It didn't start out like a travel day because when I talked with Pam at about 6:00 AM she was not feeling well. She was feeling a little puny on Wednesday evening and had a full blown fever when she went to bed so I was not surprised.
The great thing about being full-timers is that we have the option to change our plans most of the time. So we did and she went back to sleep. I read and sat out by the lake for a while, then decided to go for a walk around the campground/RV Park.
It has some great roads and trails and I went at a brisk pace. Before I even got a 100 yards I saw the turf farm next to us getting ready to cut some sections and load them on pallets.
A little later, about a 1/2 a mile away I went by one of the lakes that has one of the larger 'beaches'. This is never going to compete with the Florida beaches,
Further along the campground I saw some interesting 'cotton'. In this part of the country the giant cottonwood trees shed their 'cotton' during the spring and it was doing that now.
The other side of the campground (which is fairly large with 497 campsites) has plenty of great sites with good views.
When I got back to the Roadrunner, Pam was up and had eaten a little bit and decided she was up for driving to Tennessee. I took a shower, we finished packing up and were on our way by about 11:30 AM.
I drove about 2 1/2 hours and we stopped at a rest stop. Where we switched drivers.
We had a hold up near Cincinnati where a tractor trailer was turned over on the other side of the freeway so that delayed for awhile as traffic crawled through that area. Then as we progressed into Kentucky, the sky cleared and it was a beautiful evening and nice time to be driving.
By the time we got to Maynardville (451 miles and 9 1/2 hours later) we both were pretty whupped. We arrived just before it got dark and got our things out of the car and talked with Mike and Joan for a while before we went to bed.
That was our Thursday, first walking around the campground, then driving to Tennessee. It was a loong day! Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!
