Post from the Road

The photo is from my ridiculously brief visit to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  That side-trip was always a planned feature of the trip.  I had no idea the only way into that park (National Park!) is through an unbelievably congested commercial zone – much like Las Vegas.  It took 4 hours to drive in and out of the park.  I think it is unconscionable to make a trip through Dollywood and Gatlinburg the mandatory route to a National Park.  I guess I am the only one who feels this way…

I stayed in cabins (without bathrooms) on my way to North Carolina.  It was an adventure, but I decided to stay in hotels on the way back. I am on a fluffy bed in one as I write.  I will be home tomorrow.  Thank you Jesus.  I tried to post a photo, but I am close to out of data on my phone and the hotel wifi is dreadful.

i don’t think I can write about my family until I get back to my computer at home.

I cannot wait to get home.  As always, a trip away has made me appreciate how wonderful my life is.  I’ll be home tomorrow.

Its been a good trip, but very hard to drive 3000 miles alone.  Also difficult to see the impact of age on my family

ill write from home.

    Safe travel home. I understand about the commercialization. Glad you got to see the park even briefly.
