Narrow bridges and a rainy day greeted us as we pulled into Tennessee!
After a long day of travel we needed an EASY quick supper, so Potato Stick Salad was the perfect fit! Click on the link to read the recipe from the 4 little Ferguson's blog.
The RV park we stayed at had the neatest commons area. The fire circle with twinkle lights, swings, corn hole and hillbilly golf. We played each night we were there and had so much fun!
We got to do a class and hang out with some travel friends we met along the way. God is so good to bring us faithful friends and believers in Him to hang with wherever we go.
We loved their church, had a fun oil class, then went out to dinner! :)

We headed towards Chapel Hill, TN to see if we could fit in Henry Horton State Park. We don't get to stay in State Parks very often because of our rig size, but this one we JUUUUST barely squeezed into with much manuvering by Dale. This is why HE is the driver, not me! SCARY STUFF!
It is funny, we live full time in our RV and normal life usually prevails, but being in the forest like this? We started acting like we were weekend campers again. Cooking over the fire every meal, hanging out in the hammocks, fishing and swimming all afternoon.
Dale made us the most simple, easy breakfast. Bacon cooked on the cast iron skillet over the fire, fresh sliced avocados in soft warm grilled tortillas. Mmm mm, breakfast of champions!
We also tried zoodles and squash noodles sauteed in butter with golden shitake mushrooms. Ohmyword!
We just kicked back in the hammocks and read and talked. Ahh, it was the life for sure!
We have a budding team in Chapel Hill, so we planned to meet them and offer a business training for the evening. We had such a nice time!! They are WONDERFUL!
One of our builders and new friends, Karen, offered to let the kids ride her horse at her home the next morning. Knowing what a horse FANATIC Avery is, we quickly said yes.
They had a BALL and she taught them so much in the short time we were there! What a blessing!
It was such a stunning property!
Back at the RV park, we took off in the forest and discovered an abandoned farmstead. Holy creepy! And how sad! I always wonder the stories behind these places and why they were left empty without a new family to fill them with love and laughter.
The old house still had furniture in it, and a beautiful summer kitchen or something behind it.
I went up the front steps to check out the furnishings and heard an air leak. It was almost like an air pump with it's rthymic and repeatative - shhhh, ch, shhhh, ch, shhhhh. |
I was showing Ty the cool old black leather chair when all of a sudden a CRASH BANG BOOM noise came from the gaping down ceiling exposing the attic and something rushed towards my head.
I turned tail and ran so fast, screaming for Ty to follow me.....
Avery took one look at me and screamed along with me, even though she was far down the drive already and ran fast ahead. I am still screaming and running while looking over my shoulder at Tylan.
That kid! He was slowly making his way down the grassy drive, not even worried about the giant monster trying to get us.
Where was Dale you ask?
Oh, laughing his head off at the barn.
We had one heck of a time in Tennessee and cannot wait to come back again! Time to head to Alabama for more classes, so we are off!
