Hi everyone. Welcome to our trip journal. I am trying this out so bear with me. I'll be trying to insert pictures eventually. I'm practicing for the Mount Rushmore trip. We Left home at 7am this morning and drove out rt 70 and then down 81 to Wytheville. We are staying at the Koa there. It is a beautiful KOA right off 81 but far enough off the interstate so we miss the traffic noise. The wifi here is very good, they have a heated pool (which isn't open yet) with a small water slide. Wythville is small but has several restaurants so after setting up we went into town for dinner. We decided we didn't feel like doing dishes tonight. The drive was 367 miles and took 7 hours. It rained almost the whole time. But better today than when we are in Ashville wanting to do something. About 30 minutes before reaching the KOA the sun came out so we hooked up in warm sunshine. Getting cold tonight but it is still very nice. Tomorrow we drive to Ashville. We will drive down 81 to 26 which is suppose to be very scenic. We will see. It is only about 185 miles so it will be a quick day.
