rv repairs

Hello, Tennessee!

We left South Carolina Friday afternoon and stopped in Georgia for the night. I wasn’t feeling very well, but I managed. Saturday morning we left Madison, Georgia and headed for Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was rough. Really rough. They say that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger… and, quite frankly, I wasn’t sure which way it was going to go. Thankfully, I survived. And, praise God, I woke up Sunday morning feeling the best I had in weeks. I have a ways to go, but I am definitely headed in the right direction!  Hooray!!!

Somewhere between Atlanta and Chattanooga we blew out a trailer tire.  Amazingly enough, this was only the second time we’ve been broken down alongside the road. Poor Nick had a heck of a time changing the tire (Note: be sure you have the right jack for changing a travel trailer tire. Yeah.). But, he got us back on the road rather quickly and we were off again.

We are staying at Raccoon Mountain just outside of Chattanooga. Tennessee is beautiful and we are loving it. We are eagerly awaiting the leaves changing colors. What an amazing place to enjoy the beauty of autumn!

Boondocking and Day Three

I’m sick and feeling very miserable, so this update will be brief. I am trying to take it in stride, but it was a rough day of traveling… especially over very bumpy roads.

Last night we “boondocked” for the first time. It wasn’t too bad. We parked at a rest area just outside Kansas City, MO. It all went well,  other than someone trying to steal our sewer hose… I really don’t know what to say about that except, “Eww!”


Today we drove from just outside Kansas City to Mitchell,  SD. We had to make a long stop in Iowa for some repairs, but my handy husband got us back on the road.

Tonight we are staying at Mitchell KOA. Once again, we’ve had a great rv park experience. Friendly staff, clean facilities,  pleasant scenery (particularly if you like cows).
