Monday, March 18, 2024 - Henry Horton State Park, Lewisburg, TN - 128.9 Miles, 5,904.5 Miles for the trip

I forgot to post a photo of my mouse eaten chair yesterday so here it is:

My Chair

Not a bad drive on I 40 to Henry Horton other than the potholes. They don't fix them, they just put up signs letting you know they are in the road. It isn't a recent problem; I noted the same signs in my journal 2 years ago. In any case, they are correct - there are lots of them. I arrived at Henry Horton around 12:30.

They are doing work on the main campground road & have a gravel detour to get into the camping area. I'm in site 31 (where I've been before), a water & electric site on asphalt. Has a picnic table & fire ring, needed a 2" drop on the tongue, level side to side, slight railroad noise, and close to the bathrooms. $33.89 per night. I didn't hook up the water line - it is suppose to go down to 25°F by morning; at 5:00 it is 47°F. The road through the campground loop is very curvy, in fact it is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between the road & the pull through sites. About a .7 mile loop.

Site 31

It is nice to have internet connections at the trailer. Verizon is fast at 69.26Mbps down & 15.05Mbps up. Unfortunately, I can't give you the data rates for AT&T. My phone shows 3 bars, but my Netgear AT&T cell modem died. It won't turn on. The battery is swollen, and it won't run with it in or out. It is probably more than the battery since the NetGear website says that it should run without one if it is connected to a stable USB supply. I have to be careful if I have to replace the entire modem - it is running a long retired truly unlimited plan (at least I have hit 80GB in a billing period without a slowdown) that is only $23.49 per month.

I finished Highfire on the drive to the campground, and am about 1/3 through my first real book in years - Steve Berry's The Omega Factor.

Dinner was an Evol Chicken Enchilada Bake.

Until Tomorrow -
