We've been enjoying a trip back to the mountains for the fall color. Internet coverage has been erratic, so I'm just now getting a post done.
Its been a great trip so far in our new "MAC." Dear old Max (my 1999 Roadtrek lovingly called Max for Mobile Art Escape") had been sold to folks whom we hope will enjoy him for years to come. We enlarged a bit so Michael doesn't bump his head, and also to something newer: a 2010 Sprinter-based RV. Its a diesel that gets 20 mpg. To continue the tradition, we have named her MAC (for Mobile Art Condo) - but also from the childrens' clapping rhyme Ms. Mary Mack "all dressed in black... "There are have been some items to be fixed, but luckily still covered by warranty. We keep saying "We love it - when everything works..." Hopefully we've gotten the kinks out now.
So we poked around Brevard a few days and then went down to the Georgia mountains for a few days - hoping it would be a bit warmer. It was, but we prefer the Davidson River campground near Brevard, so we went back. Today we are on route home, so are staying over at the Lake Norman State Park (near the Dodge dealer where we had some warranty work done).
Today I awoke to chilly (36 degrees!) air and now its clouded over, so I set up a little studio in the "lounge area" in the back of MAC and worked on some small paintings. Kinda cozy and fun.
