    We car camped on Cynthia's property for the 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse. She sent us driving instructions to her place and checked in with us during the drive to make sure everything was going well. She even cautioned us about the traffic in Nashville and was very accommodating to our arrival time. It took us a couple of minutes to find the place, but her driving instructions were very helpful.

    When we arrived, she was setting up an outdoor fire-pit so we could make some s'mores if we wanted; she even had the supplies for us all ready to go. The "campground" was the backyard on her chicken farm. The terrain had a bit of an elevation gradient, but it wasn't an issue for our SUV. We would definitely recommend checking in with her if you have a RV or camper that might not be able to handle hilly terrain. She drove with us on her property and recommended some areas where we could set up, but we were free to camp anywhere on her property. Once we had selected a spot and had set up for the night, we walked over to the fire-pit area where Cynthia was preparing the fire. She had started the fire for us and had extra firewood which we were free to use. We spent the rest of the night staring at the amazing night sky and enjoying some delicious s'mores.

    Mornings on her farm are one of the most amazing and memorable part of the trip. The beautiful sunrise on a crisp clear morning with tiny dew drops covering everything from tree leaves to the blades of grass truly make you excited to start your day. This is coming from a night owl who absolutely struggles to get up on any typical day back home. We made some breakfast on our stove and she even gave us some eggs from her chicken coup to take our potato, ham, and bacon skillet to the next level. We used her outdoor water hose to get ready in the morning, and she had a porta-potty that we could use (it was the cleanest porta-potty I have used in my life).

    Overall it was an amazing trip with an amazing host. Oh, the eclipse was also pretty cool!
