    His burger joint is going to be a few towns south of me, people are excited, but I don't get it personally. We have burger joints up the ying yang. Good ones too, Shake shack, 5 guys, and a host of other upscale burger joints.

    Always liked the guy anyway, wish him much success.

    Jeremy, he purchased what was Bobby Layman Chevrolet on West Broad. I like burgers, no appetite for Chevys though.

    Oh yea. My step daughter rode that ride.


    Joe,

    I spotted a great little drive through a park just off the main drive ( just to the left of the picture from that ride across the main drag ) but still in the City limits. It's a PARK with a COOL lookout during the drive that you can walk up on a little hill or stay down in the parking lot. Here's a few picks from that park right in the little city limits of Gatlinburg TN..

    That was one cool Park drive!! I loved it if you couldn't already tell.

    It's practically right in the MIDDLE of that little bowl of a city. <3 B)

    There were med. size deer laying beside the road in a few places also.

    It was about 5 miles long too I think.

    Don't forget to go to "Clingmans Dome" if you haven't already. I think it's just a short drive to get there. I'll check the web now. Yea, it's only 10 or 15+ miles away. Now there's a site/view to behold!
    It's not far at all!

    "Cade's Cove" is another cool drive. You might see some black bears on the trail in that Park. Deer also. There's a rest area midway through the drive. It was a great Park to see how the settlers in the past lived as a community amongst the wildlife if they didn't hunt and kill all that was around them. But I think there was plenty back then for everybody.

    I haven't been on that trail and doubt I will after reading about it. But who knows, right?

    Clingmans Dome has warning signs for that climb to the observation tower. " Not for the weak hearted" everywhere.

    Man my calves were on fire when I got to the tower's up ramp.

    I paused ON the ramp on the tower to rest. :# Young people were breezing on by...LOL. :D

    I proposed to my wife on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Va. at Burnt Tree Lookout at 3300 ft. above sea level. This is what I remember it looking like.

    And the fire destroyed a bunch.they had to basically rebuild that whole area behind the skylight. There was still a ton of burnt timber up there. They wouldn’t let you off the lift. Just return trip.
