Pretty soon after that we noticed two large things in the road. Mom was able to swerve around one and we thought she missed the 2nd one but it got lodged under the van. So we pulled over on the major road. I had to lay down and climb under the van to get it out. Of course every semi that drove by rocked the van as I was laying under it. Not my idea of fun that's for sure.
But (trying to think of the positives)....we have arrived safe and sound. One spot on the road we noticed there were a lot of puddles from very heavy rain. We only had sprinkles for a little bit and then it cleared up. Soon after settling in our hotel is rained very hard several times. So we really lucked out with the weather. I'm very thankful I was able to get the piece out from under the van and it didn't do any damage at all. We are closer to home than yesterday so we are in the right direction. See there are positives.
We actually stayed here at this hotel on the way. It's the one where we had the power problem. But the hotel is fine and the restaurant within walking distance was very good too. So we were glad to happen upon the same place on the way back. Yes today was frustrating but we survived and tomorrow will be a new day.
