As this MCD project comes to a close this week, we are forced with the realization that we have no idea what we are doing next. The original plan was to buy a house, but we have not found anything we like in a price we can afford. We talked about going south, but that can be expensive if we are paying campground fees all winter. We could stay parked at Big Oak Ridge, but it will take a considerable amount of work to get ready for winter. I am not afraid of doing the work or staying in a trailer in the winter, but we just don't know if there will be much work in the area. Not to mention we don't have full hookups here.
We will take yours prayers for wisdom. God knows what's next even though we don't.
And if anyone has property or lives in warmer climates and has room for a 33ft trailer that wouldn't mind some snow birds...... Please let us know.

We were bored and wanted to do something fun. We looked up the free museums on our pass list and went searching. The first one we went to was at a college and was uber lame. It had a planetarium and museum, but the planetarium was not free and the museum was like two classrooms of college kid made stuff. BORING!!
So then we drove another 20 minutes to the Museum of Life and Science. SCORE! We love hands on stuff that teaches us about science and this one was a winner. It was so big and so nice that we went two days in a row! My favorite part was the wind section. Here we got to drive radio controlled sail boats. This combines several things I love. Water, boats, and tech. It was sweet. So was the crash test dummy exhibit. Saw that at 10mph severe damage happens without a seat belt. It was pretty shocking. I think we all got the point. Buckle up!
Anyhow, here's a bunch of pix!

We are staying at the North Carolina State Fair grounds this week. It's pretty nice. Full hookups for only $25 a night. Awesome! They have been having a lot of rain so things are soggy, but we got to take a walk around the whole fair. On the way here we passed some sort of accident that had the traffic backed up for about 5 miles. I would have hated to be on the other side of the road. After being obnoxious for so so so long, then kids finally fell asleep and we had a peaceful last hour of the trip.
