I forgot to mention Little John. On Friday John stayed the day, and he and I went sight seeing to the Dam visitor center. It was awesome. Then John drove me to Waynesville, so I could talk tot he shop about my truck's status. Awesome thanks to John as well.

It is all part of the fun of owning an 11 year old truck with 250,000 miles :-)

so the final chapter (I hope) comes to a close. This is a wonderful group as shown by all the people who helped me

Chris's (FL Chris) Son helped me load the heavy items into my trailer. He got pinched fingers so he is now a wounded veteran of BMWST (respect him accordingly)

Chris (FL chris) used his truck to move my trailer down to the open/storage area. All RV spots were reserved Sat - Tuesd so I had to move it.

Little John who took me to the Dam Visitor center (great experience) and then drove me to Waynesville to the repair shop so I could talk in person to the owner

Andy Raye who came and picked me up on Wednesday so I could get back to the office

Selden who has volunteered to drive me back up when the truck is ready.


An incredible group who all gave up of their time and resources to help me.

All my Thanks.

That was certainly a small detour, Lester. Well done!
