Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - Bolding Mill COE Campground, Gainesville, GA, Day 6 - 0 Miles, 6,627.4 Towing Miles For the Trip

A short burst of rain overnight, otherwise, just a dreary, cloudy day. I haven't seen the sun in awhile! I did lots or reading, then at 3:00 called Rite-Aid/Walgreens to check that the ordered bottles of one of my eye drops came in. The saga continues - while the ordered drops did arrive, the refill of another drop that just had to be approved by the druggist now seems to require a new prescription from my eye doctor. That didn't happen, because the doctor I use in NY has multiple offices & won't be in the one I use until Thursday. I called, and they will issue a new prescription after 4:30 today, so there is a possibility that I can get my refill tomorrow! Who would think that getting non restricted prescriptions filled by the same chain pharmacy could be this difficult (all the prescriptions had at least 2 refills listed on the old bottle)!

So, more reading. At least I didn't make the 20 mile drive to find I have to do it again tomorrow. I also discovered that even though one of the campground hosts gave me an address for the package of filters I ordered, another host told me today that you can't have packages shipped to the campground. Since FedEx shows the package is on the way & should be delivered by the end of tomorrow, it should be interesting! I ordered a stainless steel pie pan from Amazon, and had it shipped to a "Amazon Locker" in Gainesville. I've never done that before, so if it works, that will be a new option for packages on the road. Unfortunately, Amazon Lockers is not an option on a B & H order.

I wish it would warm up a bit. Still only getting up to 50°F at the middle of the day. Even Oswego, NY is doing the low 50's, although they are still going down to the 20's at night; here it is only down to the mid 40's. I may drive over to the only open bathroom at the other end of the campground & try for a shower. I could use the trailer, but without a sewer connection, I don't want to fill the gray tank.

I had a late lunch / early dinner of chicken tacos made with the rest of yesterday's broasted chicken.
