Then on to Fort Donelson National Battlefield where one of the first important battles of the Civil War was fought February 11 to 16, 1862. Into the visitors center…


We began our visit with a 15 minute film that explained why this location was so important…



It was considered the Gateway to the Heart of The South. You can read all about Fort Donelson by clicking their official website link…

Down to the Cumberland River where the primary battle of Fort Donelson took place…








Then on to VFW Post #4895 in Clarksville…

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are forecast for the next two days. Plus Mary continues to struggle with an assortment of pains and is now talking about seeking a professional massage to find relief. We’ll also take in some of the local sights…so I guessing we will be here 2-3 days.

Enjoying interesting places and museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
