While we are in the Chattanooga area, we are staying at the Holiday Trav-L-Park in Rossville, GA. Coincidentally, it has the same name as the park we stayed at in Del Rio, Texas. There are a few more by this name throughout the country. In the early 1970's, they were opened as Holiday Inn Trav-L-Park. In the late 1970's, Holiday Inn determined they no longer wanted to be in the campground business and gave up all ownership at that time. All are now independently owned and operated. Many are top rated and this one is especially enjoyed by over night RVer's. Being only 1 mile from I-75, the park is a favorite of "snow birds" running up and down the interstate between Florida and northern states. We see all sizes and types of Motor homes, Class C's and 5th Wheels, including some really nice Prevost buses.

This Monarch was especially nice. Their tag read "TOYS4US".

Having a fun week with Logan, swimming at the pool every day. It is REALLY hot and humid! I left my camera at Samantha's last weekend so won't have any pics for a couple of weeks. :-( I just may have to go get it soon.
In the meantime, here's a favorite from 2007, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park:

Be careful what you wish might have to wait, and wait, and wait!!!

We are both pretty fed up with the feds and will just stay where we are for the summer. We got a call from Gulf Islands over a week ago yet nothing is happening as of today. No start date, no ok from HR (they appear to be in Mississippi where there are no phones!), no nothing. The person in charge (?) of whatever, keeps calling to let us know nothing. If Sam has to do another background check it will take at least 3 weeks. And the grade level is different so that is freaking them out? What a zoo. It's a wonder they ever accomplish anything. This is the third time we have dealt with federal employees from NPS, or Dept. of Interior, and they are all alike.......slooooooooooooowwww.

Anyway, we are planning a nice trip to visit Samantha, Nate and the boys this weekend and will probably bring Logan back for a week or so.
