Things Do Get Better…They Always Do!

We arrived at the Winston-Salem event which ended up to be one of the worst events we have endured. It was a one day show and helpers were none to be found and the ones we had were just a nightmare. Just way too inquisitive about things that are not any of their business, we were very uncomfortable the entire event but we made it through.

We stayed at Best Western Plus Hanes Mall Hotel in Winston-Salem, North Carolina which was just a few miles from the event. The hotel was clean, the workers were very accommodating and the bed was very comfortable but the parking was a nightmare all up a very steep hill, the room refrigerator leaked and made some weird noises, and our first morning breakfast consisted of moldy eggs…ruined me for a few days.

Our original plan after this event was to take our time getting to the ocean to hang out for a day but instead we drove almost 300 miles just so we could have two days on the ocean, which is exactly what we needed.

Since it was off season, we got a fantastic deal on a Jacuzzi room overlooking the ocean and we took full advantage of the patio and Jacuzzi for our 2 nights in Virginia Beach at the Schooner Inn. Funny how a night listening to the waves can take away all the stress that life brought to us. We were right on track once again.

We took a short walk to a nearby souvenir store to pick up a few trinkets and then stopped for lunch at Waterman’s where they serve fresh local seafood.

Our food was succulent and delightful and the Bloody Maria’s were just what the doctor ordered…only enough spiciness to make us order another one.

Life was good and it was hard leaving but we had more excitement ahead this week…

Our first adventure on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. It was intimidating but exciting at the same time…two tunnels and plenty of bridge had our hearts pumping and the camera clicking.

We made our way to Dover, Delaware where we stayed at the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino which was located right on the Dover International Speedway.

The hotel was nice but many of the workers need a bit of customer service refresher course, there were a few that were less than accommodating and were not very friendly in the hotel, but when it came to the tour of the track, well let’s just say that George Keller the Historian of the track was outstanding. He knew his stuff and since it was just Jerry and I on the tour he made it especially special. The tour is usually done in a bus but he pulled up in an official pace car and we were jacked.

We did so many laps around the track, stopping as they would for a pit stop, the only difference was they are usually traveling about 200mph and we kept it below 100.

He took us to areas that were usually off limits...

We had a blast...
