The couple we’ll ride with, Sean & Christine were out-of-town and came back yesterday. What’s the first thing Donna wanted to get together and do? Well it was to go riding of course! Sean & Christine are now in the home stretch of being full-time RV’ers with a contract on their house and had already planned to look at campers and motorhomes today. We’re leaning in that direction ourselves so Donna came up with the idea for a short ride to lunch for some BBQ and then back towards home to look at campers. We met later in the morning than normal since it was a lunch ride and we headed for Dawsonville and over Burnt Mountain for lunch in Talking Rock, GA at Biguns BBQ. This is the same short lunch ride I had led some members of my Blue Knights Chapter on earlier in the week. But it does amaze me of how much cooler it is on the top of that mountain and it’s not very high. Today it was sunny and it was 8 degrees (F) cooler on the top of the mountain. We headed on to Biguns before it got too crowded and it sure did get crowded today. After lunch it was time to head down to Camping World to do some window shopping. Donna and I even found a real nice Class C motorhome that we really liked. It was to the point that we were looking at each other and scheming. We were at the point that we decided that if we could right now, we’d buy it then buy a trailer for the Magic Carpet and just hit the road. Maybe in another year or so though.
Today was also the first day that I finally got Donna to wear earplugs while riding too. She finally gave in! She had tried foam earplugs in the past but didn’t like them and admittedly they did loosen up and fall look like they were going to fall out. It was time for me to replace my ETY plugs so I just ordered 2 pair this time. She really liked them when she tried them on when they got here and then she wore them all day today and found them comfortable.
