The Coffee Cup is back home in her Javaport after spending 42 days up at Raccoon Holler. We sure did have a grand time camping and making up for all the lost time because of water leaks. We thought we had them all taken care of, but in fact, I found a wet mattress, pillows, and sheets when I went back over Memorial Day Weekend.
Cousin Rob suggested we put his Easy-Up over The Cup to keep any more water intrusion at bay. I even went so far as to buy a tarp, cut it in half, and attach it underneath the tent with zip ties. I simply dropped the panels down before leaving each time for home. It did the trick and we stayed dry for the next two months!
|The blue tent was the perfect solution for leaks!|

|Nighttime was a festive time in site 86|

In early June, Good Gollie Miss Mollie the golf cart was added to our Holler family. It didn't take long to realize how convenient she would be when we went over to Rob and Trisha's for meals or taking garbage to the dumpster or enjoying an evening cruise around the campground to look at the lights. Rob designed some stickers for our inaugural season!

We enjoyed several outstanding meals in June and July with the Cousins . . . Memorial Weekend, Seafood Supper, 4th of July ribs extravaganza, and so many more shared meals.

|BLTs & cucumber sandwiches|

Gracie and Sophie enjoyed their time in The Holler too with many sleepovers. It was good to have Bec join us!

All in all, I had a terrific time camping in The Coffee Cup during Part I of our season in The Holler. Tomorrow Rob and I pull out bright and early for the big trip to Hohenwald, TN where I will take delivery of Mollie (Murphy's Ollie) on Tuesday. Part II of our grand 2018 adventure will start then.
My sweet Coffee Cup is back home now with all her leaks fixed, looking forward to our next adventure together. Until then always remember . . .
