The Bear Went Over The Mountain

A funny thing happened on the way to the Walmart.  We ended up on Pilot Mountain which is about 10 miles south of Mount Airy.  We had wanted to go, but the weather conditions haven’t been just right; that is, it has been too hazy which doesn’t lend itself to the best visibility from a mountain side.  But, we decided that even though the visibility wasn’t the best, we’d go anyway – who knows when, if ever, we’ll be back this way.  On a clear day you can see forever or, at least, to the Blue Ridge Mountains, but not yesterday, however, it was still beautiful and peaceful.  So, here, for your viewing pleasure, is the photo journal of our trip to the mountain with no commercial (or “commental”) breaks.


After we went over the mountain, we stopped at Walmart to pick up a few items and then returned home to spend the rest of the afternoon getting things ready to roll.  Before dinner time we took care of several items such as checking the air pressures, dumping tanks, and hitching up the truck.

Around six o’clock the third thunderstorm of the afternoon passed through; this time dropping hail an inch in diameter.  It didn’t do any damage but made one heck of a noise hitting the RV.  The katts went berserk.  Alex headed for the bed and crawled under the covers while Katie ran for dad.  I picked her up and held her tightly, she buried her head right under my arm and stayed there until the storm quit.  Thankfully it only lasted less than ten minutes and things returned to normal – peace in the valley once again.

Well, “that doed it!”  We have completed our touring of the Mount Airy, North Carolina area.  It is a beautiful part of the country and we’re glad we stopped by to say “Hi” to Andy and all the Mayberry gang. 

Now it’s onto Virginia for a visit with our daughter and her husband.  Mary is pregnant and do in September so we’ll be heading back to Virginia again next fall after our workamping stint in Michigan.

Hope You’ve Enjoyed Traveling With Us In North Carolina.

And May God Bless  - - - - - - - - - - - -
