We are almost ready to go!! Update on the BBQ.

We are almost packed and ready to go. All that is left is the final packing that has to be done at the last minute before closing up the 5er.

We will be heading out as early as possible tomorrow morning headed for Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We will be staying at Creekside RV Park for 4 nights, with plans to see the sights of Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge in addition to getting some much needed rest! We are excited about getting back on the road again. This leg of our trip will take about 4 1/2 hours so we expect to arrive by early to mid-afternoon (depending on how many fur baby stops we have to make along the way). And people stops too I might add……

We had a wonderful time at the BBQ for Charley’s Dad Friday night and Saturday. Saw a lot of family that we had not seen in a while. Jason (our son) was in charge of cooking the BBQ and everyone raved about how good it was. He and his Dad and sister stayed up until around 2:00AM, took the meat off the fire and wrapped it for cooling and then they went for breakfast at the local Waffle House before going home for a few hours of sleep. Then back working on the meat at 11:00 Saturday morning getting it ready to eat. The BBQ was hosted by Charley’s brother Bob and his wife Betty at their home on Lake Murray. Our estimate is that about 70-80 people attended. Charley’s Dad (remember he is 94) seemed to have a really good time.

Below are some pictures that we hope you enjoy.
