That was by far one of the worst drives and days I have ever had on a bus. I have not been able to write for several days due to having no power. We left Fort Lauderdale after a great show, met tons of Brits, and had a great time chatting to people.
We started to drive to Baltimore around 2:00 am in shorts and a t-shirt. I fell asleep as per usual sitting in the chair next to Matt. I woke up due to the fact the temperature had dropped around 30 degrees. We have had no heat on the bus, and have not needed it, but the reality of heading North was setting in.
On the way we stopped at a boat and RV location in South Carolina.We stayed and they fixed our batteries so that we at least had light on the bus, but without the generator, there still would be no power. We needed according to them a new carburetor. We had lunch and boarded back on to the bus.
As the evening drew we stopped at a roadside diner for take out. We were greeted by a scene from deliverance. We were made to feel very un-welcome;they definitely assumed that we were the Cavalry.
