A friend of mine and I were going to camp along the Natchez Trace after leaving Amazon but my family wanted me to spend some time with them so I was delayed. I thought about heading to the beach but decided it might be fun to take is slow and camp at the 3 free campsites on the Natchez Trace. I got completely excited about camping on the Natchez Trace when Renee and I, on one of our day adventures, stopped by the northern free campground at Merriweather Lewis site. It was extremely nice and I was excited to stay a night there and the other campgrounds.
So, the day I left Renee it was quite cold... a high in the mid 30s. I've gotten to the point where I don't feel a need to rush, ride in cold and yucky weather. Not that I'm a fair weather rider, I just don't have any place that important to get to. I've done the below freezing temps, wind, snow, torrential rain... not anything new for me... I just don't feel the need to prove anything. As a woman I have ridden thru just as much bad weather, crappy roads as any man so I have no doubts in my abilities as a rider.
Anywhos... I decided I would stay a night at the Merriweather Lewis campground. This campground is nicely paved, most sites are pull thru and the bathrooms are heated... I was lucky enough to find an outlet for TicTac so I could have heat. With a high in the 30s and lows dropping into the low 20s it was nice to live it up not really boondocking.
