Wednesday, March 27, 2013 (Day 51)–Selma, NC to Pigeon Forge, TN

I left Selma, NC about 9:00am.  I drove 380 miles to arrive at Pigeon Forge, TN at 5:00pm.  I am staying at Riveredge RV Park.  I am staying hitched so I decided to take the town trolley to find someplace to eat.  They have a very organized trolley system here.  There was a trolley stop in the RV park just a few steps from my trailer.

There are a lot of families in town enjoying spring break.  There are also 2000 teenagers in Gatlinburg attending the Tennessee FFA convention. 

The trolley driver recommended a restaurant called “Old Mill Restaurant”.  He said it was one of the best in town.  Well they were definitely popular.  They were running them in and out.  It was a little different.  Every dinner option was a full meal.  This is definitely one of the reasons that we all weigh too much and also waste too much.  I chose my meal and then they brought a cup of corn chowder, a side salad and four corn fritters.  Then the waiter brought my meal and two dinner rolls.  The portions were very generous.  Then the waiter brought a card with five choices for dessert.  I chose the chocolate cake to go.  Way too much food.  Almost every person left the restaurant with to go boxes.  Probably less than 50% of the food taken home will actually be eaten.  So food wasted and a lot of foam containers wasted.  This meal plan also pushes the total ticket prices up.

While I was waiting for the trolley back to the RV park I admired the lovely snow covered mountains.  Unfortunately I had left my good camera in the trailer so the following picture does not do it justice.
