3 Things Going On In April

4 Comments

1.  Gunter Hill Campground ⛺️ 
This is one of my favorite campgrounds. I will stay here the limit of 14 days camped along the shore of the Alabama River.  This is where I currently have my World Headquarters.  

2.   NOLA
I am excited about the upcoming move to New Orleans.  I have a month scheduled there. 

3.    Easter
For some it is the yearly Christian celebration of Jesus returning from the grave.

“New life ”

And for others it is the spring fertility festival. 

“Fertility”

In both cases it is the celebration of returning life after the passage through the cold and dark.

Travel Day

4 Comments

Today is a travel day. That seems so odd to me. I’ve been stationary so much in the past  months not moving has become my habit. Before all this, rolling was my habit. How quickly I’ve adapted to a stationary/sedentary lifestyle.  I need to roll on and get back to that routine.  

I’ve got my moving day checklist and I’m working it. I don’t want to leave something undone.  It’s no fun to have items rolling/flying about, doors or windows banging open and closed, or possessions accidentally left behind.  There are many things to check and it’s easy to overlook some.  I have before. 

Prayers and/or good vibes are greatly appreciated. I’m headed to Minooka Park. It is not far (10 miles) but I’m out of practice. Plus I have to back in. I’m not good at backing in without a spotter.  Maybe I can get someone to help at the park.

Traveling Style 

11 Comments

Someone asked if coddiwomple was my method of travel.  I immediately knew the answer was a resounding “Yes!”   I have notions of where I may go.  I like New Orleans.  I like to be warm.  I like new experiences.   I like the west.  I like seeing my family and friends. These things influence my journey.  All that being said, I often travel through the vast “cone of confusion” and that’s good too because it always goes somewhere interesting.  I’ve spent the last month or so in the cone of confusion and more is on the horizon. It is quite exciting.  So coddiwomple it is. 

I have never been much of a “year in review” kind of guy. I am even less interested in looking back over my life for whatever one is supposed to seek out.  But as I started thinking about my travels as coddiwomple I realized that maybe my life was been one long coddiwomple.

Flat Top House

“At a cost of around $3400 each, 1622 of these Type B-1 Houses, with 576 square feet of living space, were built in Oak Ridge between 1943 and 1945 to house some of the 75,000 people working at the plants.” – Paul Mashburn

Chapter 9

An RV Hero arrived in his crimson chariot.  OK OK a red truck   

After much looking and testing, he and I agreed to a two pronged attack. Phase one:

Replace the main batteries. 

$360 later I’m the proud owner of these beauties.  Not installed yet though.

Chapter 4

Today I await the mechanic. He is going to try and start the coach. We will see.  



Embracing the change.
Embracing the strange.
Embracing the chaos.
Embracing the paradox.

The Elk Viewing Tower

6 Comments

Hatfield Knob Elk Viewing Tower is located at the Sundquist Unit of the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in Campbell County in East Tennessee.  


Between 2000 and 2008, 201 elk were released by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) on the Royal Blue and Sundquist Wildlife Management Areas. The most TWRA surveys now place the number of elk at around 600.



I didn’t see any elk while I was at the viewing tower. However on the walk back to the jeep I saw two in the woods.  The only reason I noticed them was the amount of noise they made. They were not being stealthy at all.  I could not get good pictures because of the trees and undergrowth blocking the shots.

I Went for a Ride

20 Comments

One reason I tow a Jeep Wrangler is to go off the pavement exploring.  This day I took advantage of some of the vehicle trails in Norris State Park. 



I wasn’t able to find out what these rock troughs were for but I still working on it. 



An underwater bridge

This was a good road to take. 

This trail was a mistake. I got stuck for a while. I finally managed to wiggle my way loose.  I turned around and came back.  Later I discovered this was a horse trail, not a vehicle trail.
