It wasn't until I called him and said that we were on his street, so which house was his, that we found out we had gone to the wrong street!!
Mark and Sue have a nice home, and he has a fantastic garage for his RV. Nice and tall, with full hookups inside, and a door! He even has a 50amp hookup outside the door so that someone, like us, can back up to the door, and park for a while.
We spent the night, after visiting and discussing our upcoming trips, and we got up fairly early the next morning to hit the road. Sue made us a nice breakfast and gave us some Satsumas to take with us, and we were on our way. I had planned to take a picture, but we were on the interstate before I thought about it.
We drove most of the day and arrived in Fulton, MS (just off the Natchez Trace and East of Tupelo) about 9:00pm. We spent the night in the Fulton Wal-mart, and then got up on Wednesday morning and drove to the Allegro Campground.
The campground is busy. We were put in the overflow area (without hookups), with about 20 other rigs. The campsites are first come, first served......... and we expect to be in a full hookup site by tomorrow afternoon. The campground, being also the Tiffin service area, is busy this time of year because of snowbirds stopping for service on the way south. It gets busy again next spring for the same reason.
We have met a lot of people here...... some that we had met before, and others that are watching thier rigs being built. Tom and Ann Caywood, who we met at the SC rally in Murchison are here for repairs.
Here's a couple of pictures of the overflow area: (it sort of empties in the evening and refills in the morning)
As were drove around we saw an EXCEL Fifth Wheel parked with a large diesel puller. Sue and Mark already have the big truck, and are looking to buy an EXCEL trailer. Here it is, Mark:
We have also had time to go to the factory and meet with some of the Tiffin personnel. We got a detailed schedule for our Bus' manufacture....... showing dates and times when it will be where along the line. We also verified some of the changes that we asked for are on the books. The best thing is that after we had heard of complaints about the shades in some of the rigs, I made contacts with Tiffin and the shade manufacturer, and our Bus is going to be the first to get a modified installation. That is a good thing!!
Tomorrow, we intend to rest and visit the factory to learn some more details about how to work on the Bus.
