Today was another travel day.. The temperatures rapidly climbed back into the high eighties after that wonderful night spent with all the windows open in Fort Chiswell, Virginia, and temperatures in the sixties at night! Thanks to everyone who emailed to ask if we were ok from the Sevierville, TN storms which hit hard in Cades Cove. We just left the morning that they came through that day in the afternoon! Couldn't believe all the damage and the injuries from that storm that we saw on TV. And to think we were just there in the area where the worst of the storm hit. We had no idea it was coming the day we left.

For a brief moment, we entertained the idea of heading on to Cherry Hill RV Park in College Park, Maryland, near the Washington D.C. area, but the kids just didn't seem enthused about going to Washington, D.C. (!) Guess maybe you need to be a little older to appreciate that wonderful town! Exploring D.C. in two days would have been difficult, hot, and probably frustrating! Cherry Hill sounds like a wonderful spot to stay, though, if you are exploring the D.C. area. But we are back to our original plan of heading to Hershey and Gettysburg, PA by Sunday.
Falling Waters. It's a no frills, overnight park kind of stay. Thirty-three dollars, a bargain compared to many parks in the fifties and sixties range in this area. We spent hours researching the parks, checking out recommendations, and reading more than one reviewing site to finally settle on Falling Waters. The park is attached to a family compound, and there is a shady, nice section of the park on the level of the RV supply/parts store, then an upper level for bigger rigs needing sewer. No shade on the upper level, a gravel parking lot....But it's priced in our range, full hookups, 50 amp, and it's about 1.3 miles from I-81 in the town of Falling Waters. The park specializes in overnight, quick stays, you don't need to make a reservation, you just call ahead as you are traveling toward the town, and they put your name on a site for you. They say they can accommodate over 99% of the time for requests using this informal booking/reservation system. Time to kick back and rest...No rest for the weary, Eldo is researching where to stay for tomorrow.....Bye for now.....
