Home on the road

The first night in our temporary home, a small travel trailer pulled by a big truck.

Both are rented for this phase of the journey, to give us a chance to see whether we can handle towing a trailer or whether a self-contained RV would be a better fit. My priority is to be able to park the house in a scenic spot and have a separate vehicle to take out on excursions. My traveling companion is skeptical of our ability to handle the highway towing a house behind us. So far, so good, but I haven't had to back the thing up yet.

We spent the night in a pull-through site in Tanner, Alabama, in an RV park right by the side of the highway. Today we're off to Decatur, Ala., site of a significant Civil War battle, then on to a more scenic (and quieter) campground.
