Two active retirees, two bikes and an Airstream loose on the road

Westward ho ..through the Gap
Movin again. Old Timers weekend coming to the Cove, so we are heading north to the Cumberland Gap. Had a nice time talking with our neighbors but still got away early, for us. Groceries in Townsend. Once through Knoxville, the two lane highway 11W was running parallel to the escarpment through lovely farmland. Then left on 25E through some huge grades over a set of tall ridges. These would have been a tough slough with an Airstream on the old roads; hard to imagine how rugged the country was before the Wilderness Road. This is new country for us and we are anxious to get to the visitors center and start our own exploration.
