Lake City, Tennessee and Norris Dam
July 5 and July 6, 2011
The two RV Gypsies stayed at Mountain Lake Marina and RV Resort in Lake City, TN. They had a very limited amount of TV stations, and no WI-FI except at the lodge. They did have a nice salt-water pool. The Rec hall was closed. Hey campgrounds - this is summer time - where's the amenities???? The trash bins were over-flowing and trash was all over the ground. Pigs must have camped there over the holiday week-end.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Norris Dam is a hydroelectric and flood control structure located on the Clinch River in Anderson County and Campbell County, Tennessee, USA. Its construction in the mid-1930s was the first major project for the Tennessee Valley Authority, which had been created in 1933 to bring economic development to the region and control the rampant flooding that had long plagued the Tennessee Valley. The dam was named in honor of Nebraska Senator George Norris (1861-1944), a longtime supporter of government-owned power in general, and supporter of TVA in particular."

Norris Dam is a straight concrete gravity-type dam. The dam is 1860 feet long and 265 feet high. Norris Lake, the largest reservoir on a tributary of the Tennessee River, has 33,840 acres of water surface and 809 miles of shoreline. The dam has a maximum generating capacity of 131,400 kilowatts.

Unfortunately Karen was feeling very ill, so they had to return to the RV. Lee and Alex then went to the store, and when they returned, they went to the pool for awhile. After awhile, Karen went to the pool too, but she still was not feeling very well. It rained on and off all evening so there was not much to do.

The next day, Karen was not feeling much better. She was still sleeping when Lee and Alex went to the pool. Then it rained really hard and the thunder was so loud it made everyone jump. So it was not a very exciting day.
