning tomorrow. We have a little over 200 miles to travel so it will, hopefully, be an easy travel day.
Our first "official" Amazon duty will be a meet and greet function Monday afternoon. We will get our photos taken for our name badges and find out what department we will be working in as well as our schedule. We are both looking forward to this new adventure but, as always, it's hard to say goodbye. I'll keep you posted.


  1. The site next to the tree was taken today. But the one next to us is still open. Hopefully it will still be available when you get here tomorrow. :)

  2. Good luck at Amazon. Hope it all goes well for you.

  3. Safe travels today! Good luck to you two at Amazon.

  4. Looks like a nice day for your 200 mile trip...be safe. Looking forward to your Amazon experience posts!

  5. Yea, you made it. Parked and set up. Welcome for the next 2 1/2 months.

  6. Got a few friends working in Campbellsville this year. We're hoping for next year.
