Day 1, 2 - Yemassee, SC - TT

Tuesday (1) - 6am and sitting in the Seattle airport waiting for my next flight. The Asian fast food place in the C concourse is now Hachi-ko. They had spam, eggs, and rice on the breakfast menu. Delicious! I remember almost nothing from the red-eye flight from Fairbanks which must mean that I got some sleep. I don’t even remember the plane taking off. 

We arrived back at the RV around 8pm. It feels cold here at 37°F. I went ahead and disconnected our water hose as the forecast is for below freezing tomorrow morning. I guess I did bring the Alaska cold back with me…

The Jeep hasn’t made it very far. According to the salesman, it’s in Proviso, IL, as of this morning. With an arrival window of 12/3 - 12/13. 

Wednesday (2) - Slept a long time to recuperate from that trip. Today will be a relaxing day. I started the turkey in the sous vide as it takes around 24hours. With the remaining turkey trimmings, I’m making turkey noodle soup for dinner. I also made the cranberry sauce with orange and pecans. Tomorrow, I’ll do the wild rice dressing, brussels sprouts, and mashed potatoes. Plus a few other things…

Getting ready for another test session while cooking. It did drop below freezing last night so I'm glad that I disconnected the water hose and regulator. I don't want to freeze and crack another regulator.

Richard, that's a heck of a long wait for a new vehicle since you started the process! I guess the (only) positive thing is that with modern supply chain systems, you can track progress..... or lack thereof.

The wait is inconvenient but I've never ordered a vehicle before so I really didn't know what to expect. Yes, it is long but the tracking is okay but I wish there was more visibility and transparency into the process.

Spam, eggs and rice for breakfast, you just inspired today's Thanksgiving breakfast for me! Glad you had a safe notrip ...
