Aug 27, 2009 - 2010 Plans

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. Yea, sometimes I am just amazed at what can be done with modern technology. Even more, oftentimes I am amazed that I can fumble my way through to use some of that modern technology. As I’ve said several (maybe too many) times already, I’ve been working on developing our plans for our 2010 travel. I’ve been working with MapQuest to develop the approximate routing plans. I am amazed enough that such a thing as MapQuest can be so useful. Now what has amazed me even more is...

Jul 31, 2009 - Mobility

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. As I sit & think about what has happened since the last entry that is worthy of discussion, the one word that ties everything together is “mobility”. No, no, it’s not what you might think. It’s not mobility as in Phae rolling on down the road, not yet anyway, though I can’t deny that that picture is beginning to creep into my nocturnal visions & yeah, we are thinking more & more during our conscious state about our route, stops, schedule, etc. In this case, mobility has...

Jul 17, 2009 - Let's See

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. You wanna hear some real honesty?? OK, here it is. I have no idea where this entry is headed, but I have felt an urge the last day or two to sit down & write, so here goes. It is gonna be sorta like some of our drives…..just start rambling down the road & when the day ends, we look back to see where we have been. So, hang on. The urge to write has not been the only urge that has been trying to sneak in the last few days. The “hitchitch” urge has also been trying to creep...

Jul 7, 2009 - Two Down, One To Go

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. Two of the summer’s major holiday weekends are down, one more to go. We got through this one much better than we did the first one, for several reasons. I learned to pace myself much better, I’ve had a significant change of attitude about how much to involve myself & just in general it was a much calmer weekend. I have always said that we are each a product of our collective past experiences & I am definitely seeing that in my current life & attitude. My natural attitude...

Jul 1, 2009 - DECIDED....The Journal Will Continue

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN Picking up where the last entry left off, THANKS to the messages that seventeen of you have written in either the Guestbook or as direct emails related to that last entry, I will definitely be continuing the journal. I’m not sure what the content will be, but I’ll do my best to find something worth your reading time to write about every few days. To those of you who took the time & effort to express your thoughts, THANKS a bunch. I will never deny that I need those boosts...

Jun 20, 2009 - Not Much Happening

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN Not meaning to start-out with a turn-off, but there just isn’t much way to do otherwise. There just hasn’t been much going on here lately, at least that I can talk about. Vicki & I did go to the Greenbrier Restaurant in Gatlinburg for our 40th anniversary dinner as mentioned in the last journal entry. We enjoyed being there every bit as much as we always do. GyPSy Lady gave us a little grief finding the exact turnoff from the main highway. It has been a few years since...

May 28, 2009 - The Journal’s 3-Year Anniversary

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN It occurred to me a couple of days ago that the three-year anniversary of this journal had passed earlier this month. As I reflected on that thought & all of the experiences about which the journal has told in its various ways, I thought that some of you may be interested in a little three-year recap of the journal, not so much the details of the travel, etc, itself, but rather just its mechanics, etc……and then I fully expect/understand that some of you may be just as...

May 18, 2009 - Making It Homier

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. Three couples of readers have stayed a couple of nights each in the resort, it has rained bucket-loads almost every day for the last several, but other than that, the times have been rather uneventful. The crowds here have still been lighter than I would have expected, apparently being negatively affected by both the economy & the weather. Even the rigs that are permanently parked here are not drawing their owners for weekend visits. Like much of the rest of the country,...

Apr 6, 2009 - First Days at Caney Creek

From Caney Creek RV Resort, Harriman, 40 miles west of Knoxville, TN. This place has been every bit as nice as we had expected it to be & maybe a bit more. I can’t think of any detail that has been disappointing to us, but definitely there are several that have, to use that prevalent contemporary cliché, exceeded my expectations. I’ve only taken the three photos above & today is very cold & overcast, but I’ll get more in the next few days. The marina is about a half-mile away from the campground, by both road & water. It has been in...
