Current Location: Nashville KOA, Nashville, Tennessee
We packed up and left the Horse Park about 8:00 AM (Eastern time) this morning and made it back to Nashville around 1:00 PM (Central time) this afternoon. We had a bit of traffic just north of Nashville in a construction zone that added about 30 minutes to the trip. We also had to stop to put DEF in the truck at a truck stop which added a little extra time, as well.
Once we were back, we pulled back into our regular site, leveled the rig, put out slides, hooked up the power and turned on the air conditioners. We put Callie inside and headed out to go get some lunch at the nearby Cracker Barrel. We figured it would take a bit to get the rig cooled off as it was 95 degrees here when we arrived.
While we were at Cracker Barrel, we called up Nashville Van and Car Rental and arranged for Malcolm to be picked up at the campground to go rent a car for the next two weeks. They promised to come by in an hour, which worked well for finishing lunch and finishing up hooking up the trailer. Malcolm had just gotten done when the owner of the rental place pulled up. They rode back to the rental place and Malcolm came back with a Chevy Malibu.
The rental place is really nice. The rate for the car was $189 a week which they pro-rated to $27 a day since we have it a week and five days. Total rental was about $350. Malcolm checked Enterprise up the street and they wanted more than that for a week (would have been about $900 for the same period of time). We think we will stay with this place since they don’t raise their rates during peak rental periods like the major rental places do.
After getting back with the car, Malcolm decided to install our new ceiling fan in place of the old one. We had picked up a new Hunter ceiling fan while we were in Kentucky since Lowes had a sale on them (20% off) over the weekend. You can see details of the install in a separate How-To post.
This evening we had dessert at DQ over at Opry Mills mall, then ate dinner at Rainforest Cafe. Every once in a while, you just have to do things in a different order.
