Saturday, April 16, Falls Creek Falls State Park, TN, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 6,781.4 Miles for the Trip

A fair amount of rain overnight, stopping well before my 8:30 walk around the campground. While a few RVs left, most have stayed. I see lots of site tickets with a Sunday departure date. I may back the trailer enough to use my site sewer connection to dump rather than head for the dump station.

After my walk I say outside for a bit, then made breakfast. A reasonably warm morning at 61°F, but little sun.

Around 2:00 I headed over to the Campground D bathroom for a shower. It is closer to my trailer than the one for our loop (A). A combined shower and drying room with no curtain between the areas. 3 hooks and a bench in the drying area, no shelf of any kind in the shower. A high volume showerhead & plenty of hot water. Biggest problem is typical - either runoff or spray soaks 95% of the drying are floor. Your pant legs are going to get wet when getting dressed. Overall, a C+.

Had a good time watching a guy with a triple axle 44' 5th wheel try to back into one of the sites. The combination of angles & trees made it impossible. Lots of tries. He even pulled into the site somewhat across from his & it didn't work. Finally backed down a pull through site to a lower section next to the baseball field, backed the trailer the entire length of the gravel road, and got back on the campground road. He left.

More sitting outside reading. Started the last book in Robert Westbrook's Howard Moon Deer Mystery Series - Walking Rain. Since I'm heading to Cades Cove tomorrow, I made sure all the books I ordered for the Kindle were actually downloaded to it. There is no internet connection (or FM radio) at Cades Cove so it will be XM Radio & downloaded Kindle books.

I moved inside around 4:00 when it got a bit cool without the sun to be sitting outside.

Dinner was an Amy's Chili Relleno Bowl.

Until the Next Internet Connection -
