Awake: 5:45am Temp 56 sleep 5+26 overcast overnight @ Opelika, Alabama.

Mid morning, I climbed up on the roof & cleaned off the slide tops of that yellow pollen.

We say our goodbyes to the few people we've talked to on both sides of our campsite & then leave the Lakeside RV Park @ 9:37am following US-280 to I-85 to I-65, arriving @ the "Woods RV Park & Campground" in Montgomery, Alabama @ 10:50am.

Today's travel: 71 miles 1+23 time 11gal used 6.7 mpg 50 mph avg speed.

As cluttered as the last campground was, the Woods is just the opposite; very clean, organized with fairly well manicured sites.

It's been quite awhile since I've had the time to simply read magazines & the collected paraphernalia from the Perry Georgia rally, so I spent the afternoon doing just that while Kathy went grocery shopping @ a nearby Wal-Mart & card shopping at the Dollar Tree.

Dinner: lamb chops with mint jelly, brown & wild rice with golden raisins, stewed tomatoes & a mixed salad.

Evening movie: "I'll Cry Tomorrow" with Susan Hayward, Richard Conte, Jo Van Fleet, Ray Danton, Eddie Albert, etc. Superlative portrayal by Hayward of star Lillian Roth, her assorted marriages & alcoholic problems; everything a movie biography should be. 1955.
Based on a true story, which was sometimes difficult to watch.

Lights out: 12:48am
