Winter 2013, The Adventure Begins

We finally started our journey this morning.   We left home the first time at 7:50 a.m, got half way to the border and realized that neither one of us turned down the furnace.    At least we didn't get far before we had to turn around and go home.

    I made up a check list yesterday for the folks who will be hanging out at our house while we are away. and hung it on the inside of the front door.   I even penciled in a couple of things I forgot about.   Obviously, neither one of us read it this morning.

I checked the check list on the way out the second time.  :)

It was an uneventful drive all the way to Kentucky.    Gerry had a headache all day, and we pulled over at a Walmart in Carrollton Kentucky just in time for Gerry to get an all out migraine.

We went into Walmart to get some milk for cereal in the morning and when I came back Gerry noticed water was pouring out of the engine.   It's not coming out of the radiator, it is actually coming out somewhere in the depths of the engine.  Myrtle won't start either and it is way too dark to try to figure it out right now.       Oh well, in the immortal words of Scarlet O'Hara  Tomorrow is another day! . 


  1. Oh shit. Hope it's an easy fix in the morning!

  2. We hope that the fix is easy, quick, and inexpensive.

  3. A leak is never a good sign, hopefully an easy quick fix.
    Good luck.

  4. Lots of luck to you guys. Hope it's only a hose that ley go. We stopped in Carrollton on the way South. Cheapest gasoline in KY.
