Stix n Brix
Clayton, NC

A warm welcoming howdy to our newest followers, Kenny and Angela who also have a nice looking blog.  If some of you follow along but have not signed up as a follower, that's ok.  I do that too.  I'm a lurker on a few sites and forums.  :)

We are spoiled.  You can almost smell us we're so rotten.  We have never been the typical weekend warrior when it comes to camping.  I've been lucky enough to have this schedule of working three weeks (long hours) and then off a week every month for the past several years.  When we go camping, we don't feel like we need to cram everything in to just two days.  Since my schedule will be changing this winter,  we won't go camping much next spring or summer.  That got us thinking that we need to go somewhere nice this month before the rig gets winterized.  I'm off the week of Thanksgiving but I thought our favorite spots might be booked.  Gin checked Huntington Beach State Park, and lo and behold, one of our preferred sites was still available.  Murrell's Inlet, here we come!  We're planning to have a couple of campfires and ride the e-bikes some.  Maybe a trip to Camping World and a little geocaching, but mostly relaxing.  Gin made the comment that Wanda's all cleaned up and ready to are we. 

We finished waxing the rig and I would love to wax the roof.  It's not rubber.  It's raining now however so I know it won't get done.  That's really ok because I wasn't looking forward to it anyway.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

Alrighty, we will keep a watch on your blog for your arrival. We will be here during Thanksgiving week and would love to come out and visit you two at Huntington Beach.

Unfortunately, I work retail and that is not a week you get time off. However, hope we can find a time to get together for a visit.

Drive slow when you pass the Murells Inlet Home Depot. I am real good at recognizing Winnebago Braves with a maroon toad and 2 kayaks ;o)

Safe Travels and Happy Trails...

Three weeks on and a week off? I'd kill for your schedule...oops, maybe that's not a good thing to say to a police officer?

Good for you getting that special campsite. What a great way to spend Thanksgiving week. Feel free to get a little extra relaxing in for us too. We'd appreciate it. ;c)

Waxing Wanda's roof, you're spoiling her! But then she's such a pretty MH, she deserves the TLC.

Take care and enjoy, We'll be thinking of you while we're up in NJ for Tgiving shivering!
