Re: [RC] i'm sooo not AWAKE!!! re:the good, the bad, & the ugly - Jody Rogers-Buttram

Sounds like our luck.   To avoid the traffic nightmare in Atlanta and Birmingham, we decided to take another way home.  NOT again.  Made a 9 hours haul a 14 hour haul.  Turns out if you go thru NC over to Chattanooga....you climb some BIG mountains.  And for those of you who know my dinosaur truck, you would be surprised to know that it did make it to the top.  One of them, we did pull over nearly at the top and let it "rest".  Had to drain all the water tanks in the trailer and on the truck to lighten the load.  Joel said we might have to ride the horses on to the top.  That mountain is only 1000 feet smaller than Clingman's Dome.  But, now I KNOW that truck won't be going to the Tevis.  :))
 
Jody and ponies....glad they didn't have to walk up the mountain.
 
PS.  A young girl ( crewing the 100's from PA)  at the ride got in our truck and sat down.  The first thing she said was, "You came here all the way from Alabama in THIS?)  I explained to her, yes, but it is paid for.
