Okay, the plan was to break camp and leave Hardeeville around noon on Sunday. Yes, the plan “was.”
Randy went out around 8:30am to check the pressure in the tires. He found that one of the right rear tires on the truck was almost flat. Apparently, it picked up a nail or something. We figured we'd have to postpone leaving because it was Sunday and there'd be nothing open. Thankfully, we were wrong. Firestone was open and could fix the tire right away. YAY!
Randy got himself out the door and was back about 11am with a fixed tire. We continued with our breaking camp routine and pulled out of the park about 1pm. Not too bad, just an hour later than we'd originally wanted to leave. We were headed for a Cracker Barrel in Tallahassee to spend the night.
All was going well and we left I-16 and headed south on I-95. And that's where it all went kaBAM! Literally. It happened so fast, I thought we'd run over something. Well, we did. A deer. AFTER it ran into us first. Very scary.
Randy pulled over onto the shoulder so we could see what exactly happened and the damage incurred. Boy, were we lucky. Yes, there was damage.
Yes, it's gonna be a pain getting it fixed. But, it could have been so much worse. The truck is drivable. The damage to the RV is minimal, so that's good. And we are okay. No damage to us. We were thanking God for His protection, I'll tell you.
We'll get to see how well our insurance company takes care of us!
We did get to that CB in Tallahassee, sometime between 7:00 & 7:30pm. We were both beat. Ate some egg salad I had fixed and climbed into bed.
This morning we got up around 7am, had breakfast at CB and hit the road a little past 8am. Gratefully, we had an easy, uneventful trip to the Plantation in Summerdale, AL. Thanks to the change from Eastern to Central time, we arrived about noon.
We were welcomed by Dick & Pat, Bob, and Darrell & Judy. J stopped by, too. It's so nice to be “home.” After getting set up, we spent some time catching up with Dick & Pat. Then, it was on to dinner at Darrell & Judy's. They were kind enough to feed us so we wouldn't have to cook on a travel day. And boy, was it yummy! Judy made her famous lasagne and brownies.
Now it's time for the weather to warm up!
Until the next time . . .
