Never Set Sail On a Friday

Current Temperature : 82°
Current location : Columbia, SC
Current time : 10:30 am
Approximately 420 miles from home.
There is a belief in the sailing world that one should never set sail on a Friday.   “”That won’t apply to us. ” we said to ourselves.   We believed that since we were camping that the rule didn’t apply. In early morning coffee retrospection we decided that yes indeedy it did apply even in the camping world.
Think about it: yesterday we hit a terrible, blinding thunder storm with torrential rain near Jacksonville.   It was all Jim could do to keep going.   He said it was very difficult to see.   I’m very proud of him, as he handled it way better than I ever would have.   Note: new tires or at least good tires are a must and nerves of steel.
Then when we stopped at a Walmart for the night I fell going into the camper.   I hit the settee pretty hard,  but I’m tough and am better today.  Lesson- use the flashlight that resides in your purse.
Jim bought me a new key ring today that has a mini flashlight on it and an extra camper and truck key.
Why an extra key you ask; because when you lock your truck keys in the truck at 10 o’clock at night you decide an extra might be a great idea.   Lesson: have a spare and thank God for AAA.
So,  next year we will wait until Saturday, even it it is 12:01 midnight.
