Jun 19, 2019 - Rossville, Georgia

This morning we decided to spend another day in Rossville, Georgia which is literally located on the Georgia/Tennessee border. We thought we would tour around Chattanooga sites and chose to drive to Lookout Mountain. Well the tour never got off the ground and we landed at the base of a mountain but decided it was not worth the drive. Later we learned that there was a Costco within a couple of miles of the campsite so we headed to Costco where we got some needed items as well as topping the trucks fuel tank with some $2.09 per gallon...

Jun 18, 2019 - Rossville, Georgia

We left Red Bay at 0900 and it was raining and it had been railing on and off all night. There were cloud bursts from the time we left Red Bay until we got to Huntsville, Alabama when the heavy rains became very light drizzles. As can be expected in the south the temperature is high and so is the humidity. Traffic was light until we got to Huntsville where the traffic became heavier. From that point on the traffic was light to heavy and when we hit Chattanooga, Tennessee the traffic was extremely heavy. Traffic heading in our direction was...

May 5, 2014 - Food, Family, Friends

Monday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park We took my parents with us and made yet another visit to Countryside Café in Ooltewah. I love that place! Not much else today. We managed to get the laundry done, had a wonderful enchilada dinner prepared by my sister in law, and spend the evening visiting with friends and family.

May 3, 2014 - Graduation

Saturday The college graduation for Danielle was at 9:00 in the morning at the UTC arena. We thought we had more than ample time to arrive on time but the traffic going to the graduation ceremony was backed up halfway across town. We arrived a little later than planned and ended up sitting way up in the stands. My friends and Danielle's brother and his wife were also sitting with us since they ended up arriving a little later also. The graduation was very nice and well organized. Afterward we all went to my brother's home for a beautiful...

May 2, 2014 - More family time

Friday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park We made another visit to Countryside Café in Ooltewah. I think they have the best comfort food in the USA! Chicken fried steak, mashed potatos, fried okra, black eyed peas…Yummy!! After that we went to my brother’s home and visited for a little while. It was a peaceful and relaxing day. Tomorrow is my niece’s college graduation and party and that’s when the real excitement begins!

May 1, 2014 - Family

Thursday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park The cold front has moved in now that the storms have passed. I pulled out the sweaters, long sleeve shirts, and jackets even though others in the park were wearing short sleeve shirts and shorts. We were cold. The temperature was in the 60’s all day and that is cold as far as I am concerned! We spent the afternoon with family and enjoyed a wonderful spaghetti dinner at my brother’s home. The best part was we were able to have a little time with my 5 and 3 year old great nieces. They are a bundle of...

Apr 30, 2014 - Shopping

Wednesday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park One of our favorite stores, Costco, is located 3 miles from our current RV park. The second largest shopping mall in Tennessee is located 7 miles from our current RV park. Yay! Today was a day of shopping at both locations in addition to a stop at PetSmart. Whew! We are not used to that kind of shopping in one day. We really didn’t buy much but we were able to find what we needed so I would call it a successful day. And we got a lot of walking exercise in the process. Ha! Ha! We also had the...

Apr 29, 2014 - Storms

Tuesday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park Last night we hoped for the best and prepared for the worst. The RV park was full and we were between two very large motorhomes. One of those motorhomes was a gorgeous, million dollar, 45 foot, Ih-45 Quad slide Foretravel. With a much higher profile and significantly longer length, it buffered a little bit of the wind from the storms. I think that’s funny to have my dream coach next to me and I was thankful it provided a wind break! The night was long and stressful and we did not get much sleep. I...

Apr 28, 2014 - A first!

Monday Rossville, GA Holiday Trav-L-Park About 2 months ago I learned of a new website being rolled out, RVillage.com. The website is for RV’ers to be able to connect and have a community on the road. It’s similar to Facebook but for RV’ers. I joined the website and have been “checking in” to the RV parks as we travel. To be able to meet other RV’ers on the road and stay connected is truly a welcome feature of this website. Today we had the wonderful opportunity to have our first in person meeting with another member of RVillage.com. They...

Apr 27, 2014 - Short move

Sunday Rossville, GA 1 mile Holiday Trav-L-Park It’s always something! We had a slow morning and got all packed up to go. Went to start the motorhome and it would not start. The batteries were dead. Ron pulled out the electrical line, connected to the electricity and charged the batteries. He believes the electric connection was faulty throughout the night and we drained the batteries. Something doesn’t make sense but we were able to start the motorhome and move the short distance to the RV park on the other side of the interstate. The...

Oct 12, 2013 - Remembering Our Heroes

Today was our last day in the Chattanooga area. Since the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park was closed because of the ongoing Federal Government shutdown, we had to seek out other places to visit. Fort Oglethorpe, GA is a town I read about before we got here and has an interesting story. Chickamauga Post was established in 1902 to serve as a cavalry post for the 6th Cavalry. It was later named Fort Oglethorpe after James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia. The “Fighting Sixth” Cavalry was stationed at The Post at Fort...

Oct 11, 2013 - Two More Days in Chattanooga Area

We were lucky enough to get 2 more days here at Trav-L-Park, but we had to move to a new site. The place is filled for the weekend. We didn't do much today as far as sightseeing goes. After a trip to WalMart for groceries and to RiteAid to pick up a prescription, I took a walk to the Civil War marker on the property. The 84th Indiana Infantry Regiment bivouacked on the property on September 19, 1863 before participating in the Battle of Chickamauga the next several days. The regiment suffered 125 killed, wounded or missing out of about 380...
