We had a very easy drive of less than two hours
but first, we need to do a little motor home maintenance.
New House Batteries at Camping World
may as well stop postponing this little chore. . .
Dave discovered that we were passing right by Camping World
on our way to the RV park in Madison. . .
and since the “house batteries” we needed to replace
were the same price there as other places he had checked,
may as well stop by and let them take care of it. . .

and climbing 46 more steps, and 11 spiral staircase steps
to the outside observation deck. . .SCORE!
