Lake Allatoona

1st Night with RV, Camping Next to Dead Body

This is part of my month-long Road Trip! HackerChick style

Our one day delay turned into two days… and then three. We were getting pretty sick of of our swank Atlanta hotel room, anxious to get out on the road to start the real part of our adventure.

But, finally finally finally we pick up our beautiful RV and off we go! We were wicked psyched!

We, of course, know diddly squat about RVs and how to find good places to camp. We were warned that we’d need to book out all of our campsites in advance. But, screw that. Obviously. This is about spontaneity and going wherever the road takes us.

First night: the road takes us to Kennesaw, GA to pick up our RV. So we track down a nearby marina where we can camp right on the beautiful Lake Allatoona.

The campground is quiet, peaceful, lovely. We spend the evening outside at a picnic table taking in nature and enjoying the excitement of our first night of glamping, and sleep like babies in the RV bed – which is surprisingly comfortable.

Next morning. Wake up. Check our phones (because, well, old habits die hard) only to find this headline:

Man’s body recovered in Lake Allatoona

The body of a 24-year-old man was recovered Wednesday afternoon from Lake Allatoona, officials said.

Wait. Lake Allatoona – that sounds familiar. Isn’t that…?

Well, I guess our adventure has officially started.
