Wednesday, Aug 22 – Saturday, Aug 25
It’s been 5 days since my accident, and I have taken a little time off from blogging while I am healing. For the sake of our records, I am going to recap those five days. . . NO PICTURES!
On the day after the accident, I had the whole day to laze around at the campground.
Thursday was spent in the car as we relocated from Meramec Caverns to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. Riding in the car was not much of a problem, as my best position is reclining on my back – with the heated seats fired up to high! That night I was good enough to go to El Mazatlan Grill, a great Mexican restaurant close to the campground.
Friday we toured the Visitor Center of Mammoth Cave National Park and Tom took a 2-hour tour. In the afternoon we went to see the new movie MEG . . . I just love a good shark movie!
Saturday, I was up for a visit to the Corvette Museum. That was interesting – especially the exhibit that showed the cars that were victims of the sink-hole cave-in a few years ago.
That brings us up to today – Sunday. We left Mammoth Cave and headed to Chattanooga – an easy 5-hour drive and a move back to Eastern Standard Time. We are staying at the Holiday Travel Park just minutes from Ruby Falls, Rock City, Lookout Mountain, and the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park – a ton of stuff to see and do.
After settling in we drove to the top of Lookout Mountain to view a projection-mapped, digital battle presentation of Chattanooga’s Civil War and the “Battle Above the Clouds.” The Chattanooga battles (coming right at the time of Gettysburg) changed the outcome of the Civil War; from here General Sherman staged his “March to the Sea.” We walked around Point Park and were amazed at the beautiful views of the City of Chattanooga open in the valley before us.
I got a few pictures from Lookout Mountain and Point Park, and with that, I think I am back to continuing my blog in more detail!
Tomorrow we have more planned in Chattanooga.
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
