Well this is it. The last day, the last night, & the last blog from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Tomorrow we hit the road for Florida, friends, & family. Everything is packed away & the check lists have been checked so we are ready. We took care of everything to leave Dollywood. Uniforms got turned in & all our IDs/name tags/parking permits so that our final paychecks would be released. We may have taken care of everything but Dollywood had other plans. They lost our ID badges but still release my paycheck while holding Mary's. Then they couldn't find our name tags. Nobody knew who to call or what to do. The incompetence made me home sick for the Post Office. We finally got our checks & bid adieu to Dollywood.
Today we got everything ready. Mary cleaned & put things away while I emptied our holding tanks. Mary took some of her plants to one of the ladies she had befriended. When she got their she smelled propane in the trailer & quickly got the windows opened. They shut off the gas & got the dogs out. The dogs had already started to show effects from the propane but bounced back right away. It was fortunate that Mary went there when she did because who knows what could have happened. Whether propane poisoning or explosion a disaster was avoided.
Tomorrow we will get up early & go out to breakfast. It will be our last trip to the plethora of pancake houses in Pigeon Forge. Then back to the RV park,hook up, & we are on the road. We plan to boondock one night & arrive in St Augustine on Monday. We will spend a few days there before moving on closer to "home" as in Largo FL. So I will say our last goodnight from our home in Pigeon Forge because....
Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary
