Apr 24, 2017 - Beautiful Tennessee

The drive from last night's campsite to I-40 was stunning. We would love to have stopped to take pictures, but there was no place to pull off the road and a car was right behind us. The driving was much easier today--mostly cloudy but NO RAIN. :) We got a late start and only drove a couple of hundred miles. We stopped in Nashville at the Bentley Art Gallery because their website looked like the sort of art we hope to get in the Heartland show. Turned out that what they had on display was primarily abstract, but the woman running the place...

Jul 23, 2013 - Cumberland Mountain TN

The purpose of this stop was to meet up with Geri and her husband, Pat. Geri and I lived across the street from each other over 50 years ago and we try to meet up somewhere once a year. This time we were joined by her brother, Robbie, and it was great to see him again. We all enjoyed our visit and going down "memory lane". We stayed at the Cumberland Mountain State Park campground. The sites were paved and ours had full hook-ups (30 amp). They stayed in a cabin which was named "Coon Hollow" and it had an interesting design. We saw a doe and...

Cumberland Mountain State Park, Tennessee. We had a very exciting drive today, through the NC mountains, then the Tennessee mountains, then that humongous storm that was flying eastward. That was not much fun but we made it through and the weather now is just beautiful. Our first overnight was a cinch to set up, we ate the 2nd halves of our Subways for supper and are sitting by our tent saying hey to all the people passing by and listening to the birds saying goodnight to each other. Sigh.

Weather: Cool…..Highs in mid 80’s, Lows in the 60’s Howdy Family and Friends: Here we are in Cumberland County Tennessee on top of the plateau! It is roughly 65 miles from Maryville.

The park is quiet and peaceful immediately after a big holiday blow out. We love this park, and have all ways enjoyed coming...

May 1, 2008 - Cumberland Mountain State Park

From Cumberland Mountain State Park, near Crossville, Tennessee, between Knoxville & Nashville. Picking-up from the end of the previous journal entry, where I was waiting for my requested work to be finished at the Freightliner shop……. Just as I was completing the posting of that entry, I was notified that the Phaeton was ready to go. An issue arose when I reviewed the invoice, but I will hold comment of that situation while the Service Manager has an opportunity to respond. After leaving the Freightliner shop, we had about a 50-mile ride...

Jul 5, 2005 - Cumberland Mountain State Park, Tennessee

We loaded up the grandkids and headed north to Cumberland Mountain State Park. When we got up there, the lady at the campground desk told us to take any spot, so we inadvertantly took a handicapped location. I was so ignorant that I didn't recognize the sewer and water connections. Regardless, we made it OK. Storms were forecast for the area, so we left a day early.
