Asheville, N.C.

Yes, Wilma was up before the sun again this morning!



She is really going to miss these mornings on the beach, listening to the waves, and watching the sun rise for the start of another day. Actually that goes for both of us!

We left Ocean Lakes, around 9am. Set the GPS and we were on our way North West homebound.

We pulled into the KOA Campground in Asheville, N.Carolina around 5pm. I believe we are in the heart of the Smoky Mountains or pretty close to the heart of them. There was one mountain climb on the interstate that had a 7% grade and slowed us down to 40MPH in second gear! Some of the truckers were slowing to 25mph.

If you click on the KOA link above you will see how close we are to interstate 40. But the map lies! Winking smile Our campsite is so close overlooking the interstate that I could hit the traffic with a shot from a slingshot! We will be sleeping with the windows closed and the air conditioner fan on to try to drown out the traffic noise. Sorry, but I would not recommend this campground for any length of stay mainly because of the traffic noise.

We traveled close to 380 miles today. We are about a third of the way home. Hopefully we will make it to Lexington Horse Park in Lexington Ky. for tomorrow’s stop. I know for sure there is NO internet service there. So..

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.


  1. Beautiful shots of the sun rise. Safe travels.

  2. You seem like really nice folks. I hope to run into you sometime along the road
