Camping in Tellico

So I haven't posted in a while mainly because I've been busy with a number of things and then I'm not busy with things I have 90 (just added 5 new ones today) feeds that are always waiting for me to read. I don't read all of them and often I just read the headlines but I like to keep up with things.

But enough of that. I'm going to talk about my Memorial Day weekend because it was so great. First off it was Roxie's idea to go camping and I applaud her for such a wonderful idea. I decided that Merlaak should be the one to decide where we were going to stay because I had a rather busy week and he really wanted to try out his all-in-one super cooker. The super cooker is electric so we needed reservations at a campground with electricity (imagine that). After discovering that the whole state of Georgia was booked up he found the last spot available at the KOA campground in Tellico, Tennessee. The KOA was a tent, cabin and RV camp site in a field without trees, however it was right at the base of the tellico mountains. This particular feature I was quite exited about because I had been but 'up in them hills' before and knew some of the cool spots to visit.
We left Saturday for our 3 day, 2 night, trip. Merlaak and I both drove so Roxie and I go to fishing after everybody else was ready to go home. When we got there we set up our tents. Which reminds me, my tent is Awesome! I love Kelty. :) Anyways, we got them all set up except the extra tent that Anne brought because it 'just couldn't get up' and was rather 'complicated'. That night Roxie, Merlaak, and I went to Huckleberry bald we watch the stars. It was cold and cloudy and the ground was damp, but Roxie and I enjoyed it (I think Merlaak did too even though he won't admit it ;) ). Sunday we took a grand tour of the mountains including Bald River Falls, Huckleberry bald again, and Joyce Kilmor National "Big Tree" Forest.

Wow I just lost my post. ugh I hate it when that happens I had about twice this much written and now its gone. Luckly with Bloggers "Recover post" button I got all of the above back. Whew... at least I didn't lose it all.

Anyways all the stuff that I lost was really sappy anyways and you didn't want to read it. I did take quite a few pictures so you should head on over and look at them.

PS I'm mad at Jonas because he knew how much he weight when he was born.

I like sappy! I don't think you lost any of it, I think you just wrote that just to tease me. Shame shame....

Hmm... if memory serves correctly, it wasn't how complicated that other tent was... it was more along the lines of
"couldn't get it up." Ha ha... I'm funny..... ;)
