very busy day on tap .... nothing major, mostly just taking care of a considerable list of small things that need to be done .... the standard last minute panic hasn't set in but its most certainly on its way

several hours of rain has slowed our last minute packing so we aren't where we would like to be .... no problem, we should be able to catch up rather quickly in the morning .... we've made some changes in the way we store a few items for travel .... I'll try to get some pictures when the rain stops ...

good wishes appreciated .... as noted earlier, today's 420.2 mile drive that took us 8 hrs 17 min should be the longest of our current trip to South Dakota .... 2 fuel stops (one just to get enough to get out of high tax NC and the other to fill the tanks in Tennessee) along with one rest stop, plus who knows how many miles of crawling through construction areas all add to the time .... off and on rain for most of the day finally got serious about an hour before reached Soaring Eagle Campground located just west of Knoxville ... yep, unhooked and setup in a steady rain with thunder rolling in the distance .... and yep again, the rain slacked off shortly after we finished setting up .... we are enjoying having our 12 year old grandson traveling with us .... this is a first .... tomorrow's drive is slated to be much shorter and (thankfully) dryer
