After many many problems with the RV it was finally time to take it home, pack it up and head out.. My RVD friend Gina had arrived and it was time to pull out. We each had walkie talkies on us and chatted throughout our drive towards North Carolina….
We took our time and took a route I was not familiar with and stopped along the way at Cracker Barrels for the night. We arrived in NC with a few days to spare before the RV Dreams rally.
We checked into Tallulah Gorge State Park for a night, got laundry done, had a campfire, and enjoyed a hike to the gorge and overlook…It is one of the oldest geological features in North America. We also toured the interpretive center and watched the short video.
Leaving late morning, we didn’t have far to travel to meet up with another solo friend DJ.. We parked for the night in the Walmart in Franklin and got stocked up on food.
The following morning we headed down the road to The Great Outdoors RV Resort for the week. We were there a day before the rally, but started right in with the fun, at Howard & Linda’s campfire…
The following day we cooked breakfast at the Solo Cafe. Kyra had transported our cafe sign that another RVD member, Mike had made for us. She met up with him this summer in NH.
That afternoon we helped Linda get things ready for registration and then we worked at helping folks get registered. We had a wonderful introduction and catered meal that night. Of course when that ended,we ended the day back at the Solo Cafe with nightcaps and fellowship.
The week progressed with seminars to attend during the day and dinner and fun at night..
These are some pictures from the week:
