Sep 14, 2018 - September 14, 2018 – Marietta to Dalton, Georgia to Savannah, Tennessee

September 14, 2018 – Marietta to Dalton, Georgia to Savannah, Tennessee I got on the road about 8:15 this morning. Instead of taking the interstate to Dalton, I drove the back roads. I wasn’t in any hurry so it was fun to drive the back road and avoid all the traffic on I75. I got to John and Judy Schwenn’s about 11:30. I visited with John while Judy went to her hair appointment. Afterwards, we went to lunch. It was good to visit with them and get caught up on each other. I left there and headed west. I was well ahead of the storm which...

Jun 27, 2016 - Savannah, Tennessee

We left Allatoona Lake this morning and dropped the landing jacks in Savannah, Tennessee. Just a stop over place. We ran into a torrential rain storm on the way here. The radio was sounding flash flood warnings, and my cell phone was sending the same alerts. This is pretty scary when you do not know where there are low spots with fast running water. The rain was coming down so hard, I had to pull the RV to the side of the road for a while. We made it to the campground, but the electricala power was out, so I could not pay my bill right...

Where RV This Year?

Oct 16, 2015 - Savannah, TN - Green Acres RV Resort

Our trip from Cape Girardeau, MO to Savannah, TN covered 224 miles with about half of it interstates I-55 and I-155. The intersection of the two interstates was under construction so we had to take a five-mile detour upon leaving I-55 before being able to get to I-155. We crossed the Mississippi River on I-155 then took the back roads through Jackson, TN and on into the campground a little south of Savannah, TN. We are staying at the Green Acres RV Resort and have a full hookup, 50 amp, pull-through with the best WiFi we have seen in an RV...

Apr 15, 2015 - Vicksburg, MS to Savannah, TN

4-15-15 Vicksburg, MS to Savannah, TN Was a nice day, cloudy but the temperature in the morning was 68 degrees and got up around 80 later in the day, most importantly, no rain. Had breakfast then went shopping for much needed items (food). We were on the road at 11:21AM. What a difference good weather makes for a drive. Very pretty countryside in Mississippi between Vicksburg and Jackson, then up through Tupelo then into Tennessee. We stopped for the night at Green Acres RV Resort near the town of Savannah, TN. The drive covered 336 miles...

Aug 17, 2014 - Memphis, TN to Savanah, TN

A late start and a very sedate drive today, 165 miles towards Nashville. We stopped for a break at the Tenessee visitor centre, strategically sited next to Tina Turner's old infant school - like Tina, now in need of restoration. The brilliant staff in the centre gave us directions to a very scenic drive through farming country, to a place called Savannah. So far, this has been the closest we've seen to the English countryside we know and love. Small fields, woods, streams and ponds. Well kept livestock and everybody driving a pick-up truck....

Jul 16, 2014 - Moving Along

Our drive yesterday from W. Memphis to Savannah was both scenic and relaxing, good roads, beautiful trees and lots of lush farmland. After setting up and relaxing in the cool breeze we had happy hour outside as well as dinner, the weather turned absolutely perfect. This morning we woke up to 51 degrees; we toured the Shiloh National Military Park. There was a 40 minute film at the Visitors Center on the battle, then toured in the car a well defined battlefield. Stopped for lunch at a local catfish place as Savannah is the catfish capital,...

Oct 8, 2012 - Shiloh Battlefield and family information

I will talk about the Shiloh Battlefield in a couple of sentences but first my cousin, country-western singer Darryl Worley sang the song "Have You Forgotten" which was written and sang by him to remind us of 9/11. Of course he has a whole bunch of songs, just google his name and there he is. My cousins, Janet and Gary Taylor who live in Alanta, GA have done extensive research regarding our family history. They have come to several different paths while following my grandfather Taylor's genology, but traced back to the 1600s for my great...

Oct 7, 2012 - moved to Savannah, TN via Natchez Trace Parkway

WE enjoyed a delightful drive on part of the Natchez Trace. In 2007 we drove the bottom part of the Trace near Vicksburg. We arrived in Savannah, TN. Sandi's grandfather was born here in 1900. A lot of her family roots can be found here, see 10/8/2012

Mar 11, 2010 - Shiloh National Military Park

When we arrived at the RV park in Savannah, TN, we were asked why we had come to the area. We told them we were there to visit the Shiloh National Military Park. They immediately recommended that we go to Corinth, MS, first and then we’d understand the battlefield much better. So, that’s just what we did. At Corinth is the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. What a great facility we found. We were intrigued by the sidewalk as we approached the building. It was imbedded with bronzed replicas of Civil War Artifacts. The center houses a...

Sep 7, 2009 - Last day in Savannah

Had a pot luck breakfast with the other guests and residents here at the RV park. Very friendly people here. Met a (true southern)woman who was hilarious and so much fun. Clarene I think was her name. She writes a column for a MS newspaper. Kind of like Erma Bombeck, she says. She's great at telling stories. Beautiful too. Also our neighbors since we've been here are a couple from L.A., California. He retired about 4 years ago from truck driving. This is just one of their vacation stops. Our other neighbor who makes candy dropped by tonight...

Sep 6, 2009 - Pickwick Lake

Not much left to do here. Drove over to Pickwick today. Not what I expected. It's just a big, huge lake. I imagined it would be more 'tourist-y'. The RV neighbors are nice. We had some ham & beans our neighbors cooked up. They are from Dyersburg, TN. He's a good cook and he makes a great hot sauce. He bottles it and sells it in his hometown. He made some great Mexican hushpuppies but I wouldn't know since I can't eat them. Everyone else liked them. We are going to a pot luck breakfast tomorrow morning hosted by the RV park managers. One...

Sep 5, 2009 - Indian Mounds-Shiloh

Brought the dogs out to Shiloh again but this time to see the Indian Mounds. Some of the battle of Shiloh actually happened on and around these mounds. The Trail of Tears is around this area too. Approximately 6 miles upriver from Shiloh in Savannah, TN. We had plans to go to the Cherry Mansion last night to hear the Germantown, TN(Memphis)Orchestra play on the grounds but it stormed. Our RV park had a jamboree yesterday here on the grounds. Live bands and food. Had the BBQ by an award winning cook. It was pretty good. Very country around...
