Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 1st Jul 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 76-To Concord, NC

Drove 317 miles in 6-3/4 hours to Concord, NC. Saw 2 deer in someone’s front yard as we left the campground-they were so pretty I thought at first they were fake, ‘til they took off.
Lost an hour in Eastern TN when we switched to Eastern time and hit some traffic in Knoxville and again the last 3 miles of the trip in Charlotte, but being the Friday before a holiday at 5PM it could have been much worse. Drove through the Cherokee Nat’l. Forest, Blue Ridge Mountains (which are always gorgeous) and the Smoky Mountains, where the highest peak at about 6,000 feet looked like only a large hill after seeing the Rockies, which were over 14,000 feet at times.
We’re camping at Charlotte Motor Speedway, no big NASCAR race this week-end so it’s just about empty. Harry’s daughter, Janice, Tim and their children live about 20 minutes away and we’re visiting for the week-end. Went for pizza at Dino’s (they have the best white pizza with spinach and bacon) and then to the fireworks. It’s hot here, about 97 when we set up, and humid, but that’s Charlotte in the summer.
