I left the CITY OF CHATTAHOOCHEE RV CAMPGROUND last Sunday (April 1st) and proceeded my very SLOW journey North. I spent 9 nights there but they only charged me the one week rate of $98.55. I was pleased. This is a really nice Park and if you’re ever in the Area I would strongly recommended it. Lots of sites and nice and quiet. Fit my criteria for sure.
Can’t say that I had a relaxing week there though due to the extreme heat and humidity; the SKEETERS; and of course ending it off with a dead bike battery.
Bennie chillin’ one night while I’m on the computer – tried to get the pic with his eyes closed but as soon as he hears the camera turning on it’s too late.
It took me three days and 444 miles to reach my destination of 370 !! Yup, That’s the way I drive. And Man Oh Man is it HOT. One night I had to resort to turning on the generator so I could run the A/C. I know I’m not very far North yet (everything up to this point has been driving Eastward) but still it’s only the beginning of April yet temps are in the High 80’s to low 90’s.
One of Bennie’s many spots while I drive…
Getting back on the road means I had to get my trusty GPS out and set the co-ordinates !! This day I had TWO going as I had planned a stop at a HD before my final destination for that day. Changed my mind on that though.
Getting back on the road also means MEGA traffic. Driving through Atlanta (even though I took the By-Pass route) was a little hairy at times.
And ever since an 18 Wheelie near took the front off my rig the day of the 'INCIDENT' I am very leery of them when I see them pull up on my left side.
Bennie got his bed all scrunched up – just the way he likes it…
Last night ‘something’ got at my ankles ! I now have several bites on both and they itch like crazy. It’s not Skeeters this time ‘cause there was nothing flying around inside the rig. WHAT IS BITING ME NOW ??? I know I’m delicious BUT !!!!
Today I did stop at the HD Dealer in Dalton, GA and I immediately saw this Trike. LOVE those trikes ! Then this guy comes out with his dog just laying on his shoulder.
In this pic the little pooch just wanted to jump off and go play with Bennie.
And the guy rides with the pooch just resting on his lap or on a piece of carpet he has laying over the tank.
Sooo shiny !! Here’s your fix Byron !
I have been in touch with Annette from the HD Forums whom I met LAST YEAR while they were vacationing in Arizona.
She lives in this area and we had arranged to meet so she could lead me to exactly where this Campground is. Good thing ‘cause I doubt that I would have ever found it !! Too many ‘turn here’ and ‘turn there’ on roads that have at least a dozen different names – NONE of which matched up with my google directions ! And while it’s ‘doable’ in a big rig – it was slow and tight going on some of these roads. THANKS ANNETTE !!
I’m in a campground in the beautiful Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee.
After I got myself into the site, visited with Annette for awhile and then rested – well I had to pull the rig out on the road in order to get the bike out. I was sure hoping nobody was going to drive by ‘cause as you can see I was completely blocking the road.
It appears I’m going to be riding “THE DRAGON”. Now the question is ----- Will I slay the Dragon? or Will the Dragon slay me ?? More about that next time.
