Where I stayed

Today, we tried to go on a motor trail!  My kind of trail J  Sadly, the trail is closed til Saturday, so we will try again before we leave.  From there we did wander around Main Street Gatlinberg and did some shopping.  Way to many shops to see in a day, but lots of neat stores, selling anything you can imagine.  Once the feet gave out on the walking, we did stop to tour the Star Cars Museum.  Quite fun!  Of course, they had the General Lee from the Dukes.  The Bandit car from Smokey and the Bandit, was one of Cliff’s favorites.  Mine had to be Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds.  Many other cars there as well.  Today we are still planning to get to Clingmans Dome, and tomorrow should be Cade’s Cove.  Do to the amount of crazy fun roads, we think we are going to skip the Tail of the Dragon.  It’s a bit out of the way, and we don’t see how it could be any more impressive than the roads we are on so far. 

One note I forgot to mention yesterday….  This is how gps gets people in trouble.  When heading for Pigeon Forge, the gps had us exit the interstate, one exit before what I would have expected.  We travel just a we bit down the road and it tries to have us take a turn up a driveway.  Logically, we skip it and travel down the road.  We did a little site seeing and headed back for the interstate.  We later realized, the gps wanted us to go up the mountain and drive the Appalachian Trail.  Wouldn’t that have been good on the news?  Two Wisconsin residents had to be rescued from firebird sitting atop Mt. Smokey as their gps guided them there.
