Yay the move is over....

the trek from TN to NC went well, besides the fact I have never driven anything bigger than a minivan and had to drive a 17' Uhaul through the Smoky Mountains. Still have tons of boxes to be unloaded but it feels good to be getting settled in a bit. What did I miss?

    .....They just disappeared for a few days with the feeble excuse that they were moving, but I know they just went to refill their water pistols with diluted custard.....

    Welcome back, LFA. Glad you're safe and sound.

    If you feel like it, tell me a little about the Smoky Mountains. I have all these romantic notions about them and I bet you could give me a dose of reality. What's it like driving through them? Did you see anything beautiful? Scary? Strange? Eerie? I've never been there.

    Just curious.

    All I have to say is WOW to the scenery. As we started to approach them we knew exactly why they are called the Smokey Mountains. I wish I had a camera with me to have taken photos cause it's pretty much indescibable but I'll try my best. Basically we rounded the corner on the interstate and thought something might have been on fire, but there wasn't. There were wispy bands of smoke all around the mountains, some much thicker. It honestly looked like someone could have photoshopped this scene, but it was so real and awesome. Awesome in the sense you can't comprehend it unless you see it. Other than that, once on the mountain I was a bit fearful as I've nbever driven a truck as big as I did and with as much weight in the back. It was slowgoing but it was better to take time than plummet off into a ravine or something. I was trying hard to take in the scenerey but also to not crash so I really can't remember much except for when we first passed that corner and saw the beauty of the Smokies. I'll try to find some photos on the net that look close to what I saw.

    Thanks you so much for that. It sounds breathtaking. I have a bunch of photos of the Smoky Mountains from Webshots that I love. I'd really like to see them in person some day.
