Kingsland, GA in November

Well, I made it to Jonathan's in Kingsland Ga.  It was a tough start which consisted of a stop in the Freightliner in Knoxville.  My engine light came on as I was going to leave on Saturday morning.  Talked to the Sprinter hot line and they advised to wait until it could be checked out.

Freightliner of Knoxville is a nice place and nice people.  Their RV lounge area had wonderful recliners and a TV BUT, they are not pet friendly.  So Sedona and I had to wait outside in the car for the entire visit.  I was able to get checked out and on my way around 2 pm.  Everything, including hard to find windshield wipers, was fixed and all I had to pay was for the wipers, the original warranty kicked in.  Yippee, good news.  Let's see ERG valve (Margie diagnosed), turbo resonator and a couple of other things.  Runs like a dream.

We head down I75 and by the time I got to Cartersville GA it was beginning to get heavy traffic on the interstate so I pulled off at the Walmart and checked to make sure I could stay there, bought a few items and settled down for the evening.  MY FIRST time staying in Walmart.  I had thought about it a couple times before but just never did.  I woke up about 3:30 am and decided to hit the road.  I wanted to stay out of traffic, however I feel more comfortable in the Whim navigating through traffic.

I'm heading up to Tybee Island for a few days to stay with my friends from TN and will be staying in their condo.  Whim will remain in Jonathan's driveway, which fits so much better than Somewhere.  Then Jonathan, Taylor and I have decided to enjoy Thanksgiving together and then I'll head on south to Citrus Ridge.  Too bad that I have to pay for the month of Nov at Citrus Ridge but that's the deal I made with the owners of the lot and I stick to my word.

Do you want us to put your table on your empty lot before we leave? Our renters arrive on November 22 and I don't want them to think the table is theirs. I'll cancel you out for the mystery lunch and welcome back party. Guess we'll see you in December. Hope your mechanical problems are behind you now. Enjoy Tybee.
