RE: Cracker Barrell

I just left my weekly breakfast at the CB on Mallory Lane. You won’t find a much safer location. It’s in the middle of a nice suburban retail district. When I arrive at 7 am on Fridays I do at times see an RV or two in the rear lot. I’d call to ensure they allow it first, though, as Brentwood does tend to have restrictive laws. If not allowed there, try calling the Sam’s Club on Mallory Lane, which is in Franklin. I see RV’s there quite often. There is also a CB in Franklin on Franklin Commons Ct. if they allow overnight parking that would be a relatively safe spot, and is right off the highway. I’d avoid the one on Sidco Dr for an overnight.

RE: Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg in November?

Almost everything will be open, with the exception of outdoor water activities such as Dolly's water park. That's one of my favorite times to visit...after the leaf crowds have dispersed somewhat. Weekends are still very busy, but weekdays are more manageable than during the summer and early fall.

RE: SE TN trip Last week of March

If traveling straight from Chicago to Chattanooga, any reason not to go through Nashville? I think it’s longer to cut over to 75 but I understand if wanting to avoid Nashville and/or Monteagle. If you do get to Chattanooga, don’t miss the Aquarium.

RE: Excel Question - Not rv related

When in your pivot table, assuming you have created the table with at least one filter, if you put the cursor within the table, do you get a ribbon menu item above called PivotTable Analyze? If so, click on that, then on the left click the down arrow next to Options and you should have that available.

RE: US 72 from Memphis to Sevierville, TN

Sounds like a nice drive. 72 terminates near Chattanooga, so what would be your planned route from there? The interstates would be 24 to 75 to 40, but keeping with the non-interstate theme overall perhaps you could get through Chattanooga on I-24, then either take 75 up to Cleveland or US 64, and hop from Cleveland east on US 64 to get on 411 which will take you all the way to Sevierville, avoiding Knoxville. Some pretty country. Either way, if going through Chattanooga I’d recommend the interstate as both US 64 and 41 go through tunnels, and the 41 tunnel is only 12’6” I believe. Oh, and edited to add that you should stop at the Lodge Outlet in South Pittsburg, TN!

Sounds delicious!

RE: RV Motorhome or trailer ????

I seem to recall some COE campgrounds with a handful of pull in sites, so I could see it possibly mattering in those cases. But overall as long as you can fit your RV/Motorhome/Trailer/Tow Vehicle etc on the site and meet the requirements for number of camping units allowed, I don’t think it matters.

RE: TN in early June and early Sept

If things return to normal by June, there are two huge music festivals in middle TN to contend with. The CMA festival is in Nashville, and Bonaroo in Manchester. I believe CMA is scheduled for June 10-13 next year, and bonnaroo the following week. If you’re interested in either festival, would be good to plan to be here then. If not interested, don’t plan your trip to the Nashville area at that time as everything is packed and lodging/camping options are hard to come by.

RE: How to tow travel trailer with 2 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs

We towed a 33’ travel trailer with a 12 passenger Ford E350 with the V10 gas engine. Family of 7, plus two dogs. Should be enough payload capacity with a 1-ton van unless the trailer is excessively heavy. And plenty of room for everyone. In the Ford I’d avoid the 15 passenger because of the rear overhang. In the GM 3500 vans I don’t think that’s an issue as the wheelbase is longer...I could be wrong. They don’t make the E350 anymore so look at the used market.

RE: Pigeon forge

A friend of mine stayed at Up the Creek last year and he says it's now one of his favorite campgrounds. Seems quiet and secluded for PF, yet the trolley comes right into the campground. One thing to be aware of...I don't think it has bath houses, so you'll have to use your own facilities. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

RE: Nashville

so downtown is ONE SPOT to go and the BROADWAY is another. Downtown and Broadway are one and the same. Broadway is the main drag through downtown where many of the bars and restaurants are.

RE: Need tow vehicle - preferably under 10k

When I was towing a TT with 4 (then 5) kids, I had a 1-ton van. Ford E-350 with 6.8L V10. My trailer was 33’ long but the 12 passenger van was a very stable towing vehicle. Comfortable to drive, and plenty of room for the family to stretch out. Plus plenty of payload capacity. Did it have the image of a truck or SUV? Heck no. Lol. People joked that I was driving a church van or prison bus. But i loved that van. Plus, pull the seats out and you can move practically anything. Finally...they are relatively inexpensive in the used market.

RE: Burbman Crosses over to the Dark Side....

There was a time I would have given my eye teeth for a clean 8.1 Burb. I also had a 2001 2500 Burb at the time to carry my family of 6 and pull our TT, but I had the 6.0. It did a fine job, but when daughter #5 entered the family I ended up getting a 1ton van as our TV. Regardless, once you decide to list it, prepare for the calls/emails. Like the saying goes, “they don’t make em anymore”. Enjoy the truck!

RE: Bunkhouse trailer comparable to Jayco Eagle

Check out the Keystone Outback 301BQ. I believe they stopped making that floorplan after 2015 or thereabouts, but it’s a nice floorplan as the master bedroom is in the rear with a separate entrance, with a small quad bunk room in front. We camped in one for several years with 5 kids and it was great.
