Winter Home

Good News! We have a winter home that will extend into Spring 2014. While we wanted to head west, we are headed east. We will be wintering at Tremont Outdoor Resort in Townsend, Tennessee.

Tremont-FBThey are close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, Cades Cove, TN and our friends at Windy Valley Llamas in Blue Ridge, GA. When we left Blue Ridge in September 2012, we were warned that the Blue Ridge Mountains will call us back. Sure enough they have called us back to the area. We will also be close to my friend Becky in Piney Flats, TN.

We were thinking about heading west to Albuquerque, NM. We would make our arrival there just in time for the Hot Air Balloon Festival. Specifically, we were considering American RV Park, on I-40 just west of  Albuquerque. The following images from Google Maps makes it is easy to see the difference between the Desert Southwest and the Smoky Mountains. I-40 in Albuquerque will have significantly more traffic on it than TN 73 in Townsend. Plus we have more exploring to do in the Smokey Mountains.

American RV - TremontWe will finish up our work at Mark Twain Landing in Monroe City, MO around the middle of September. Our first stop will be the HWH Corporation in Moscow, IA where we will have the hydraulic levers on our motor home repaired.  From there, we will spend a couple of nights in Springfield, Ill to see the Abraham Lincoln Museum, Indianapolis, IN for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Louisville, KY for a trip to the Kentucky Derby Museum, Knoxville, TN, Blue Ridge, GA, then back north to our winter home. Nothing is firm on the trip just yet so anything can change along the way.

TripThat’s it for this time. Thanks for stopping by, Y’all come back now.

  1. Wish your winter home was going to be in the Rio Grande Valley, but I can understand the appeal of the Smokies. Congrats on the new gig. I’m sure our paths will cross again. 🙂

  2. Sounds like a good plan to me!

    Hope to see the two of you at some point while you are there! Nothing prettier than Christmas in the Smokies!
