Smoky Mountian Nat. Park-here I come

As of this afternoon spring break is underway. My plumbing is torn up, my pergo is only 80% down, and I have one pannel polished somewhat. Sounds like time to go camping! I am pulling out tomorrow and will be staying in the park, probally Cades Cove into next week. Time to do some photography and hiking and just sittin out under the trees. WOOOHOOO for me

Did you give them advance warning you were coming? Err, I meant, did you make reservations?

I like the way you think. Never let work in progress interfere with the possibility of a camping trip! I bet you'll have some awesome pics, redbuds and maybe dogwoods should be be peaking about then.

Of course, some of us will slave away in the salt mines next week.

Yeah, I admire your spirit. I am, unfortunately, at the mercy of the motivated slave (err-- husband), who wants to stay home and polish. It's a time thing- with a "showing" for Easter (to the family)...

Have fun!! Show us your photos!!

I've been a little hesitant to explore the area with trailer-in-tow since my first episode. We drove a 30' rv and ended up on the "Senic" route into Piegon Forge. At one switchback I could see the entire side of our toad Honda in the right side mirror - and it was on the other side of a dropoff.
