Floating Mill Recreation Area at Center Hill Lake, TN

  On Sept. 7th we drove about 200 miles west from Asheville, NC to Center Hill Lake in TN.  Our good friends Don & Jeni Wilson are workcampers at Floating Mill Recreation Area Campground. 
Since it is later in the season and the volunteers are no longer working here we were able to stay on the site next to them with full hookups.  (the rest of the campsites have water and power only).

We left our friends and TN today.  We are looking forward to Nov. when we will again see Don & Jeni when they meet us at Bentsen Palm Village Resort in Mission, TX, where we will all be workcampers together.

The Great Smoky Mountains & Waynesville, NC

  On Sunday we drove to Asheboro, NC to meet Chris, Michaleann & Gwennie at the the NC Zoo.
We had a great day.  The zoo is large (5 miles)  and very clean with large areas for the animals.


 On Wednesday we drove about 168 miles west of Salisbury to Waynesville, NC and settled ourselves in at Trails End RV Park.  It's a Passport America Park so we got a good price.  We will stay here 3 nights.  (Leaving on Sat.) 



  This is a very quite park, on a back road with little traffic.  Everyone is friendly (more of that southern hospitality).   However, the best thing about this park is that it is close to Maggie Valley where Scotty's sister Lynne and her husband Dan live in the summer.

Last night we got a pizza and drove into the Great Smoky Mt National Park to Cataloochee and watched these elk.
