It's a small blog world!

On Sunday before we departed Seven Points COE in Nashville, Sedona and I went for a morning walk around the .7 mi loop.  As we passed by this one camper, lady camper came to the edge of the road after I had waved at her and she said, "is your name Carolyn."  I must have looked a little surprised but said "yes."  She said "I read your blog and saw where you were out here and was hoping to meet you!"  Wow, there are actually people other than family and friends who are reading my blog.  I told her how honored I was that she was reading and we sat and talked a while.  Brenda Lewis lives in Donelson and is retired.  Her husband is a truck driver who is still in the mad, mad work race.  They don't think they could ever full time but plan to extended travel when he retires.  It was just so cool that she follows along with me.  She said she doesn't post comments and I explained how it was important for us blogger to post comments and get feedback.  Maybe I'll hear from her again, one day.  Thanks Brenda and it was terrific to meet you.

Sedona and I went back to the campsite to complete our packing up and met wonderful people from California.  They were hanging around TN for a while and were heading to Johnson City.  Sure hope they find it cooler up in the East TN mtns.

We were in no hurry to leave and it's a good thing.  By the time I got to Cages Bend COE in Gallatin, it seems their check out time is 3:00 and my site was still occupied.  It didn't take long for those folks to vacate and we got set up in no time but it was so hot and muggy.  My friend, Ann Candler, came up for the night and we hit the water to cool off.   We had steaks, potatoes and a good salad.  In no time I got a phone call from fellow Nashvillian & RVer Vicky and her friend Brenda.  They were just returning from a whirlwind NE tour and stopped here for a couple of nights.  It was good to hear about their trip.  If you are interested in reading her blog, you can click and it will take you there.  She really had some experiences while on the road and she is a newbie.
Vicky has a captive audience with Gus & Sedona.  Steak is suchan animal attractor.
Like this campground but I think I prefer Seven Points over this one.  It has a swim beach while this one doesn't.

Later...

Great that you and Sedona took a walk or you and Brenda might have missed each other. How exciting to be sought out like that! Enjoy your new site and possibly some new adventures.

It really is a small RV blogging world. You might want to try Cedar Creek in Hermitage? It has a beach.
