    Baileyton, Tennessee - Baileyton KOA

    June 16, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Still in Tennessee, in Baileyton, in the state's northeast corner. It's our last stop in the Volunteer State.

    Our drive here today wasn't a long one, but it took a longer time than anticipated. We got stuck on the interstate in a huge backup caused by a tractor trailer having run off the road and into a ravine which caused the trailer to break apart and spill its load. Our traffic woes continued with going through the city of Knoxville and playing Sunday combat driving with all the weekenders and vacationers.

    The good part of today's travels is the turning northward and starting at Mile 0 of Interstate 81. From here it's all the way home on I-81, getting off at the Mountain Top, PA exit. Only 571 miles to go. No chance of getting lost now.

    The campground du jour is another KOA in the small town of Baileyton, named after 2 founding Bailey brothers. Baileyton is just a stop off the interstate with 400 people and a few businesses, restaurants, and gas stations. The star of the show here is the campground. We stumbled upon a little gem. While small, it has all the needed amenities; even a golf driving range, a first for us for campground amenities. Fore!!!!

    Booker T Washington/Andrew Johnson

    November 12, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    I woke up super early, before any visitor centers were open, so I took myself out to breakfast in a tiny Town in Virginia. It's weird dining alone. The wait staff is always extra friendly and attentive. Good food, way cheaper than Cali. Then I tried to go to the Blue Ridge Parkway vc but it was closed for the season. It was the 3rd one I saw that was closed already. So then I went to Booker T Washington National Monument. It was pretty cool. I knew nothing about who he was. The park was the plantation where he was born and enslaved until he was 8 and finally freed. Then he taught himself to read, went to schools, taught, advised presidents. Cool guy. Then I drove through Roanoke VA. I figured it's a pretty big town I should drive/walk around downtown. I instead ran into a giant parade. I forgot it was veterans day. So all of the downtown area was closed off and there was no parking. Seemed like it was ending so I just got back on the freeway. Such a big parade though. Old cars and tiny boys dressed like their grandpas. Seemed like a pretty cool city. Andrew Johnson wasn't as cool a dude as Booker. He bought Alaska and didn't get removed from office (which he shouldn't​ have been). So that's good but he was president during much of the Indian wars, veteoed the Civil Rights Act, and didn't get much done. To be fair it was a super rough time to lead a still very divided country. Anyway, not my favorite place. From there I went through Gatlinburg​ TN and into the Great Smoky mountains. I settled into my campsite and made a fire (for the first time ever by myself!). Then I hung out and read my book in front of a nice toasty fire. Pretty sprinkles.

    More adventures tomorrow!
