Today has been a long, long day. We got all hooked up and left Pat's Place at around 9 this morning - promising we'd be back this direction next winter - we will miss her, it's been such fun spending time at Lone Cedar Ranch with her and the parade of family and friends who've come through - but, it's time for us to be movin' on, so, we headed out and north, expecting to get to Hilton Head Island for dinner with Cousins Janet and Bob by 3:30 or 4:00 p.m.
But "Satellite Sally's" (our GPS) ETA was not to be - we stopped for lunch soon after getting into Georgia, and Greg went out for one of his usual "kick and inspect" walk-arounds - when he came back in, he announced that the left rear tire on the tow dolly (yes, the one we replaced after having had a blowout a year ago now!) had a big bulge in it, and we didn't dare go on with the car loaded. So, after eating lunch, I searched online and on Sally, looking for any place that might have a replacement tire. After calling about six different places, we finally found one, about two miles away, that had the right size tire in stock. Greg unloaded the car, rather than leave weight on the dolly tire, and I followed him to the tire place in St
However, we were extremely optimistic with that - as we are sitting in miserable traffic - Friday night rush hour compounded by construction and a freeway cut down to 2 lanes in each direction brought us pretty much to a screeching halt, and we're now hoping to get to the motorcoach resort before their 7:30 deadline (if we arrive after 7:30, we have to stay in an overflow/holding space, without hookups, even though we'd be paying for them for the night! It's bound to be a late supper and a late night - and we've promised ourselves we won't travel on a Friday again!
