This is the travels of Joe and Nancy. Nancy is part Cherokee and I'm Hungarian,thus the name of our blog.
We started full timing May,1,2000.
Come be with us as we travel and see this great country of ours. We travel in our motorhome visiting beaches,state parks,national parks,corp of engineer parks. We have overnighted in Walmarts,24 hour grocery store,boat ramps, FlyingJ.
Well summer is over and we will be here in Hudson, Florida for the winter.
We woke up this morning to the temperature of 49° and it sure did feel cold.
We have been enjoying visit with our grandson Jeremy and family. We have been over to their house for a few hours each evening and will do so today.
Last evening we were over the great grand children were busy getting ready putting on their costumes to go trick & treating. Of course they had to get in the act of scaring Nancy and myself.
After they were gone we stayed a while with Jeremy to watch a college football game.
This is our view looking out the window parked in our site here in Cain's Creekside RV Park. This is a very nice quite place that is a "Passport America" member park.
Below are a few photos taken while visiting my brother Nick.
This is one of the many meals we had featuring ham this time.
I know its almost winter time but the small apple tree has a few blossoms on it.+
Tomorrow we will leave out going to Florida. We may reach the Winter Paradise Park in Hudson, Florida or not. (we will see).
Well short time visiting with Nick and Joann has come to an end again. The visit is always to short but even if we stayed a couple of weeks it would seem like a short time.
Nick and Joann must think we are starving because they are always wanting to fed us something. It is hard turning them down because I always gain a few pounds when we visit them.
They are overly good to us.
So thank you Joann and Nick for another good visit.
So now we are parked in the Cain's Creekside RV Park in Hahira, Georgia while we visit our grandson Jeremy and family. We will be here for three days then moving on down in Florida where we be for the winter season.
Our time at the Lake Sinclair campground came to an end yesterday. Because it was time for us to head on down the road to visit a few day with Nick and Joan (my brother and his wife).
This is another stop that we make coming and going to Florida that we enjoy very much of our family time. It seems like I always have things to do when I visit with Nick that I have to have his help.
This time the help I need is that there is a small leak somewhere with the radiator on the cavalier tow car.
That will be if it warms up as it was 41º when we woke up this morning.
Cushman RV Repair got the new in tank fuel into the shop by 10:30 Tuesday morning.
Then it was installed, the fuel put back in, all the paper work with the tow truck company and Cushman finished and We were on our way by 1:30 pm.
The Tow Truck Company (Reeves Wrecker Service) owner Tommy gave me a break on the cost because I didn't have any insurance or tow service policy.
Also I was satisfied on the cost of the repair from Cushman RV Repair which I thought was going to be more than they charged me.
So now we are here at the Lake Sinclair Campground in the Oconee National Forest for a few days trying to unwind from the hectic week we have had.
Well the large tow truck came yesterday as promised. After backing the tow truck up to the front of the motor home and raising the front of the motor home the driver (Rusty) had to crawl under it to disconnect the drive shaft.
It didn't take very long before he was on the way with Nancy and me following in the car. It wasn't a very good feeling to see our home moving down the road like this.
After getting to the repair shop we waited a short time to see if they needed any information.
They would start on finding the problem after they finished up on another job they were working on.
So Nancy and I took off to the Cracker Barrel to get us a late breakfast with us taking our time eating and enjoying it knowing we had no need rushing.
After our meal we went to the Dollar Tree for a few thing that we needed.
From there it was to Walmart to do some shopping and more or less just to idle our time away.
After getting to the repair shop and our motor home I saw this buckets and buckets of gasoline so with the service manger (Jeff) telling me what I suspected that the fuel pump in the tank was reason for the motor home not starting. He was waiting for the technician to remove the pump from the tank so he could get the numbers off it to order a new one.
We spent the night in the motor home where it sits hooked up to 50 amp so that was the nice part of it that we can be here as long as it takes to repair and not have the expense of a motel.
We it will not be more that a few days.
Our site in Petersburg Campground fifteen miles north of Augusta, Georgia.
We were suppose to have 50 mph wind Thursday night but it didn't happen. In fact what wind we had did not even move the motor home at all.
The wind coming across Thurmond Lake Friday did produce some white cap waves and no boaters on the lake for the day.
Our electric power went out at 2:00 am Friday morning and stayed off until late that evening due to the fact of a tree falling across the power line coming into the park.
It snapped a couple of power lines located one half a mile from the park.
Today is a different story with the campground full of campers and boaters on the lake.
I put a new fuel filter on the motor home thinking maybe that might be the problem but no luck with it starting.
We left the Walmart in Clayton, Georgia after picking up our prescription medicine from the Walgreen Pharmacy.
The next stop was Parsons Mountain Lake Campground. I think it was back in June when we stayed here going north. We really like this place with around 28 sites and we usually are the only ones here, The other thing is the price of $3.50 a night using the Golden Age Passport and that is with water, flush toilet and showers. Now that is a price hard to beat.
Yesterday we arrived and are here at the St. Petersburg COE Campground.
As usual another Problem.
I'm in a site and will be here until Monday when I will be pulled out with a tow truck.
The motor home died out before I got all the way back in the site and would not start. I think it might be the fuel pump that is in the gas tank.
We are connected to the electric and have water so that is better than this happening on the side of the road.
We are going to enjoy our time here so if we can do that with our problems surely you can------
We left Douglas Headwaters Campground Sunday but not to quick. When I got in the car to start it to connect to the motor home. I had one of those "oh no again" moments because the battery was dead. Cherisa and Haven came over to see us leave and she gave me a jump start so I went into town and bought a new battery. It seems as though my luck is still holding up.
We did get under way and soon going through crowded Gatlingburg.
Would you look at this, there's a Margaritaville in Gatlinburg.
There were a lot of hikers hitting the trails. They were parked in several places along the road all the way up the Great Smoky Mountains.
We were parked in our spot in The Cherokee National Forest at the Elkmont Campround.
We stayed for four days and left just after noon today. But not before we stopped in Cherokee to visit a laundromat to do our laundry.
We saw some elk including this old big buck. Look at that rack that he was proudly showing off.
We are parked at the Walmart in Clayton, Georgia for the night.
