Blountville, TN

The new moose is loose!

We wrapped everything up at the dealership yesterday afternoon. After a restful night at our all too familiar KOA, we headed out this morning on our maiden voyage. The 339 miles flew by. This moose is fun and easy to drive. Paul and I shared driving duties and had a whole lot of fun.

The ride is so smooth! I just kicked back and relaxed and did a little reading. You should see the big black bag full of manuals we have. That'll keep us busy for awhile!

The only tricky part of our trip was the road from the interstate to the KOA here in Blountville, TN. It was just a bit more twisty and turny than we really wanted to tackle in a brand new 40-footer! But, Paul did great.

We are definitely in the hills of Tennessee! Our campground is nestled in rolling hills. And, the sites are painfully unlevel. It took a bit, but the new Bullwinkle finally found a position in this sloping slice of gravel to level up. With a Kansas game on the agenda for tonight, we quickly locked on to a satellite and brought ESPN up on the 37-inch flat screen. Thanks to Mark, the amazing technician at our dealership, we're able to kick back and enjoy the game. It seems the good folks at Winnebago were asleep on the assembly line when they installed the TVs in this coach. It was all very screwy. But, Mark sorted through it all and made it work like a charm.

As we head west to enjoy the holidays with our families, we are so grateful for the good folks at McGeorge Rolling Hills RV in Ashland, VA. Everyone - and we mean everyone - was professional, courteous and very skilled. They're great people. If you're looking for an RV, give Taz a call. And, tell him we sent you. Thanks to everyone at McGeorge for helping us make the most of our 600-mile detour. We absolutely love our new Tour. Ya'll definitely made it worth the trip.

We're thinking we'll just be here a night. But, since we invested so much time in setting up here, we might just have to make it two. Who knows?

Right now, we're ready to kick back, relax and watch the game. Rock chalk!
