Day 2... Saturday began with a trip over to
. Yep, you guessed it... Stepper motors. But let me back up a step....
Like I said, I hijacked Lori's birthday trip. So each year I take Lori on an out of town concert trip for her birthday. Last year we saw Brad Paisley in Chicago and upon looking for this year, I was looking at Chicago again. Lori said somewhere warmer please! She said "Let's go visit Alex and Tina!" The idea was cemented when we found Hootie and the Blowfish playing in Atlanta. I contacted Crudawg about joining us then the idea really got rolling. I was speaking with @Lightshow and they decided to join us. Now Mike's commitment to the Eric Peters situation and the benefit for his family superceded his availability for our little get together but for a very good cause. So congrats Mike and Deb for your efforts and we'll catch you next time. Now back to your regularly scheduled program....
So Saturday morning, Mic, Jim and I headed to Mike's for stepper repair. While in surgery, we were able to install new white guage face plates the I had ordered as well. On a side note, don't forget new needles if they don't work with a new color face. Now Mike saved the day with a little orange paint and all is well. So thanks to Mike, the Firetruck can now be monitored correctly for all it's vital signs.
So repair complete, back to the hotel for check out and pick up it ladies. Mic, Donna, Jim and Linda headed for Atlanta and the Saturday evening hotel. Lori and I headed to Alex and Tina's to gather them up and get my Warner Robbins firehouse photo. I get the Firetruck photographed with a real firetruck in every city we travel as a memory of our trip. (It'll be a nice photo album someday). So now off to Atlanta!
Now the group for the concert consists of Firetruck, RunFaster, MicDonna, Crudawg and
. Now Mike and Kay were having dinner with Alex and Tina and heard about the concert plans and ordered their tickets before leaving the dinner table! She's a huge fan! So off to the show, it's crazy parking and even crazier seating area. Lawn seats... Where you never know if your in the path of bathroom breaks or beverage runs or in our case....Both! The show was fantastic with Bare Naked Ladies as the opening act and Hootie tearing the stage up!
Show over, back to hotel (one of us took the faster route... Just saying Mic...) Now off for some much needed rest..... Stay tuned!
