Default Gatlinburg, TN

Takin the family on a trip to the Smokies. Taking I-10 from Houston to Baton Rouge, LA then I-12 to a little north of Slidel, LA. Taking I-59 North up through Mississippi (Leatha's in Hattieburg is a must stop. Anyone want some sauce?) and through Alabama to Chattanooga, TN. Will be staying somewhere around Gattlinburg, TN for 10 days or so. If there is any good Q to be found along my route or in the Gattlinburg area I am taking suggestions. The cabin we rented has a smoker and a grill so I will be Q'in some of my own too, that is when I'm not in the hot tub !!

Nice plan, Rick. A cabin with a smoker and a grill. Sounds like heaven. Any golf nearby? I would be interested in details.

I think there are several cources in the area, but we have 7 people in the van + luggage. No room for my clubs. Plan on hiking, horseback riding, river rafting, and spending as much time as possible either in a hot tub or lounging on the porch doing nothing.

I hear they taste like chicken.

Go to Cades Cove. There's a good hike to a water fall there and there's lots of wildlife to be seen.

Including Tasty Bears.

Cades Cove, I think thats where we are supposed to do the trail ride. Hike sounds like a good one, I will put it on my list.

Do the Roaring Forks Motor Trail too. Take plenty of digital camera memory storage.

Clingman's Dome is an easy one in that you can drive most of the way. Top of the World Mod.
