We were blessed with another beautiful, almost fall like day although it did warm up into the 80s this afternoon. We were also blessed with the opportunity to worship with our friends at Lester Memorial and then attend our Sunday school class. After church we finished up lunch, finished getting Fred ready to roll and when Juno and Helen were home from church, we had lunch ready for everyone. After cleaning up we pulled out about 1:30 in route to Red Bay, AL, Tiffin Motor Homes. This will be the first time we have had to bring our rig back to the factory. Fred One came back with his first owners but we never had to bring him back. We arrived in Red Bay about 4:15 pm after an uneventful drive. Tiffin has their own campground with full hookups right at the service center. There are close to 100 campsites and 50 service bays. The people at the campground office were extremely nice and helpful and registered us in to site 45. The campground is no where near full but that is to be expected due to the holiday weekend. We will spend Labor Day here but by doing so we are hopeful we will be close to the top of the list for Tuesday. They service coaches first come first serve, except for warranty work. Every other coach called to the service bay is a new coach if there are any new coaches waiting. Confusing? Yes, a little but we will see what Tuesday brings. Since Fred is less than 3 months old we were told we shouldn’t have to wait very long. Some of our punch list items were not completed by Sherman. We would like to get as much as possible completed before we head to Iowa.
We have met several people already. Tiffin owners are sort of like an extended family and everybody seems to sit outside and walk around visiting. We had heard that Camp Red Bay was interesting and fun so we shall see over the next day or two. We met one lady who is a widow and travels solo full time so we talked to her about NOMADS and gave her a brochure. She had a “home” campground in Houston but came to TN to watch the eclipse. She was headed back last week when Harvey hit. Now she has little reason to return so she is getting some work done on her motor home and then will decide where to go from here. We continue to pray for all those living through such tragedy. We also pray that the east coast is spared from Irma.
One more day of the holiday weekend. Y’all have fun and stay safe tomorrow.
