Goin' South

From the DC area, we made our way south in time to take care of a few chores and going on to Auburn. The ride through the Shenandoah Valley was nice and the volitle weather provided some really nice late afternoon sunlight scenery.  The photos here just don't do justice to the view.
Beautiful skies welcomed us back to the south.

Wayne is due for blood work and a visit to the doctor, who has been watching the cholesterol level for a while. There's even been talk of taking medication...  The walks we take in the evening along with the improved diet (and reduced pizza) might be paying off as the cholesterol level is down and so is his weight. No talk of medications this time. That's good.

Our next chore was to have the satellite people install the upgrade to our system that will allow easier location of the Directv signal when we're traveling. We'll take the coach to Cullum Maxey for a few repairs too, including the ice maker and the tow plate we broke when turning around at the wrong entry to Wheel-In Campground at Indiana, Pennsylvania and having the inverter checked and possibly repaired.  There is a short list of other, smaller repairs we ask about...

We stayed two nights at Two Rivers Campground on Music Valley Drive.  When they filled for the weekend (we were day-at-a-time) we moved up to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground where we got a better site and a better rate.

The whole Cullum Maxey experience was a bad one and we left Nashville a full week later with nothing repaired except the tow plate. Our bill was over $300 -- we mark through them as a repair location.  Fortunately we did manage to take care of several other projects while we were there.
