I didn't leave behind our motorcycle, though. Many wonderful country roads exist all around Thurmond Lake, and I often thought what a great place it would be to ride a motorcycle. Now that thought will become reality. Don't worry, I'll be very careful, with all the bright yellow safety gear I ride in, I look like a giant Minion.
I rented a U-Haul trailer to carry the motorcycle and pulled it behind the Journey. Marti followed, driving our car.
I missed having her by my side in the Journey, but at least she didn't have to hear that annoying alarm whistle caused by the defective wiring harness in the dashboard. I found that if I kept listening to some Carpenter's CDs loud enough, Karen's voice pretty much drowned the noise out. Now if I can just get her songs out of my head when I try to sleep at night... ;c)
We did the drive in an unusually leisurely pace for us, taking all of three days. We overnighted in two Flying Js, one in PA and one in NC. Good thing we stopped early in PA the first day, all the RV slots had been taken up by bobtail trucks (tractor trailers without their trailer attached).
Fortunately, we found a spot along the edge of the parking lot.
On the third day, we arrived and settled in to our spot at the COE's Volunteer Village. We'll be here for an open ended time over the winter months doing all kinds of volunteer work, which we enjoy.
As an added bonus, we're just a little over an hour away from our two grandsons, Andrew and Owen. We're looking forward to seeing them, it's been a while. Fulltime RV life is good. :c)
