- November 10, 2018 Saturday-It’s a cold day starting out, but sunshine all the way. Slow traffic through Chicago will delay our arrival tonight when we stay south of Indianapols in Columbus Indiana.
November 11, 2018 Sunday-It was a nice ride into Pigeon Forge. We stopped along the way at the Golden Corral for lunch in London Kentucky. After checking into the hotel, we watched the Hatfield and Mc Coy Christmas Disaster show. A funny comedy dinner theater. The last stop for the night was the Comedy Barn with more racious comedy.
November 12, 2018 Monday-Rain all day, and sometimes heavy. We made the best driving through the Smoky Mountains even spotting turkey and a herd of elk. It’s a very scenic drive to Asheville. In Asheville we toured the Biltmore Estate. It’s all decorated for Christmas, every floor, every room. It’s just beautiful. Back in Pigeon Forge, it stopped raining and we went to see Christmas in Smokies. An all Christmas show it was one of the highlights of the trip.

November 14, 2018 Wednesday-It’s a cool day but no rain. We started the drive home but first stopping at the Buffalo trace Distillery. Fine Kentucky Bourbon, we toured the barrel house, the bottling line and watched the new barrels come in. Interesting tour ending with samples and a gift shop. Tonight we’ll saty in Indianapolis at the Drury Inn.
November 15, 2017 Thursday-Freezing rain in Indianapolis and some snow along the way slowed us down today. Only an hour late, we made it home safely and reflected fondly on our tour.
