Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, TN.

Tuesday morning we left Memphis, Tn. and headed east along I-40 to the home of the Grand Ole Opry. We traveled north on I-65 to Millersville, Tn. and Nashville Country RV Park. A very nice and accommodating park.

On Tuesday night we were fortunate enough that the Grand Ole Opry was performing that night so we purchased tickets and took the shuttle bus in to see the show. They were honoring Bill Monroe and all the performers were Bluegrass Musicians. It was a very good show and lasted for just over 2 hours.

On Wednesday we went out to breakfast at Shoney's and mailed a baby blanket to a friend back at Spring Lake. The rest of the day was spent doing laundry and just resting. At 5 pm the campground had an upcoming performer singing on the lawn and we enjoyed her talents a lot.

Thursday morning we left Nashville Country RV Park heading south on I-65 and then South east on T-155 passing by the Opry House and shopping center. We were glad that we had decided to take this route as I-65/I-24 were completely backed up for as far as the eye could see. We were heading for Knoxville, TN. and Buddy Gregg RV Center to have the ice maker on the refrigerator looked at as it was leaking. We arrived about 12:30 pm and registered at 1 when they returned from lunch. About 3:30 Zeke came out to see what he could find and within the hour he said that we were fixed and ready to hit the road. What had happened was a pin hole had worn in the water hose so he cut off about 4 inches and the drain needed blowing out. Thanks again Buddy Gregg.

Friday morning we left Buddy Gregg about 9 am after having breakfast at Cracker Barrel just up the street. We traveled I-40 to NC-64 in Mocksville, NC. We are at the Forest Lake Thousand Trails until Thursday. We have been to this park two other times and we really enjoy it here. The trees are beginning to change color and the weather temperature is just perfect. Days in the 70's and nights are in the 40's. Great for sleeping.

Well until next time, Take Care.
