Friday, April 15, 2016, Townsend KOA, Townsend, TN, Day 3 & The 2016 Eggscursion, 0 Miles, 6,835.9 Miles for the Trip

I went for coffee at the pavilion t 9:00AM & chatted with a bunch, then walked around the campground taking photos. After getting back to the trailer I read for a bit, then decided to pick up the supplies for the blueberry pies. I checked on the amount of blueberries I needed for two pies (60 oz) and realized that although IGA had some frozen ones, not enough. So, I headed to the nearest large grocery store.

NEVER, let me say (well, type) again, NEVER drive through Pigeon Forge on a nice spring Saturday! While getting to the Kroger's wasn't too bad, getting back was slow. It took 20 minutes to go half a mile. I finally turned off the main street & drove through a bunch of narrow backroads when I realized that if I stayed where I was I would have still had a mile and one half at less than 1 MPG.

When i got back I made one of the blueberry pies - I'll make the other tomorrow. I cooked it outside in the toaster oven because it was already 80°F in the trailer.

After cooking the pie I headed back to the pavilion for a thank you affair for Tom, the man in charge of the previous 8 Eggscursion rallies. Many more rally photos were added at the Eggscursion page.

Dinner was left over fried chicken & the rest of the potato salad. The potato salad was great, the chicken OK - a bit too salty for me (of course I'm one that never puts salt on anything except eggs so it was probably just right for most.

Until next time -
