Thursday, November 2, 2023 - Natchez State Park, Natchez, MS, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 1,599.9 Miles for the trip

On my walk around the campground this morning I finally found a RV smaller than mine:

Motorcycle Trailer

After my morning walk I started a load of laundry. Back at the trailer I made breakfast and read some forums & journals. I did some house keeping, and, when walking around the outside of the trailer, discovered that the fresh water tank overflow was overflowing. Went inside & checked the level in the fresh water tank - it was full. So, the pump didn't fix itself. I'm not sure what starts it since I went for a couple of days with no problem, but I'm draining the tank back to 1/3. I may order a replacement pump when I hit Tucson since I'm there for 5 nights. While it is possible that I could take it apart & discover why it is leaking, I've also had problems with it running with no leaks in the trailer water system, so it may be time for a replacement. If nothing else, once I have a new one I can take this one apart without worrying that I can't get it back to working condition.

While I didn't use the shower, there are 2 - with a wand type showerhead & single handle faucet in the standard stall & a high pressure, low volume in the handicapped. A small drying room with bench & shelf and a bunch of unusable broken hooks. No shelf in the shower. Overall, at best a C+.

After lunch I spent the afternoon reading. Still reading Ellis Peter's Flight of a Witch, although I started a new audio book - The Girl With the Dragonfruit Tattoo by Carrie Doyle downloaded from the NYC library. Don't know anything about it other than they suggested it & it isn't the similar titled The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I read and enjoyed.

It did warm up this afternoon. Around 62°F, but feels warmer sitting in the sun. Eventually, the sun ducked behind the trees & I headed into the trailer.

Dinner was a Barber Broccoli & Cheese Chicken with snap beans.

Until Tomorrow -
