OMG!! Sam just got a call from Gulf Islands National Seashore about a maintenance position............he has to call them back when he gets back to the camper today at 4:00. The lady said she had a few more to call ahead of him (?) so here's hoping it works out. We would give two weeks' notice here and be on our way SOUTH!

Having a grand ol' time in Rossville, GA, at the Holiday Trav-L-Park. It's a pretty nice park. The sites are a little on the small side.

Here's a pic of our site and a few pics of the River Walk in Chattanooga. It's about 15 minutes away.

Best laid plans............

Woweee...been gone for a while! The dog ate my computer cord. ;-(
We bit the bullet and I ate my words and now we are in Rossville, GA, and Sam is once again working for the Feds at the Chickamauga & Chattanooga Nat'l Military Park. Oh does talk.
We left Tanner SP on April 10 and headed up to James Floyd SP, on our way to Rossville. We stayed there for a is a beautiful park...similar to Tanner only bigger. Sam started his new position on April 12 and "commuted" from Floyd. The next weekend we moved up to Rossville to the Holiday Trav-L-Park. It looked better this time, now that the dogwoods were blooming and the grass had greened up. It's a lot like the park by the same name that we stayed at in Del Rio, TX last year. We did get a site on the end of the row so we are looking out on the main road and can see all the "comers and goers".
We are just about 3 hours from family and are going to visit them all on Friday, 5/7, after Sam gets home from work. It does maintenance work....drives the company truck to Lookout Mountain every day (about 15 minutes away) and that will be his territory for the duration, I guess.
I will post some pictures as soon as I get a new cord for the computer. There's not a whole lot to do around here. We've already been to Ruby Falls, Rock City & Lookout Mountain in prior years. There is a River Boat Cruise we may take one day and the River Walk in Chattanooga (15 minutes) is pretty. Largest mall in Tennessee is just 10 minutes away. Everything is really close because Chattanooga is not that big. There are probably 5 Walmarts within a 15 mile radius. No matter where you go, there is always one handy! :-)
