Tennessee to Oklahoma – A Very Long Day


We started our day in Sevierville, TN, not far into Tennessee on I-40. We stayed on 40 for most of the day, making detours to avoid much of Nashville and Memphis. We did hit rush hour in Little Rock, but it wasn’t too bad.

We were on the road for almost twelve hours with short breaks for lunch and the call of nature. We wanted to make it to Oklahoma before stopping for the night.  


We stayed at the Applegate Cove COE campground last night. We arrived around 9:00, just before dark. A good thing, too. Trying to find a campsite and set up in the dark can be a challenge. 

The campground had 27 sites and I would guess that about half of them were filled. Most of the sites were shaded among mature trees. Another good reason we arrived before dark. 

Dinner was simple. I prepared wild salmon and snow peas. We ate in the red night lights with LED candles. It gives the picture an odd appearance.


We were both exhausted from the drive and called it a night not long after. We woke up late this morning and are back on the road again. About another 1000 miles to go until we reach Flagstaff, AZ.
