Thanks, Loretta....I will be logged into work 8:30 Monday morning from our campsite in Kentucky, then also in West Virginia.
The traffic was horrible, but at last we made it safe and sound to our campground, 'Up The Creek' near Pigeon Forge, TN. We got our power and water hooked up and had a quick dinner at about 11:00 p.m., took a quick walk around the campground, then promptly crashed for the night! OMG, the bed never felt so good! We have an awesome mattress and the coziest bedding. I think we both slept like rocks!
The next morning we were rewarded with this stunning view from our front windshield:
Saturday morning we put our TN sticker on our map!
Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant They have a large store with all their apple products from their orchard, plus it looked like they had two restaurants. We went to the one which looked more quaint. It was like an old farmhouse with a large front porch and there was a wonderful creek across the street.
Our next destination was Cade's Cove within The Great Smoky Mountains National Park but it did take a while to maneuver through Pigeon Forge and all of it's touristy attractions.
You know, all of the attractions like the one above, lol! We thought we were back on I-Drive in Orlando!
Once you get past all of the touristy stuff, you can see the natural beauty of the TN landscape. We went to Cade's Cove/Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
|I just posted this one because Dave thought it was so funny!|

Our feet were getting sore from all the walking so after one quick air hockey game, we headed back to the car and back to our cozy RV. We had another great night's sleep and woke up refreshed ready for another day of driving. We got up in time to get ready and also log on to our church's live streaming 10:45 service (The Xchange) as we were ready to pull out of the campground.
We hit the road heading towards our next destination, Natural Bridge State Resort Park in Slade, KY.
Again, we hit very nasty almost stand still traffic several times, but as I am writing this right now, we are about 1.5 hours away.
We will be working remotely this week so will only get out to see things around 5:00 (so glad of the time change and more daylight!)
Signing off for now...will post more photos tonight or tomorrow from our new campsite.
Feeling very blessed to be living our dreams!
Misi and Dave
