Elkins WV

Hi folks well we left Burnsville WV on Thursday 29th stayed at a COE park there (Bulltown) good park with full hookups but for us no cel service or air card (Verizon) was there 7 days. We arrived at revelle RV camp ground 7 miles east of Elkins. We are backed up to the cheat river very pretty setting. We have good wifi here but spotty cel service depending on what tree you lean against so when we are in town we make our calls. I lived in Elkins for 2 years when I was in 3rd & forth grade some of the area looks the same but most of the town has completely changed. I have family in Harman a first cousin Jack Teter whom we visited with today just so much to catch up on its been years sense we've seen each other My other cousin Nick Teter came down for the weekend from Ohio for our little reunion Nick comes down several times a year especially during hunting season We are the only three males left from the Teter side of our family and its the only time the three of us have been togather at the same time and its great to catch up on our families. we will spend tomorrow togather before going our separate ways again but we will see Nick and his sisters in Ohio next month. Jack has a big farm that covers a whole mountain and tomorrow we will ride four wheelers to the top we are told it is really beautiful as I am sure it will be. Monday we will move over to Brandywine WV to visit my two half sisters on my fathers side (White) thats another long story We will be over there a week. until later, safe travels

Bristol TN.

We arrived at lakeview RV park in Bluff City the 14th we have a spot over looking the Holston river. We plan on being here a week.Thursday we toured Bristol Motor speedway,they charge $4.00 per person that's a steal.We were taken by a/c van around the grounds, drove down the dray strip and did two laps around the track. We took a elavator to Bruton Smith's (the Owners) suite 15 stoties up and what a view we had of the entire track. our tour guide was great and let us walk up the 31 degree banking which was tough. we bought a few things in the gift shop and called it a day. Yesterday we drove to down town historical Bristol and went down State Street. One side is in VA. and the other side is in TN. lots of shops and restraunts very pretty. We will drive around the area the next few days and see other P O Is. I dont know whats up with the beer drinkers around here but MGD is only sold in 6 pack bottles. They have Miller-Lite in cases and MGD 64 but no MGD Oh well just have to suck it up and drink Lite for a while. This is the first down side I've found doing this life style. Until later gang, safe travels

Knoxville TN

Hi all you followers. We arrived at raccoon valley (escapees) RV park on Tuesday 29th June the manager here greeted us and told me I was not welcome but Kathy can stay anytime,so after much begging I can stay as a guess. Our friends Joe & Marcia & Billy & Kay had given the manager (Wallace) a heads up that I was to be given a hard time,but Kathy was to be treated as royalty. He played his part so well !!!!!! A great time was had by everyone. On Thursday Billy & Kay took us to Cumberland Gap National park what a beautiful place we had lunch in the quaint little town of Cumberland Gap and toured the historical little town . We all had a great day. Then on Friday evening we went out to eat with our our friends Joe & Marcia. They drove us down to the towns of Clinton & Powell in their open air Jeep we ate and shopped for (beer & wine) the weather was perfect for the drive. The park here is providing a lunch consisting of hamburgers, beans, potato salad, desert & tea or lemonade for the 4th of July for only $4.oo per person. We will be here till the 13th then move on down the road not sure were we will go yet but will post when we arrive ???? until later Safe travels.
