Sunday, April 24,Townsend KOA, Townsend, TN, Day 4 - 0 Miles, 6,934.28 Miles for the Trip

We are going to start north tomorrow, and according to my weather app, wetter & colder weather. I guess it is not a good idea to get used to 85°F days.

Some folks are pulling out today, while others will be leaving tomorrow. The campground is still crowded, although the site next to mine remained empty. I don't miss the folks that were there that left yesterday. Their dog barked all the time they were gone, and they left a bunch of outside lights that aimed at my windows on all night.

We did lots of reading & chatting, and planned our route out of Townsend to Hungry Mother to attempt to avoid Knoxville, Pigeon Forge & Sevierville. I finished Twenty Years Later by Charlie Donlea, and while I liked the book, there were two interesting mistakes. He determined that a sailer type must have been guilty because he/she used a bowline to tie the victim's hands behind their back (While sailors and many others, even theatre folks use bowlines, it is the wrong kind of knot to tie someone up with) and he seems to think that the Adirondacks in NY is a National Park.

I talked with my brother on Nantucket Island, and he has found a buyer for his house. He would like to retire to the Catskills in NY, and if the sale goes through, it will be the end of an era. I will miss the summer visits to the island, but it would be near impossible for him to live there on the amount of retirement income he will have available.

Dinner was a Butterball Turkey Burger & asparagus.

Until Tomorrow -
