When I looked at the calendar this morning, it hit me square in the face that it was time to start planning our trip back to Georgia from the North Rim. It is less than 2 months now before we hitch up the trailer and pull out down the Kaibab Plateau.
Our plans for this trip are to stop for a day or two in Clarkesdale, Mississippi to visit Morgan Freeman’s restaurant there and listen to some blues. We have been wanting to go there for some time now. We’ll also stop overnight in Greensboro, Alabama to visit our friends at Valley Grocery and enjoy a plate of fried catfish.
Our first destination will be Jellystone Campground in Waco, Georgia, where we’ll spend about a month.They charge $300 a month plus electricity that you use, so I’ll have to be sure to take an electric meter reading as soon as we get there. I have forgotten to do this in past and wound up being overcharged for electricity when we were ready to leave.
After our time is up in Waco, we’ll be heading out to Unicoi State Park in Helen, Georgia where we will be volunteer camp hosts until about mid April. We are really looking forward to spending time in Georgia this winter, and seeing all our friends and family again.
While we’re at Unicoi, we’ll be less than 10 miles from Fabgrandpa’s parents, and less than a hundred miles from our friend Terry who is working at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With two of our daughters living within eighty five miles, and numerous other friends and family in the area, it’s going to be a very busy winter for us! We’re going to be wearing out the route planning software for sure!
