We did hit a lot of road construction near Nashville. The highway was even closed a few miles near there. So we took a bit of a detour through Nashville and found a great restaurant to get some dinner at---Peg Leg Porker
Our 7 hour drive from St. Louis to Knoxville ended up being more like 9 hours with the detour and dinner. But we still arrived with an hour of daylight so we went straight to 5 houses they wanted to check out. They have a really neat system where you call a number on the rental sign, you're given a code, then you put that code into the lock box and presto---out comes a key. We were beginning to think we'd have to continue looking the next day. None of the first 4 they thought they were interested in turned out to be acceptable to them. 5th one was the charm. Great layout for their furniture, great privacy fence for the pup, beautiful country area,... .
It was a beautiful evening, so we decided to walk around. Here is the courthouse.

Next morning we headed off to find Mama's. It won the biscuit contest a few days before and Tim and FAith were anxious to check out their biscuits.
