Monday was another beautiful day in Pigeon Forge, TN. We had sunny skies and temps in the 60s. After getting some work and school done in the morning, we took a drive into town to see what was going on. The crowds had mostly left, and it was amazingly easy to drive from one end of town to the other!
The boys were anxious to drive go-carts, so we decided on “The Track”.
We bought a package deal, and Nicolas and Bryce made a beeline for Wild Woody!
After one race (when Nicolas had a dud of a car!), they decided that they needed more competition and convinced Tom to join them – not that they needed to twist his arm much!
The boys sure love their go-carts!!
After depleting all their tickets, we took a drive through Gatlinburg, but didn’t really see anything worth stopping for, so we headed back to the campground. We were leaving in the morning, and there was a pretty good chance of rain overnight, so we packed up the bikes, chairs and grill. Tom and I got some work done in the evening, and again on Tuesday morning before we finished packing up before the 11:00 am check-out time. Of course, the weathermen were wrong, and we didn’t get any rain overnight or Tuesday – in fact, it was a beautiful day with sunny skies and temps in the 80s!
With the possibility of severe storms on Tuesday night, we decided to play it safe and go to a location we were familiar with, and that we knew had paved roads and grassy sites (no mud!). So, we headed north on I-75, and after an easy 3-hour drive we arrived at the Kentucky Horse Park just north of Lexington. We paid $52.60 for 2 nights (with AAA discount), plus $9.95 for internet, and $5.75 for a bundle of firewood, and we settled into our site.
Site number 169 is on the outer loop, backed up to the horse park.
