    spetrola...

    No, it is illegal to carry in a national forest in Tennessee...not by national law, but by state law. As I understand it, most other states allow carry in national forests, but Tennessee does not.

    Thanks for the info everyone!

    Actually we have gone and come back already now.

    SMKW is a great place. I got to handle some surprisingly well made toys... and some surprisingly crappy ones too. Nothing like being able to actually handle something before you buy. On a side note, it is rather depressing how crappy the newer Gerber multitools are. Even the usa made ones, were pretty nasty. The knife blade was sharp, but very rough and poorly ground, with a badly rolled edge.

    Also disappointing was that the veterans museum was closed all week while we were there. :(

    There is a new place called wonderworks. (the amusement park for the mind) Now that was fun, the wife and I spent 5 hours in there.

    The ripleys museum was good.

    The comedy barn was fun as well.

    What I did not like at all were the simulated rides. The seats are made for children, or anorexic pygmies. Not to mention they were so rough that I came away with bruises and a pulled muscle in my right arm. (from holding on) No wonder they have seatbelts. YUK! Keep in mind I do some mild off roading, and have bounced a vehicle so hard as to knock the dome light out of the roof and that was not nearly as rough as those simulated rides. Large people, STAY AWAY!

    Cades cove a few miles away was ok, but I can honesly say that the woods around here as just as pretty, with just about as many deer. (no bears though) On another side note, my inlaws have quite a bit of land, but it is 90% steep hills and rocks. There is so much game up that way, my father inlaw has been known to go deer hunting from the back bedroom window. Just open the door and sit there for an hour or two, till something walks by. His wife made him stop though. LOL! Now he has to go all the way out onto the porch if he wants to go hunting.

    The Sevierville indoor range was pretty nice as well. I got my wife to blast through a box or two of ammo with me and she enjoyed herself. Unfortunately the range section is not air conditioned and it was very hot that day so we didn't stay as long as I would have liked. She is slowly developing a taste for shooting. I am hoping that eventually I can get her excited about going to the air conditioned range about 20 minutes from her office.


    All things considered TN was fun, but all in all I am glad to be home.
    Well... all except the having to go back to work thing.

    Thanks everyone for helping me find good places to visit, and stay 100% legal.
