Life is Great, on Route 88......

Happy Saturday evening all!!  It's Pod here, back with my final Raccoon Holler Post for this camping trip.  It's been a wonderful day here, and as always I have a story to tell.   

This morning, after breakfast, showers, etc., Rob and Trisha started taking down camp.  Not completely, but just some of the camping gear.  Then Cousin Sharon came over from her campsite, and after a bit of chat, the question was raised about the plan for the day.  

Rob suggested the gang load up in Levi, take the remaining picnic supplies, and head over to Jefferson, NC.  Once there, take NC Route 88 and follow it through the back country of Ashe County and work our way over to Elk Knob State Park for lunch, then drive back through the communities of Meat Camp, Todd, Sutherland, Warrensville, and Clifton.  Rob told me the drive was grand, with beautiful mountain views, and the picnic was great too. 

Then was back to The Holler by mid-afternoon.  After walking Jackson, and unloading the chairs, etc. from Levi, Trisha and Rob finished putting things away, taking down The Clam, and generally getting everything ready to leave tomorrow.  Rob spent some time draining and filling, and draining my black tank to make sure it was rinsed out really well.  

Here's a few pictures from our day.  Rob was busy driving most of the time, so he didn't get to take too many pictures.  You'll have to check out Cousin Sharon's blog, cause Rob told me she took a bunch!!

This evening's supper was left overs from last night's BBQ feast.  It was still mighty tasty.  Then just relaxing in the cool mountain evening.   Rob said he may take my awing down before dark, leaving very little to do tomorrow to get ready.   As always thanks for stopping by today to hear about our adventures. 

Until next time, stay safe out there......-Pod
