The evening before visiting the city we heard a saver weather warning in our region,so before hitting the sack we lowered the TV antenna and disconnected all electrical appliance s it was recommended on the weather news,we did not go far as closing the slides but we were ready for the worse-it got stormy around 1130PM but nothing really bad ,no tennis ball size hale just wind and heavy rain that the trailer handed successfully.
The next morning was a whole different story,it was summer again… so we drove down to the Ford Duluth to service the truck as planed and booked a day before,on the way to Ford all kind of thoughts run through my mind regarding the service and not all were good-but what a pleasant surprise waited for us,we were excepted immediately with no hassle ,we were given keys to a Ford company car and were told to come back at 4PM.
They were efficient,professional and every that was promised was done ,we also ordered 4 new tires(Michelin LMX M2) which they had to bring overnight,when we arrived for the service we were told that we will pay for 3 and get one free (saved 250$)-not bad..
Having the small car we easily toured this beautiful city from the Sky line drive till downtown and the port are watching a big ship entering the port .to do so a huge bridge is lifted up all in one piece and lowered back after the ship passed into the port-as the kids say “COOL”
Killing time we headed to the famous “Grandmother’s” restaurant and had a great meal ,4 beer samples and a huge bloody marry (there was enough time before I get behind the wheel)
The truck was ready as promised and I am happy to say that it worked as planed .
Tomorrow –hiking in Amicon S.P WI to waterfalls…
