Home, Alive and Glad NO ONE was hurt!
Hey everyone - we are home - many many pictures to come, but now I have to take a bath and go to bed! We are home it took about 3 hours longer than it should have ... because we tow my Mom's (brand new) Ford Explorer behind our RV ... well this time (the first time we have towed THIS car, but have towed many others) the hitch broke off and the car went flying down the street. YES you read that correctly ... Andy was driving my dad was napping, I had just put Tatum back in her Car Seat from her lunch feeding and I heard Andy say "Ron we lost the car" I looked up from the sofa and out the driver side and yep there was the royal blue explorer going down the road all by its self - it was about to pass us. For SOME unknown reason Andy took 17 South (a 2 lane/4 lane road) instead of the usual 95 South. Thank GOD! If we would have lost the car on 95 it would have been a car pile up with many many injured people. The car did go through a construction site and I am not sure how but NO ONE was injured. The Forman said he had JUST 30 minutes prior sent his workers home because of the rain. I will post pictures from the race, and the car wreck tomorrow - good night glad to be home!
