Jan 6, 2017 - In A Bar In Toledo, WKRP and more

First stop of the day was to find a Walmart, so we could get a cheap phone for use in the US. We thought it would have a McDonald's and we could grab a quick breakfast. But, no, this one had Subway, who would have thought! At least Micky D's was just across the road. Mike tried to clean the windows so Michelle could take better pictures, but it was tough at 17 Fahrenheit. As we departed Toledo in the cold but sunny morning, Mike was struggling. He kept singing over and over... mumbling and whistling and even singing out loud... 'In a bar in...

Texas Again

Oct 11, 2015 - Calvert City KY to Goodlettsville TN

Today we woke up thinking of friends and family back home in Canada as some would be celebrating Canadian thanksgiving today rather than on Monday. We saw some wild turkeys around the pond this morning and might have attempted to catch one to cook for ourselves but the oven in the 5th wheel is way too small to cook a turkey, lol. Today we moved 120 miles south to a campground at Goodlettsville, Tennessee, just north of Nashville where we will stay for the next two weeks. It is close enough to Nashville to attend the Grand Ole Opry and to...

Jun 20, 2015 - Homes of the stars

We have been at the Eagle for a few days. Thursday the motor was supposed to be delivered, I looked at the tracking first thing in the AM and it was on a truck in Ocala for delivery. I called Rare Electrical, they acknowleged their system sent it the wrong place, was supposed to be taken off the truck and rerouted to Indiana. At 10 AM it was placed on our porch at Leeward. Called again, they now have it set to be delivered in Goodlettsville Friday. Called Robin and Sue to be sure it was not taken into the house and would be there for UPS...

2015 Eagle trip

Jun 17, 2015 - Grand Ole Opry

It is still hot. I found a shopping center close to us with Petsmart, Walmart, Target, Harbor Freight, etc. We went in the afternoon to the Grand Ole Opry to get our tickets and were able to take in the Backstage Tour. We had been backstage in the Ryman but not the Opry so this was not a repeat. We saw the area where Hee Haw was produced, the mail boxes for the stars and several of the dressing rooms. Each one has a theme and they were very spacious, there are no make up artists, stars just come as they will be on stage. There is a large...

2015 Eagle trip

Jun 16, 2015 - Nashville Hot

We are here at the hottest time this year in Nashville, last time temps were this high was August 2014. The actual temperature is 95 and the heat index is over 100. We stayed in the Eagle yesterday and Ray got the shower bar back up. Today we went to the new Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville and saw the new football stadium and new arena right next door. Also the Ryman is right there too, a much better location for the Hall of Fame than last time we were here. It was so hot that we walked some, then went into a honky tonk and...

2015 Eagle trip

Jun 14, 2015 - Goodlettsville Grand Ole RV Park

We arrived in the PM, we are now in Central Time. The spot is level but Ray used the jacks anyway. The WIFI is blocked by a Diplomat next to us. At night we found the HD on Dish isn't coming in - called many times and was on long holds. Apparently there is a tree that is in just the right spot to block the HD satellite - even though we do not have any trees right near us. We are going to stay here 7 nights and then decide whether to go to Dayton for 3 nights or not. The shower handle came off last night - the screw is rusted through. Always...

May 3, 2014 - Manskers Station--Final Day of Spring Rally

Final day of Chapter 42 Spring Rally. Tomorrow we start the rolling rally to Goshen, IN for the Escapade. Today we took a tour of the Manskers Station. The Mansker's Station reflects the true pioneer spirit and dedication of Kasper Mansker, who settled the Goodlettsville area in 1780. It was on the west side of Mansker Creek that he built his first station, which the inhabitants would leave in the winter of 1780-1781 due to increasing attacks from Indians.

Today started off with a light breakfast at 8am. Had toast, juice and doughnuts. Then it was a day on your own. So we took an adventure to find the Container Store.

Apr 1, 2013 - Gardendale, AL to Goodlettsville, TN

Monday, April 1st – We arrived at Nashville Country RV Park – site 35 – around 10:30am. After hooking up the electrical, water, and sewer; we went over to visit my mom at the Phoenix Flea Market. Well, because Nancy, my sister, was not there to take her to work, she was at home. We went to the house to surprise her there. After catching up a little, we decided to go to the Cracker Barrel! For those of you who do not know, my mom is 92 years old and she has a booth at a small flea market in Old Hickory, TN, where she takes orders for picture...

Nov 6, 2012 - Chore Day

Today we started of by doing four loads of laundry then went into Nashville to Neely's Bar-b-que for lunch. It was delicious. We both had the small pulled pork platters and brought enough home for a couple of sandwiches. When we got back, we settled in for the evening (of election results) and got ready to head home on Wednesday.
