Jun 27, 2019 - Ryman

Downtown Nashville, Donald Trump and Kim Jung Un, scooters everywhere, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades from Wisconsin and Leftover Salmon from Colorado. Lulas Cafe, knife key chain We went downtown and walked the Main Street to see the original hang outs, saw Donald Trump and Kim Jung Un but didn’t get a photo because their handlers were sure to get money if you took a shot. Then we saw some of the roof top diners - as hot as it is most of the restaurants are open so you can hear the music going on inside. Can’t see how that’s attractive and...

2019 trip

Jun 26, 2019 - Cooters garage and Opryland hotel

We went to Home Depot and bought a 2x2 board to go on the table to keep the Traeger from bending it. The folding tables at Camping World were supposed to support 60 lbs but looked too flimsy. This will work for now. Then we went to see Cooter’s garage - a place with lots of Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia. The Willie Nelson museum was next door - a large gift shop and we passed on the museum. Then we walked through the Opryland Hotel. It’s still beautiful and impressive. They wanted $32 for parking so we just parked at the shopping center and...

2019 trip

Jun 25, 2019 - Parthenon

There is a blue sky and the humidity is down so it’s somewhat comfortable today - only day there will be any heat relief. We went many places today. First to Camping World that is about 1/2 mile from us. Then to Harbor Freight to get straps in case we ever need to be pulled out of the mud again. Then to the AAA office for a New York tour book and some great visitor information about Nashville. Onto the Parthenon that has been on the bucket list for some time. As we drove to it we passed Vanderbilt University - they are currently playing in...

May 22, 2019 - Nashville

When we got to Nashville, it was extremely hot and humid. From all we were told, this has been an unusual spring with way more rain than usual and now higher temperatures than usual. While Jay set up the RV, Rocky and I went for a walk to the dog park at the RV park. Rocky seemed to enjoy wandering without his leash but it really was hot, so we didn’t stay long. We opted for dinner at home and then went to hear the live music that the RV park provided that night. We relaxed in lounge chairs by the pool as we listened to 2 great...

May 21, 2019 - Nashville Arrival

Fairly short run from our Harvest Host stopover at Three Rivers Farm last night. We stopped for fuel, then arrived about 2:30, got site H16 at the KOA Nashville. After setting up, cleaning up, and some pulled pork for dinner, we headed to the Veterans Appreciation show at the Grand Old Opry. Great lineup that included Trace Adkins, Lee Greenwood, Brantley Gilbert and several others. They put on quite a show, with several tributes to veterans.

May 2, 2019 - Heading Home

We're more than halfway on our 1800 mile trip back to West Branch. We left Texas 3 weeks ago but are taking our time and enjoying the ride. Put a big dent in our pocketbook before we got out of Texas with RV repairs but fortunately we found a very knowledgeable mobile repair guy in Beaumont and he was able to get us on our way. Just hate the stress of having things go wrong, not to mention the $$$$. We were able to avoid the storms that were moving through Texas and Louisiana but we were held up 1 extra day in Kinder, Louisiana waiting for...

May 1, 2019 - Nickname for Nashville is Music City

In Nashville on Broadway, nearly every doorway is a bar with a live band. Sometimes the stage is right there at the front window and the window is wide open. You can literally touch the band from the sidewalk. It was hard to decide which one to go into because all the bands were very good. No place had a cover charge so we could have walked into all of the bars. We decided on a rooftop bar. This place had one band on the ground floor and a different one on the rooftop. Right next door was a Bar-B-Que place, called Jack Cawthon's, which we...

Apr 15, 2019 - Nashville KOA

Where has the winter gone? It seems like a short time ago that we made the trip south. Two days ago we started our trip back home. We decided to go north on I-95 to Jacksonville and then west on I-10 to Lake City. From there we headed north on I-75 to Cordele, Georgia. We are traveling north with our friend Larry, and he likes to stop at the KOA here. His reasoning for staying here is, being Sunday, Atlanta should be relatively easy to drive through. We got a good start yesterday, amid warnings of storms and possible tornadoes. We got to...

Apr 5, 2019 - Nashville, Tennessee

On the Road Again Before we left Cape Lookout, we had decided three things: 1) We are going to take the “blue roads” as much as possible, i.e., avoiding freeways; 2) The route suggested by Google Maps would take us through three state capital – Nashville, TN, Lincoln, NE, and Cheyenne, WY; and 3) We are going to take most of the month of April to get to Olympia. Then reality burst on the scene. It seems that way too many of the “off freeway” roads between Harkers Island and Nashville through the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian...

Mar 28, 2019 - Music City Part 2

After we left Tupelo we drove to Merriwether Lewis campground at mile marker 385 on the Natchez Trace. This is the site where Merriwether Lewis, of Lewis and Clark fame, died while exploring the Trace. He had fallen ill and was taken to the Grinder House just off the Trace. President Thomas Jefferson had so admired Lewis, both as a friend and as his secretary, he ensured that his place in history and his final resting place was properly memorialized. We traveled the last 59 miles of the Trace and then headed into Nashville. We took 7 days...

Nov 23, 2018 - Thanksgiving in Tennessee

My son and his family spent Thanksgiving in Utah exploring different colleges that my granddaughter may be interested in, and my daughters spent Thanksgiving together with their kids and friends at home in Sonora, CA. I spent most of it sleeping. Wednesday was my 4th night in a row at work and I was even more pooped in that dreaded 10th hour than I usually am. Slept very soundly when I got home. I had stopped by a Walmart in Murfreesboro - almost too nice and shiny and actually attractive in and out to be a Walmart - on the way home to get...

Oct 27, 2018 - Gettin' Stronger in Tennessee

My truck started making a bad hum when accelerating and seemed to get louder every night driving to work. I found a great little shop that took it, fixed it and even gave me a loaner in the interim. Nolensville Auto Care is in the town of Nolensville (surprise!) which is a darling little town about three blocks long with three antique stores and my auto shop. The loaner was a 1994 Pontiac with a souped up muffler that could be heard for miles when I put that pedal to the metal. The car ran great and it had a hologram in its windshield! Day...
