Before we could get out of the driveway on Pumpkin trip #2 we sputtered and kerplunked and couldn't get her started again. After spending 30 minutes looking at all possible "major" problems, we realized she was just out of gas. :) (This is a common mistake when one doesn't have a working gas gauge.) So we filled her with go-go juice and away we went.
This trip was a New Year's Eve trip to our friends' cabin in beautiful Blue Ridge, Georgia. Donna and Jeff Stuart were kind to invite us and some other friends up for a few nights of celebration. In fact, they are such good friends that they allowed us to park The Great Pumpkin outside their house and run an extension cord to their electricity outlet! We enjoyed visiting with our friends TJ and Angie Dolan, Johnny Merrick, Kelly Randall, as well as Donna, Jeff and their son Jay. Playing Wii, playing board games, visiting, eating and drinking, and watching the ball drop - what a great way to bring in 2010.
David took Donna and Jeff's son, Jay, for a spin in the pumpkin on New Year's Day before we headed back home. Hopefully 2010 will bring many more trips in our Westphalia!
