Jun 16, 2018 - Chattanooga - Doing tourist stuff.

Wednesday Eric came up from Marietta to have an overnight visit. Wednesday we decided to see Ruby Falls. It had been over 20 years since our last visit. I had forgotten how beautiful the falls are. Things had changed a little, they now have WiFi available down in the cavern. Amazing WiFi available 260 feet below ground. The presentation of the falls was improved too now with digital lighting. Thursday we went to the Tennessee Aquarium. Besides the freshwater aquarium they now have a salt water aquarium. We spent about three hours between...

Jun 13, 2018 - Chattanooga Update

Still here in Chattanooga. Monday the part for our washing machine arrived and we were scheduled in Tuesday morning to have it installed. Installation went great. They had the washing machine out, installed the new control board and reinstalled the washing machine before noon. Once we got back to our site and setup, June started doing laundry. Seven loads of clothes later she was done. The washing machine worked great. I was a little concerned about going to a Camping World for repairs. From personal experience and other's experiences...

Jun 8, 2018 - Stuck in Chattanooga for three weeks!

We left Adairsville, GA Wednesday and arrived here in Chattanooga at the Camping World campground. Not the campground we would normally choose, but our clothes washer quit working and this was the only service center we could get into before the end of July! Since we have a 'service contract' we have never used we decide to have one of our rooftop air conditions looked at because it has never worked in heat pump mode. Having both fixed there is only one deductible for both repairs. The service checked out the clothes washer and decide it...

Jun 28, 2017 - Tennessee/our property

Our first destination was to check the property in Tennessee, so we stayed at the Chattanooga North KOA. The next day we went to our property which was completely grown up with weeds in the three months since we were there…got a guy I’ll have to pay to go out there to bush-hog it…that’s what happens when you don’t keep up with the mowing. It rained a LOT in Tennessee this spring. We ate at our favorite restaurant in Cleveland (nothing special, but it’s the best they’ve got), O’Charleys. We stayed an extra day to rest and cook out, (and go...

May 5, 2017 - Russell Cave

From our base near Chattanooga, we drove to Bridgeport, AL to visit the Russell Cave National Monument. It is a cave where pre-historic Indians lived during the winter months. The cave was declared a National Monument in 1961 by JFK due to the large number of artifacts found here and the length of time the cave was used (almost 9,000 years). The cave is about a half a mile from the ranger's station which we passed on due to the heavy rain. To get to the cave, you pass through the town of South Pittsburg, TN, the home of Lodge cast iron...

May 3, 2017 - Battle for Chattanooga!!!

We are ON THE ROAD AGAIN and both of us are happy to be and look forward to a relaxing summer...... Steph's new knee is working well - she doesn't move any faster, but she doesn't wince as much. Hopefully, when the other knee is done in October, the wincing will be gone altogether. Before we left, we observed a timely and pointed sign at the FloraBama bar, which Steph got a picture of – “No, we don’t have wifi . . . Talk to each other!”. Also, Steph kept observing a bird flying into one of the bushes on our lot. In peeking into the bush,...

Dec 27, 2016 - half way back

The weatherman said that to have a White Christmas, you have to have at least an inch of snow. After one of the coldest snowiest Decembers we can remember, a warm front came through and took that 2+ feet of snow right down, leaving barely that inch for Christmas Day. The sump pump in the basement was working hard. The warmth made taking down the outdoor decorations SO much easier. It's hard to wind up those stiff wires when the temperature is well below freezing. It felt a bit Scroogey to be taking the Christmas tree down so soon, but there...

May 8, 2016 - Chattanooga to Frankfort, KY

We got on the road before 9 this morning, heading from Chattanooga to Knoxville, then Lexington and on to Frankfort, the capitol of Kentucky, where we will spend tonight and tomorrow night. We decided to take this route as opposed to traveling through Nashville, as we were never here and Glenn is interested in the Bourbon Trail. Beautiful lush, green scenery as we headed up through the Blue Ridge Mountains, and part of the eastern Tennessee area of Appalachia. There was little traffic and the ride was leisurely, at least for me as I wasn't...

Apr 7, 2016 - Chattanooga Area Waterfalls

Thursday we headed towards Chattanooga for some more waterfalls. Our first stop was at Foster Falls in South Cumberland State Park. We first made a short hike to the overlook with pretty good views of the waterfall. A few of the waterfalls we had visited this week had rather poor views from overlooks, but from here, we could see the entire waterfall, unobstructed by trees and foliage. Then we got on Fiery Gizzard Trail and crossed the creek on a bridge upstream of the falls. There was another overlook on this side. The view of the main...

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.

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...

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...
