Oct 19, 2015 - Monday Chattanooga TN

We decided to stay another day here in Cleveland Tennessee. The cool weather has traveled quite south to this area, it was in the mid 30’s this morning. We did travel to the local Camping World and bought a spare tire cover and smaller mat for outside the motorhome. We returned to the motorhome and Candy decided that she needed her Walmart fix, so off she went. After about 4 hours she returned and we settled in for the night.

2015 Family Cruise

Oct 18, 2015 - Sunday Chattanooga TN

In 1819, the Cherokee Agency— the official liaison between the U.S. government and the Cherokee Nation— was moved to the Hiwassee area, a few miles north of what is now Cleveland. The Indian agent was Colonel Return J. Meigs. Charleston and Blythe's Ferry (about 15 miles, or 24 kilometers, west of Cleveland) would both figure prominently in the Cherokee Removal in the late 1830s. The legislative act that created Bradley County in 1836 authorized the establishment of a county seat, which was to be named "Cleveland" after Colonel Benjamin...

2015 Family Cruise

Oct 17, 2015 - Saturday Chattanooga TN

We departed the I-75 RV Park at 9:30 am to get thru Atlanta early. Well it didn’t matter, traffic was backed up before we even got there. I was debating to drive straight thru or use the I-285 by-pass. As we approached the I-285 by-pass that decision was made for me, it was closed because of an accident on the ramp. We were stopped in traffic for about an hour but it finally got moving. Once you get pass the by-pass the traffic was moving, but there was a lot more traffic than I thought I would encounter on Saturday. After that drive we...

2015 Family Cruise

Sep 24, 2015 - Chattanooga

Today, we left Creekwood Resort and let GPS route us to Chattanooga via the local back roads. Carol, Gary and I went through some beautiful areas of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, and the Cherokee National Forest. Part of the route was very winding and steep, but Gary managed. Those air brakes are handy. We arrived in Chattanooga only to discover the Iron Man Marathon was in town! Raccoon Mountain Campground had one site available for one night only, so we took it. That's when the fun began--no not really. Gary maneuvered into our...

Aug 7, 2015 - Chattanooga

For the first time we started driving in rain. Fortunately it wasn't coming done too hard but it's not pleasant having to prepare to leave the campsite and hook up the car to the RV. We rode through Nashville and the drive went smoothly. After about an hour the rain stopped and we drove through the mountains that one passes through to get to Chattanooga. There was some kind of incident that resulted in a traffic tie-up in Chattanooga. At 1:00 p.m. we arrived at our campground which is off exit 1 on I 75. We are now in the Eastern time zone...

Jul 11, 2015 - Traveling to Chattanooga

We stayed our first night at L & D Campground in Forsyth, GA. It is a quiet little Campground about 2 miles off I-75. We drove to Marietta, GA on Saturday to my sister's home. Good to see her and Gil. My brother, Stanley, and wife Debbie were visiting from Bushnell. Also got to see nephew Steve, wife Cathy, and kids Kenny, Austin and Katie. We had a great lunch with awesome dessert. We left and drove to the Georgia-Tennessee line and stayed at Best Holiday Trav-L-Park. The campground is located on a Civil War battle field and the streets in...

Apr 16, 2015 - Savannah, TN to Chattanooga, TN

4-16-15 Savannah, TN to Chattanooga, TN. Shiloh Battlefield It was 76 degrees at 7AM so looking like a fine day ahead. After breakfast at 8AM, I was off to visit the Shiloh Battlefield. Julie was not up to it so she laid low. The National Park Service has done an excellent job with this place. It is one of the best preserved historic sites in the country. There are certainly lots of beautiful monuments and an abundance of old artillery pieces scattered around the Military Park. The visitor center had a good museum and a short film on the...

Bison and Balloons

Jul 3, 2014 - Travel Day

What a day! The trip started off well enough. Getting up at a leisurely 3:30 AM, boarding the shuttle to ATL at 5:00 AM and straight to the Atlanta airport. Curbside check-in and at the gate with McDonald’s in hand by 7:30 - easy-peasy. Flight left on time at 9:45 and arrived in Seattle early - 5 hours later. But, that’s where things started to go downhill in a hurry. Called to the gate for the Alaska flight – they had changed planes and had to re-assign our seats. No problem. Oh and the plane was a little “delayed” - by over an hour! OK,...

May 29, 2014 - Chattanooga

Chattanooga is an interesting place. It is almost on the border of Georgia and only a few miles from Alabama. The big items of tourism interest in Chattanooga are, Ruby Falls, Rock City, the steepest incline railway in the world (at 72 Degrees in one place) and the Battle of Chickamauga. The battle took place 18 - 20 September 1863 over about 10,000 acres and consisted of around 170,000 men. After 3 days of fighting totals were 34,000 KIA, MIA or wounded with the south coming second in the battle. Lily and I did the self guided tour of the...
