    No Problems at Dollywood, TN

    Ok, Back from vacation. Had a great time. Visited Knoxville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas.
    Me and the wife made the entire trip on our Goldwing. Loved the scenic mountain roads....
    I had wondered about Dollywood but found no problems with carry there. No signs that I could see anywhere against it - no metal detectors at the entrance.

    Thanks for the heads up, I will be taking the family out to that area in a few weeks. It is good to know carry will not be a problem at DollyWood.

    Oh Yeah, as good as the trip was - it was still good to be back home.

    Oh, on a hike up to see Laural Falls (1.3 miles one way - all uphill) we saw a young bear about 40 yards off trail foraging for food. Riding the Goldwing on other back mountain roads we saw deer, more bears and other wildlife. Really neat.

    Can't beat the two wheels - until that is a T-storm decides to dump gallons on you!

    Glad you enjoyed it - so much to see, hear and smell when biking. Even so - nothing like home for the final sanctuary

    I am jealous. I bet it was a wonderful trip on two wheels. Glad all went well and your home safe.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I hiked Laurel Falls and several others while I was down there 2 years ago. Dollywood was way better than I expected too.

    country85,
    Just watch out for the horrible, horrible traffic in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, especially on weekends and evening hours. Get a map and find the back roads, or you'll be stuck for a long, long time.

    There used to be an excellent military museum there, and it's gone.

    I didn't ride the actual Dragon but plenty of other twisty, hilly roads. On the ride back home for the first couple hours we avoided interstate and took back roads from Gatlinburg West to I75 then Interstate the rest of the way.
