Wednesday March 13, 2019 Happy Hump Day!
We call Roadside Assistance who sends a tow truck and changes our tire to the spare. He advises us that we should replace a couple of our tires to newer ones. We head to Walmart in the next town, who can’t do anything for us but to go to Tire Discounters. After some searching we find it and have two new tires put on.
We finally get to the KOA in Perry and Ray doubts his decision not to put four new ones on.
We leave Perry FL and head to the Panhandle where Ray’s mom, Betty, winters in Destin. The closest KOA we can get is in Milton about an hour away. The weather is cooler and cloudy but we are glad to see a familiar face. Betty and I go to church Sunday morning. Ray tells his Mom that I have been anxious to go to church for a couple of weeks now (it is Lent) and I said it was because I keep yelling “Holy Jesus”. Hahahaha I swear there had to have been a thousand people at this church! How reassuring that so many people are full with Faith. We have a lovely lunch seaside and visit in the afternoon. We make a plan to go to the beach tomorrow.
Monday is so foggy we can hardly see the dunes on the Emerald Coast. Plan B…shopping at the Premium Outlets with great success. Unfortunately we don’t go to the beach, as it is rainy and still quite foggy. We finish our day with a nice supper and a super hug.
Tuesday March 12thwe know we are heading for home. We will head to the KOA Chattanooga/Cleveland. We are no sooner on the road, no Alabama, we have another flat tire on the trailer. You have got to be kidding me!!!!! Ray is now cursing that he did not put four new tires on. As it turns out, it is the same tire we replaced!! We call Road Assistance again. Have them speed dial. In the mean time, a big black guardian angel stops to assist us. He has everything we need to change the tire. “How much” as we are running low on US cash. “Whateva ya’all can pay.” God Love him. He had us on our way in 20 minutes….cancelled the tow truck but not before Amber called us back to make sure everything was good.
We go see the Jayco dealer as we wondered if there was something wrong with the axel. Nope, just bad luck. He sends us to Active Tires where we installed four new tires from Jeff Free 😀 A great Alabama gentleman who heard our tales of whoa and was wiling to find food stamps for us. HA HA
We settle into the KOA , have a late supper and pray for a non eventful trip back to Canada.
