Kentucky Vacation – Day 5 of 10

From the time we left home, the weather has been beautiful. The only unfavorable weather condition was dense fog a couple mornings. Rain held off until Wednesday, June 10th — the fifth day of our vacation. When it rained, boy did it rain! We were in Lexington, at Fayette Mall (eating lunch at Logan’s Roadhouse), when the storm arrived. The sky was black, except for a narrow white strip around the horizon. The sky reminded me of a flying saucer or a flat pancake. The wind blew; the thunder rolled; and the lightning cracked. Then came the rain, falling down in sheets. I am happy that we drove the car to the mall. I would not have wanted to be caught in that rain storm!

The Fayette Mall is different from any mall in which I have shopped.  We entered the mall at Dick’s Sporting Goods. As we exited Dick’s Sporting Goods, we saw Sears and thought that Fayette Mall looked much larger outside than it did inside. To our surprise the other mall stores were reached by walking THROUGH Sears.

Wolfman’s Wandering Rally attendees have continued to roll in, a few (to several) at a time. When we came home from shopping in Lexington, we met Vicki and Scott from Texas. We chatted for a bit and got together later for dinner at Bob Evans Restaurant.

After dinner we hung out in the parking lot, meeting people and getting reacquainted with old friends. The attendees are from all over — all parts of the USA and Canada and even Europe.

We learned of another mishap. While on her way to the rally, “Blondy’s” motorcycle caught fire. The motorcycle is not well; however, “Blondy” is fine. We are happy that “Blondy” was not hurt.

    I have wondered a couple of times where I accidently overflowed when filling my car's gas tank, whether it was likely/possible that a spark could ignite the gas and catch the car on fire. Do you know what caused the fire? Was it just the vapours ignited during the normal filling process or (like me) was a gas spill involved? Just curious.Enjoying your vacation blogs and looking forward to the next instalment!

    Peggy – This is Blondy's account of the fire, as obtained from the VROC website. I do not know any other details. Blondy “stopped to get gas …Got gas, went inside to…get a drink, check cell phone and blackberry. Inside about 10-15 minutes. Came back out, cranked up and smoke starting coming out from under the gas tank and speedometer. Turned off bike, got off and found antifreeze leaking out under the bike too. Call my bike shop…while I went back into convenience store to get them to call the fire dept. In about five minute it was pretty engulfed…”
