Quick start to trip report!! Car was loaded last night, all washed and waxed..house cleaned, doggie instructions set out.car filled up!! Gas was $1.80 at Speedway in KY and only held 26$! We got on the road around 12 this afternoon just driving along till we get tired! The plan is to stop in Kingsport for something to drink and the on to Spartanburg for late lunch..as of right now not sure if we are staying over in Columbia or Florence or driving on in!! Can ya tell we were ready to get out of KY!! We are only 6 1/2 hrs from MB!!

I hope to update daily!! I always have good intentions but never seem to finish until a month or so later.
Myrtle Beach bound!!! :cheerleader:

First stop of the day in Spartanburg.. LOL .. Only traffic issue so far was in Ashville. Spartanburg stop was abbott farms for peaches and peach butter for my lunch this week.. Then to fuddruckers because we all were starving. We've decided to just drive on in. It's 5:30 and we have 200 miles to go!!

Temp in Spartanburg was 100. My neighbor in KY said it was 87 and it said weather channel said it felt like 95.

:sunny:

I will be posting our report hopefully next week. On Sunday afternoon the day after we got home i got a call asking if i had heard from my brother. I hadn't but was getting ready to call because I was on the way to the grocery store and was going to see if he needed anything as I always do. I was told that they had been trying to get ahold of him and he was suppose to meet them downstairs to go to church. He wasn't answering his phone or text. I met the friend at the building and we went in the apartment to find him already passed. He had had so much happen with his health over the years but from what I was told he had very low BP problems and problems at dialysis the week I was in MB. Please keep my family and I in your prayers. We are having a memorial service tomorrow evening.

Thank you all so much for the kind words. My brother and I were very very close. We were the youngest. He was just 49 but had, had bad health for the past few years. This weekend we will finish packing up his apartment and putting things in storage and cleaning it so I can turn the keys in in Monday. Even though he's been gone almost three weeks, turning the keys in seems to make it so final.

Hubby and I are planning a weekend get away in a few months just to get a breath. When you come home from MB you're suppose to be relaxed and stress free and I've not had that yet.. The honest truth .. I unpacked the front and back seat of the car and most of the trunk on the Sunday before I got the call.. I had left hubby's and my bad in because they are so heavy..lol (no I didn't pack light, as I tried) Our bags are still in the trunk. lol If MB didn't take us 7-8 hrs to get there I'd come on back.

We have only posted a few vacation pics.. I don't even know what we have. I know we don't like it in July lol .. I have contact the owner and made a date for September '17..

Again thanks for the kind words and I'll give a trip report soon. It'll help keep my mind off things!! Fun beaches friends are the best!!

Carol
