Leaving Home

Well, we left home yesterday!  Our housesitter Mary arrived mid-afternoon on Friday and we spent a few hours going over house systems and some paperwork.  Later that evening we hosted a smallish spaghetti dinner gathering to introduce Mary to our good neighborhood friends (including Lynda's parents, Chip and Carolyn) and spend some time together before we left on our Great RV Escape.  I am SO pleased to have found Mary - I'm sure she will take wonderful care of the house and cats!

We drove Mary around the local area on Saturday, showing her some shopping areas and the general lay of the land.  Then, we loaded up the scooter and left town around 2:30 PM.  What a great feeling to have everything coming together after all our hard work and planning.  Very cool!

Our first stop is just an hour from home: the Smoky Mountains foothill town of Townsend.  This is a beautiful area! We will spend a total of 4 nights here to "burn in" the RV systems and see what, if anything, we forgot to pack. Carolyn, Chip, Judi and Gary are coming over later today to have an early dinner with us and just hang out for a while. 

The weather is cool but gorgeous and life is good!
