Side Trip To Maryville

What was I thinking?  Wash the rig on a travel day?  You’ve got to be kidding!!!  That just ain’t happenin’!!!  It was a short day, three and half hours and we arrived at Raccoon Valley just after noon.   After we got set up, the Golden Girls prepared us a nice home cooked travel day meal – Yum, yum.  Then we picked up a few items at Wally World before returning home for reclining, relaxing, and reading.  It felt “oh so good” that there was no way that I was about to give the rig a bath.

Today we’re off to Maryville to visit Gene and Judi and see their new digs.  After seven years of fulltiming, they put down roots in Maryville which is about thirty minutes due south of Knoxville.  They have family in the Nashville area (just a little over three hours away) and, as those of you who know them know, they love hiking the mountain trails which are right in their back yard.

Way back when I was managing a manufacturing plant in Marietta, Georgia, we passed through Maryville on our way to the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area.  We commented that it looked like a nice place to retire; right at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  It will be so nice to see them again; it’s been almost a year since we last got together with them at Demo’s Family Restaurant in Lebanon, Tennessee.  How time flies.

May God Bless  - - - - - - -
