Friday, April 13, 2018 - Cades Cove Campground, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, TN, Day 6 - 0 Miles, 6,982.6 Towing Miles For the Trip
Well into the 80's today. I didn't do much other than sit around and read, and make a couple laps around the campground. I did stop at the campground store for an ice cream cone.
Quite a few tent & car campers have moved in for the weekend. Those that arrived yesterday had an experience - strong overnight winds blew down some tents & easy ups. My next door neighbor lost the canvas to his easy up, but it was found by some of the grounds people & returned. The car (or truck) campers are interesting. No tent or trailer - they just park the car, then climb in at night. There was an interesting fellow next to me the other night. He pulled into a site, got out a gravity chair and sat for an hour or so, then tossed the chair back in the car & left.
We are still having lots of wind. So far most of the tents that didn't blow down last night are still up.
Dinner was a Bubba burger & a piece of corn on th cob. Corn on the cob is another food that is difficult to eat with a missing front tooth (I mentioned asparagus a number of posts back). As you nibble the cob, you leave a trail of unmunched kernels that you have to attack sideways to finish. Can't wait to get back to the dentist & my new front tooth (isn't there a song about that?)
Until Tomorrow -
