Pre-Christmas Traffic vs Campground Critters

My plan for today was to head to Publix for a few groceries. Once I realized it was the weekend before Christmas... I opted not to go anywhere! Getting groceries was just an excuse anyway. I didn't really need anything. I just wanted to get out-n-about for a while. But Monday works for me! Pre-Christmas… Continue reading Pre-Christmas Traffic vs Campground Critters
