Hey all! I’m in beautiful Gatlinburg just outside of the Smoky Mountains. It’s a bit rainy, but it’s terrific, some beautiful scenery and the kids are having a blast, which is all I really care about. I don’t recommend driving from the Dallas area to Gatlinburg as that’s a bit of a haul (online, it said it would be 14 hours, but ended up being closer to 17 because of a 2 hour traffic delay outside of Nashville and then hitting rush hour traffic in Nashville and Knoxville).
Please populate the comments with good old fashioned Texas Tech news. I’ll do a thread each morning and let you all take it from there.
