I checked out the Wears Valley Fall Fest!

October 14, 2016, I attended a gathering of local artisans on a picture perfect Wears Valley Day!  This festival happens every year, and parking was free!

All crafts were quality and I wish I had enough money to buy more!  Below are my pictures of the event, and the one item I was able to buy:

And my purchase of the day was from Michael Ogle and his collection of Native American made jewelry:

Our New Meetup Site for Area Gatherings!

I am pleased to announce our new Wears Valley / Cades Cove Meetup.com site where you can sign up for area events and meet new people!  Meetup.com is not a singles website.  It is a great way for local people to get out and try new things, for people who do not having bicycle partners to be able to ride with someone else, for RV’ers and other visitors looking to sample some of the local culture without going through the long ride, traffic and bother of going to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg.

Product Review: Beyond Black Tire Pro Dressing

I got to talk to the fine people hosting the R and B Car Care booth when I attended the Pigeon Forge Rod Run on September 16, 2016.  They came all the way from Louisville KY, and took the time to let me run some business questions past them.  At the same time, I purchased their “Beyond Black” product, and wanted to share some pictures and results.

I don’t like super gloss, which most tire preps seem to be.  This product seemed to be a little less gloss, but not quite matte either.   I bought this for my pickup truck, my RV and my Corvette.  The truck took the test first.  The before and after pictures are below.  The after picture, is after a 10 hour highway trip, no washing in between.
