After spending five days at Land Between the Lakes, it was time to be on the move again. We ventured further east. Our first stop was Rock Island State Park, TN. We wanted to see the waterfalls the park had to offer and maybe enjoy some amenities. We snagged the last spot the park had for the weekend. We were lucky to get a spot. It was a Friday and the park had special events for the weekend. Before we set up camp, we explored the waterfalls. We had electricity, water, and Wi-Fi, shower, and laundry. We enjoyed every bit of it.

After Rock Island, we headed toward the Chattanooga area. We arrived at Prentice Cooper Wildlife Management Area, in the Signal Mountain region outside of Chattanooga. We explored the wildlife management area for free camping, but all the spots were blocked off.

We went back to the entrance of the park where we stopped and talked to a conservation agent. He said there was a hunt going on that weekend and camping in the park was not allowed. We could stay at the camping area at the entrance with the hunters. We did! It was a cold and rainy night.

The next day, we ventured into Chattanooga and visited the CVT warehouse. Thanks to Tom, we were able to get all the straps and buckles we needed to replace on our tent.

After Chattanooga, we headed toward Santeetlah Lake, NC. We had a good camp spot right next to the lake. It was really cold and really windy!

We drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a while and found a great camping spot off Victor Road. The problem was, no internet and we had to get some stuff done before the next day. The last spot we knew our hot spot worked was only about 2 miles away. We worked until evening and set up camp in the dark.

One of our highlights of the week was our driving tour of Little Switzerland, NC. We camped at a free site near Roseboro, NC.

Next, it was time for a different adventure. We decided to reserve a room with AirBNB at a place outside of Winston-Salem. It was our first time to use AirBNB. We wanted to get a ton of work done and be out of the elements for a few days.
