When I leave my marina, I'm about 3 miles from the SW corner of the Great Smoky Mountain s Nat'l Park on the Little TN River and if I turn right out of my slip, I go about 2 miles and enter the Cherokee Nat'l Forest. Should be about 70* tomorrow and we'll be cruising out there. I love this place! Ben

I'm leaving Eddyville in Kentucky tomorrow first light, delivering a Defever 44 to New Orleans. Might see some TF people on the trip south? Give me a shout if you are on the route. I'm on Ella Grace.

Like this? View from TVA’s Raccoon Mtn Pumped Storage Project overlooking the “Grand Canyon” of the Tennessee a few weeks ago.

Wifey B: Not much color. Is it all gone? We were there too early for it.

The color at upper and mid elevations came and went quickly this year . . . about a week after the photo. Unfortunately, we were in Canada at the time and missed it. Even without color though, the gorge is gorgeous.

Two days into our trip and did 115 miles yesterday and 101 miles today. The Tennessee river is ripping from the Pickwick lock down about 40 miles. Speed dropped to about 6.5 mph for a while there. We had been averaging in 8.5 mph before that. Last night we were at at Cuba Landing and tonight at the Grand Marina near Iuca. Weather was really nice until this afternoon but the wind picked up and we have a storm front coming through tonight. 100% chance of rain tonight and tomorrow til noon. Then it's getting COLD. No more flybridge steering for a while.
