Made it to TN

Driving through southern GA at sunset, before the rain hit.
Just a quick note for those not on Facebook, we had an uneventful and comfortable flight back to the US. No issues picking up our rental car, spent two days with family in Vero Beach before heading north to our property in Tennessee. No major traffic since we left on Sunday, no major weather issues either.

We arrived around 5:30 on Monday, batteries dead on the Freightliner. Severe storms fried the trickle charger but we could still get inside the RV. Once inside...well, almost wished I wasn't. Not enough ventilation had left a coat of mildew in areas close to the windows or down close to the floor. While Stu worked on connecting everything outside and draining the anti-freeze, I started cleaning inside.

We had left mouse bait inside and they had about emptied it out, leaving little destruction and lots of turds. Stu has more work to plug entry spots next year. LOL!

Tuesday was errand day, paid the deposit for turning on our water, put in the order to turn on our phone, did some shopping. Yeah, there was the sticker shock. Spent $400 between groceries and a few toiletry items. Gulp! At least Stu had food while I am away till Monday. ;)

Ran into Cookeville for a movie, our first in nine months. Buttered popcorn (for me) - YUM! Poured while we were inside, severe weather warnings and we were watching "Into the Storm". [giggle]

I'm on my way to the Writers' Police Academy conference...EXCITED!!!


Leaving on a jet plane...


Heading out today...4 hour drive from Cuenca to Guayaquil, plane leaves close to midnight, arrive in Miami around 4am. Work our way through customs, pick up our rental car and get outta Miami quickly! Breakfast stop, then arrive in Vero Beach around 10-11ish. Two days with family before driving back to TN.

Not sure when the next blog will be! ;)
