Jul 26, 2017 - Stone's River National Battlefield

July 26, 2017, Today we are headed to Smyrna, Tennessee and Stone’s River National Battlefield. We decided to leave the campground by turning right, bad choice, gravel road for 5 miles. Other than that trip was good. We find our campground, get set up, turn on the AC, unfortunately, the 50 amp service is not that good, so only one AC. We head off to Murfreesboro and the park. Stone’s River battle took place Dec. 30, 1862 – Jan. 2,1863. The victory here opened the way into the Confederate heartland. It crippled the South’s ability to supply...

Oct 16, 2015 - Stones River National Battlefield

In the morning we took Shooter to Mansker’s Station for his morning walk. This time we discovered an off leash area for dogs so Shooter thoroughly enjoyed his run. Around 10:30 we headed east from our RV Park towards the town of Gattlin which took us past some beautiful Tennessee acreages with large brick houses and large rolling green front lawns. The houses and yards around the town of Lebanon were much poorer. We actually stopped at a yard sale along the way that had all kinds of collectible junk that most of us would have sent to the...

May 18, 2014 - Stones River National Historic Battlefield and Cemetary

We left the trace to head to Smyrna, Tennessee where Paula has kinfolks. They were kind enough to let us stay with them for 3 days! We insisted on leaving because we did not wish to wear out our welcome. We took time out to visit Stones River National Battlefield and Cemetery near Murfreesboro, TN. We had been to this battlefield site before. But, at the time I did not know my great-great grandfather was buried in the National Cemetery. I am so glad I got a picture of the grave site. I was not able to find out any information regarding his...

Jul 26, 2012 - July 22-26, 2012 -- Cedars of Lebanon State Park, Tennessee to Red Bay, Alabama

July 22-26, 2012 – Cedars of Lebanon State Park, Tennessee to Red Bay, Alabama July 22 – Yep, you read that right. I’m on my way back to Red Bay. When we had the really hard rain a couple of days ago, I had a new leak. Since I was only 200 miles from Red Bay, I decided to come back here to get it fixed. I was up and ready to go at 8, but I couldn’t get out of my parking space. The people parked next to me on the left had left their truck sticking out in the road. The folks across from me also had their truck sticking out in the road. I...

Jul 21, 2012 - July 21, 2012 -- Murfreesboro and Cedars of Lebanon State Park, Tennessee

July 21, 2012 – Murfreesboro and Cedars of Lebanon State Park, Tennessee This morning there was the cutest little trailer in the park. It must have come in late last night. It looks like a little house – and I mean a LITTLE house. There are pictures of it on Picasso. As soon as I can figure out how to add pictures here, I’ll add them to the blog. Right now there is a technical problem which they are working on. The only thing on today’s agenda was a visit to Cannonsburgh Village. Cannonsburgh is the original name of Murfreesboro. Minos...

Jul 20, 2012 - July 20, 2012 -- Smyrna, Murfreesboro and Lebanon, Tennessee

July 20, 2012 – Smyrna, Murfreesboro and Lebanon, Tennessee To finish out the Sam Davis saga, I visited his birthplace and home today. I’ve done his life in reverse, but I’ve covered all the bases now. It is a nice home, but I did not tour it. I took a couple of pictures and went on my way to the Stones River National Battlefield and the Fortress Rosecrans. The battle here was fought from December 31, 1862 to January 2, 1863. Lincoln had pushed Rosecrans, who was positioned in Nashville, to engage the South. Confederate attacks in Maryland...

We will update this site as we get closer to leaving and all throughout our trip - please keep the link and follow along with us! Heather and Lisa

Oct 22, 2010 - The Final Leg

Well, we left the Knox Hill Campground around 8:30 am to begin the final leg home. It was only about 6 hours if we did not stop for anything but you know that never happens. We stopped three times briefly and were able to arrive home around 2 p.m. central. It gave us enough time to unload before having to shower and get out the door for an engagement that we had scheduled before leaving. We are going to a banjo/sing that Ray's banjo teacher is participating in. It should be fun. It's in a fun location called Bell Buckle, a cute little...

Oct 21, 2010 - Tennessee to New Orleans

We left Tennessee on October 18th at 7:45 am and traveled to New Orleans arriving at the New Orleans KOA about 6:45 pm. I took a few photos of our Tennessee Autumn so that you could see that we do get a color change but not quite as vibrant as those in the East; however, it does lend itself to change. Our greeting party (Bob and Linda Dow) waved us in and then Bob helped with the backing in and Linda took a call from her kids. It was a very long day and we decided that in the future we will break out trips into smaller chunks.

Sep 20, 2010 - Camping in the Boondocks or Annie get your gun!

Hi Guys! We stopped in Kentucky finally....after traveling through half of Missouri, part of Illinois and finally in Kentucky...what a long day! We left early the next morning for Murfreesboro, TN to visit with Clinton's Sister, Delores; we only get to see her about once every year or so. We had a wonderful time...we got to go to Joe Cahoon's 16th birthday dinner (He is Delore's grandson). We saw Gloria, Delore's daughter and Bruce and Trish and Claire, Joe's family. And we SHOPPED, SHOPPED, SHOPPED.....and I lost my car key. We backtracked...

Jun 30, 2009 - June, 2009--Murfreesboro, TN

Boy, how time flies when you are having FUN. It sure was sad to see Rufas & Muffit go out of sight, but this family seems like it will be SO MUCH FUN. They are called the "Sanders Family". I don't exactly know what "Bubba" does for a living, but I DO KNOW that we hit an AWFUL LOT of yard sales during the month. Why, I thought one day, he was GOING TO SELL ME. Someone walked up and commented about how "cute" they thought I was, and the next thing I Knew, Bubba had put a PRICE one me. TEN thousand dollars seemed a little steep, but,...

May 16, 2009 - Homeward Bound

Day 8 - Time to go home. All good things must come to an end..including vacations. We got up at 5:30 to make a 9:30 flight. Walking through the casino around 6:45, we were surprised to see there were still people gambling on the slot machines and drinking beer...obviously still there from the night before. I've been told that the casino's pump in oxygen just to keep people feeling refreshed. I guess it works! Our flight landed around 3:00, and our friend Debby was waiting for us. After a quick lunch at Ruby Tuesdays we headed to her house...
