Come Along For The Ride

Hungry Mother State Park 2

We started the day with a beautiful quiche Sandra brought Campground host, Roy Stanley, came around to say good morning as he made his rounds. Roy and his wife, Elizabeth, do a great job. In fact I would later tell him they are the best! We have been to a lot of campgrounds and have…

Drive From Nashville to Hungry Mother State Park

Thursday, March 25, 2021 It was a grueling drive from Nashville on I40 and 81 to Hungry Mother State Park in Virginia. Traffic was heavy, and the rain was coming down so hard, I never took my windshield wipers off high speed all day. Everyone likes to pull right in front of you after they…

Nashville

Wednesday, March 24, 2021 We took the kayaks off the truck and drove into Nashville, thinking we might have to go into a parking garage. Of course we found an outdoor lot. We walked down the block to the Country Music Hall of Fame, where people were waiting in line to get in. Three floors…

Natchez Trace From Meriwether Lewis to Nashville

Tuesday, March 23, 2021 We left Fall Hollow Campground and followed the trace north. It was now rolling hills and a curved road. We stopped at a tobacco farm not far from where President James Polk grew up, then a beautiful series of waterfalls.  There was an easy hike up to a bluff overlooking the…

The Oliver Travel Trailer Showroom in Hohenwald, Tennessee

We went to Oliver Travel Trailers in Hohenwald, Tennessee, just up the road from the campground. We had seen one at our last campground and liked it. After watching a video online, we decided to take a look. We missed the factory tour, which takes three hours, and all the sales people were busy, so…

Natchez Trace From Tishomingo State Park to Hohenwald, Tennessee

Monday, March 22, 2021 We pulled out of Tishomingo State Park and headed north on the Trace. We were headed for Meriwether Lewis Campground, but it was closed for repairs. We didn’t have far to go, so we stopped at various sites, the first being a walk to the top of a hill. You may…

Visit My Cousin in Somerville, Alabama

Sunday, March 21, 2021 It was a 1.5 hour drive to Somerville, Alabama to visit my cousin. It was noon when we got there. Standing in the doorway, talking, their beagle got out. Although she is fairly old, she likes to travel. I think there is a dog down the street that she would like…

Hike Tishomingo State Park

Saturday, March 20,2021 Nice 3-mile hike through the park. Our northeast travels along the Natchez Trace has been flat, sandy with many creeks, swamps and and bogs. Of course there has been a lot of rain in this area. Many trees are down, and the crews have been working very hard to clear the road.…

Natchez Trace From Jeff Busby to Tishomingo State Park

We first drove south on the Trace to French Camp. “Louis LeFleur first traded with the Choctaw Indians at a bluff now part of Jackson, Mississippi. About 1812, he established his stand 900 feet to the northeast on the Natchez Trace. Because of the storekeeper’s nationality the area was often called “French Camp”, a name…

Drive Natchez Trace to Jeff Busby Campground

Thursday, March 18, 2021 It was 10:00 before we got onto the Natchez Trace. We said our goodbyes to Bev and Willow, exchanged contact information and gave her a big hug. I hope we cross paths again.  We left a lot undone in Natchez, but maybe that just leaves more to do when we return.…

St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 Martha suggested we go to St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge. She knows I love these places. We invited Bev and Willow to join us. It’s about a half hour from town. By the time we pulled into the park office, I realized I had been here before. It was flooded…

Natchez, Mississippi

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 We went to the Natchez Visitor’s Center and booked a tour. Covid protocol prevents tours in closed vehicles, so we took a tour in what looked like an extended golf cart. Sally was our guide, and she was a character. Three ladies joined us for the hour 15 minute tour.  Fairly…

Drive from Meaher State Park to Natchez

Monday, March 15, 2021 As we hooked up for a 5-hour drive to Natchez, I couldn’t help but compliment our neighbor with the American Flag on the front of his RV, giving him the thumbs up. Martha went over to talk to him, and he had some good recommendations for Natchez. Johnny Hay was his…

Fort Pickens National Park

Sunday, March 14, 2021 Willy, one of the camp hosts at Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park, stopped to tell us where to stop on our travels to Mobile Bay. This park and campground is great. It is unique in several way, one being they have great volunteer support. They also have great staff and…

Kayak Rocky Bayou and Rock Creek

Saturday, March 13, 2021, We put the kayaks on Rocky Bayou in the middle of the campground, our mission to find Rock Creek and paddle up it. Paddling along the shore gave us a new perspective of this beautiful area. The near side of the Bayou is Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park that sits…

Looking for Rock Creek

Friday, March 12, 2021 Interested in floating Rock Creek in Eglin Air Force Base, we drove to the base and headed up a rutted, sand road. At first the surrounding land was dry, brushy land with a few trees. I thought I was in Africa, and expected to see a lion around the next turn.…

Florida 30-A

Driving south, we crossed the Mid-Bay Bridge to drive highway 30A along the Florida panhandle coast. Martha had heard about a happening food truck place in Seaside called WaterColor. Rt.98 is the main highway traveling east-west on the panhandle, and it is a busy road. 30-A is the seaside road. I was amazed at the…

Kayaking Turkey Creek

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 Martha studied kayaking possibilities, and I had bought permits for Eglin Air Force Base, on which there are four streams. However, all were closed except Turkey Creek. The nice ladies handling permits said there must be something going on. We made sandwiches and headed to Hippie Hole. It’s a fairly long…

Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 Sandra and Ruff have headed back home now. We enjoyed our time together, and now they are veteran campers. I think they are hooked!  We went on a 3-mile hike on the Sand Pine Trail in Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park to check things out. It’s a pretty walk along…

Errands

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 Our travel companions for the last three weeks are headed home today. We spend a nice morning together, talking about how fast it all goes, what we liked best, what to change and what places we would revisit. Too soon it was time for them to head out, and we said…
