Week-end Wrap-up

On Saturday evening we spent some time at Boo-at-the-Zoo, trick-or-treating with the Jrs. …

Taking advantage of the beautiful week-end weather, we sneaked in some gardening.  We trimmed and pruned, moved some things around,  and  the 2016 gardens are officially put away for the year.  Lessons have been learned, notes have been noted, and like anyone who gardens, we’re full of plans for next year.

We’ve been to the Smokies dozens of times, and have always wanted to camp inside the Park, but the idea of no electricity or water leaves me cold and thirsty…get it?  Haha.  We bought a generator to keep me in style, but they only allow generators from 8am to 8pm, so we’ve been doing a number of experiments to check our battery usage.  Casey is obsessed.  I’ve politely listened and nodded as he explained the amperages and voltages, using hydrometers and just how much the furnace draws when it kicks on and on…and on…

I am excited about the trip, though.  We’ll be staying in Smokemont Campground, something different for us.  We’ve stayed on the Cherokee, NC  side of the Park before, but more often we are on the Peaceful Side in Townsend, TN.  Cades Cove Campground was full, so we welcomed the change.  Look out Bears!   Stand back, Elk!  So far, the weather looks like it will be great too…

The week ahead is full of babysitting, meeting up with friends, and getting ready to go.

Peace, Out.
