Monday, April 9, 2018 - Cades Cove Campground, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, TN, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 6,982.6 Towing Miles For the Trip

Another cool night, getting down to 39°F, and only warming into the mid 40's during the day. The furnace is running off & on while set at 59F. A couple short bursts of very light rain overnight, and during the morning, and heavy clouds all day. I didn't do much of anything today other than a couple of walks around some of the campground loops. Not enough sun to put back what I used overnight - the solar panels are only producing a couple of amps. As of 1:00 I'm still down 15 amp hours. I checked the propane, and I'm still on the first tank, so I don't need to head to town for a refill.

Because of the cloudy day, I made my morning coffee on the stove, and had oatmeal with hot water rather than in the microwave. I do wish it was at least 10 degrees warmer. Of course I'm better off than the tent campers that are in some of the nearby sites. They are huddled around a campfire!

Dinner was a chicken pot pie.

Around noon on 2/10/18 I found a cell signal at the Sugarland visitor center, so I posted the last 2 day's pages.

Until Tomorrow -
