Tennessee, Alabama & Mississippi
After Missouri, we had a week to kill before our “Christmas House” would be ready for us. I’d like to say we were all up for the adventure but, truth be told, we weren’t looking forward to a week of camping again. We were all struggling in different ways and at different levels with homesickness. It had been an up and down battle since we left town in September but the holidays, of course, increased it exponentially. We missed our family and friends a lot. We missed staying in one spot for more than a few days or weeks at most. We missed familiarity. Full time travel is exciting, for sure. There’s always something new to see or do. It is also taxing. It’s hard to always be a stranger in places. It is uncertain and constantly changing. Sometimes, you just want to stay put in one place longer than you have the luxury to. I think we were all feeling unprepared to move on again, especially back into the tight quarters of our little Sadie. It was cold and dreary and we just wanted to stay inside under the covers for a while but we needed to press on. So we did. We packed up and headed over to Hohenwald, Tennessee to another Thousand Trails Campground right off of the Natchez Trace Parkway, Natchez Trace RV Campground.
