After being dropped off at the midway point on LBL, the Golden Pond Visitor Center being the safest place to unload our gear and re-mount it on our bikes, we rode the thirty miles from Hardin, Kentucky, to Dover, Tennessee. It was the same hilly as the day before! When we started on The Trace we were immediately faced with the hill in our favor; in terms, downhill for about 250 feet
Only two and a half miles to the campground, and hopefully only that one long hill standing in front of us. As we approached the campground we saw a police car directing traffic on the highway in front of where there had to be 8 or 9 firefighting vehicles, the whole nine yards! In the midst of all the chaos was a large motor home with a trailer full of go-carts attached. This was taking place in the parking lot of a restaurant just before the entrance to the campground
Today we checked in to our FIRST campground, albeit we opted for a cabin. And we might as well have been tenting given the bugs; the debris, that attaches itself to any body or thing and deposits itself inside the cabin; and the skunk which we found out later that the owner's mother feeds!, (really?, really.). Now we know what that bowl of food was for that was setting on the ground just outside our cabin!!! We hastily hung all of our bike bags on the clothes rod, high and away from those crawly bugs, put the laundry in and went next door for dinner. More catfish and dinner buffet! The sad remains of the motorhome was still in the parking lot.
