We keep finding color!

Creekwood Farm RV Park
Maggie Valley, NC

It seems we can't outrun Mother Nature.
The colors have not faded the 
farther south we go.

We had a good trip from
Granville, TN to
the Maggie Valley area of
North Carolina.

We drove into NC
through the Great Smoky Mountains..

The truck pulled Harvey well,
but the 'check engine' light
came on halfway through the mountain.
George didn't think the truck
was running quite right.
We made it to our campsite,
and got set up,

then ran up to the local
Chevy dealer to find out
what was up.
It may be that it needs a new
fuel filter..
so George will get an oil change
done tomorrow.

When we got back,
I thought Bloody Marys were in order..

so we sat outside with Mr. Gnome..

 ..and pondered what tomorrow will bring.


  1. Mr. Gnome sure is lucky to be going on such fine rides with you two. Laurie, you look mighty relaxed and happy in that last picture.

  2. Sorry to hear about the truck- hope it just the filter. Bloody Mary's should wash the troubles away. safe travels

  3. I changed my filters because of the same symptoms and it solved the problem. That bio-diesel mixed fuel that is out there now doesn't work so good in my engine.

  4. Sure hope it's nothing serious with the truck. The Bloody Mary's should have helped take the edge of least for tonight :)

  5. Yep, I'd have a Bloody Mary too. Hope the fuel filter does the trick.

  6. Hey george & Laurel. Don't forget Joeys for breakfast!! Try their sos!! Isnt that a nice campground?

    1. Saw Joey's yesterday. Closed on Thursday, so we'll head there later today! It is a beautiful campground..we love it!

  7. Hope you get the truck problem solved, always frustrating!

  8. Ahhh, shorts and t-shirts on the 25th of October! What a wonderful thought! :)

    Hope the filter change solves the truck issue!!

  9. We loved that area. We were there almost a month and never did run out of new things to see and do. If you get a chance, go see the wild elk of Cataloochee Valley.

    We stayed in Candler, right at the base of Mt. Pisgah.
