Safe and Sound in Myrtle Beach!!

Had a wonderful travel day today-excellent weather. Not much sleep last night tho..Miss Lilly would not settle down she had me up most of the night. I think its 3 full driving days and her sleeping on the sofa in travel. She and Tucker will get a good long walk tonight for sure.

We left Fredericksburg VA around 8am this morning and motored toward Myrtle Beach, arriving around 4pm. The sun was shining and the farther we drove the greener the pastures and grass was. We started peeling off the sweat shirts, and my feet were finally warm. It was 64 degrees upon our arrival. I might even get to sleep with the window open in the bedroom tonight!! Ossumer purred right along and worked like a charm. 

Upon arrival our jacks were making a grinding noise as we lowered them. They weren't doing that yesterday..we are wondering if maybe they are full of road grime-but we are not going to worry about that right now..they are down and will come up no problem Tuesday, so once we arrive in Fl we will look into having them checked out. Anyone ever experience this? Or does it sound familiar?

Our friends Cathy and Brent who live in NC are here for a month in their condo on the beach, and we will be meeting up with them tonight and spending NYs with them also. We will be here until Tuesday, then head for Fl.

Have a super evening and for those of you in travel---be safe out there.

“Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay, some laugh with you, some at you, some didn't come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would stay and help clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the ones who didn't even make the mess: ) How true this is!!! “

  6. And I thought we were the only ones that covered long distances in a day.

    Glad to see you've escaped!

    As for your jacks, I'd check the fluid level in the pump tank. Might be a little low making the pump noisy. Check your owners manual for location and fluid type.

    Enjoy that warm weather, you've waited long enough to get there. FL is a favorite place for us, too.

  7. Yeah! Your first destination is now 'un fait accompli." Enjoy!

  8. Yea, you are finally "south" for the winter! Where in Florida are you staying for the winter?

  9. Happy New Years for sure, nice you are finally having warm sunny weather, about time! Enjoy every minute of it. Our jacks go down nicely but sometimes one does not want to retract, a block and pry bar and is fine for a few months.

  10. You're getting closer!!! I can't wait to play shuffleboard!
