Okay, when I said it was time for a vacation, I meant it. We were in Belmont a few weeks, and in our life style, that is a long time. So we are now at Forest lake. That is in North Carolina near Advance.
The RV Park is located on what was once part of the Cooleemee Cotton and Tobacco Plantation. It is sorta between Lexington and Winson-Salem, NC. close to the Yadkin River.
Our house had a tire that was getting iffy, and showing some steel belt, so we had to stop and have it changed. We had an older tire with good tread to replace it.
Some stories have a good ending. The man at a Pilot truck stop said use this number the man is right down the road, he will take care of it. Sherry called, the man said $105 to change the tire. I will be right out. later he called sand said I am at Pilot, where are you? He was in a town 30 miles away at another Pilot. He would come on up the interstate, but it would be $120. We decided to wait.
We stopped at Eller’s diesel service to get the rubber changed. You see the Toad over there waiting for it’s ride to be fixed. Two young men said, back her in, we will drop the others and take care of it.
When they finished they said, “$35.00”. Of course we gave them a good tip. Hooked up the Toad and were on our way after a big thank you from the guys.
I love the road, we have slowed down some. There was a time we were in a different area every couple weeks. I miss that.
Look what sherry shot!
This is a 1940 Ford Tudor. I prefer to see them rolling, but they are beautiful even on a trailer.
Hard to tell the ‘39 & ‘40’. I do it by the tail light.

Anyway, we had to get out of Dodge for a little while. We are just marking time until the Passports come back for our sons, and also for Grandson Luke to graduate. Then we head first to Paula’s area(San Antonio), then to Del Rio. AND THEN Parts unknown.
(I love planning a long trip). I would hate it if we had to decide what to pack and where we were going to stay.
But we are home now, out in the woods, yep, we usually have a cup of coffee once we are set up,
Today? Today we are enjoying some Frog Fuel from the Holy Cow Coffee Company. That is Louis’s company. he comments on the Blog and is a master of old car info.
The coffee smells and tastes good.
Being out in the woods is like, well, it is like a breath of fresh air.
