Rivet Possible Alternative

Hi Rodney,

What have you decided and where are you now?

The coldest it has been here in Little Rock is 32.1-yesterday morning at 7:07am. It is 41.0 right now. It has been, and still is, foggy and rainy, but no freezing.

Ill suggest it again in case the weather interferes with the more northern part of your route. There is good eagle watching at DeGray Lake Resort State Park in southwest Arkansas.

GPS Coordinates:
N 34 14' 50"
W 93 8' 45"

There are 113 30amp with water sites, 37 of which are on the water.

Ok Rodney, make a run for it. It's 37 here in Chandler, snow has stopped. Supposed to have sun (whatever that is) tomorrow and warm into the 50's by Friday.

This is why I bolted from the factory on Firday evening and headed east.
Good luck getting into JC on SUnday.....

Good luck, Rodney.

By the way, be sure to secure your hatches - the road from Chattanooga to Birmingham is about as bumpy as you can find it. (Actually it is from Ft Payne to Birm, as I recall from our last trip).

Bon voyage.

Pat

There is a state highway that parallels the super-highway, a bit slower but a smoother ride. I have not been on it but my in-laws did and said it was a nice drive. I would say that the trip from Chatt to B'ham is about as rough as you can get for that length of time. Avoid it if possible and use the truck alternate route around B'ham.

Rodney,

Roads are pretty clear here in St. Louis. I can offer you a courtesy park if you are staying overnight in town.

Sky,
I took your advice and went straight through Louisville headed to Jackson Center. I got there at 6:50 p.m. CST, 7:50 EST. I started seeing snow on the side of roads in the middle of KY. and a little further saw vehicles off the side of the roads in the median and one just missed an aluminum light pole before hitting a rock bluff. It got rather messy in Ohio and when I pulled into the service center that evening there was at least 6" of snow on the ground, 12" in some areas. This is the reason I will only drive a 4X4 as my primary vehicle and I'm glad it did it's part. It was snowing when I went to bed that night and was still snowing a little when I woke up the next morning.

Take the State Highway! We visited Falls Creek Falls State park just west of Chattanooga and came down 72 I believe. Super smooth, not many traffic lights and NO PARTS FALLING OFF THE TRAILER DUE TO I-59!

Visit Falls creek Falls if you have the chance...

Good idea, HiHo -

Rodney, if you do that, then stay on 72 to Scottsboro and go to Unclaimed Baggage. You can camp at Goosepond Colony (on Guntersville Lake).

My family's from there.

Pat

Wish I could road-trip to find him.

Any excuse, eh?
