May 26: Charleston, SC. Stewball is in the secure parking lot at the Dewberry Hotel in Charleston after spending a week on Sullivan’s Island with other rally friends. We all debated just staying at the beach for three weeks then flying to the final destination in Seattle, Washington. But here we are. Today all the cars were scrutinized. Stewball passed with flying colors.
For a week now we enjoyed quiet mornings and great company which included friends from the Netherlands and England and our niece who lives nearby.
Friday we celebrated Mick’s 65th birthday at the beach house. That was special for everyone.
Tomorrow at 8:13 am, we start out. The first car out is at 8:00. Cars begin at one minute intervals and even though we are car 16, not every number is represented and we will be the 13th car to leave.
Our destination is Charlotte, North Carolina via back roads which take us out of Charleston to Summerville and onward. We don’t know exactly how the day will go, it looks easy on paper, but we’ve learned a long time ago, that is not reality.
I will post as we go as often as I can. Sometimes it’s the internet connection, other times it is fatigue but I will do my best.
See you down the road,
J& E and Stewball
