The Dragon's Tail on the TN-NC border is still open but space to lay your head
is scarce. All lodging in NC is closed by state order. Hotels and motels in TN
are still open but that could change on a whim. The TN side of the Cherohala
Skyway is open but only to the state line. Then you meet the knuckle-dragging
Graham County sheriff's department who will turn you back if you don't live in
that county. Those residents are still free to spread their germs anywhere they
please, but we can't go there. When this is over, we will not forget that.
I closed my campground yesterday, not because of any directive but because there
is zero traffic. We will be closed until the insanity is over, however long
I may be headed for Houston to assist my youngest within. the week.
He's a recently promoted casino supervisor and obviously, they're
closed down for the duration, however long that is. Unfortunately,
he's only been there for five months and Texas requires six months for
UI. He moved from Boston and is trying to get UI from them right now.
Using freecampsites website to track down remote places to camp on the
way down for a couple overnights. I don't do real long drives well
anymore, so break it into manageable chunks. Besides, being retired
now, there's no rush. <grin>
