Knoxville Tennessee, tonight after another good travel day.

Where are we today ?
      Cold last night but only down to 22f, got a good sleep so raring to go when the sun came up  and hit the road about 7:30 this morning.
Todays travel only 331 Miles
Nice sunrise and ready to go
       Interstate less then a mile away so hopped on and headed into the blinding sun for a while. Loving the rest areas have found a lot of them have free dump stations, don't need one but nice to see. And I stop at pretty well everyone to get out stretch and check tires etc...
dump station in the rest area
      This my road view most of the day.  Whipped through Birmingham AL. about 12 miles through Georgia.
           Then on  to Chattanooga TN. Moving down the road following I-75 through Knoxville TN. about another dozen miles to Heiskell TN.
       Pulled off here and fuelled up at the Pilot Station (Good Sam discount 3 cents a gallon) $1.90.9 then down the road for a mile to check in to this Park below. Another Good Sam discount with taxes  pull through $25.00 a night 30 amp and water. Don't need sewer as I have winterized our coach and right across from the washrooms.
nice site for a night.
     Got here about 3 pm Eastern time  = perfect. Checked in, set up had a nice walk about checked e mails sent Suzie my expenses for the day. No need to rush cause the weather is pretty bad for the next day or 2 back home, then should get somewhat better.
nice pool but not open too cold!
it is a nice park and pretty buys too
         Now to  heat up some of my rotisserie chicken and and a fresh salad, enjoying a nice tasty supper.
       Shortly after 6 Suzie called and we chatted for a while bringing each other up to date. And post the blog. Gonna watch the tv for a bit and hit the hay.
       Thanks for coming along and we would like to thank all of those wishing me safe travels and sending their prayers. Via comments, emails, google + and facebook.
       Tomorrow hope to get to Ohio for the night and watching the weather carefully, sneak home on Sunday, between the weather fronts. If not ???
       Down to 16f tonight here 1f at home gonna be cold there but warming up a bit come sunday.

  6. Take it easy up there when you hit the less than stellar weather.... A lot of us are watching you to make sure you get on home without any problems... I too have traveled with the motorhome winterized and getting over the the shower house every time you need to is a pain...

  7. Sounds like the weather is cooperating for you. It may be cold but there is no ice or snow on the highways. I hope it stays that way for you.

    1. I enjoy the travelling, just not so much on slippery roads, driving our house.

  9. So sad you have to drive back home alone. Be careful when you get into winter country.

  12. It struck me after scanning a couple of your posts thta you seemed to be heading NORTH, so I went back and read some I had missed. Sorry to hear home circumstances have cut your Southern sojourn short this season. Good Luck. Hope all works out.
