We arrived at the Tom Johnson Camping Center in Marion, NC late yesterday afternoon. The weather on the trip from Virginia was rainy and overcast. Last night we were under a tornado watch until 0200 on 4/28. As you are probably seeing on the news, tornadoes have torn up Mississippi and Alabama. We were fortunate that there was only rain and thunderstorms last night, although someone said a tornado siren went off about 0400 this morning. I must have slept through it because I never heard it.
We wnet to a geocaching talk today. Geocaching is using a handheld GPS to find hidden stuff. Once you find it you log it on a web site. It's kind of an active version of "Where's George?", the dollar bill tracking hobby. I've had a handheld GPS for a couple of years, but haven't gotten into geocaching yet. Looks like it could be fun. There are apparently over a million things hidden all over the country.
There is an RV superstore here at the campground so I wnet in and bought some stuff. It's not a Camping World, but it's close. Took a look at some of the new and used RV's on the lot. I think we'll stick with Winnie for a while longer.
After the Pot Luck dinner tonight we were enetertained by Terry McKinney pefroming traditional country music. I was surprised Terry and his back-up musicians played for 2 hours without a break. Most of the guys were old-timers who have played with some of the greats from country and blue grass music. They were great although I was nearly frozen by the time they were done.
