Mar 20, 2013 - Back in Pigeon Forge

Well, we are back on the road again. Hopefully, this time it will be a permanent thing as we have put our house on the market - when it sells we will become “full-timers”. Keep good thoughts for us that the house sells sooner rather than later. For those of you who saw the news about the Pigeon Forge wildfire, we are fine. We could see the fire and smoke from our campground as it was just over the ridge from us but fortunately the wind was blowing in the right direction and the fire missed us. We did hear lots and lots of sirens and watched...

Sep 17, 2012 - Pigeon Forge

Day 3 of the Great Washington Adventure Saturday broke sunny and pleasant, we had already hooked up the night before so decided we would get on the road and put a little distance between us and Bull Run Campground. We haven’t said much about the RV park, except mentioning the kidnapping of Jean’s plant, so in favor of the park I need to say it is a very nice State Regional Park. If you are looking for a place to camp and visit Washington, it is ideal and we recommend it. With that short commercial intro, onto the next few days adventure. I...

2012 Gettysburg

Sep 3, 2012 - In the Home Stretch

Our 2012 season at Dollywood is coming to its close. We’ve been here since mid-March and will be leaving on the 11th of September. Time to move back to the North Ga Mountains. This past month has been hot. And some days were long. During Dollywood Nights (July 30 to August 12) the park was open from 10 am to 10 pm. And our college kids were done at the end of the first week – we were sorry to see them go – they were a really nice bunch of young people, polite, good-looking, intelligent, and we hope that some or most of them come back next...

Aug 8, 2012 - Tennessee Trip (June 2012)

Day 1: The drive up. Day 2: Spent the day in Gatlinburg. Went on the skylift, and then in the Guiness world records museum. Ate in the Pizza Hut. Then, we went on the space needle. After that, we went into the Wax Museum. Last, we went into the "Castle of Chaos", and played some kind of first person shooter game. I won, by a lot. Day 3: We went into Cade's Cove. Only saw one bear this time. We took a 2 hour hike to see Abram's falls. Day 4: We went down to Chattanooga and did the usual. Lookout Mountain, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the...

Aug 8, 2012 - Tennessee Trip (November 2006)

Pretty much the same stuff we did for all of our other Tennessee vacations, only over the Thanksgiving holidays. It snowed one day, which was pretty cool. This trip was when I first got really good at pool, and when I first started to really like Green Day lol. States passed through: Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee.

Jul 30, 2012 - A Busy Month

Yeah, I know – it’s been a long time since our last update. We are still alive and well, busy and busy. This month has been Kids Fest at Dollywood – tons and tons of them. The weather has continued to be very hot with occasional downpours. While we have enjoyed a few less hours of working since the college kids have arrived, they are now in the process of leaving, just as Dollywood Nights comes along. Park hours during Kids Fest were 9am-8pm; during DW Nights, the park is open 10am-10pm. Soooooo, we are going to be working longer hours...

Jul 5, 2012 - Happy 4th of July - Late!

Well, here it is July already and it's been a long time between postings. In June, I went home on the 9th to spend two weeks with our granddaughters, Alex and Darby. Blue Ridge Community Theater in our hometown of Blue Ridge, GA runs a two week drama camp every summer called SunnyD. Our granddaughters have been attending it for the last 7 years. This year Alex was a Director (leader/counselor)of the Tweens group (8-12 year olds) and Darby was a camper in the Teens group. Rick decided to stay and work. The girls and I made a trip to Pigeon...

Jun 23, 2012 - A Visit to Applewood Farms

Today we went to Applewood Farms, a restaurant we have loved in past visits to Pigeon Forge. The food was as good as ever and after lunch we wandered around the property, shopping in the shops there. After lunch we crept back (literally, traffic is awful on 441) and spent the rest of the day reading. Tomorrow we leave for West Virginia.

Jun 22, 2012 - The First Leg of Our Trip

Beginning Mileage 20085 Ending Mileage 20225 Creekside RV Resort 2475 Henderson Springs Rd. Pigeon Forge, TN 37863, 865-428-4801 8/9/9 After getting a late start, we headed up U.S.411. The ride was uneventful and we made good time until we got 4 miles from Pigeon Forge and we came to a crawl. Pigeon Forge is nothing like it used to be. It is now one big tourist trap and very crowded. The RV Park is nice and we will only be here for two nights so we will just stay off of the strip as much as possible.

Jun 13, 2012 - Pigeon Forge...the glitz of Tennessee

We left Atlanta at 8am this morning heading for Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was a fairly long, 4 hour, drive, all interstate. Had wanted to go the scenic route but Tom-Tom decided otherwise, taking us the quickest route. Stopped off for breakfast at Denny's, not bad but nothing to write home about. Then we stopped off at a Super Walmart where Gaz proceeded to purchase yet more clothes. He's not having any space in my suitcase on the way home I can tell you!! I did actually purchase a top for myself. I spent all of $12 for this last of the...

May 29, 2012 - Events In May

This journal covers April 27 to May 29, 2012 It doesn’t seem possible that another month has gone by. We haven’t been doing a very good job of keeping up with our journal. We do have an excuse. For retired people, we sure do work a lot of days and hours. That’s the result of our work ethic and the fact that our Team Leads recognize that we get the job done and are dependable. Our friends the Pattersons and Austins are in the same boat. It’s good to be wanted I guess and to know our parents taught us right! Rick also is recognized by his...
