I’ve got some interesting photos from today. You’ll have to wait a little for ‘em. First I’ll start by telling you where the RV has been since we arrived. It’s at a campground in front of a drag racing strip (Lowes Motor Speedway). Glamorous huh? Well, racing is a big deal here in Charlotte.
Next, I’ll tell you about the grocery shopping trip. When we first arrived here, I went shopping at a Harris Teeter supermarket. This time, Jim and I went to a Bloom (a Food Lion owned store). We walked in and saw self service scan guns. We went to the service counter to inquire. You scan your club card (Breeze Card). The machine tells you which gun to take. You grab some bags. You shop. Scan each item, bag it as you shop. The produce department has scales with label printers. Pop the veggies onto the scale, punch in a code, print a label, affix to bag, scan with your gun. It was fun and easy. When you get to the cashier OR self service, scan an “end order” barcode. Scan your Breeze card at the register and it will pull up the order so you can pay.
I’m sure everything in the store is more money but we weren’t there for major food shopping. Jim said a few items he glanced at were priced OK.
We found this in bacon section. Ewwwwww.
Amongst the 3,457 stores we went to today, Walmart was funniest. Check out the parking lot.
That’s right, seagulls. Jim called this “the double what-the-fuck”. #1- We’re not near the sea, #2- It’s freezing out, why not head South? You have wings.
Mark of Mark and Tom came by the RV to show us how to winterize it.
The sewer hoses broke. All 3 hoses had too much liquid and froze. One was split open with ice hanging out. I called it a turd-cicle. Well, luckily there weren’t any nasty solids stuck in suspended animation. We just had to replace 3 hoses.
That’s all I got. We’ve been so busy shopping and organizing. Yay! I’m in the mood for an ice pop.
