Once settled into our campsite, we got in a visit with Cam, Amy and the twins. They are over two years old now, and while they don't have much of a vocabulary, they have plenty to say. I don't understand a word of it. We brought books and a new bowling set as gifts for them. I'm sure the parents were thrilled to have us bring in more stuff...

Ready for engine work.
On Friday, July 31st, Wayne had bloodwork done for his 3-month medical follow-up to see if the cholesterol lowering medication was doing its job. A quick check from the doctor on Tuesday of the next week reports all is well. Hallajuah.
Our Monday morning appointment for engine repair at Cumberland International got pushed back to Tuesday when the Cummins mechanic took an unplanned vacation day. Finally, at 8 o'clock Tuesday morning, August 4th, we pulled Endie into the bay for diagnostics. That was followed by three days of waiting for parts to arrive.
Monday, August 10th, the engine work was to be done, but to our dismay the wrong parts were ordered. Another few days of waiting and then, on Wednesday, the major Cummins engine work was completed. (Interesting how delivery of these parts took only one day but that's another story.)

|Most of Cumberland International's diesel work is done on trucks though they do motorhome engine repairs too.
Their motorhome business won't grow without hookups and some overnight parking spaces though, I'm afraid.
|When the engine work was finished, we stopped by American Tire in Murfreesboro for an all around tire check.
Wayne keeps a close watch on the tires and will replace them before next summer's travel. For for now, we are officially Good to Go!
While at Nashville I-24 Campground, we discovered a new favorite site and relocated into it. It has a bit more shade and privacy than the ones we usually reserve. Good for summer!
Lexie and Ozzie like being at Nashville I-24 Campground as they get to play with Molly, Donna's dog and they have the run of the office and small apartment. Donna and I plan "play dates" for them while we visit.
Lexie and Ozzie also gets gobs of treats when they visit Donna and Molly.....
