A Few Photos and A Leveler Report

Rantoul, IL

59 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Clear. High of 82F. Winds less than 5 mph.

Jim took a few photos of our site yesterday morning. In these photos, you'll see that Bobbie T is in the sun, but you have to remember that when these photos were taken, it was about 8:00 AM, she's facing East and those big trees on the awning side of her give shade for the hottest part of the day as they're on the South.
The view of our site from across the street, looking West at our site.

The view from under the awning looking back towards the street.

And, the view from under the awning looking towards the rear of the site.

Like I said yesterday, I think we'll like this site. (I know I do already). We had shade almost all afternoon, and Bobbie T's air conditioner didn't have to struggle at all, even though the temperatures got up into the middle 80's and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.

Not a whole lot happened around here yesterday. Jim went down to the other end of the park, where we were parked before, and talked to Ron for awhile. Then in the afternoon, he watched some of the NASCAR Nationwide race on TV before going outside and removing the tow bar from the front of CLT and stowing it under Bobbie T.

Then, he talked to an RVer named Bob for a while. He and his wife, Linda, are just here for the weekend and will be leaving here today.

For dinner, Linda made BLT sandwiches and cooked some of that great sweet corn that Jim and Linda bought from Mark's Produce up near Baraboo. Then they watched British Comedies on PBS until bedtime.

Since we're back in Rantoul now and it's been a month since they were installed, I thought I'd give you a report on the Big Foot Levelers that Jim and Linda had installed on Bobbie T.

So far, they have worked flawlessly. They're easy to use, even though Jim and Linda bought the manual system, the large pads have been great on soft surfaces, (no need for boards under the jacks), and they have been able to level Bobbie T even when we were in sites that were quite slanted.

And, they're so much easier to use than trying to level by driving up on boards, plus, we don't have to carry all those boards around anymore. ;-)

Don't know of anything exciting happening today, but if anything happens, I'll be sure to let you know tomorrow. ;-)

Did you know that on this date in 1896 - Harvey Hubbell received a patent for the electric light bulb socket with a pull-chain?
