Jul 22, 2017 - Davey Crockett and Andrew Johnson

July 22, 2017, Today we are off to Tennessee and the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park. Nice park with full hookups and 50 amp service. Sites are paved but not very level and they are also narrow. We met some of our neighbors, the park is nearly full. The heat wave continues and after getting the AC up and going and talking with a young couple across from us we are off to Greeneville to visit the Andrew Johnson NHS. Johnson was the 17th president of the US and we watched the movie and toured the house where he lived. There is also the...

Oct 23, 2013 - Genealogy today and lunch at the Tannery

We are back in familiar territory. Stopped here in Greeneville TN about 4 years ago,to do some research on my Haney family. While I was looking up stuff Allen, got into a conversation with a fellow researcher who was researching Simpson. The surname of his great grandfather. Not considering he might have been in this area...but from further research at home he now thinks D E(dgar) Simpson was indeed from this area and he did not die as his grandma Eddie Lee always told but came back to this area in Greeneville, TN and remarried. We're...

Oct 28, 2012 - Greeneville, Tennesee Area

We are currently staying at Baileyton RV Park in Baileyton, TN. This little community is just off I-81, about 15 miles north of Greeneville, TN/an hour east of Knoxville that we arrived at Friday (10/26). The eastern part of Tennessee intrigues us, as we have found it to have beautiful mountain views and rolling hills. Our intent was to spend several days here, driving around to scope out if this would be an acceptable area to relocate down the road. Unfortunately, the weather has NOT been on our side:-( Yesterday (Saturday - 10/27) we...

Sep 3, 2012 - Last day in Tennessee before heading out to Colorado

We had a great Labor Day with family in East Tennessee. My brother Tim and his wife, Justine grilled out burgers, hot dogs and all the usual fixings. It was so nice to see everyone again. It was hard to say goodbye, especially to Mom & Dad. We'll miss everyone so much. However, we are going to make it a priority to see them once a year. It's now 9pm and we have showered and are in out pj's, ready for the first big day of our journey tomorrow. We're not sure how far we'll get tomorrow. We aren't making any campground reservations. We'll...

Sep 2, 2012 - It's family time in East Tennessee

Today was family time as we visited with Angela's extended family in East Tennessee for a couple of days. It was lots of good laughter, great southern cooking, and a house full of four generations of family. Cocoa was a little overwhelmed. She had never seen so many people in one room before. But, she got lots of petting and playtime, so it turned out to be fun. We are still recovering from the exhaustion of packing, cleaning and getting the house ready to sell. I don't think we've ever been so tired! We took a two hour nap when we got back...

Mar 18, 2006 - Through the Smokies

On the way through the Smokies, we decided to take the Smoky Mountain Train ride. Somewhat of a disappointment, but we got some great pictures. We can say that we rode a train in the 21st century. Driving through the Smokies, we saw some great mountains. We made the mistake of driving through downtown Gatlinburg - they were holding a cheerleading contest - thousands of people in a very small town. Would be a great place to do some shopping, but we didn't dare stop! Then on through Pigeon Forge - home of Dollywood - like Branson except a...

Dec 29, 2005 - Baileyton, TN

Today is Thursday, December 29th We resumed our journey south on I-81 at 6:30 this morning. Next stop was in Martinsburg, West Virginia for 7:00 a.m. breakfast -at a Cracker Barrel. All Cracker Barrel restaurants have a large stone fireplace in the main eating area. This particular restaurant had one of the biggest fires we've ever encountered. The restaurant wasn't crowded and the waitress sat us in front of a roaring fire. It felt good after a frosty night at the Wal-Mart parking lot. The morning dawned with a light fog and it looked like...

Dec 29, 2004 - Made it to TN

Hello from Baileyton, TN! It sure is hard to pack up a travel trailer when the temperature is in the teens! And to make matters worse, it was a mere 2 degrees Tuesday morning. We were hoping to leave by 9 a.m. NOT. It was just too cold! It was 12:45 p.m. (and 18 degrees) before we finally pulled out of our driveway. There was just enough snow near the top of our driveway to require the use of 4-wheel drive. Not only was the top of the driveway slick, so was the rest of Gore Road which also necessitated the use of all 4 wheels pulling...
