J. Percy Priest Lake (TN) (July 5 - 8, 2010) Army Corp of Engineers Park

Of three Army Corp of Engineer Campgounds on this lake, we camped at Seven Points Campground.  Very nice park -- some great sites on the water though we were not.  Toured around Nashville close by; it was remarkable how they recovered from the great floods of May, 2010.   The Locals claim the Army Corp of Engineers let the dam open during the 3rd rain day because they were afraid the dam was going to break and did not want a repeat of  (New Orleans).   Opryland and beautiful Opry Mills Mall next door are closed until November of this year.  No sightseeing there. Did catch a Duke of Hazzard car at the Dukes of Hazzard Museum in Nashville. Most of the restaurants downtown were reopened after their flood damage however.  Spent a day on the beach and another day waiting for repairmen  for our water heater hose.  They do make campground calls for a price of course.  Went to nearby Smyrna to have dinner with an old co-worker from Pentastar Aviation.  Got offered a job hosting the campground for the rest of the summer.  Again in the 90's all three days we were there.
