Following leaving Jim's (Beam) house we noticed Chichero started to make a grumbling noise..we'd heard this one before. With the aid of google and a Waffle House breakfast, the semi-pro mechanics in us diagnosed the problem as an AC compressor failure. White house was in the middle of nowhere but we managed to find a $30 a room/night motel with HBO. This became our home for 2 nights, the boredom from being stuck in a room with nothing to do only made us more determined to get to the Sunshine State.
 
Unfortunately Chichero had other ideas, only an hour after leaving White house she started to develop a temperature. We pulled into a garage only to see a massive puddle on the floor, the poor girl had a leak. It was a bit of an ordeal finding a garage, but after knocking on some doors and following a local we got to one. Luckily this time the town we were stuck at had was home of a big college, MTSU.  

Our emergency couch request was answered fairly soon by Brenda a friendly little landscape Gardner.  Her 1985 Germany style arm pits did put us at unease slightly (Luke never got over them), but she was kind and gave us her apartment to ourselves for the whole 2 days whilst she stayed with her girlfriend.

We hit the town for a look took advantage of the 50 beers. Not having spoken to her since we left, I feel she may have regretted saying "Anything in the fridge is yours, i'm not going to eat it". Stake and eggs for breakfast every day. We ate it. All.
