Travel Day Sunday May 31

Today was the end of the RV-Dream Reunion Rally at Tom Johnson Camping Center in Marion, NC. 
After breakfast it was time to say goodbye to many new friend and head-out to the next location. 
Bonnie and I had a short trip planned. Only about 120 miles on I-40 & I-77 to Exit 82 and Boonville, NC. 
We had planned to stay at the RagApple Lassie Winery in Bonnville.
About 3 miles from the our exit we got a check engine light & check ECU Coolant alarm. So we made it to the exit and pulled into the BP-Truck Stop. 
I got out and found we had a broken hose clamp on the bottom of the radiator and was leaking anti-freeze coolant. 
Placed a call to "Good Sam's Roadside Assistance". About 1 1/2 hrs later, Sam from "Southside Road Service" of Jonesville, NC was on site. One hour later after he install a new clamp, add about six gallons of anti-freeze coolant, and check the operation of the cooling system we were back on the road.
Thanks to "Good Sam" and "Southside Road Service" for a fast and timely repair. 
The rest of the day was great had a wine tasting at RagApple Lassie Winery. 

And a visit to Mount Airy, NC to see Andy Griffith Museum 

and Aunt Bees Dinner. 


  1. I'm going to be whistling the theme from Andy Griffith all day, Fred! :)


  2. That makes me smile Jim. We are currently on a search for a dvd set of the old shows.
