And the Band Played On...

We had it all planned out. I called CoachNet at 7:00 am and asked them to send out a tow truck to pull us out of the mud. At 7:40 the tow truck operator called and said he was on his way. Wow! We were going to get an early start! We quickly took showers and secured everything, then pulled in our slide outs. And at 8:00 antique cars started pouring into the campground. A marching band showed up, as well as a color guard and several horseback riders.

A parade. Oh that's right, this is Memorial Day. It took the tow truck until after 9:00 am to arrive because the driver kept running into blocked-off parade routes. At which point, the parade departed. The actual towing took about five minutes.

As you can see, the tow truck operator hooked into our hitch and pulled us backwards, with the help of Bob at the wheel. We left some serious divots in their grass.

A few hours later we pulled in to Glades Pike Winery in Somerset, PA. This is a Harvest Hosts winery, where we can boondock for a night without charge. We took a tasting and bought a bottle of wine as a "thank you" to our hosts. We had a lovely view here.

On Tuesday morning Bob and I drove to NJ, where we will be staying for the next two months. We get to hang out with our children and grandchildren!
