Jacksonville to Charlotte. Pretty easy. On our last trip to Charlotte, Jim had me jot down various fuel stops and rest area exits. We pretty much preplanned our stops knowing what gas stations would be easy to get in and out of. That’s Jim for you. Prepared.
Before leaving the RV park, Jim checked the transmission fluid. Remember, we had it changed a few weeks back. The fluid didn’t even register on the 458 foot dipstick from hell. That thing was so long, I think it was poking through China soil. I saw rice stuck on the end of it. Anyway, we added about 2 quarts. At the next stop we bought and added more. The book says that sucker holds 16.something. All in all, I think we added 5 quarts. Why can’t anyone do their jobs properly? As our friend John Anderson would say, “I just shake my head.”
Both yesterday and today, Jim and I both noticed an abundance of RV’s on the interstates. We’ve guessed that those heading North were returning home from a fun filled holiday. Those heading South enjoyed the holidays with loved ones and are now seeking warmer climate. It will definitely be warmer in SW Florida, but from what I’ve seen, not much.

While gassing up, Jim spotted a Waffle House. He “craved” Waffle House waffle’s. Lunch. We went. We ate. We left happy.
We arrived in Charlotte. We checked in at the campground, set up the RV and then headed to Chili’s for margaritas and dinner. We stopped by the house to pick up the car, and then returned to the RV for much needed sleep.
