We finally made it to the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, and then Cheri noticed smoke billowing out from underneath the RV. If you missed part one, you can find our blog post and video here!
We almost had to spend the night at Big Lots or Walmart while we troubleshooted the problem. Thankfully there was a Lowes Home Improvement store right around the corner with a huge parking lot. We spent the night at Lowes, and it was very quiet, and it felt safer than the other options.
After the repairs were completed, we finally made it to our campsite right across the border in Dillard Georgia. We stayed at a beautiful campground called River Vista Mountain Village. After settling in and getting a good night’s sleep, we headed up the road and met Cheri’s family for lunch in the cute little mountain town of Highlands North Carolina. Then we made our way to the cabin Cheri’s family had rented for an awesome dinner that evening!
As chance would have it, Chad and Tara from Changing Lanes were also in the area! We made plans to meet up at a cool little winery called 12 Spies Vineyards in Rabun Gap Georgia. Chad and Tara introduced us to the proprietors, Mike and Shelly Brown, who also plan to full-time RV. That’s right, this winery is for sale!
What do 2 men with 2 expensive drones do? Drone wars, Tom and Chad had fun seeing how close they could fly together without crashing! Haha!
Despite our challenges, this was such a fun trip spending time with family and great friends! This trip is a great reminder to always Enjoy the Journey no matter what the road or life brings. Now we head South toward Charleston, but before we get there, a quick overnight stop turns into a, well….let’s say another interesting experience! Remember to subscribe, so you never miss a video!
