Two Hours from Tropical Storm Barry

Camping in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, it’s the calm before the Storm. Staying at the Elks Lodge through Wednesday and then down to New Orleans (hopefully).

This Elks Lodge sits on a 90 acre property with a fully stocked lake. As always, the Elks I meet are welcoming and friendly. Being a member not only helps support their good work in the communities they serve, most have a great network of RV facilities that members can use. 10 dollars a night with full hookups, and access to the club house for dinners and the like ($5 steak night tonight!!)

It has been a real joy to camp with my newly upgraded AGM 6v batteries and upgraded converter charger (Thanks Vinnie) along with my Zamp 180 suitcase, and the Easy Start on AC with the Honda 2200i.

That Elks Lodge sounds tempting. I hope this unique storm is mild so your plans aren’t interrupted. A little tropical storm named Michael changed our plans last fall. After Michael, I’m leery of any tropical storm. And I agree that solar panels and a pair of true deep cycle batteries transforms an Airstream into a real boondocking machine. Enjoy your new power freedom and keep an eye on that little tropical storm.

Brave soul. We were heading towards Atlanta GA and decided to go to Savannah GA because of the weather heading that way from Barry. Best of luck, remember you’re on wheels and you can leave any time! Stay safe

Beware of trees. Several trailers were damaged at Doswell by tree limbs
