Sep 15, 2017 - Morristown TN – Walmart Parking Lot

Well, we hadn’t planned any stops today, but as we were rolling down Interstate 81, Roger saw a sign for the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site. How could we pass up a visit to the home and gravesite of the 17th president? I must say, I didn’t know much about Johnson except that he had been impeached. I came away with a new understanding of the man. In the first place, when Lincoln was assassinated, he was left with the difficult job of rebuilding the Union after the Civil War. Considering the Confederacy is still alive and well in parts...

Retired at Last!

Apr 17, 2016 - Yard Sale/Flea Market Saturday

I got up early Saturday morning to take some pictures in a valley we passed while we drove into Sevierville. In the valley were a couple of farms and the Fox Cemetery. The cemetery was near the site of an early German settlement, the "Old Dutch Settlement". A fort stood nearby. The cemetery was named after Mark Fox who was killed by Indians on Muddy Creek, 1787 and was buried in the Cemetery. An early Lutheran church is believed to have been near the cemetery but is no longer visible. There were some rough hewn grave stones in the cemetery...

2016 Winter Trek

May 17, 2011 - More Dollywood Adventures

The last two weeks have been busy. Rick and I both worked more days than we have worked before. On Thursday, May 5 Dolly Parton came to town for her Pigeon Forge Homecoming Weekend. As she does each year, she posed for photos with the Hosts working at Dollywood in groups of 20. You can see Rick’s and my picture with her. On Friday, she made several appearances around Dollywood including being in a parade through the park. I wasn’t working that day though Rick was. She then was in the Pigeon Forge annual Homecoming Parade which I also...

Aug 25, 2010 - Walmart

No RV trip is complete without a Walmart stay. We knew we had to put in a long driving day, and we couldn't find a reasonably priced, convenient campground for a short night. We verified with customer service that overnighting was ok and scoped out the lot. We decided to park along a back wall where we could use the kitchen and bedroom slide-outs. It was near the loading docks but we thought the traffic would be limited. It was better back there than on the main driveway but it turns out that Walmart has lots of deliveries all night...

Summer - 2010

Mar 30, 2010 - Day #44

Day #44, Tuesday March 30, 2010: Brenda had set out some bird seed on the picnic table last night and we awoke this a.m. to a wonderful show right beside our trailer. Nine different species feeding on our table including Red Bellied, Red Headed and Downy woodpeckers! Brenda tried wildlife photography. The remainder of the day wasn't as nearly as successful. I'd been trying since we left Alabama to secure some info on our planned trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway, where to start, how best to arrive there, where to camp during the trip, etc. Now...
