Our time in Tennessee is always too short. While there we were able to see family and neighbors and friends. And we completed a project with Roadrunner Builders. Mike had been saving the back porch so we could work on it. He wanted some insulation in the walls and ceiling and a couple of windows trimmed out.
He had the insulation done and we got to do some of the rest. He insisted on leaving the painting for him and since we ran out of time, that was OK with us.
We worked in the middle of 'errands' we had to do at Wiegel's and Hammer's in Halls. We also drove over to Powell's and picked up some things at Lowe's. Our basic workday M-W was about 9:00 ish to 4:00 or 5:00 in the evening.
The next day we headed out of town and found a gem of a overnight stop in Buena Vista, VA. We're on our way to the Fairfax area to see out son and wife. We hate paying $40 plus for an overnight stop. And there were quite a few of those within 30 miles of where we wanted to stop for the night.
Even among those expensive places, there is no guarantee that we would get open access for our DirecTV. That would be frustrating. But we found a place in Buena Vista, VA. We checked out reviews for the Glen Maury City Park campground and they were pretty good. Nothing great. But we were looking for one night.
I called and asked and was assured we would be able to get an open site with satellite access. Sure enough, we arrived, paid our $19.48 (with Passport America) and parked in the open field. We had 30 amp service (which was fine since we did not used the A/C) and water. Perfect.
We will definitely keep this campground on our favorites list for next time.
It was a great time seeing Mike and Joan and all in Tennessee and getting to work on their place. Always too short, but fun to get some work done with the Roadrunner Builders. And we look forward to a few days seeing Adam and Melissa.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
