A Grand Tour

Posted 08-11-2011 at 08:32 PM by MrUKToad

The Toads are just back from a Grand Tour of the Southern US. 18 days, 4,200 miles (not all towing) and an average of 12 mpg (US) overall.

From Ontario we stopped at:

Fort Boonesborough KY
High Falls GA
Lake Griffin FL
Grayton Beach LA
Slidell (New Orleans) FL
Childersburg AL
Walland TN
(Near) Jackson Center OH

The Toadmobile ran beautifully, except for a semi-flat at Grayton Beach which couldn't be helped, and Towed Haul behaved as well.

We were flagged down on the I75S just on the Florida border when two guys reckoned we had a wobbly wheel on the trailer. I pulled off and stopped in front of a fruit stand so we were in full view and of the guys waved at a wheel and recommended we stop at the Truck Stop just over the border to get it checked. They drove off and I checked the lugs and general wheel behavior and it looked OK to me. We drove the next few miles carefully but all seemed fine so we pressed on anyway. We wondered if this was a scam of some sort; anyone heard of this?

Anyway, pictures...
