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.
The picture above is some “art” at a rest stop along the way.
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.
