An Afternoon With Fellow Travelers
One of the great blessings of the RV lifestyle is the wonderful people you meet along the way. Last January, while we were in lower Alabama at the Escapees Rainbow Plantation, we met Darrell and Judy Patterson. They, like ourselves, are full-time RVers. As it turns out, they have children (and grandchildren) in the Nashville area. They are parked at Cedars of Lebanon State Park this week to visit with family.
We drove to the park this afternoon to see these fine folks and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. This was a beautiful day in middle Tennessee--a perfect day to sit outside and visit with friends. I guess this was like one of what Darrell likes to call a “chat and chew”. We chatted for a while then Judy brought out a nice tray of cheeses, crackers, and grapes. As we enjoyed these delicacies we swapped RVing stories and future plans. I guess you could say we “chewed the fat” (a good old southern expression) for the better part of the afternoon. Time wore on far too quickly and we had to say our good-byes. But, as they are heading south and we are too, I’m sure our paths will cross again very soon. Thanks, Darrell and Judy, for a wonderful afternoon.
If you have time, check out Darrell’s website at Wandering America. It’s top notch.
