    Fairfield Glade

    June 11 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 68 °F

    Well we are back on the road, taking a trip to rest and relax after the stress and exhaustion that came in the past few months as we packed up and sold our home for the last 32+ years. We came to Fairfueld Glade, between Knixville and Nashville on Tuesday, with a stop for lunch at Luella's BBQ and dessert at Whits frozen Custard. It has rained some every day that we have been here but we have also even able to walk every day, on beautiful trails throughout this community. Found a geocache and a model train display. Today we went to Oxone Falls, a somewhat treacherous rocky hike down to the base of the 100+ft falls. We stopped 2/3of the way down, just felt that was far enough on slippery wet rocks. It was beautiful. We have had several days of rest and now onto some adventures!Read more

    Crossville, Tennessee - Crossville KOA

    June 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    What day is it? The story goes like this. We stopped for lunch at a Cracker Barrel restaurant. Since it was Thursday and turkey is always Cracker Barrel's Thursday special, so we ordered turkey. The waitress said the Friday special is fish. Oops! Another senior moment or just on retirement time?

    Anyway,we are steadily moving eastward toward home. Our current camping spot is in Crossville, Tennessee which is between the cities of Nashville and Knoxville, in Middle Tennessee, on the Cumberland Plateau. This geographic location provides for a mild year around climate which in turn makes for ideal weather for 12 golf courses. This makes Crossville the Golf Capital of Tennessee.

    We passed by Nashville today and what excitement. It was the middle of the afternoon and traffic was bumper to bumper. Rush hour must be even more exciting.

    We'll skip the history lesson regarding Crossville. Well, maybe we'll have a little lesson. As its name denotes, the town sprang up at a crossroads, then someone built a store at the crossroads, the Civil War took advantage of the crossroads, more roads and highways were built, and today there is a town of 12,000 people. The End!
