After having spent a lazy evening Monday night, we got busy Tuesday morning trying to create a schedule for the Escapees’ Chapter 16 fall rally to be held in Mountain View RV Resort. We found several sightseeing opportunities and potential restaurants for dine-outs by talking to the campground managers and by stopping at the Visitor Center / Chamber of Commerce. We chose Steve’s Steak House for the dine-out, and will picnic at Brasstown Bald (the highest peak in GA) and tour a model railroad museum.
About 2pm we drove towards Murphy, NC to visit Tom and Ann Willson. (I worked with Tom for many years in the IRS). We talked of old times and what has happened since we retired. Then we went to a nice restaurant in Murphy called ShoeBooties. They have an interesting way of doing dinners for two for $24.95. You chose one of two appetizers (we chose the Vietnamese Spring Rolls, and Tom & Ann chose the Bruschetta – both being good); then you chose from 4 entree's (Tom & Ann chose the Chicken over linguini, while Marilyn and I chose the pork chops – again both were delicious); finally we were able to chose one dessert from two choices – we each chose the wonderful Chocolate Crème Brulee. What a great afternoon we had visiting and eating out with Tom and Ann.
We left Blairsville this morning and headed for Gaffney, SC. The drive took us across the top of GA on US 76 through Young Harris, Hiawassee, Clayton, and Clemson SC to I-85, and finally up to Gaffney, SC.Total miles for today = 175.
Tomorrow morning a few minutes after 8AM, the technician will come out for our motorhome to give it its all day service.
