Tennessee - Winding Roads

Almost the final day in Tennessee, we've covered approximately 380 miles in this state, tomorrow we cross into Mississippi  & leave behind the back country roads.

We're camped next to the Tennessee river in a place called The Historic Botel, the bar overlooks the river & is heaving with locals, a lot on bikes but a fair few in pickups as normal for this state.

we've just had catfish & shrimps for dinner, very cool...

We've had a fair few river crossings today, no major hiccups along the way though plus we've replaced the 14mm hex socket that I've misplaced somewhere, this is the tool to take my front wheel out so pretty important if I get a puncture!

On the whole it's been a good day, all in the sunshine, we've seen snakes, squirrels, a dead armadillo, loads of vultures & birds of prey & we're now sat drinking cold beer with tents pitched! 
Geoff managed to do some stunts on a boring bit of road so came past me stood up with one leg up in the air... Happy days... 

Much more off road today including getting to watch a guy in an old Chevrolet pickup go up a river bed to his favourite fishing spot, we did the tame thing & headed straight across!

We also went through an area which was an off-road playground, loads of 4x4, quads & dirt bikes, it looked well worth a re-visit one day...

Another cool day in the land of the free!! Even though they have shops called Piggly Wiggly!!!
