I'm still over a week out and I can hardly contain my excitement. A week from tomorrow, the 19th, the better half and I are leaving on vacation. Our base camp will be Pigeon Forge. Other than checking into our condo(free, thank you in-laws) on Sunday night and checking out the following Saturday morning nothing is in concrete. The weather is looking iffy, but been wet before and I am sure we will be wet again. It's only 400 mile or so from our house to the condo, but we are going to take 2 days to get lost and wander through Kentucky and Tennessee to get there. If the current weather pattern holds then it may be a good thing to have that much time so we can monitor the radar and wait/re route to dodge pop ups. Then 2-3 days to wind our way home if we still have money and the desire to explore. If the weather looks too nasty we have done the trip a few times straight through on the super slab so that is an option if required, although I hope not. Too much too see and too many awesome 2 lanes to explore.

That's sort of like the Ozark trip we just returned from. Home based at Lake of the Ozarks and wandered around the area. Makes a very relaxing time, no got to be here, or got to go there. Y'all enjoy, one of these years I'm going to make it to the northeast area.

Don’t pay too much attention to the weather. The wife and I have been going to the area three or four times a year for the past 15 years. There will be a rain shower somewhere in the Smoky Mountains nearly everyday. Some days you’ll be the one getting wet, and other days it’ll be someone else.
