Second day on the road..4th state.

We solved the problem of the hot water heater in the trailer without resorting to RV repair.  In the middle of the night after reading the manual before bedtime, the solution presented itself.  Easy peasy!  It was so good to hear the ignitor do its thing!  Hot showers for everybody!

The trailer was filled with the smells of spring flowers picked from the flower beds at home before leaving.  The Hyacinth smell  is scrumptious.

So a slow and gentle start to the day and then we hit the road.  First, another crossing of the Ohio River back into Louisville, Kentucky.

Followed by three hours of pleasant scenery and many Good Friday drivers.

Then we arrived at our campground in Goodlettsville, TN, just north of Nashville.  Thank goodness we stopped here.  We went one exit south to get some supplies and were appalled at the traffic.  Ick.  How do yo folks in urban areas deal with it!!!!  So we returned to our quiet town and our campground to veg out.  We are going to spend tomorrow here too and take a break from the road.  Just putz about, do the laundry, read, and whatever.  Touristing in Nashville does not really appeal to us as much as the quiet day together.

Vacationing is definitely tied to only having to take care of a space that is 8′ by 25′.  That space also means that we spend more time doing things together.  A good thing for vacation time.

This campground is more rural than the last although we are still close to the interstate.  Here is the view out or picture window.

Spring is definitely further along here than at home.  The trees are budding and the dandelions have appeared.

The weather was so beautiful that I decided to grill.  The Bearded One had a hankering for hot dogs.  I NEVER have that hankering.  When I was a child, my older sister told me that hotdogs were like caterpillars and I have not like them since!  So, he had his hotdogs…(he gives two thumbs up to Eckrich Premium Hotdogs) and I had a grilled portobello on homemade whole wheat bun with tartar sauce (the recipe called for herb mayo but I didn’t have mayo), sliced onion, and fresh spinach.  I give two thumbs up (more if I had more thumbs) to the mushroom sandwich!

Portobello Mushroom Sandwich, so good I had to take two bites before the picture.

    Baby chicks in the eggs maybe, but I do NOT remember the caterpiller story—-maybe you had an imaginary older sister.

      Hmm. Since Pat could not talk at that point, who could it have been…oh, well…you probably did me a favor on the hot dog thing.
