Aug 8, 2019 - August 8, 2019 – Dallas, Rome and Mount Berry, Georgia

August 8, 2019 – Dallas, Rome and Mount Berry, Georgia I got on the road about 8:30 this morning. My 1st stop was in Dallas where there are some fiberglass “Muffler Men”. There were a couple of men and Wonder Woman. From there I went on to Rome where I spent a considerable amount of time. At the Visitor’s Center there was information about the Civil War battle of May 16-18, 1864. Another marker talked about the passage of DeSoto through the area. In 1539, DeSoto landed in Florida with 600 people, 220 horses and swine for food. He wintered...

Sep 13, 2017 - 3 Interesting Stops

Foggy and misty through the mountains but not a bad drive. Stopped at the Lodge Factory Store in South Pittsburg, TN on my way to Scottsboro. The factory is located behind the store but is only open for tours one weekend in April. The factory store sold every product made by Lodge plus some others. Picked up a few small items and continued down the road. The Unclaimed Baggage Center is an interesting place. 70% of the items for sale are truly from unclaimed baggage- 30% is from "trucks unable to complete their deliveries". I spent quite...

Aug 9, 2017 - August 9, 2017 – Huntsville and Scottsboro, Alabama

August 9, 2017 – Huntsville and Scottsboro, Alabama They got the new control board put in yesterday, but they found another problem. The key pad for the jacks has gone bad and that is what caused the control board to fail. They didn’t know that until the new control board was put in. They have order the new key pad which should be here tomorrow. I went to Scottsboro to the Unclaimed Baggage store just to have something to do. In the afternoons of Monday-Thursday, they draw names for a chance to open an unclaimed bag. You don’t get to keep...

Aug 3, 2017 - August 3, 2017 – Scottsboro and Mentone, Alabama and Belvidere, Tennessee

August 3, 2017 – Scottsboro and Mentone, Alabama and Belvidere, Tennessee They were going to work on the coach today so I needed to be out of it. I headed for Scottsboro to the Unclaimed Baggage store. I spent a couple of hours just prowling around. From there I headed to Mentone to see a covered bridge. When I got there I discovered that it was on private property so I couldn’t see it. However, just getting there was worth the trip. I was on narrow, windy roads to Mentone. The county road to the bridge area was very narrow and winding. I...

Aug 14, 2016 - See-More's Lawn Party

Its been a quiet few days... Last Wednesday we enjoyed an evening of food and adult beverages with Steve's daughter Lindsay and her hubby Austin. We ate at Harriet B's in Birmingham and it was fabulous fried chicken. You order it like you would wings - plain, mild, hot, turbo, they served collard greens and pimento macaroni and cheese. DELISH! I had been challenged by our friend Jamie Phillips to drink an IP in every state..so we had a Fairhope IP in Birmingham. It was too hoppy for me, but Steve liked it. The Brooks then took us to Tavern...

Oct 30, 2009 - Unclaimed Baggage Center

From Wills Creek RV Park, Fort Payne, in the NE corner of Alabama. For years I have been hearing about the Unclaimed Baggage Center, in Scottsboro, Alabama. It is a business that offers for sale stuff that has remained unclaimed from airlines, hotels, etc. I’ve often heard about it & now I can say that I have seen it. It is as much of a novelty as it is a source for bargains, though there are lots of good bargains to be had there. I don’t know their processes for obtaining their inventory, or how they process it for resale. I was intrigued...

Dec 10, 2007 - More adventures

December 5-6, on through Alabama to Nashville. We got up Wednesday morning, December 5, and discovered the plastic cover over the refrigerator vent was hanging by one corner. Yesterday afternoon, I drove under an overhanging oak branch on one of the small-town main streets that I thought was just twigs, but turned out to be fairly solid. It made a mark all along the top of the trailer and apparently hooked under the vent cover and destroyed it. I tied it on as best I could and headed up the road hoping to find a repair shop. Our route took...

Sep 27, 2005 - Goosepond Colony at Scottsboro, AL

On Sunday, Sept. 25 we pulled away from Tuscaloosa and headed north towards our destination of Refro Valley, KY. We had signed on to this Newmar Kountry Klub tour several months ago, knowing that the Razorbacks had an open date and then a "patsy" game in Little Rock the next week. So we figured we could miss one game for this two week adventure ending with a great bluegrass festival at Renfro Valley. Raymond and Glenda Arey traveled with us, choosing to "follow our white car" the whole way. Raymond has health problems, so we were happy to...
