Bark Camp

Saturday getting up and ready we were ready to go to Princeton to visit Nancy's sister Callie.
I parked at the Kroger store unhitched the car so we could drive it to Callie's house where we picked her up and went out to eat.
We chose to eat a Mexican meal and the food was very good and thank you Callie for picking up the tab.
We were close to the Walmart so I asked Callie if she needed to get anything while we were there which she did.  After her and Nancy bought a few things it was back to Callie's house for a short visit that was about total 3 hours it was time to get back on the road.
Soon we were on Alt 58 route in Virginia where the roads are twisting and turning up and down hills.
There are also very wide sections between the hills for some level farm land.
Yeah a bunch of hills.
We got to Coeburn, Virginia and stopped at a Walmart for the night.
Yesterday after getting ready I filled up the motorhome with fuel at $1.84 using a Walmart gift card that included a .03 discount.
Just look at the size of that one. The scene changed from hills to mountains.
With it raining on and off all day I soon came to the place I wanted to stay for a few days.
Now let me tell you some of these places are out of the way in National Forest Campgrounds.
This one is the Bark Camp Recreation Area Campground in the Jefferson National forest.
After getting off the main road it was up, up way up and along the ridge of the mountain then down, down the mountain to the campground.
Added to the narrow road with all the rain it started getting foggy. But we did make it and got a site to park in and Nancy was glad to be off the narrow road.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Traveling the narrow winding roads is always a concern because most times you get someone in an old jalopy that comes flying around the bend at you blaring their horn as if you're taking up too much of the road. Glad you made it safely.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

Love your blog. Outstanding photos. I too run around the back roads of mostly the east coast. I am half Cherokee, half mermaid and half crazy. ;)
