  6. Yeah, It's kinda juxtapositioned between Knoxville, Johnson City, Sevierville, Gatlinburg, etc.

    Oh ok I gotcha. That's pretty much the best part of the state. I wanted to move closer to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg but it's so much of a tourist attraction now it's about impossible to drive through there on the weekends. Rod runs has been getting bigger turn outs every year though.

  9. ......................Chestnut Hill is kinda off the beaten path and well away from the traffic mess of the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area, but you can be there in 35 minutes or so. It's midway between Dandridge and Newport.
