Douglas Lake

We are here at the TVA Head Waters campground on Douglas Lake,Tennessee. We will be leaving monday heading south. We were going to stay another week but,the Authority decieded to close the campground November the 1st. This campground is usually open year round. Probably due to budget cuts. This is another nice place where you can park beside the lake.

Free Parking

Well the week end found us attending our church homecoming in Matewan,WV. We parked behind the police station. Saturday night they had their Halloween block party in the area you see in the picture. Put on by the town fire department. With games and free hot dogs,chips and soft drinks. I got 2 hot dogs and chips. How about that a free place to park and free food. Now thats hard to beat.

With the police station in front and the flood wall behind us we felt very safe. Posted by Hello

Scenes and Scents of the Season

Holly berries on the trees with their red color and the tree leaves turning. You can smell the leaves and the pine in the air and you know what season it is.

Roller Coaster Yard Sale

This is a part of the rural highway 63 where they have a 100 mile long yard sale. Needless to say it was crowded. It extends from Glasow,KY into Tennessee. We had to see this while we were so close. Every community that had an fire truck had food for sale. There was some good buys.

What a view

This is the view out of our back window of our site along the river. No one seems to take advantage of these free campsites. This was when we were at the Corp of Engineers campground.

We're Not Lost

Its been a long time since I last posted. The reason I have'nt been able to get on line with my cell phone. I'm in Scottsville,Ky. at the library. We are camping at The Barren River Lakr tailwaters campground. Although the season is over there is free camping with water and a dump. Can't beat that. I don't know why more people don't take advantage of that. There are 46 sites and we are the only ones there. We are right on the river fishing,walking and laying in the sun. We plan on staying 2 more weeks.
