This past Tuesday found us heading toward Guntersville, AL. We are currently at Blue Herron RV Resort.
We have been in NE Atlanta assisting Carolyn's BIL's family with his illness and lending a hand where needed. Jimmy passed on Aug 23d after a battle with Renal Cancer for over a year. He faced it headon and fought the battle at every turn. He didn't let it interfer with his work and kept giving wisdom and kind words to the end. He will be missed.
While in the area we stayed initially at FT Yargo State Park. We were going week to week due to the situation (they have a 14 day limit, but due to the circumstances allowed us to stay over that time). With our week to week extensions the Labor Day weekend was coming up and they were full so we checked out on Friday before. It was a beautiful place and was only a 20 minute drive to the house.
On the 31st we moved to Jones RV Park in Norcross, GA. It was just 5 miles further, but going in the other direction, requiring us to get on I85 and heavy traffic. It has 2/3ds of the park as long term (more than a month). Some looked like they had been there years. A mile away was a heavy ethnic neighborhood with store signs in foreign lanquages. It was $30/night or $165 per week. There is not a lot to choose from in the area and it filled a need. Not the place that invited you to sit outside. The sites were not very large either. The second picture has a site between us and to the left is another site opening to our passenger side.
Blue Heron is a nice quiet owner owned lots, that for $143.10 a week (Good Sam Discount) you can not beat. Being owner owned lots, several are for sale and are unoccupied, giving a large amount of space around you. 50 amp, FHU for the price isn't to bad.
Life is pretty Good.
