Silence in the Smokies

28 April 2006
Jacksonville, Florida

What perfect timing.

We timed out visit to the Great Smokey Mountains to coincide perfectly with the "Thunder in the Smokies" motorcycle rally.  We got out of there just in time.  Apparently they were expecting 60,000 bikes to roar into town this weekend.  We had enough of the "look at me" noise the few hours we were there.

Before leaving town we had to stop by the Wheels Through Time museum.  I made sure to have my batteries charged for this one!  If you can help me identify any of these, I'd appreciate it...  One of the guys wandering around there talking to folks said that there were only "American Made" vehicles in there so I don't imagine #35 is a Duccati.

This is really a neat place and definitely a "Do Not Miss" if you are in the area.

We didn't have much time to hang around the Smokies very long because we had to be in Jacksonville this evening in order to be within reasonable striking distance of Key West tomorrow (if we survive the night in this neighborhood).
