        ... for names, dates, and other facts, I found, and continue to find, what's truly important - living, breathing, loving, kind, FAMILY.

        JOHN: This trip exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I told myself before we left that I would not leave home counting the days until we returned, that everyone smiles in the same language so relax and enjoy the experience, what a concept right? So once the HELL of getting over ...

We made a quick stop at Meigs Falls at the point where Meigs Creek flows into Little River. After this, we continued through Gatlinburg to Cosby and got on the ...

        As we sit down to write this blog the sun has come out. Not the same when we left this morning, low clouds and rain. Well a couple days ago we were told by a lovely couple of a covered bridge in Madison county which they had seen that morning, they said this was the bridge used in the famous film. "The Bridges of Madison County" so we had to go, having been given ...
