It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Exploring, and Grilling.

Our Location today is Sevierville, Tennessee.

Last night we thought that we wouldn’t have to run the heaters to stay warm that we’d simply stay under the covers and all would be good. When I woke up at 3:00 shivering I knew that our thoughts had been incorrect and proceeded to set up the cube heaters. After going back to bed the next thing I remembered was waking up at 7:30 nice and toasty. 
Sun rising in the middle of the picture. Taken from our back room.
I managed to read all the morning blogs and E-mails before Kathy woke up just after 8:00. As soon as she came downstairs she noticed the temperature difference right away as heat rises so the bedroom was warmer. By the time her hot coffee had warmed Kathy up you could hear the trailer starting to expand from the growing warmth of the sun. 

We had planned on visiting a local Flea Market this morning at the north end of Sevierville so it didn’t take long for us to get out the door. By going today on the Friday we’d miss the chaos caused by the weekend crowds and by going this morning we were also beating the warmer temperatures of the day. 
Kathy did look at a few Quilts.
We walked all the aisles and managed to see quite a few vendors that almost tempted us to spend a few dollars but after checking out the displays that we were interested in our wallets never lost any weight today. 

As we were leaving the parking lot there at 11:00 we noted the Bass Pro Shop across the highway.  Neither of us had ever been in one of their outlets so we decided to check it out. We were amazed at all the sporting goods sold for camping, fishing and hunting. They had every caliber of hunting fire arm that you might need. Bass boats, canoes and kayaks of any color or length to meet all your needs. Fishing equipment that would supply a city of fisherman. Equipment for preparation of storing and cooking your catch or kill. For the outdoor chef they had all kinds of grills and smokers you can imagine. We even saw all this without taking a single picture. Again our wallets stayed intact and we were back at the trailer by 12:30 having the last of the Fried Vegetable Cabbage we made the other day for our lunch.      

Kathy didn’t sleep soundly last night so while she took a Snap I went out to prep the Weber Q and empty our grey tanks. Back inside I was back on the phone with Chris at Verizon to see if he had made any progress on this mess that he caused us. Again the answer was that he was working on it and would get back to me before the end of the day. 
Salad with Pork Roast that was grilled on the Weber.
As soon as Kathy was up I started grilling a small sized Pork Roast on low and slow on the Weber just like George always says to do. I had to reposition the grill a few times because of the change in wind direction so the flame would not blow out but after that everything cooked nicely. I still had time to read blogs that had been posted since this morning while periodically checking how the roast was cooking. Just before 4:00 with the use of the meat thermometer we knew it was completely cooked. Kathy had made a nice salad to go with it and it was a healthy and tasty meal with the moist smoke flavored meat.

Chris did call back but his suggestion will not resolve our problem. This evening we had what will probably be our last campfire for this trip. It didn’t take long for the temperature to drop once the sun went down. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Nice to see you are getting use of that Weber Q.

  2. Those no-money-spent shopping trips are the best, aren't they? So glad you could have a final campfire!
