Tennessee to North Carolina

 Those Gas Stations from the past:

Report of Wednesday’s ride:


 We left the park in Jackson Tennessee around 9:30, a little late. The roads looked like this:


We crossed the Tennessee River and the rain started again

When the rain started it lasted until Nashville. I thought of Woody and Anna Mae (Up in NY), the only people I know who played and sang on the “Opry Stage”.

This was the Sky line and buildings of Nashville:

The rains cleared and the country turned to mountains,

The landscape in Tennessee changes from rolling hills to mountains along I-40 After Nashville comes some mountains.

Then hills again but it is tree lined and you only get a glance of farming country with the short tree breaks.


Then to Mountains until the NC state line. Today was a short day; we stopped at the Bean Pot Campground in Crossville.  We have over 100 miles left in Tennessee back to Knoxville where we turned North a few weeks ago.

I have always heard that Nashville was a fun place to visit. My parents are heading to Tennessee some time this month but can’t remember the destination. It’s a place I never heard of.
Your trip is almost over. Slow down and enjoy.
