Maggie, I know you don't know us, but if you ever come through north Florida, and want a WAY out of the way place to plug in for a bit and just unwind, your welcome to come to our place. We're out in the sticks of N Fl, and I have a thirty amp drop in the yard... Or if you'd rather boondock, we have plenty of property where you'll never see another soul, only deer, quite a few turkeys, and the odd raccoon. Just an offer if you're down this way. You're in my prayers. Enjoy those grands...

That's very sweet of you, and thank you so much.

Won't be that far south this trip, but maybe another time.

cwf tells me he has the picture thing fixed, so I am expecting he is going to post it.

Headed toward west of Nashville for later today, a corps spot which might do for a night or two. Need to pick up a wayward prescription in the Nashville area.

Found propane and scrubbed the Interstate this am.

Wild.

Thanks, Channing.

We are settled into the prettiest little COE campground, on a small river that feeds into the Cumberland. Harpeth River Bridge is the name.

CampWhere said there were no facilities here, and no reservations, but they have water, electricity, a bathhouse, concrete pads, and a dump station.

No TV signal, but that's okay.

It is lovely. A loop, so all sites back up to water. We are going to stay here at least a couple of days, maybe thru the weekend.

Oh, and with the Golden Age Passport.....$6 a night. Can't beat that.

We will crochet, bike, walk, read, and repeat.


Maggie

Come join us!

I think we're going to stay thru the weekend, because why not? Lily will be very happy to not be moving for a few days.

There are a half dozen or so sites free right now, but it is a no-reservation campground.

And, there is TV with antennae....all the major channels. I had the antennae turned off.

Air Cruiser-that is an excellent suggestion for organizing information.

There is a free app called evernote that is great for storing this kind of info. You can access your info from multiple devices, and make lists, store photos, and it is searchable.

Harpeth River Bridge

There was the most gorgeous sunset here last night.

I took this photo with the IPad, cropped it a bit and saved.....it still posts upside down, but if you click on it it opens rightside up.

Going to be hot here today....but there's AC. Going to cool off after that.

Just paid for 3 more nights.

Piggy Bank, thanks for the info on the app; I haven't done apps yet, although I've thought about it. I guess it's time to start!

Maggie, we just love COE campgrounds! They are the first type we look for when traveling; I have a feeling this one will be on our list! There is one in West Virginia (off of I-77) which is supposed to be very nice, we haven't been to yet, the only drawback is -- no pets allowed! I've read that it is very difficult to get a site there.

Your and Lily's trip sounds wonderful so far, looking forward to seeing/hearing more of it. Have a fun and safe trip.

Deb

And, it's not the prettiest spot here.

There are a couple at the end that are rather isolated from the rest. Not only are they occupied, but here I am right across the road from the bathhouse.

When you have a wet bath the size of mine, you use public showers when they are available.

Was talking with the camp host this am who said this place is usually full, all the time. Most folks stay from Sunday to Sunday, and on Sunday mornings people are lined up to get spots coming open.

There are several sites, and a couple of tent spots, still open, but several rigs came in last night.

Great blue herons here (I think that's what they are), and a number of people with their own boats or pontoons docked at their site.

The entire campground is on what must be a little finger of land, as there is water on both sides.

A find. 'Twas meant to be.


Maggie

Thanks, Deb.

We have never been in a COE campground that wasn't good. Sites always seem to be paved, everything is neat and tidy.

Paved sites may not appeal to campers, but then.....we're not really camping, we're traveling in a tiny house on wheels.

Paved tracks so much less stuff inside. I can take off my shoes, but Lily....
