We ended our 2015 local camping season at Anchor Down RV Resort in Dandridge, TN. As we were leaving, the friendly owners and staff joked that opening day was only a couple months away. They insisted that we return and last week we took them up on their offer.

It was a chilly but, beautiful, opening weekend at the park and there only a few other campers around. We counted a total of 4 RV's on the lower level including us and handful of others on the upper level. We wanted relax and enjoy the views, but also give our new Ford F-350 Platinum a test run with the Airstream in tow. More on that later. Anchor Down is a wonderful place to visit and kick off another exciting year of travel.

For our first getaway in 2016, we picked Site #41. It's our favorite site and the same one we had in the fall. It includes a beautiful stone fireplace overlooking nearby Douglas Lake with spectacular views of the Great Smoky Mountains. The sunsets from Site 41 never disappoint.

Thanks Anchor Down for a great start to 2016. See you on closing weekend in the fall.
