We drove home on Saturday (Aug 23) from Gatlinburg, a 10 hour trip. Halfway through, a strange sound from the engine. But we were far from anything familiar, unsure of where we could stop and whether help would be available on the weekend. So, we kept going, Robin doing the driving while I continued preparing for Sunday. Halfway up the Mt Rose Avenue hill, the belt broke - water pump, alternator, power steering - and we managed to pull into the driveway just in time. We are so thankful that this didn't happen any earlier in our drive - a miracle!
