11/6/14 Thursday in Jackson Springs, NC (Sycamore Lodge-ROD)
I worked on the blog and a health questionnaire for my insurance company. John got his drawer bracket replaced, then checked the air in a CRV tire. Our tire pressure monitor had been giving a low reading on that tire, but it was actually just fine. I got my clock radio manual out to find out how to set the time. During that time John simply figured it out and reset the time. Oh well, now I have a copy of the instructions for when I need to reset it. Then I hammered the staples down under the bottom of our dining chairs. What with all this effort the second day in a row over this door, I made a phone call to Alliance in Florida for an appointment to repair our door handle. Unfortunately, I had to go outside to get better phone reception and shut the door. Guess what. It wouldn’t open. Thus John got working at it but thought he’d found another reason for our problem but in his efforts he pulled a rod out of a tight space and struggled to get it back in. By 1 pm (yes, we were both starving at this point) he got it back together and says he thinks he’s got it solved. Crossing our fingers.
Since we are scheduled to be at Alliance on 11/16, we decided to leave for the Oaks tomorrow. It’s also supposed to get really cold starting tomorrow so we like the idea of also getting further southeast (near the coast) at this point as well.
Good, fattening, sustaining hot dogs (the last) for lunch then off for our walk. This time I got some images of the campground before we go. We had a good time talking with a couple who’d stopped while John was working on the door near the end of our walk. Then it started raining. By 3 pm it was a good pour. We left our door open while on our walk and even when we were back. No sense tempting fate.
The rain stopped by suppertime. Nothing special to report, except that we’re moving on to The Oaks at Yemassee, SC tomorrow.
