Wed. Oct 26th, Getting much warmer!

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, 
 since August 2006

Todays Journey 393 miles (632 kms)

We don't usually travel that much in one day but we made two days into one with a
 three hour stop in the morning and wanting warm weather sooner.

        Overnight at Walmart in La Grange Kentucky, very warm, windows open and a good nights sleep. In the morning a huge truck and trailer beside us, was very impressive.

       We were up early, coffees and computing then a walk into the Walmart for a few things at 6 am, nice thats it open 24 hrs.
love the rest areas

        Then we are on the road 7 am to get thru Louisville before rush hour, to Bowling Green Kentucky to see if we can get some work done on our coach (sway bar bushings). We changed time zones and got there at 8:30 am instead of 9:30am (gained an hour). Well they don't do that work there so he sent us to a local Ford Dealer (Greenwood Ford). They were very helpful, sent a mechanic to check what we need then checked for availability of the parts. At least a week for delivery so he advised us to carry on, too bad  it was a very friendly dealer.
        Now its 11 a.m. new time, so we made a bite to eat and decided to keep heading south to Birmingham Alabama. A great day for driving, getting hotter as we go shorts, t shirts, sandals listen to tunes then finally had to turn on our air conditioner it was 95 and humid in our coach. (sorry cold people !) The sights are good and less leaves are turning color as we get further south.

        We passed by Nashville with the Batman towers in the distance, no need to stop this time, been there a few times.
        Even when we entered Alabama the cotton fields are everywhere always a welcome sight every time we see them.

        Now in Birmigham we fueled up only $3:17 a gallon (.83 cents a litre) with a Flying J card, love the prices. Arrived here at 4 pm parked  for the night, had a cool beverage and a simple supper of leftover seafood pasta for Suzie from the Olive Garden and hamburger helper for me.

        Oh did I mention I had to clean the bugs from the front of our coach twice today, (the downfall of hot weather), glad I have it well waxed, they wipe off very easy.
hot weather = bugs
        Now relax for a bit read, compute and watch a bit of tv then call it a night. Even a nice Flying J Sunset, not real scenic, but still nice.
nice red sky

  3. We were at the Corvette Museum this year, pretty neat! Brings back memories!

  4. Hey George and Suzie

    Sorry we have not been able to stay in touch more, but our last two parks have had lousy WiFi. I am pretty sure we are going to get a verizon stick or something.

    Stay safe, and see you one of these days, for sure ... TnT
