How time flies....

It seems like only yesterday that we arrived here in Tennessee. We spent about six weeks at Maple Hill Campground (waving HI to Betty and Klaas DeJong), then we moved to our property for another month with one more week to go.

All our utilities are in for our RV site, including a landline so we could have DSL for our Internet. Unfortunately, our Verizon coverage this far out of town is very iffy. The DSL is great and I can finally get a little more up to date.

So here are some highlights of our time here in TN.

We got a shed which gave us a spot to park the bikes, put our storage stuff and give Stu a workshop.

Stu bought a dump wagon to help him move things around on our property.

We bought a grill (on sale at Lowe's), loving it!

Stu has put a lot of work into fixing the shed up for him. Here are some before photos.

Here are some after photos.

Of course, we now separate, recycle and burn the rest of our trash. Got to love country living.

We've had great weather in the evenings, nice to sit outside and enjoy the sounds and smells.

Stu has enjoyed being able to work on our vehicles. Today he built ramps for Freddie the Freightliner. Of course they are too heavy to move without a handcart...but they worked perfectly.

Sadie loves being here and playing with her BFF, Keta. Sticks are to play with, chase, chew on...

See her smile?

Yup, we now look forward to returning this November...


  1. I bet those dogs are some happt critters what with all of that room to run around in.

    The grill is cool beans! And the shed is excellent and full of fun little tools and things.


  2. You're gonna get lots of envy of that shed. And lots of offers to come visit. :)

  3. That dump cart is pretty spiffy and Stu's shed is quite a place to be admired. You sure have nice "digs"
