We reluctantly pulled out of our beautiful site at Honeycomb Campground this morning around 10:30. We headed toward Tennessee and Hohenwald the city where our Oliver Legacy Elite II was born. It certainly doesn't seem like a year but in December we will have owned our Ollie for a year and that means we need to get a few things tweaked on our punch list. There really isn't a lot of "this needs to be fixed" kind of things. It's mostly those little things that need tweaking. We will also have the annual service done on it while there.
Our GPS lady, we haven't named her yet, directed us through the back roads just like we like. We are not interstate people unless necessary. She sure picked some lovely countryside!! The drive was beautiful but no place to really pull over for lunch. Finally, she directed us to turn right in 4 miles and when we did we discovered we were on the Natchez Trace!! We both looked at each other and just smiled!!! We would travel fifteen miles on the Natchez to get to Hohenwald.

After lunch we pulled ourselves away and went to the area where Meriwether Lewis is buried. He was the leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It was at the Grinder House that Lewis died from two gunshot wounds. The probable cause was suicide. He was only 35 years old.
A monument was erected and the dust of Meriwether Lewis lies beneath it. The design is a broken column to signify a life cut short!!

Tomorrow we return to the mother ship and get tweaked!!!
