We made it! We left Rochester, NY in 18 degree weather, on Thursday. 12 1/2 hours later and much much warmer, we made it to Gaffney, SC, where it’s currently 51 degrees at 5:30pm as I type this.
This is were we will be for the next few days. We have an appointment on Wednesday to get some routine maintenance work done. We wanted to get here early enough because if they can take us early, they will. Plus, we had to leave Rochester when we did because another winter storm was coming our way. We had our window of opportunity and we took it.
The roads were actually much better than we thought they’d be. They were nice and clear, and dry. The only down side…road salt. Their was so much road salt the coach actually looked gray when we pulled in here. Sorry to say, I didn’t get a picture before David whipped out the hose to clean it all off. So below you will see a picture of our tow vehicle, rinsed off with water, but not cleaned yet with soap. What a wreck! I think David was secretly happy I didn’t think about taking a picture of the coach until it was too late. He likes to keep it spotless and these last few days on the road wreaked havoc on it.
So we’re here, in Gaffney, SC just hanging out until our appointment. If you are ever in the area, or even just passing by, this service center is definitely a must for anyone with a freightliner chassis. The people here are very knowledgeable and very accommodating, not to mention super nice. It’s an Oasis stop so there is a place to plug in, a dump station and watering station which is nice.
And I must say, as soon as we hit the warmer weather, the 40’s and 50’s, all be it not summer weather, Tasha is enjoying it. She laid outside on her blanket as David washed off the rig, protecting him the entire time. She loves it so.
