It’s Friday!!

We took the day off yesterday and just lounged around the campground. Al and Jeanne Ross stopped by to visit. This is a couple that we just met in the campground in Pigeon Forge. It is so nice to meet new people and make new friends. We learned that they live near Crystal River Florida which is where we will be snow-birding January – March 2012. So we know that we will be seeing them again! Jeanne and I have something very much in common. We both have COPD so we shared stories about how this is affecting us and our daily routines.

Got up this morning and after having a couple of cups of coffee started packing up the 5er to head for Nashville. We left Pigeon Forge at 9:30AM and arrived in Nashville around 12:30 Central time.

We are staying at the Nashville Country RV Park in Goodlettsville, TN. This seems to be a very nice park and is not very far from all the excitement of the Nashville area. The campsites are nice with lots of grass and trees. Our satellite did not like these trees so we are using cable for the first time since we had the new dish installed up top. But the cable channel selections here are better than we usually see.

Charley and I just came in from walking the fur babies, Charley on foot and me in my Power Chair (good name for it don’t you think – POWER)…….

We took a few pictures on the drive here but none are worthy enough for posting.

We will be going out to dinner tomorrow night and going to the Grand Ole Opry!! Cannot wait! It has been quite a few years since we have been there and it was then still being held in the Ryman Auditorium. This one will be in Opryland. We have 4th row seats on the floor!! I am sure we will get some good pictures of this and we will share a few.



  1. Yes it is always nice to meet new people... I can't wait to hear who you see at the Grand Old Opry!!! We saw Carrie Underwood when we were there last!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  2. Opryland is a whole different experience than the Ryman but still a lot of fun!

  3. Grand Old Opry-sounds like fun. Can't wait to read your write up on it. Have fun be safe.

  4. Great seats for the Grand Old Opry. Have fun and take lots of pics!!

  5. We love the Grand Ole Opry! Hope you guys have/had a great time and saw some good talent!
    We were impressed with Nashville Country RV too. Not a bad campground at all and a decent price! You all enjoy!
