Thursday, April 19, 2018 - Townsend KOA, Townsend, TN, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 6,991.7 Towing Miles For the Trip

Back to cool, in the 50's today. I drove to the Smokemont Visitor Center in the park to pick up a US National Parks map for Anne. While they might have them at Greenbelt National Park, I've never been to their visitor center, so I have no idea what they have. It was 10°F cooler at the visitor center than here in Townsend. On the way back I watched a rescue drill at the Sinks waterfall. If it was me, I'd rather have done it yesterday when it was 85°F!

I guess I asked too often whether we were having a pot luck (this is not an organized rally), so they left the decision up to me. I'm now going around the campground letting people know there will be one at 5:00 Saturday. How did I get in charge?

After the trip to Smokemont, I decided to edit the PDF version of the NP US map to add links to the parks that have pages on my website. I may have to also add links to the trip journals that include some of the parks that I didn't put together a separate page. In any case, when it gets finished, I'll add it to the site.

Last night I went for S'Mores & got my picture taken.

Dinner was the annual visit to the Riverstone Restaurant next door to the campground. I love their chicken fried steak even though they use brown rather than white gravy. The smother it with onions, along with a baked potato & greens, an excellent dinner.

Until Tomorrow -
