Monday, October 28, 2019 - Melton Hill Dam TVA Campground, Lenoir City, TN - 185.2 Miles, 910.2 Miles for the Trip

Last night was a bit cooler than the last couple of nights, dropping into the low 40's by morning. Since I had hooked up the truck yesterday, all I needed to do this morning was unhook the water & electric & put away the Anderson leveler.

Lots of traffic along I81 & I40. I arrived at the Melton Hill Dam TVA campground around 1:10, checked in and, with a little help from my neighbor, backed into site 10. Site 10 is a water & electric site (both 50 & 30 amp) for $29.50 per night with the Senior Card. It is a level concrete pad directly across from the park office. There are three tiered sections (I'm in the middle tier) that overlook the Milton Hill Reservoir.

Melton Hill Reservoir (Large 2.7MB)

I spent the afternoon reading - current book is Janet Evanovich's Look Alive Twenty-Five, then took the photos of the reservoir as the sun set.

Dinner was a chicken breast, potatoes & Anasazi beans cooked in my Instant Pot. Twenty minutes works well on a frozen chicken breast & potatoes, but not quite enough time for the dried beans. I'm learning - the Instant Pot is new.

Until Tomorrow -
