Florida…Fort Pierce

by in Awesome Business, David's Ramblings, Family

After all the fun of New Years, a trip to Clearwater, and visiting cousins from Florida AND Indiana, it was time to move back to the RV, and to visit the cousins in their hometown of Fort Pierce, FL.

We had moved the RV to Fort Pierce so that some work could get done at Diane’s Uncle Ed’s shop.  They did a great job in getting it aligned, oil changes for engine and generator, some new suspension pieces for a level ride, a re-extended tailpipe, brake inspection and adjustment, and some new front tires.

If you find yourself in the Fort Pierce area, and need to have some mechanical work done on your RV, I would HIGHLY recommend you give Ed and the crew a call.  Yes, Diane is related to most of the employee’s, but, they do great work, and they are awesome people.  It’s Hickman’s Brake and Alignment Service.  They do all kinds of mechanical work.  Before the economic downturn, they did a lot of large vehicles, but now, more cars and RV’s, and the occasional big truck.  http://www.hickmansbrakealignment.com/

We stayed at a local RV park, called Road Runner Travel Resort.  They were very nice to deal with, and the park was really nice.  The residents were also very friendly and helpful.  This was even AFTER I took out one of their site marking poles, and crushed the top of a sewer inlet.  I discovered that it’s not a good idea for me to try and drive/park the RV while sick.  I’d started coming down with a fever and the flu earlier that day.  Made for a rough time parking. We still have the scars on the back of the RV, as the pole left several white stripes, and pulled off a plastic part that is now held on by tape.

While we were there, the family had a BIG birthday party for Ed and Gail’s new granddaughter, as well as for Ed.  I sat this one out, so as not to spread the flu, but Diane and Molly had a great time.
