Greg & Connie's house
We finally hit the road after our huge repair to the truck on Thursday.
We had some time to make up in order to get to see some friends
on our trip back east.
We stayed in some Walmarts along the way,
and one Camping World.
Finally we made it to Lena, IL where we could visit our
friends Mike & Terri.
They figured out for us that there was a site right behind them
that was open for one night.
It was so good to see them!
They took us to see their favorite place to eat in Monroe, WI,
We had the best sandwiches, and Mrs. Mike's potato chips!
Once we had our fill of their wonderful cheese,
we walked around the little square there.
George found a new friend :-)
Mike wanted to go to a car show in Freeport,
the town that he was born & raised in.
We enjoyed seeing some classics..
The next morning we had a nice breakfast with them at a local diner..
..and then we had say our goodbyes until 'somewhere down the road'!
We took off and finally ended up on highway 80 toodling along,
and making good time.
Just after we crossed over from Indiana into Ohio
our tire pressure monitoring system started beeping.
I checked the number on the LED display to see that
one of the trailer tires was down to 86 psi. from 125!
George tried to pull over to the side of the road safely,
but with all the holiday traffic whizzing by, it wasn't easy.
He ended up pulling into the 'u-turn emergency spot' in the median.
By the time we got stopped, it was flat!
George was able to determine that the problem was a valve stem issue.
After calling Good Sam roadside service,
they sent out a tow truck guy who was able to change out the stem,
and for no charge!
We sure are so happy that the tire system worked!
By the time it was changed, it was getting late,
so we pulled into a rest area to sleep for the night.
The saga continues..
