Starting to head toward home. We got up at 7:30a this morning to make our break out of town – still didn’t get on the road until a little after 9a. Fortunately we gained an hour back today, and we spent the extra time on the road.
About 45 minutes after getting on our way, the indicator lights on the Jeep brake monitor started flashing. We pulled over at a grocery store and checked things out in the Jeep, and everything seemed fine. The manual for the brake did not list an error for that set of lights. So, we unplugged the monitor and plugged it back in and it seemed to fix everything.
We’ve committed to getting home on July 28th. Kim and I entered a charity tennis tournament that starts on the 29th, and we don’t want to forfeit our entry fee. We are shaving time off by going about 100 miles more a day than our plan. This should shave off enough days to get us home in time.
The campground we are at tonight has nice level sites, but there really isn’t much for the kids to do here. We kicked them out of the rig when we go here and there was just a two person swing under a tree for them to go play with. Kim and I hit the laundry room – we hadn’t done laundry since Myrtle Beach and we all were running out of clothes.
Tomorrow we should be going through Alabama and Mississippi before stopping in the middle of Louisiana somewhere, and then we’ll be on to the Dallas area the next day!
