Started calling RV techs for help. The first guy we called, Bud, told us he'd just retired and the rest of them told us they were overbooked due to Bud's retiring! One of them did tell us we needed to call a porta-potty service to empty the tank before anyone could work on it. Called around and and were finally directed to someone who could do it. Oddly enough it was The Ward Brothers Septic Service...no relation, but a good omen! They came out and drained the tank on Friday and got rid of whatever caused the clog. On advice from someone from Facebook, I scrubbed the trap with a brush and cleared whatever was interfering with the seal. By the time we left Greensboro, all was well with our plumbing.
The purpose of a stop in Greensboro was to see my brothers. We had dinner Thursday at Elizabeth's, an old favorite, with Ken, Matthew and Ciera. On Friday, Glen and Joanna showed up with ice cream after Jack installed an Intervac central vac for me...yay!!! I love my vacuum! On Saturday, we caught up on laundry at Glen and Joanna's (as I still don't have a washer/dryer) and Glen cleaned up my laptop, then dinner at Darryl's, which has become Jack's go-to place in Greensboro. It was a good, all-too-short visit!

Today we drove into Kentucky. We're at the Elkhorn Campground in Frankfort and plan to stay two nights and relax a bit before going to Indianapolis. Very pretty setting here, but an odd configuration of hookups. We got a pull-thru, but only because we were the first ones in. We drove through a site to reach ours, the guy behind us had to back in...and we share hook ups, which means his are on the wrong side. Our neighbor arrived with a brand new travel trailer and asked us to help guide him backing in, which we did, as well as showing him how to lower his jacks. But, when he asked to borrow two potatoes, he was out of luck as we had sandwiches for dinner!

I'm not sure what we will do with our free day in Frankfort tomorrow...sight-see...or sit outside with cold drink and a good book, but whatever we do, it will include adding two states to my travel map!
