Oct 23, 2019 - Nashville, TN

Nashville is the country music capital, and it's also a really big city with big city traffic and prices. We are stopping here for 2 days/3 nights to tour some Nashville landmarks and hear some good country music. We will also visit with nephew Shawn and his family. We started well by meeting Shaw, Linda Claire, and 14-month-old Blake at a nice place for dinner, along with his cousin from his father's side Billy, who we have met a few times over the years. We had a nice time. On Thursday we caught the free campground shuttle to downtown...

Oct 10, 2019 - Nashville

Yesterday we drove southwest taking I 71 from Walton through a forest of mostly russet-coloured deciduous trees over low mountains down into river valleys. We stopped in Clermont, Kentucky at the Jim Bean American Stillhouse. We took the 10a tour with Tyler....an enthusiastic guide. We learned that the mash is 70% corn, 23% rye and 7% malt. We learned the process of heating, distilling and aging. We tried the clear 127% proof wine before aging by dipping a finger into a mason jar...no need to worry about contaminates. Alcohol kills all. We...

Sep 21, 2019 - 31st STOP - Nashville Shores, TN

9/21/19 - We are in the Nashville Shores RV Park for our last night on the road just East of Nashville. Nashville sure is confusing coming East on I 40. Too many Interstates are coming into and off I 40. This RV Park has a huge waterpark, but it closed for the season just before we got here. The Park is right on a lake and one of the toyhauler fifth wheel trailers was backed up to the water edge and the rear deck was out over the lakes edge. Neat. Tomorrow is a long day and we lose an hour by crossing the Eastern Time Zone.

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...

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...

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...
