Rainy Saturdays in the S-RV

Cheoah here.  Can I tell you about our day on Saturday?

I have to tell you about the day, not show you, because the humans were worried about getting camera equipment wet.  Apparently, the deluge of rain that we got would have overwhelmed the technical equipment.  Oh, well.

We started off Saturday morning on the first leg of our trip over to Knoxville, Tennessee to stay in the Big Ridge State Park.  We have told you about this park many times, including the time we met some big dogs in the woods.

Here is an important fact.  It takes just over two hours to drive to the park from our house.  Apparently, though, in a heavy downpour, the S-RV is MUCH slower going over.  That and the fact that they stopped in some place called Pigeon Forge, though we never saw any pigeons crossing rivers.  Plenty of water, but no forging pigeons.  So it took us much closer to 8 hours to get to the park.  We could be in real trouble if we go to the Siberian Husky Club of American National Speciality next year when it is in Kansas.  We may have to leave a month in advance.

Anyway, when we finally got to the park, we went for a hike, but it was still pouring down rain.  But when we got back, it was supper time.  Have I mentioned how much I like supper time?

Sunday, we should be pulling in to Chattanooga, and hopefully we make much better time Sunday morning.  So I had better rest up.

    My Mommy says Tennessee is a beautiful place and she’s been to Pigeon Forge. I hope you had a great day, despite the lengthy time to get to your destination.

    Rivers? I thought Pigeon Forge was where the pigeons crafted their high-quality ironworks …

    8 hours is a long time, but worth it! I can’t wait to hear about your week!

    Ammy says too bad about the lack of pigeons – she LOVES to stare at that kind of birdie! I”m not sure why.

    Are you there yet? We bet you have a blast and from your Sibernet post it looks like you had another exciting adventure with those big dogs. Paws crossed that you DO make it to Lawrence next year.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    So, uh, nobody’s having any fun yet? Just stick it out, what else can you do, watch for more deer-dogs and flashing fluds.

    Anybody bring a deck of cards? Bonez? Anything?

    Kisses,
    Stella
