Tue & Wed at the Rally

Tuesday was the first day of the rally, and we spent the better part of the day watching folks roll in and hook up.  We met some of them and visited while the campground filled up with Tiffin coaches.

At 4:00pm, we attended the “Meet and Greet” where couples gathered to introduce themselves, and to get verbal information about the rally.  When all the discussion was over, we had a dinner with ‘finger foods’ that everybody brought to the gathering. 

On Wednesday, Patsy and I used the CRV to tour another couple of areas.  First, we went to a small town called Croker Creek, TN that advertised a couple of craft and tourist shops.  After that, we drove back on the Cherohala Skyway to take a turnoff that we skipped on our Monday tour.  It took us to a waterfall called “Bald River Falls”.  The following are pictures that we took on the drive.   The first are of Llamas with their little donkey buddy that we saw on a small farm on the way to Croker Creek:
