Here we are literally on the geographic edge between piedmont foothills and the coastal plains. Once camp is set, we try not to let too much grass grow under our feet. Raven Rock State Park, Moncure, NC sounded like a good place to go for a walk. To our eyes the topography appears flat; not so when the mile long outcropping of rock requires more than sneakers. The Cape Fear River has time carved a deep trough on its way to the sea. Neverthless, the new visitor center entertained us on this drizzly day. Guess that will teach us to carry the appropriate shoes!
Corky found a nice RV site just out of the Raleigh-Durham metropolitan craziness. This allowed me to see my mom, baby Jacob, daughter, Amy, and sister, Julia. Prior to leaving Suffolk Katie and Maddie allowed JoJo to go trick or treating with them(only if I promised NOT to eat any of their candy)! We needed a social secretary to co-ordinate the last minute lunch and supper get togethers. Friends are special!! Thanks to all for good eats and good fellowship.
Life sometimes throws a curve ball - flexibility on the rebound is the challenge. So what's the matter? The cooling unit on the frig is konking out. Our flex is to change the route slightly, move quickly towards Nashville, Tn where we will spend +/- five days. It seems a technical person must determine the part needed, order it(not kept in stock anywhere-we have a side by side home size refrigerator/freezer), spend a couple hours with new installation. The good news is it JUST falls within warranty! The service center in Nashville is huge and the city is loaded with activities.
While crossing over and through the western NC mountains, Smokies, we anticipate a few snow showers. It will be fun to see again for one moment! Thankfully, daytime temps will have snow melting quickly. The Tracker & I are the caboose of this wagon train. Once over the Tennessee state line, the Tracker tow bar will be hooked onto the coach.
Stay tuned for Monday's arrival in Nashville, Tn!
