June Canton First Monday

We are at Canton for next weekend First Monday. All I can say is its hot and we don’t see any relief coming our way. We were up at 5am Friday morning and on the road to Canton by 6am. We wanted to make the two hour trip in the cool of the morning to make it easier on the motorhome and tires. We arrived at 8 am and was set up by 9:15 where afterwards went to breakfast at the Dairy palace.


Today we watched the NASCAR Nationwide race at Charlotte, NC where Kyle Bush was able to pull out another win. He came from 2 laps down to win  his second consecutive races, four of the last eight events and has moved within a point of leader Brad Keselowski. Busch overcame some early troubles to win the Nationwide race. This  was his final race in the second-tier series for three weeks. He’s planning to step away to focus solely on the Cup series. Tomorrow will be a full day of racing with the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway . Sure glad we got some of our booth set up chores out of the way today.

Our neighbor Woody came over this morning and asked me to take a look at his fresh water connection and help him determine why water was pouring from his house fresh water filter. He said he just recently had his Holiday Imperial 42 ft motorhome in to the dealer and they changed out all his filters plus serviced the engine and chassis. I could only suspect they left the filter gasket off or there was some trash between the canister and the filter mount. I came back and got my filter removable tool and after taking off the filter we found they had left the water filter gasket off. Now in this town where are you going to find a water filter gasket. There is a Ace hardware store in town and who would believe it that had one that was the size for his filter canister. We got back and installed it and had no leaks. Woody said he had spent quite a  bit of monies for this incompetence and was certainly going to call them come Tuesday.

We made a trip to Wal Mart today and what a mistake this being Memorial weekend the place was wall to wall with people. What normally is a thirty to forty minute shop we were in there one hour and twenty minutes.


Speaking of Memorial Day weekend, we don’t want to forget those who for love of country made the greatest sacrifice of all, they accepted death. Also the active duty men and women should be in our prayers every day as it is these young people who give us our freedom. And, there are our our veterans. if it wasn't for them no telling what language we might be speaking today. And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. ~Lee Greenwood

We may drive to Tyler Monday to the Best Buy. They have a Apple Support Center their and we want to look at the Ipad some more.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers
