August 23rd – day 111
We left Maryville before lunch and
headed North through Knoxville TN. We stopped briefly at Clinton
Walmart to get a few supplies and I saw Mr and Mrs Bates from the TV
series, Bringing up Bates (they have 19 kids, hence the reality
show). I scrambled for my cellphone to take a photo (from a distance)
but they were already leaving. Funny place to ...
Sunday morning, we broke camp and headed to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. After parking, we did a quick hike along the lower loop of Joyce Kilmer Memorial Loop Trail (#43). The forest is named for the poet Joyce Kilmer who died in combat during World War I. His famous poem “Trees” seemed so appropriate in this beautiful old-growth forest.

Our house is really nice and looks like it was a good choice for our group. Tomorrow we tackle the Rattler on our way to Hot Springs with a stop at the Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum.
