No, we didn’t almost have an accident on our way home. As a matter of fact, the driving went well—even had a tail wind for a few hours. We ate lunch with the family on Saturday, sadly said our goodbyes and were on the road around 2:00 pm. We had an awesome ten days and enjoyed seeing everyone so much. However, it was time to let them get back into their routine.
We knew the Cary forecast on Saturday night was lower thirties which is concerning for the part of the plumbing in the PW that is on the outside. For some reason, we thought we would be better off driving for a few hours. I don’t know what we were thinking because we were driving toward the Smoky Mountains. When I checked low temperature for Ashville, it said 24 degrees! We didn’t want to continue to drive even higher into the mountains so we decided to make the best of it where we were.
I am not sure I got more than an hour sleep at a time because I kept jumping up and running a little water. Finally, around five o’clock Dan got up and we ran a hose from the inside hot water into the water holding tank. This was after we turned on the water and nothing came out for a few scary seconds. We did the hot water transfer a couple more times and then took off down the road.
Every fifteen minutes I jumped up and ran water. Only once did we have a delay but again it broke free. By 9:00 am, the weather warmed up and we decided to take a little detour off I40 on to the Blue Ridge Parkway. More tomorrow.
