'11/#20 I HATE Jello

The last day in Marion didn't start off well. If you have been following us for the past year you remember the time we spent in Elkhart having some work done on our rig. The floor needed replacing which cost us quite a bit & took way longer than it should have but it was done & over with. Or so we thought. As we were getting ready to leave NC we noticed the new floor was falling apart. Some irate calls to the repair shop & we rerouted our trip from Tennessee to Indiana. Not what we wanted to do but something we had to do. The shop knew we were upset & that we had a schedule to keep so the job was assessed & started right away with their best workers. It appears that the materials supplied to the shop were defective & that it would be repaired in a few days.

I started this blog 2 days ago but just couldn't keep my head in it to finish. Now I am back. Everything was fixed & we were on our way Friday around noon. We put a lot of miles behind us for such a late start. Tonight will be another night at Walmart & with an early start we hope to reach Pigeon Forge Saturday afternoon.

After a long day, including some horrendous traffic through Cincinnati that Mary got stuck behind the wheel for, neither one of us wanted to cook. So what could we do? Well there is a Papa Johns about 200' from where we are parked soooooo. Then with belly's full we did the Internet thing. You know, e-mails & blogs & Facebook & news & weather. Soon it will be time to go to bed & get some well deserved sleep. Once again we will be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the interstate. It's either that or trains when it comes to RVing.

Now that I look at it, it wasn't much of a blog to take 2 days to write but here it is, from our home at Walmart outside Lexington KY because......

Home is where we park it,

  1. just glad to know that you're on your way to see Dolly @ Dollywood now. Have fun, be careful and thanks for updating us! Derek

  2. Everybody that knows me ( It's Mary) knows that Frank sugar coated the whole going back to Elkhart. I was very ANGRY.....and those guys knew it when I walked into their repair shop. I am happy to report that they did go above and beyond what they had to do....but then I think they were all sick and tired of looking at me...and hearing me bitch daily. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.
    I just had to add my part to the blog.....
