We got the RV back yesterday from Peco Campers in Tucker, Georgia. We bought the RV from Peco 6 1/2 years ago, and they see to all of our maintenance and repairs. All RV systems are checked and repaired, the outside of the RV is washed, and the inside has been thoroughly cleaned.
Big Red (our F250 Turbo Diesel pickup truck that hauls the 5th wheel) got the all clear from Ford this morning (he developed an oil leak that had to be checked out.)
I had hoped to reach the Smokies by April 15th, in time for the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage but it just didn’t work out this year. We will see different flowers blooming, the light green leaves of spring on the trees… by all accounts, it’s beautiful there right now!
The GSM site on Facebook reports Flame Azalea is blooming now and Mountain Laurel isn’t far behind… www.facebook.com/SmokyMountainsWildflowers
