Driving the Snakey roads
Cars of beauty:
1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt
We decided to picnic Friday on Wautauga Lake over in Tennessee even if it was raining. We left the motor home and got 100 yards when my lover smiled and said, “I didn’t even fix the sandwiches, and you did not get the drinks. WE both cracked up laughing and returned and left better prepared. The weather was good!
Above is my soft spot next to old barns, Old houses, I want them all. Can you imagine the stories that this house has seen? .........
The trip is only about sixty miles, but 1-2 hours driving thru Blowing Rock and Boone, NC heading toward Elizabethton, TN. Most of the roads are the normal Eastern Mountain roads, crooked, but beautiful.
Anyone who knows my girl knows she has a deep affection for the AT. The Appalachian Trail goes thru Pond Mountain Natl preserve to and around Watauga lake. So our plan was to walk a little on the AT. I will say this one more time. While dry camping at Standing Indian CG in NC, in all my wisdom after traveling North America for many years, “Honey let’s sell everything, buy a boat and sail around the world!”
“NO,” she said, shocking me. “Let’s hike the Appalachian trail.” WHAT? WE made it about 1900 miles. She still loves it.
We had a good day.
