Joe Wheeler State Park

We left Aqua Yacht Harbor early for our two day trip to Joe Wheeler State Park where the AGLCA is holding their fall rendezvous.  For us it's more of a social event since the conference covers the portion of the loop from there to Norfolk, VA.  Since we have completed most of it all ready it was fun seeing a lot of loopers we met along the way that we haven't seen for awhile. The trip to Joe Wheeler is up the Tennessee River and is a two day trip.  We left Aqua on the 10th of October and our first stop is Florence Alabama and the next day is only 20 miles, but we have to go through two locks.  We arrived at Joe Wheeler on the 11th and we will be leaving the 17th.  The rendezvous was great and everyone had a good time.  We met up with Jack and Patti, we first met when we were in Seabrook, TX.  They are starting their loop from Mobile this January.  We'll see them again when we get down there in a few weeks.  We have decided to take a side trip when we leave here and continue up the Tennessee to Chattanooga.
