Got up early Thursday morning as we had a long way to go to get to Macon, Georgia at a decent hour. It was important that we got there early in the day because our friends, the Peacocks, had promised us a ride on their air-boat. We debated whether to get the brakes fixed before we left Nashville or wait until we arrived in Macon. We called our friend in Georgia and he said he had a mechanic who could look at them if we could make it there. That is what we decided to do. Not a bad decision until we hit a long 6% grade going down the canyon. By the time we got down the grade the front brakes of the truck were HOT. We arrived in Macon about 2:30pm and within 5 minutes of our arrival the mechanic came. He found and fixed the problem with the trailer brakes in about 30 minutes. My son checked the truck brakes and discovered a cracked rotor. The mechanic said he had never seen a cracked rotor on a passenger car or truck. Only on race cars. In order to get them fixed we needed to extend our stay with the Peacocks one additional day. Now it was time to go play on the air boat.
We spent the rest of the day touring some of the natural preserve areas around Macon in the air boat.
