This morning we packed up, cleaned out our tanks and headed up the road to the Nashville area. Malcolm is going to work in the office here for a week before we head on up to Pennsylvania, then out west.
The park here is very scenic. It is an Army Corp of Engineers park and is situated right on Lake Percy Priest, a few miles east of Nashville. Malcolm looked through their reservation system earlier this year and found one spot available for almost an entire week. That was literally the only week-long opening available this summer, or at least through this week, since we’ll be traveling the rest of the summer.
We’re also going to try something a little different this trip. Instead of Malcolm renting a car, he is going to take the commuter train into town. It drops off about 4 blocks from his office and the local station here is about a 10 minute drive away (about 6 miles).
Both the change of venue and change of transportation method will save us quite a bit of money. The site here is $22 a night and a round trip on the train is $10. Compare that to a site at the KOA (where we usually stay) running about $75 a night and a rental car at nearly $40 a day (with fuel).
