Added a little history to the WI Visitors tour of East TN. We started with a early Saturday breakfast at Rocky Top General Store (nice country place with great folks). Seven started the ride, two returned home after breakfast, and two more dropped out before Greenville. They were to take a Yamaha Venture to Curt for a tire swap. :-) That left three of us for the tour of the Greenville Historic Jail (lucky they did not put us in it), and the Andrew Johnson Museum. The museum has a nice little slide show about his life, his original Tailor Shop contained inside the museum, plus a couple houses to torur. It is an interesting stop.  Took a quick break at the Bible Covered Bridge on the way home. Some of my favorite cruising roads are on this ride - as ypou know Green County is not as mountainous as Sevier County - so, nice farm land views, some great roads also (Hwy 349 and part of 340 are a couple with some nice curves).

I love history too. When I get to watch TV it is history channel or speed channel. Looks like a very fun ride. Great pics. Which reminds me I need to see about getting more pics open for you. :) I love the old Jail. I will have to take that ride one day to visit.

More ride pictures -- there might be some more worth posting, but too many becomes boring.

I post nearly all of them on the CRGR Photo Web Site, doubt anyone looks at all.

Maybe, 5 more - then I will select the best and not bore everyone too much. Paul
