Camped that area a lot during late 60s early 70s.

Really a neat area and close to Blue Ridge Parkway,a

must on any bucket list.

I signed up for the Southeast Truck Camper Gathering awhile back so I must be one of the ten that is going. Also made my reservation for a site at the Smoky Bear Campground. We've never been to the Great Smoky Mountains so we're looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to driving one of the most scenic drives in the country, the Blue Ridge Parkway.

hey - all you mid-west folks out there.

this will be the 2nd TC rally here in TN. come on out.

 

Gatlinburg, Dollywood is close by.

Cherokee NC where there are gambling casino's is close by. ok an hours drive. Excellent trout fishing.  

The Blue Ridge parkway is near by. The spring season will be a GREAT drive. We live about 10 miles south of it and you can

park overnite in our drive way. Notice I said 'overnite'.  there are two private CG's near by.

Mount Airy, NC - home town of Andy Griffith - in town we can eat lunch at Snappy Lunch, (get a pork chop sandwich) you can get a hair cut at Floyds barber shop, right next door to Snappy Lunch.

Tour the Andy Griffith museum.

Heck, I will even give you the .50 cent tour.

Chucks I forgot, ever heard of Donna Fargo, 'The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA'. Mount Airy is her home town also.

Got a street named after her. Andy also.

And if you are really nice I will introduce you my friend Linda who went to school with Donna. 

 

Finally, you can tell everyone 'you were in Mayberry'.

Stuart, I assume you're one of the hopefuls. I don't see any reason why you can't go to this gathering since you live only four hours away. I know you're wanting to get a few things fixed on the camper but from what you've been saying it looks like you'll have the repairs done by the first part of April. I just might take you up on your offer to "overnite" in the driveway when I come through there after the gathering. We'll have lunch at Snappy's  and then you can give me that 50 cent tour of the Andy Griffith museum. If we have time afterwards you can introduce me to Linda that went to school with Donna Fargo. Then, I can tell everyone back home that I've seen it all in Mayberry USA.

yea - the plan is to put the TC back on the truck in late March (wx depending) and take it to the guy who works on Rv's.

there really should be no reason for us not to be at the rally. but one never knows. I know there at least 2 repairs and possible a new

exhaust fan.

 

so I do not plan to make reservations until I know for sure.

 

 

I am also  thinking of sellng the TC and getting something else, possible a TT. So things are up in the air now.
