|Wednesday, May 17, we drove to Lenoir City a few miles west of Knoxville. It was a beautiful drive, through rolling, tree covered hills of Tennessee. Even the rest area stop for lunch was a pretty area. Drive time was about 3 hours. We stopped overnight at the Crosseyed Cricket Campground. It has great landscaping, two ponds, large swimming pool and a small brook right beside our parking spot. There are ducks all over the place and a peacock running around. Sadie tries to catch them all. The instructions at the campground (any campground), is to pick up after your dog, but the ducks leave a bigger mess than Sadie does. The other strange thing about this campground is that nobody is here to check you in, it is a self check in. You stop by what looks like a picnic shelter, pick your own site from a map, put your money and registration in a drop box and go park. Later on we saw a man riding around on his two wheeled Segway(sp) working on the swimming pool. Probably trying to get it ready for the summer season. When we arrived in Tennessee, Carol remembered that Wayne Tolbert would come to the Kansas City area from Tennessee, to enter the NATRC horse rides. So she looked up his address, he happened to live in the town we were in, Lenoir City. She called him and they made arrangements for us to meet he and his wife, while the motorhome was worked on, in the morning. We have to be at the Freightliner service center by 7:45 Thursday morning. That is way too early for retired folks.
