Beluga was finished and waiting for us at the RVRoof.com facility in Green Cove Springs. She is now sporting a new, sparkling white Flexarmor rubber roof, guaranteed for life.

We were very impressed with David and his crew. They welcomed us with open arms (think 50 amp and water hook ups) and they kept Beluga plugged in the whole time, so as to not ruin our jammed full refrig./freezer. This is a very professional company with a great product and they even took RVDreams coupon, so we saved $200! Thanks guys! (today turned out to be way too busy to get any pictures of the roof, look for a couple in the next few days).
Next, we drove through a rather iffy part of Jacksonville to the TCI shop to buy Beluga two new sneakers for the long journey west. (OK, new front tires). We used the FMCA Advantage program so we saved a few bucks in the process. The dogs and I stayed in the jeep with the engine running all the while, it was 90 degrees today!
It was after 5 p.m. when the tire guys were finished with Beluga so we just drove a few miles to our first Elks Lodge. They have four 50 amp. full hook-ups for members only at a price that is embarrassing. We're the only ones here and its so quiet. Just what we all needed, especially dear Lewis. Tonight he has a huge side yard all to himself!
We'll keep an eye to the weather and make our western travel plans accordingly, but we're anxious to get on the road again.
