South Carolina ?!?!
We are headed to Asheville NC today for Bernie’s next job, about a two hour drive.
The “service engine soon” light came on so Bernie checked all the fluids and found nothing wrong. We don’t know why the light is on.
We were happy to find out the fridge was working fine so we packed up all our food, closed up the house, entered our destination in our GPS, and we were ready to hit the road.
For some reason, Lola (our GPS) decided to take us to South Carolina on our way from Charlotte to Asheville. As soon as we saw the “Welcome to South Carolina” sign, we got off at the next exit.
After confirming our route using online maps, we got back on track and were very happy to see the “Welcome to North Carolina” sign. We turned Lola off for a while, she needed a break.
When we finally got to Asheville, we stopped at a grocery store to pick up a couple of things and then we went to Lula’s house.
Lula had emailed us about some projects she has for Bernie at her house and offered us her driveway to park with water, electric, and sewer. Lula gave us the tour, this house was built by Habitat for Humanity for the previous resident. Lula showed Bernie what she needs done and then we went back to Bella and settled in for the night.
