Traveling ... Monday, July 25, 2016

Early to bed, early to rise! We were up at 3 ... watched Ray Donovan ... and we're on the road by 6:45. It was 67F and clear. Just after we got on I-95, a red light came on the dash look like a lightning bolt. I got out the owner's manual and indeed it indicated a possible battery terminal or something of that nature might be loose. Great. So we found a rest area, walked the dogs and fortunately it was still cool (and shady) at the rest area! Mark cleaned and tightened the terminals ... FIXED! Yay. Egad! Mark's even a truck mechanic!

Robbie and BeeZee jumped out of their beds ... "bed heads!"
What's dad doing under that steaming hood?

Once in a long while Mark hears from dear son Matt. It seems Matt is thinking about a career change. For the past few years he has been painting, doing photofinishers and crown molding's with his ex-brother-in-law Chris. It seems he feels he has gone as far as he can with this particular job. His half-brother, Fred is now a manager at a towing company and would like to give Matt the opportunity to become a tow truck operator. Of course he will have to take training and get a new CDL license. With two young daughters and a wife, he needs a job with growth potential.  At age 27, reality is setting in. Yep, I bet he is revisiting prior offers and trying to kick his own butt. LOL

Our drive was very easy today with light traffic. At 1 o'clock it was 100° in South Carolina. We decided to get off the road  at pulled into Barnyard RV Park. It's lovely and clean with reliable 50 amp power. Tomorrow, we will finish our drive into Asheville, less than 160 miles. Pam arrived earlier today into Asheville and is visiting with Danny and Jackson tonight. We are looking forward to seeing her tomorrow. Our nephew Jonathan will be by to visit us tomorrow too! 

That's it for tonight. Ta Ta.
