Day one of the GS greenlee/smith) adventure began with the pick up and packing of our RV from cruise America-think of the movie "family vacation" and you'll get the picture. Big Willy took the helm at 6pm and we departed Raleigh with the other 20 thousand cars on 40-rain,thunder and lightning followed us most of the way to Knoxville where the skies really decided to open up. Fearful of tornadic activity we checked the ever trusty weather channel before parking at Walmart, yes a 24 hr-super center Walmart, for the evening. In case your wondering-people do shop at Walmart at 1am-one man was in ther with his 3 yr. old contemplating a trike purchase. We had a lovely spot beside a tree though we could hardly enjoy the view due to the torrent of rain. Unfortunately the RV is not completely waterproof and we had considerable leakage wetting bedding and stored clothing. We left our beloved Walmart at 5:30am and yes there were shoppers...go figure. So we are off to Kansas city after a fabulous breakfast at the famous Wiki Stop truck stop-zagat rating of-1. Until Kansas city this is GS signing off-you betcha.
