Tennessee Revisited

In my ongoing effort to add photos to old blogs from a time when we had no internet connection on vacation, here are three blogs from February 2011. Our itinerary took us to Oak Ridge, Cumberland Gap National Historic Park, Madisonville and Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Chickamauga Battlefield in Georgia. Our days were full and we had an exceptionally good time. It's fun to re-live the trip. Enjoy.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers. Enjoy your day off.


Bob was feeling much better today and spent half a day at the office.

I hung with the cats and rested. The temperature didn't get much over 60 degrees today. I kept being cold so I got up and looked at our indoor thermometer: 60 degrees INSIDE. Okay, time to turn on the furnace. Ahhhh...nice and toasty. I also got a second blanket out to keep me warm in the recliner. It's pretty good because the blanket drapes down off the end of the footrest right over the heat register. The warm air comes up under the blanket. Bowie has been camped out on the recliner with me day and night. Guess where? On the footrest where the warm air is blowing. Cats know a good thing when they find it.


Four more kitty pics. (I gotta get out more. LOL. Need new subject material. Be patient, Susan, the doctor said after Tuesday.)

Bowie's famous pose.
What? Dis blanket's not fur me?
Hey! Don't furget about me.

    1. Yes, Master Po. I would like to listen for the grasshoppers at my feet; however, they do not come into my dwelling and I cannot yet go out to greet them. LOL.

    1. So much to do there! We grew up on the West Coast, so all of this was new to us. Our best recommendations are Chattanooga(spend three or four days), Oak Ridge to see the museum about The Manhattan Project, and of course Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

  4. Wow, your cats are beautiful. I am sure they are like ours, when someone is ill or recovering, they are always very much into snuggling. Glad you are taking it easy and healing up.

    1. Thank you. I figured this is a good time to do it...when I'm still recuperating. ('Cuz once I get better, look out, world, I'll be out exploring again!)

  6. Hope you are feeling better. Steve and I are packed and ready to go in the morning. I'm excited about going to Hell. Looks like a cool place. Not sure which way we'll go to Fernley. Any suggestions? We will be staying at Sparks Marina which means we will have a drive to work. Oh well it will go by fast. Going to Florida afterwards. We sure have enjoyed our time here in Oregon. Beautiful place!

    1. Well, I have never driven roads in those parts in an RV, so I don't know grades and road widths for what I'm about to recommend. Maybe someone else can advise on on those.

      I would take U.S. 26 west through John Day Fossil Beds, then south on U.S. 97 (with a short side trip north on U.S. 97 to Smith Rocks State Park in Terrebonne, Oregon), at Klamath Falls, go east toward Alturas, CA, then south on US 395 through northeastern California. (Have you already driven down U.S. 97 through Bend?)

      Of course with California gas prices and limited availability of gas, you may want to take a route through Idaho and Nevada. (Although I've heard California is releasing their "winter" gas early, so availability may not be an issue at this point.)

    2. P.S. You will need Florida to thaw out after two months in Sparks/Fernley, NV!
