Thursday, October 11, 2012

My last post was dated incorrectly.  It said Wednesday, October 12 and of course that can not be since the 12th is tomorrow – Friday.  As it turned out, the date should have been Wednesday the 3rd.  We had left Red Bay, and were spending the night in Fort Payne, AL. 2012-10-02 Red Bay to Fort Payne - Microsoft Streets & Trips 10102012 124541 PM.bmp

We left Fort Payne on the 4th, and drove to Etowah River Campground, a Passport America park, near Dahlonega, GA for 5 nights.  2012-10-04 fort payne to dahlonega - Microsoft Streets & Trips 10102012 123942 PM.bmp  This park should never be compared to a resort.  The entrance road, and interior roads are very narrow, dirt, and the Top of the World Highway was smooth compared to these.  The park did have good 50amp service, good water and sewer, but had too many barking dogs.  It was good that we did not spend much time there except to sleep – won’t go back.

Friday the 5th we drove the Jeep to Cumming, GA to visit Pete and Mitzi Hull, and after Margaritas at La Cazuela, we spent the night and continued our visit most of Saturday.

Sunday the 7th in the afternoon, we drove the Jeep to Young Harris, GA to visit Mike Berkman, one of the ushers at our wedding.  Then on Monday, we did our WalMart shopping for the rally.

Tuesday, the 9th,, we finally left Etowah River CG and drove US 19 up to Blairsville, GA to get ready for the Escapees Chapter 16 rally.  Wednesday, the 11th, we did some more shopping.  The rally registrations started out with 9 rigs, and then they started to cancel.  Three have dropped out due to health reasons, which means we have purchased too much food.  Oh well it will still be fun to visit friends.  We did have a good happy hour last night with Dick and Elaine Marshall.
