Well, it was an adventure.
I'm sitting here on this rainy day in Hunting Island State Park in SC. Getting here was tiring, being here is a wonderful thing. With my Mini in tow I left on the 6th, hoping to beat any kind of weather, but that luck ran out when I hit the NY-CT border. That's when the snow started coming down.
Semi heavy, but so clod it just blew around and the road was not so bad. By the time I was in PA I was in slush, though not so bad that I stopped the trip. It was slow, and white knuckled for most of that day. Wind played a roll also. This, all being my first drive of any long distance in my new to me 38 footer.
Obviously both my coach and my toad were a mess.
Stopped south of Harrisburg PA at a Wallyworld. The land of eternal daylight. uggg.
Second day I was on my way early, after some wallyworld shopping. This was not a fun day. Still in the very cold with snow flurries here and there, but the worst was the wind. More white knuckle driving. At a stop I decided to check my tire pressures due to the deep cold. All looked good but I had a few valves that were troublesome in making a seal and had to spend some nerve racking time making them behave. I worried about possible ice build up in them. Was so dam cold.
Obviously I did not get one of the valves sealed. That was fun! Not.
Front driver's side. Handled it OK, but it sure was a hard lesson learned. Was able to pull way over off the highway. Called Good Sam's. Fingers crossed.... and yes, purchasing their services way more then paid off for this one. I was fixed and off in just over an hour, no charge. I had a new spare, ... oh yea, all these tires are BRAND NEW, so this kinda sucked.
Stayed in a wallyworld again that night.
Third day. I had decided that I would divert my trip so to have a shorter drive. I'm really in no hurry. Just need to learn this. It was a great day. No wind, lots of warm feeling sun, and finally a destination chosen that I was excited about. Hunting Island State Park. Arrive about 3pm. Grin from ear to ear, .. chilly but I LOVE this place.
