Day 238, Friday, March 30, 2018 - Bolding Mill COE Campground, Gainesville, GA, Day 9

Friday, March 30, 2018 - Bolding Mill COE Campground, Gainesville, GA, Day 9 - 0 Miles, 6,627.4 Towing Miles For the Trip

Not much happening today. I changed the sheets on the bed, which gave me enough laundry for a trip to the other end of the campground. No one was using the machine when I got there, but they lined up after I started. While it is nice to have an inexpensive laundry in the campground, one machine for 97 campsites keeps it busy. I did two loads, combining them with two sets of quarters in the dryer, so I left 20 minutes of dryer time for the person after me.

I have to admit that after dinner last night, I started a walk, but the rain poured down, so I watched a movie on my iPad. Mostly to see if it could be done using the AT&T Mobley unlimited cell modem, but also to spend a few minutes in the "real" world. As I mentioned, the last movie I watched in a theatre was the second Lord of the Rings.

So, Jack Reacher - Never Go Back was a free movie with my Amazon Prime membership. Now I have read every one of Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels, starting with the first (Killing Floor), in 1997. There is absolutely no way that Tom Cruise could ever fit my imagination (and Lee Child's description, for that matter) of Jack Reacher, even with short actresses & well planned camera angles. Tom Cruise is not 6'5" tall! Still, I have to admit I enjoyed the movie. All I had to do is tell myself that it was an adventure movie with a different lead character.

Back to today. A beautiful day, although very windy. Around 4:00 I made a run to town for gas & Publix for another Boston Market Orange Chicken, and a Newman's Own 4 Cheese Pizza for dinner. I did some searching for the next stop (leaving Sunday) and I think I'll try for a first come site at Davidson River Forest Service Campground in North Carolina. It is in the Pisgah National Forest & there seems to be lots of waterfalls in the area.
