I was a little concerned about today as we were in a zone of no cell service. I rely on that for my Google Map directions and to communicate with Janet during the day. It’s my safety blanket that she is ok and I get to the right spot to meet here. We did have wi-fi at Sarge’s campground so we start the directions while we were still there so once I dropped Janet back on the trail I could find my way to our spot.
With the lack of cell signal I decided it was too risky to do any exploring so I went straight to our meeting spot in the Grayson Highlands State Park. With the fall colors in full bloom it was a beautiful place to be. Also it is a very popular outdoor location which afforded me a lot of people watching time. One of the reasons that people come here to hike is a herd of wild horses.
I had to park a little ways from the trail head parking area to find a flat spot to park the RV. Without a cell signal there was no way to alert Janet to the change, but luckily she found us.
The park had campgrounds with water and electricity so we made the decision to stay here for the night. On our way to the campsite I saw one of the wild horses – a very pretty paint. A stroke of good luck was when we found we do have good signal at the campground. That will let Janet send me the needed directions for tomorrow. I plan on doing a little exploring in the town of Marion if everything goes as planned.
