Tom Johnson Camping Center…

Do you camp or glamp?  I started camping with my parents when I was a wee young lassie.  And I do mean camp.  Tents and all.

Now we glamp.  An RV the size of my apartment is not camping … that is glamping.  About 16ish years ago, my parents bought their first motorhome.  A brown bomber from the 1970s.  The motorhome came from Tom Johnson Camping Center located in Marion, NC.  They were hooked and have since used them for every other RV purchase since the brown bomber.

Tom Johnson Camping Center throws a BBQ rally every September to thank his customers.  We have gone the past 16 years.  I have missed a few here and there, but decided to unplug this past weekend and head to the mountains with them.  We had a blast and here are some pictures to prove it. 🙂

On the way up. Toby in my lap.

Overlooking the campground. It was a packed house!

Home for the weekend

Early morning fog burning off as the sun rose. Mom & I decided to do some power walking.

Me & Barney. He cracks me up! Staple of the weekend!

We wore matching t-shirts! 🙂

Hanging in the rain!

Ah. Nice end to a great weekend!
Thanks Tom Johnson! 🙂

Foodie Friday {Greek Chicken Pitas}…

Happy Happy Friday!! 🙂

The DNC came to a close last night, and I must say, I am so proud of our Queen City.  She did an amazing job playing hostess with the mostess.

Bigger news, I am taking today off! 🙂  Well half a day really; the boss gave me permission. 😉

I am heading to the Tom Johnson Camping Center Rally with my parents and our 3 doggies.  It is a little mountain and a lot of relaxing.  I will be practicing my crocheting {yes I decided to take this up} and rereading a few books. 🙂

I will be blogging about it on Monday.  😉 As a teaser, this is my favorite spot to chill all weekend long!  See me back there in my camping chair. 😉

Now, on to Foodie Friday!
