We have reservations on 4th row under name (Medley).

It's $14.95 Sevier County Rate + Tax comes out around $17.

I don't know about Not Sevier Rate. Call 865 774 7777 for prices and reservations.

Ask to be seated near Medley Group if you desire.

Make it a XMAS Get Together.

PS: It's also a Dinner Theater (costs more, I think $10 more,  and you need to arrive earlier -- call 865 774  7777)

PS: They also have a Soul of Motown show (on TUE it is at 5PM -- they sort of alternate days when Hit Parade and Motown change times -- call 865 774 777 for Info).

COOL  ---  Aren't they a HONDA Dealer. Buddy bought a Goldwing there (pretty good deal)?

Plus you close to the Ice Cream Parlor at Mayfield  (if you can afford it -- they went up on their cones some time ago).   :pop

A seasonal safety message:

- - DRUNK DRIVING WARNING - -

As we get to the holidays it's important to remember that the roads will be extra hazardous.  Here's a fellow motorcyclist's story:

"I know we bike owners are responsible, but this is a warning to be careful about drunk driving as we are getting close to Christmas.
A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends after work. One thing lead to another and I had a few too many pints and then topped it off with a couple of jaegerbombs. Not a good idea. Knowing full well I was over the limit, I did something Iíve never done before...
I left my bike in town and took a taxi home. Sure enough, I passed a police checkpoint where they were pulling over drivers and performing breathalizer tests. Because I was in a taxi they just waved it past. I arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise..
I've never driven a taxi before and I am not even sure where I got it from."

Thanks. I always said if I left I wanted to go back to equipment and had been eyeing this place from time to time and I noticed a month ago they had an opening.I won't have near the responsibilities,more money,and benefits,plus its only 10 miles farther each way.

The trip home was shortened because of the amount of time we spent at McAdoo. Had planned to include Devil Triangle and a route via Coal Hill Rd, to Hwy 27, to Clax gap, to Hwy 95, to Hwy 70, to Pellissippi to home.

Skipped Devil Triangle after doing Walden Ridge (gravel) and when we got to Oliver Springs, we stopped at HARDEE'S for a break.

Jackie needed a break as he had a slow speed spill on a gravel, steep, switchback on Walden Ridge. After the break we decided to just head home as it was like 2:15PM. Went via Oak Ridge, Pellissippi, etc.

PICTURE Story

Took a back way out of Clinton from McAdoo to miss downtown. Headed for Sulphur Spring Road.

Sulphur Spring Rd is GOOD. Takes you to Johnson Gap (a wooden RR Bridge Overpass) and then to Dutch Valley Rd.

Reached Dutch Valley and headed for Walden Ridge (gravel about 6 miles over a MTN). Discussed with Jackie if he wanted to do it, might be able to do Devil Triangle also, but time was getting late. We did Walden Ridge or it did Jackie. :-( Gravel varied from packed to loose on surface -- a good deal was loose, not deep just loose on surface).

Turned here to head over the Mtn (Walden Ridge Rd). That be the Mtn ahead.

First part is paved --- turns to gravel on the switchback ahead. (take it easy there as some gravel on the pavement)

Good view on south slope -- Bull Run Steam Plant (see the stack).

Started down the north side of the MTN here.

I had made it around a second switchback (see road above) and was waiting to see if Jackie was behind me. He did not show up in a reasonable time, so I turned back. He lost it on the switchback above the one where I stopped. Never know for sure what happened when it happens - looked like he cut it tight, then got headed wide and hit front brake to keep from going over the cliff (front wheel slid out).

Anyway, I got back and good thing was he was standing up, bad part was bike was laying down (no major damage, a few scratches). We stood it up and nursed it down the switchback a bit so he could get on it. Then I took this picture and turned mine around and away we went.
Picture taken looking down the MTN just a bit down from where he landed. DANG good thing he did not go over the edge.

We reached Hwy 330 off of Walden Ridge Rd (it Jcts with hwy 330). We decided to skip Devil Triangle and head for Oliver Springs. Had our last break (coffee for both, burger for Jackie, Apple and orange for me).

Took a bypass off of Houston School House to Wildwood (getting close to home here).

Then from Wildwood, took another bypass to Hwy 411 for final run to Seymour.
