Getting Ready Early, SMI Update and Back To Mike And Gina's

Moncure, NC

54 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s. Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.

Another quiet day here at the Dickens RV Park. I had neighbors for a few days, but they both left yesterday and now there's only a few RV in this section. Jim did a few things outside to start getting me ready to head to Virginia Beach. You see, as of tomorrow, the bottom is going to drop out of the temperatures around here and they're forecasting a high temperature of mid 50's and lows in the mid 30's for the next 3 days. : (  And Friday and Saturday, the forecast also includes a 40% to 50% chance of rain, so he thought he better get some of the pre travel stuff done early.

Linda had to call her doctor up in Illinois yesterday to find out how the blood test turned out, (it was fine), and get a new prescription for one of her meds. So, until the doctor called the prescription in to the drug store, they couldn't go and get her meds. That meant they had to wait and will have go sometime today.

Oh, I wanted to give you an update on the SMI Air Force One toad brake system that has been installed on me and CLT. I haven't towed CLT real far and we haven't been in any mountains, but I have had to make a couple of quick stops, for changing stop lights, and so far, I'm really pleased with the SMI unit.

It seems to be working as advertised and I can definitely feel CLT helping to stop us when Jim applies my brakes, (especially when making a quick stop).  It's really easy for Jim to hook up. There's just a small air hose that goes between CLT and myself, along with a little cable to the break-away switch, so there is very little difference in the hook-up time.

So far, so good. : )

Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to Mike and Gina's again last evening for dinner. Linda got busy helping Brenna and Savanna with a project so they didn't get back here until almost 9:00. Tonight, tomorrow and Saturday, Mike and his family are going to be busy so Jim and Linda won't be seeing them until Sunday. Then they'll go over to Mike and Gina's sometime in the afternoon and then go out to eat at a restaurant for dinner.

It's hard to believe that we've been here almost 2 weeks already. It's time for us to head to Virginia Beach though and then head South before the weather gets too nasty up here. I think by the time we get down to Florida, we'll have had enough cold weather and will enjoy the warmth. ; )

Did you know that the first miniature golf course was built in Fayetteville, NC?

  1. I realy like Oxy having an Air Force One. This is the third car I've pulled with one and think it is the best.
