bad signOn the way here, the two RV Gypsies blew a tire on their big RV. The noise was a very loud bang, and it surprised the two RV Gypsies. It was the outside tire on the back, driver's side of the RV. The inside tire was fine, so that surviving tire allowed the two RV Gypsies to drive two more hours to the campground. The roads were just not suitable for the two RV Gypsies to pull over anyplace, plus it was a Sunday and all repair places were closed anyway. So on Monday, Lee Duquette drove the RV in for a new tire in Sevierville, which is not far from Pigeon Forge. Cost was $700. It will soon be time to replace the other 5 tires on the RV, but it is just too costly to replace them all at this time.

This was a small but nice campground with only two roads (paved) which circled around so each road was one-way. All sites were back-in sites. TV cable had only a few stations, and most did not come in very well. It is advertised as the "Sweetest Lil' Campground in the Smokies". Sites were gravel. Wi-Fi available at sites but not for streaming Netflex, Hulu and Games. Quiet time is 11 P.M. to 7 A.M. No washing RVs or cars. Most standard campground rules applied, but this park requires everyone to sign a special waiver regarding damage as the park is privately owned.

Below: This bronze statue at 125 Court Avenue in Sevierville, Tennessee portrays Dolly Parton as a young woman, perched on a rock while casually strumming her guitar. Sculptor Jim Gray chose to show the star beaming her signature smile, likely dreaming about the renown that she later brought to her hometown. The statue debuted in 1987, shortly after Dollywood opened nearby.
