Were Half Way There

100_4270Up Early and an early start to the travel day, 7:15AM. Lee's Country Campground, in White Springs was a treat. Clean, clean bathhouse, new facilities, W&E with 2 dump stations for 38 sites and only $13 PA rate.   

Fueled up just across the GA line at Flying J, diesel $4.27 a gallon. WOW, can't believe we consider that a deal today. Just passed 2 Momma deer and their fawns, in south GA, travelin' north on US 129. No more big blue roads for today, I think. US 129 north of Alapaha, GA, home of 'Hogzilla' and Georgia Giant Bream. US 129 more wildlife, had to slow down to allow a family of 4 Otters cross the highway. Stopped for lunch at "Popeyes", Linda says she's gonna start cluckin'. Temps have been risin' all day but I wouldn't expect anything else for GA in August, in the upper 90's. Athens, GA 3:50PM, ran into a rain storm and the temp dropped from 97 to 73 degrees. Now that's what we've been lookin' for, cooler weather.


Mountains are comin' into view

Cruised on up to our place in Bryson City, NC and dropped off some stuff I need to finish some work, we'll stop on our way back. While we were there we took the opportunity to shower, then off we went for some more 'White Line Fever'. Crossed over the mountains through the Great Smoky National Park and hooked up with Interstate 81 north, "Oh No". Stopped for the night in Bristol, TN at 11PM, almost 16 hours of travel, minus food and fuel stops, is still a long day but we've got a deadline to meet.

Oh yeah, temp is 65 degrees so goodnight for now.

See ya down the road as we're Dancin' on the Wind
