Day 5 – Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Back through the mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Made a pit stop in Eric Church's hometown.

This day was relatively carefree and relaxing... just a nice long windy adventure. Made some phone calls and took in the perfect weather. The nightcap with some great Southern hospitality made my day. The camp hosts let me in late to the park, offered me a great campsite, and made me dinner. We talked for hours. This made up for the man that aggressively wanted a tip to get directions to this fine South Carolina state park!

Flying down the mountain roads!

The mountain roads were conducive to these little shacks! I'd love to live in one, except the thought of a drunk driver might keep me up at night!

A little side trip to Eric Church's Stomping Grounds

I am not sure I would've survived the long days without the lemon drops on this trip!

Ending the day here with great conversation from the camp hosts at Lake Greenewood State Park. They brought me to there site and made me a southern dinner telling me the ways of the south. I listened for hours. So nice. Again the southern hospitality stereotype's hold true:)

Another great day!

Thanks for enjoying!
