Clarksville TN to Cullman AL and Plans For Our Arrival In DeBary

Cullman, AL

64 deg. clear, N. wind @ 4 mph.
Forecast = Clear. High of 86F. Winds less than 5 mph.

Because we had a longer day ahead of us, we pulled out of the Clarksville CG about 9:05 and continued SE on I-24 towards Nashville. It took us about an hour to get to the city, and by the time we arrived, the rush hour traffic had subsided and we pretty much made it though without even slowing dow. ;-)   In Nashville we turned South on I-65 and followed it down into Alabama and to the Cullman CG in Cullman, AL.

It was 12:35 when we pulled in so we had traveled 190 miles in 3 hours and 30 minutes and that included a "pit stop" at a rest area along I-65.

We like the Cullman CG. We've been here before and have always been treated well. The CG is well maintained and the sites are full-hookup and level. We're in a different part of the CG this time because Jim asked for a shady site, as the temperatures were hovering around 90 deg. when we pulled in.

This is one of those parks that not everyone likes. It's what I call "rustic". It's an older CG that doesn't have all the amenities, some of the sites are fairly close together, and the road coming to the park definitely leaves something to be desired. (it's narrow, rough, hilly and twisty).

However, the owners are great people who will do their best to make you comfortable. The prices are reasonable, $20.79 for a 30 amp site, and for the most part, it's nice and quiet and out in the country.

Today, we'll continue heading South and then SE towards Georgia. Jim has a CG picked out SE of Montgomery, (near Troy, AL), and I'm pretty sure we'll head for it.

Linda called Laura after we got settled in yesterday afternoon. She and Lindsey are going to go over to the house and turn on all the electric circuit breakers and make sure the refrigerator is working. It was also decided that when we got to DeBary, we'd go to their house and park Bobbie T in or next to their driveway until all the "stuff" is unloaded and taken over to the house. (Laura and Lindsey will help with that). Then, when most everything is transferred and the house is ready to be moved into, Bobbie T will be taken to the storage lot.

Sounds like a plan to me!!! ;-)

Did you know that the word Alabama means tribal town in the Creek Indian language?
