Well after frantically getting the house in order, working an extra day at work, we finally are at the airport. Only to realize that I forgot my camera! Then the plane is delayed to fix the A/C. They finally announce that it will be an hour at least before boarding. So Dan ran home to get the camera. Thank heavens! Even small miracles are wonderful!
... Much worse.
After lunch in Cherokee, on the other side of the Smokies, we drove into North Carolina, our 12th state this trip. Late afternoon, we made it to Lulu's brother's house just outside Charlotte and then had dinner with him and his wife Lisa in Charlotte.
After dinner, we drove on for another half hour to Kannapolis.
... It was all really interesting! Don joined Claudia and myself for my NASCAR Experience that Claudia gave for my birthday the month before. What an experience! The pictures tell the story. Thanks Don for some great photos! We met Don and Trish for great brunch along side Lake Norman. While on the road we decided that we weren't quite ready to go home ...
... We are back! Dad's there. He is so happy we are back! My heart almost bursts!
- Doctors appointments after Christmas. It's bad, but let's treat it. Let's treat this cancer! Let's swing for the fences and see what we can do. Dad has dementia (onset Alzheimer's and struggles to understand the cancer part of his life). Two rounds of Chemo are completed by the early part of January.
- Early January Dad is admitted to the hospital for pneumonia ...
... Nascar Hall of Fame, and Charlotte motor speedway. Actually, it was Bec's idea to do the drive in 2 shifts and have a day in Charlotte, so I have to thank her for thinking outside the box on that one.
We managed to split the driving pretty much 50/50 today so we are both a little road weary. No photos either. Photo's of being between 2 semi trailers on the interstate don't make for good viewing. I can assure you that tomorrows photos will make up for the lack of shots today.

We stop for a overnight stay, they charged us $45 a night for a place to park for 10 hours. Should have stayed in the Wallmart parking lot across the street. I always try to find a place that is not a KOA because they are all way over price.
