Aventures in "new to us", Open Road
We purchased this 2005 Allegro Open Road, 17,355 miles starter coach 3 weeks ago from an individual owner. With the help of the more experienced owners on this forum we geared up for the road. We started out Wednesday 11/6/2013 following my daughter and her Bluegrass band "Della Mae" on a SE tour that began the first show in Awendaw S.C. and different city each evening, Bloomingdale Ga. Thur. Jacksonville Fl. Fri. and wound at the" Riverhawk Music Festival" Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville Fl.
Great trip, met a lot of new friends ,learned a lot about our coach and this new lifestyle. As the band loaded up Sat. night to head back to Nashville Tn. we hung out and enjoyed the rest of the show and touring the campground looking at all the other different coaches and talking to owners. Sunday we got up and headed back towards Charlotte N.C. the return trip went real well, what I call a very successful trip.
Oh.... almost forgot, coming into Jackson Ville Friday night, my wife driving and feeling great about how well she did on her first drive on the big highway "I95", as a matter of fact just finished bragging about it,...we heard tires squalling and then a thump and felt a jar in the rear. A Honda Accord got away from a young lady, hit two other vehicles and then hit us in the rear quarter knocking our rear cap loose and banging up the basement door for water and electric hookup, Gorilla Tape works wonders. All good, no one hurt, coach drivable didn't hamper the fun.
Thanks to all the friendly folks on this forum for help, advice and acceptance of newbies. Great travels to you and yours.
