Saturday my hubby and I decided to go letterboxing. We went to Dover TN which is where Fort Donelson National Battlefield is. We have both been there before but it had been several years. I wanted to get a National Park Passport so I could get it stamped at the battlefield. My parents bought one for my sister and me when we were younger and we went on a lot of road trips, but we lost it when we moved. So hubby and I bought another one. We got it stamped at the battlefield. We found one letterbox at the battlefield. Then we went to look for another one but it wasn’t there. We went to the Fort Donelson National Cemetery, which is part of the historical tour.
After that, we headed to Land Between The Lakes. (LBL) Hubby had gotten clues for several letterboxes at LBL. We stopped at the South Welcome Center in LBL and got our passport stamped. The guy that worked there was very nice and helpful! He headed us in the right direction. We got to the point where we were supposed to start looking for the first one at LBL. I stayed in the van because my hips have been bothering me and there was a hike to get to the letterbox. But we didn’t know it would take an HOUR! I was getting worried because there isn’t good cell phone service, but he eventually came back! LOL! Then we went to the next starting point and it had a hike too. So I waited again. He called me and told me he had taken the wrong trail! So he took over an hour on that one but didn’t find the letterbox.
All in all, the day was awesome. We had a picnic lunch, visited some really cool places, and got to spend quality time together! Here are some more pictures I took.
Saturday was awesome! But then Sunday morning hit. I got sick at my stomach at 3 am. NOT COOL! First time in a long time. My throat is still sore! I can hardly talk. But my amazing hubby has been taking care of me. He is so good! Thankfully I was just sick the one time. I’ve been taking it easy on my stomach, though.
On a lighter note, Thursday is my BIRTHDAY!!! YAY! I am so excited! I’m hoping my sister will drive up to our apartment for dinner, but I’m not sure if she will or not. My friend DiAnna, who has been helping me clean and pack, will be here! And I’m sure hubby has something planned. But he won’t tell me ANYTHING! (I’m ok with that!)
That’s all for now. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
