Fished Lake Douglas today, not a bite one! Tomorrow = the rapids of Pigeon River. The dogs are fine, the wife is asleep from days of getting up at 5am to go fishing, and I have a bottle of scotch and a gorgeous place to sit for 5 days

All is well.
Jay did you get your coach cooled down? After reading about your problem I went out to shop and cut a piece of the fool insulation to fit my front window. weatherman said south east to be warmer than normal next couple weeks and thats where I'm headed.

Try the Chatooga float it's worth the drive over and much more exciting! Wildwater Chattooga Adventure Center, Chattooga River |Wildwater Rafting & Canopy Zipline Tours 29658

They filmed deliverance there! If your old enough to remember Deliverance with Burt Reynolds.

Ok here's my BIG story! (see photo)

Ok, one more.

we are sleeping in Tuscaloosa AL walmart, everything is fine. We get up at 6am (me) 7am (andrea)... close the single bedroom slide, crank and go.... INSTANTLY STOP ENGINE LIGHT... whooa that's not good... I'm on the interstate, I need fuel, it's one exit up... the light goes out, COMES BACK ON, goes out, COMES BACK ON... hit the truck lane, shut the engine off, get fuel, call Fleetwood...... check coolant GOOD, check air GOOD, check something else GOOD.... they give us two numbers to call locally.... we go by the first cat shop (by the way, no more STOP ENGINE LIGHT after restart).. the first shops says "caaaan't help ya" - off to the second cat shop..... opps that was our exit.. overshot by 9 miles for a u-turn. Second shop has us detach car and back in a bay. Computer says exhaust overtemp - but no reason....


they scratch their heads and send us on our way (at no charge) 2 hours later.....

Then Jay needs a camping world fix to buy a new ran mcnally GPS that he doesn't need (+ toilet paper)...

Then we hit knoxville at 5pm drive time (whoops)

Only to be met with a standstill! (and i mean standstill) traffic accident on I-40 1 mile from our exit...

to only go to walmart to buy fishing lic (for the fish we DIDN'T catch today) where the walmart employee screwed up both of them and had to void and redo at the cost of another 45 minutes... so that...

I now had to head down 17 miles of back road, two lane, twisty turny, 25mph, narrrrrrrrrow lanes to smokey bear camprground.. in the dark.. and one headlight went out..........

What was supposed to be 5.5 hours of driving ... turned into 10 hours of hmmmmm, stress

So we arrived in the dark, walked the dogs in the dark, left this morning for a 45 minute drive to meet a fishing guide before the sun came up to catch zero fish.. WHEW!

That's a fun story. My mom laughed her head off at me over this story!
