Greetings from the Creek......
Moonshine Creek Campground in Sylva, NC that is. We left home about 11:30am Saturday morning, and arrived about 2:30 pm that afternoon. It was a struggle just to get our trip started, because just as Rob was coming into take a shower after hooking up the pod, he got stung by a yellow-jacket on the big toe of his right foot. That was no fun at all!!
Then moments after backing in the site and starting to get un-hooked from the pod, Trisha fell. We are both o.k. now, but Saturday afternoon/evening we were both a bit bruised and battered.
Here are a few pictures from around the campground. We will spend the night here Sunday night, and then hit the Blue Ridge Parkway ending up in Spruce Pine, NC Monday afternoon.
This is a great little campground "shoe-horned" along the side of a clear running mountain stream. Some sites are tight, some are not. Ours is really nice. The only thing really different about this campground is when we leave, we have to hitch up and back down out of our section past about 5 or so sites to where we can turn around. For the most part, the only noise you hear is the rushing of the creek. That is a good thing for sure!!
Check back tomorrow for another update, until then, stay safe out there...-R,T,&J.
(p.s. Scooter Brown is safely back home with his family.)
