Honeysuckle Meadows RV Campground in Sevierville, TN

We were very happy in Florida for the winter and not yet ready to venture north, but Lora found a lot for sale in a tiny home resort in Gatlinburg, TN.  These lots were moving fast and so we sprinted out of Florida and into the cold of Tennessee in the winter. About 50 miles…

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Mills River, NC

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Mills River, NC was a grand and beautiful facility. The taproom and restaurant were huge with an outside dog friendly section that included a smaller menu. The day we went, a Sunday, we got the last two seats at the bar. Lora stuck with the Pale Ale while I did…

BearWaters Brewing Company

Of the two IPAs they offered, our favorite was the Stiff Paddle. To be honest, the smell from the paper mill across the street was overwhelming and may have…
