    Rocky Top

    May 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Today we traveled to Blountville, TN for an overnight stop at Rocky Top Campground. Easy drive and the campground is quiet and lovely.

  • Day2

    Knoxville, Tennessee

    March 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Bristol, Virginia. I mean Bristol, Tennessee. I mean Virginia. Okay, both.

    State Street is the boundary between two cities: Bristol, Virginia and Bristol, Tennessee. It runs right through their common business district which was where we had lunch today at a restaurant called 620 State.

    On down the road we stopped in Gray, Tennessee to view a Pliocene - epoch assemblage of fossils from 4.9 to 4.7 million years ago.

    It seems that back in May 2000 Tennesse was widening State Route 75. Geologists discovered rather interesting finds at the construction site and Governor Sundquist said, "Go around.! Go around!" (Those are my quotes but you get my drift.)

    Anyway, it turns out that the earth moving machines discovered a semicircular sinkhole in a pond environment that contained fossils of ancient plants and animals.

    I'm talking stuff you wouldn't see walking around Tennessee today.

    Alligators. Rhinos. Saber-Toothed Cats. And lots and lots of Tapirs. So many tapirs that experts have said it is the world's largest tapir fossil find.

    What the heck is a tapir you ask? Google it.

    Only 1% of the site has been explored. Future fossil recovery is projected for the next 100 years!!!!

    Staying in Knoxville tonight chilling out. Watched the end of Virginia Tech beating Liberty. Sandra will be happy.

    Skinny Indian - Kingsport, KY

    July 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Another roadside oddity found by Q. We stopped here and headed to the hotel, which was only a few miles away. Ironically, we ended up going to dinner right next door to the indian.

    There sure are a lot of tall statues along the highways and byways of America...Read more

    Giant Guitar - Bristol, TN

    July 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Bristol, Tennessee is a strange place. It is right next door to Bristol, Virginia. In face the state line is down State Street, which they both share.

    Bristol, Virginia is the official birthplace of country music. Bristol, Tennessee has this giant guitar... It was once a museum, but is now in disrepair. It may be a radio station now, but it looked abandoned to me.

    I took some pictures of it with our good camera, but can't find any of them. I could only find this one picture on my iPhone. Weird. Like the place.

    End of Day 23 - Kingsport, KY

    July 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Day 23 Miles: 505.1
    Total Miles: 5,853.6
    States: 22
    Countries: 2

    We added Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee to our list of states. We are on the verge of driving through half the states in the country! We are also about to break the 6,000 mile mark. At just over 500 miles, this was the second longest we have driven in a day.

    We stayed the night in Kingsport, Tennessee. I love their tag line, "Visit Kingsport, Tennessee. We've got stuff." I so wanted to find that on a shirt!!!

    We went out to eat and played UNO. We love UNO and have many different sets. This is the first time we played UNO Emoji. It isn't too different, but I love the Draw 4 emoji. You'll have to look through the gallery to see it.

    The Comfort in was clean and spacious. A great change from the crappy Clarion. Tomorrow is off to The Great Smoky Mountains and Nashville!
