Maggie Valley, NC
Another beautiful day in
An update on the truck:
George took it to a Chevy dealer
in nearby Waynesville.
They changed the oil & fuel filter..
..to the tune of $234.00..
and determined that the problem
is a turbo-boost sensor and control valve.
The good news is it is covered under warranty.
The good/bad news is the part won't be
here until Monday, so we've extended
our stay in Maggie Valley one more day.
Now we'll have a long day's drive
to Murrell's Inlet on Tuesday.
That's ok, though, because
SANDY can get her butt outta
the area by then :-)
So today we drove up to the
Oconaluftee Visitors Center
which is in the Great Smoky Mountains
We dutifully got our passport stamped..
then wandered around the
Mountain Farm Museum.
It really was an interesting place!
Since we got a taste of the Smokies..
we wanted to get a taste of the
Blue Ridge Parkway.
We plugged a destination in our GPS,
and took off for Mt. Pisgah...
...or so we thought :-)
It took us to the 'destination'
but there was no Mt. Pisgah there :-)
Oh well when we figured out our mistake,
it was getting too late in the day to
turn around and go the right way.
We did, however,
get to be on a small portion
of the Blue Ridge..
We felt as if we were on top
of the world up there.
When we got back to the campground..
we saw this sign..
We high-tailed it over there at 7:15.
The cool part?
I won 2 games, and George won 1.
For our $10 investment,
we won $62!
Enough for breakfast tomorrow
at Joey's (and their famous pancakes)
and to see some bluegrass
