The Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, AL


Our trip from Red Bay to Woodville, AL was a short 123 miles through Decatur and Huntsville along 4-lane US highways with a brief journey on I-565 going through Huntsville. There wasn't a whole lot new to see, just the rolling hills of North Alabama.

We are staying at the Parnell Creek RV Park just east of Woodville. This is an older park but has a lot of amenities, especially if you have children and just want to camp. They have cabins, pool, playground, miniature golf, etc. We have a full hookup 50 amp pull-through that is barely long enough for the Mothership and Libby but will do nicely to give us a day or so to relax and think of something besides Red Bay.

After our first restful night in a good while, we visited the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, AL, about a 15 minute drive from the RV park. They purchase unclaimed baggage from the airlines or their agent and then clean up, sort and sell the contents at their store. There were a lot of clothes naturally, some electronics (including iPads), shoes, jewelry (mostly costume), books, household goods, etc. Paperback books were selling for .49 to 1.99 each depending on the author and condition. I also picked up a like new James Patterson hardback for 2.99 as well as a few paperbacks. There were a few bargains and if you lived in the area, it might be worthwhile to check their clothes out on occassion but we didn't need any.

Tomorrow, we head for a park that gets very good reviews and we have wanted to visit but never been in the area. That will be a two-night stop and the last until we reach Waynesville, NC for the beginning of our long stay in the NC mountains.
