Maggie the bread looks delish.

Let us know how the half loaf version turns out as that would be of interest to us also. We had no problem finishing the last loaf with 4 people but when its just 2 of us the half loaf will be a better fit. Seems our body types are being a bit carb clingy these days.

I bought the 12 Qt with feet on Maggie's recommendation. It can handle anything from bread to chili for a crowd or leftovers.

Yes. 12", deep, with feet and the inverted lid, is a good, all-purpose size.

Mine is not the "deep", but it works fine, if that's all you have, just takes a bit more care to keep the top from burning. If to do over, would have got the deep.

If you do a mostly whole-grain loaf, Hittenstiehl, it isn't a bad thing, in moderation. We all have to watch our carbs as we get older , and choose our white flour items carefully and sparingly. At home, by myself, I slice a loaf up and freeze it, pulling out just what I want. The slices thaw and toast very quickly,

Drove the Foothills Parkway today....and, my first switchbacks. Doug would be proud. No scratches, dents, nor even near-misses.

Lots of motorcycles and small, very fast cars on 129, which apparently is the famed Tail of the Dragon that we drove once before....by accident...and where our picture is from. I somehow thought that was east of Chattanooga.

Took 2 1/2 hours to drive 70 miles from Townsend to Tsali NF campground west of Bryson City. No hookups, but decent showers, and $7.50/night with the Golden Age Passport. No phone signal but 2 bars of 4g sitting outside.

Not as pretty as the past, but nice nonetheless, and a good price.

A picture before we leave on Sat.

Maggie

I grew up in Knoxville and went to college in Maryville, so I am very familiar with 129. My old Porsche loved that road long before the motorcyclists discovered it. Spent many nights camping in the Joyce Kilmer area.

We have been to Joyce Kilmer.

A very special spot.

Well, Maggie, this time next week we'll be doing the Alumalina reunion! From following all the posts, think everyone is really anxious to get together again. I'm anxious to try out some of your famous DO treats, by the way. Oh, and I have a special dessert planned that will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF!

Wow! Good job, Channing! Thank you.

These were at the Cades Cove Campground at SMNP.

The motorhome on the left is the Airstream 26', and that is their campfire set-up.


Maggie

Yum, Barry.

I do know you can cook.

I have ridden the Dragon many times on motorcycles when it was "fun", but the reduced and enforced lower speeds make it a dull ride today. If I remember correctly, there were over 411 turns in the 11 miles.

There is a unique photo of a semi truck with trailer with the trailer wheels and truck on the correct side of the center stripe, but the body of the trailer was completely across the other lane. That tends to limit one's options when coming towards the truck.....

Glad to hear your Airstreaming skills are getting better all the time. We learn by doing.

All we really have control over in this life is our attitude and yours sure is getting better with time.

Enjoy the rally and old friends.

You're so sweet, switz. Thank you.

I'm trying. Every day is still adjustment, of many different kinds, and there is hardly a moment that I do not acutely feel Doug's absence.

I tell myself millions of people deal with death of loved ones, go on, and I must as well.

It will be good to be at the rally, surrounded by others. I am so looking forward to it.


Maggie

Have sent a photo of the current location to Channing to post....Tsali National Forest campground....in South Carolina, I believe.

Unremarkable but certainly functional. Plenty of hot water in the showers, and we are one of only a couple of people here.

Plenty of room for Lily to romp a bit without disturbing anyone.


Maggie
