Tires, They Won't Rent Me A Site but Problem Solved

DeBary, FL.

53 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Partly cloudy in the morning...then considerable cloudiness with a chance of afternoon showers. Highs in the mid 70s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30 percent.

Jim's big project yesterday was to check tires.

The first thing to do, of course, was to get out the compressor and hose. After getting it ready he started on my tires, first on my left and then my right. I'm pleased to say that out of all of my tires, (8 of them), and after more than 2 months, only one was about 5 PSI low!!!  : )

After checking my tires, he checked and filled CLT's tires and then his bike's tires.

The other item he took care of was to call back Roland and Louise, (very good friends of theirs who visited us up in Rantoul this past summer and who are now down at at park in Frostproof, FL.), to see if I could get in their park for a few days. He had called them the other day and they said that they would check.

Well, guess what?  Even though they have sites sitting empty, they told Louise that they would not rent a site to anyone for less than a week!!!! : (   That won't work for us this year because Jim has made reservation at another park, (starting on the 28th).

Needless to say, Roland and Louise were very disappointed and so were Jim and Linda. : (

Anyway, after Jim and Roland hung up, Jim got on the Internet, found another park that is only a few miles from Roland and Louise's park and made a reservation there!! 

They were very happy to rent me a site for less than a week!!!!! : )

Jim called Roland back and told him the good news. Now when we leave here, we're heading to the Lakemont Ridge Home & RV Park in Frostproof for 5 days before heading to Thonotosassa, FL to spend some time with the "Illinois Bunch".

After that, we start heading out West. : )

For dinner, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to the Pier 16 seafood restaurant in Orange City. They hadn't been there this year yet and always enjoy eating there. Again, both the food and service were very good.

Did you know that on this date in 1957 the first, non-stop, around-the-world, jet flight came to an end at Riverside, CA? The plane was refueled in mid-flight by huge aerial tankers.
