Townsend, Tennessee

Our stay in Townsend has been very nice - we've used these past few days to relax and catch our breath and verify that all systems are "go".  Chip and Carolyn visited this evening for an early dinner and to pick up my Mazda Tribute... from this point on, we do not have a car - just the Trek and the scooter.  From time to time during our Great RV Escape, we'll rent a car if needed.

Finally, Lynda rode on the back of the Tank and she did great!  We buzzed around Townsend and then scootered over to the Cades Cove riding stable (which is actually located in Townsend).  We took a horse back ride up to nearby waterfalls and enjoyed the beautiful countryside. 

We also took a drive along the scenic Foothills Parkway, and Barley and Sydney came with us.  Truly, East Tennessee is a beautiful area and she is at her absolute finest in the spring! 

We've been staying at the Mountaineer campground which is very nice... fairly small but with good amenities and very helpful owners. Highly recommended!

Except for a little trouble with the RV awning, which was easily sorted out, the Trek and her systems are working great and we are ready to hit the road tomorrow!  First major stop will be Houston, Texas to spend some time with family and friends.
