Lunch with friends in Opp, AL

Monday 3/12/2012

Deer Run RV Park

Troy, AL

Today we met our friends, John and Ginny, for lunch.
We originally met them at the 2010 RV-Dreams Rally in SC and have kept in touch since then.  They’ve acquired a Hitch Hiker 5th wheel and a GMC truck.  Right now they’re on an extended trip and are really enjoying themselves.
John and Ginny are presently staying at a park in northwest Florida, so we decided to meet at a Subway in Opp, AL, which is sort of halfway between.  We had lunch and enjoyed getting caught up on everything.  The time flew by as we talked and laughed and just had a great time with them.  Too soon it was time to head home, even though we could have probably sat and talked for several more hours.  It was really great seeing them again, even if it was for only a couple of hours.  Thanks again John and Ginny for lunch.
Time didn’t allow us to check out Opp, but I did read that the town’s slogan is “The City of OPPortunity”.  Perhaps some other time we can check out Opp as well as Andalusia, which is just west of Opp.
One of the many great things about this lifestyle is making new friends, and then meeting up with them again somewhere on down the road.


  1. Not to mention that they make a great excuse to go our for lunch or dinner. :-) Glad to see all your smiling faces and to see that Terri must be over her flu or whatever.

  2. One of the many bad things about this lifestyle is meeting new friends, going out to dinner and finding your clothes are getting tighter...

  3. We've found the more people we meet, the more we go out to eat! What's wrong with that picture?
