No, it's a private campground just outside of Cullman. It has been owned and operated by the same owner for 30 years. It is very well maintained, and a full hook-up site was $23.00 including tax with a Good Sam discount.

Lucy pulled out of Cullman this morning at 9:30. This was an usually early start for Fred and the Girls. Lucy staying hooked up and no sewer dumps helped achieve this early departure.

We departed Cullman on state highways, purposely avoiding the Interstate. We had a nice leisurely drive through the Alabama countryside into the lake country around Guntersville.

Eventually, we had to rejoin the Interstate when we crossed into Tennessee near Chattanooga. We also crossed into Eastern time at this point, and lost an hour. We continued through Chattanooga and Knoxville, and into the Smokey Mountains.

Today's weather started out overcast, but eventually cleared and the sun came out. We had another 300+ mile day, and arrived at Pebble Mountain Campground in Chuckey, Tennessee in time to get set up before dark. We are right on the edge of the Cherokee National Forest and near the Big Smoky Mountains National Park. We plan to spend several days her exploring the area.

Here are some pictures from today's route.

Have a safe and wonderful trip. Hope to leave next month for 7-8 weeks, if my health issues can be controlled by then.

Glad to see you are on the road again. The great smokies are on our list, someday I hope. I think they represent some of the most beautiful country in the USA.

We stopped into Haydocy Airstream in Columbus, OH today to return an accessory and buy some more. Salesman Bruce Miller said they have two (2) FC 25 twins coming in July -- one pre-sold and one not. Someone, please buy the available one so I am not tempted. Not sure if they are front or rear bedroom but from what I have read there are pluses and minuses for both.

BTW, Brian, I just reeived a Sewer Solution and am looking forward to testing it out. Correct that -- no one looks forward to handling sewerage so lets say I am looking forward to not getting my hands dirty.

Lucy rested at the campground today while we headed out and toured the area. We started out by heading over to Chuckey, Tennessee, where we visited the Post Office as we had several orders of Moose Tags to get out. We looked around Chuckey. There wasn't a whole lot to see, but the surrounding countryside was beautiful.

We then made our way on back roads over to the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park. The Park includes the site of the cabin where the famous outdoorsman, US Congressman, an Alamo Defender was born in 1786. There is a reproduction of the Crockett Family's timber cabin on the approximate original site along the Notichucky River. When Davy Crockett was born, this area was considered to be part of North Carolina. It became part of Tennessee when Tennessee was admitted to the Union in 1796.

The Park has a very nice RV campground, and there was an antique tractor show while we were there today. We had a very nice visit.

From there we headed over to Greeneville, Tennessee. Greeneville is the seat of Greene County. It is the only Greeneville in the United States spelled this way as it was named in honor the Revolutionary War Hero, Nathaniel Greene. Greeneville was the Capital of the short-lived State of Franklin before Tennessee was admitted to the Union under that name.

Greenville, Tennessee is also the hometown of the 17th President of the United States, Andrew Johnson. President Johnson lived here both before and after the War Between the States. We toured Greeneville for a couple of hours. There are many historic and architecturally-significant buildings in Greenville. We took lots of pictures.

After a quick Wal-Mart stop, we made our way back to Lucy. We made it back well before dark, and got settled in for the night.

I just had to list this picture separately. It was taken of one of the historic commercial buildings on Main Street in Downtown Greeneville, Tennessee.

If you will look carefully, the faded sign at the top of the building identifies the former occupant of this building as the Doughty-Stevens Company. The company identified themselves as furniture dealers and undertakers. A rather strange, and somewhat amusing, combination.

We love finding these bizarre business combinations. Two years ago in a small town in rural Maine we came across a business that was a wrecker service and wedding chapel.

Thanks for the photos. I just love those small towns. Greenville looks very appealing. Exploring is a major part of the Airstream travel adventures. You never know what you might discover. Furniture and Funeral Parlor, or old tractor show, or other historic old theaters (which looks like more fun than Netflix).

The story about the State of Franklin is very interesting. That is one of those moments in history which I never learned in school.

I am very much enjoying your posts, Brian and am looking forward to more.
