The New Fridge and Camping Fun

We decided to get an apartment sized refrigerator at Best Buy while staying at Lake Aire campground just outside of Charleston, SC.  We were tired of spending several dollars each day on bags of ice, and the RV fridge we had planned to use would have been too much of a hassle to finish the installation in a safe fashon. 

The girls had fun playing with the headphones while at Best Buy, Jody had fun loading the fridge on the roof of “Blondie” (our Mercedes wagon) to haul back to the bus.

You will also see the smallest frogs/toads we have ever seen.  There were hundreds of them on a sand bar beside the lake at Lake Aire.  The girls had fun catching them and chasing them around the sand bar.  The pool is the one at the campground, if you click on the image you can see the bus in the background.


Scholl Bus Letters

Here are the close up shots of the lettering on the bus. We wanted to go with something close to the original bus font, but had to change the lettering to really make it a Scholl Bus. I offset the letters a little bit on Scholl to make it stand out a little, and it has been working. Everyone has been saying how it catches their eye and they have to think about why it is not spelled correctly.

The first picture is Gravy Scholl looking out HER window. She is so funny watching everyone go by from her post, she adds a lot to the adventure for sure…


Heading out of the Mountains

When we first left the mountains we stayed at a park in Old Fort, NC.  We had this whole park to ourselves which was a great way to start things off.  We enjoyed the warmer weather and greater presence of spring.  The Bus still needed some of Jody’s handiwork and Gravy snuggled up to be his helper as the work on the water tank and storage pipe for the sink water took shape.  The girls were delighted to discover it was toad mating season at the pond.  Gravy was the first to catch a toad and then the girls took over the specimen collection department. We collected some eggs in a jar to watch their development.
