Leaving Gatlinburg

{Summer Bucket List}

The open road…trees, interstate, highways, overpasses, tunnels, mountains, rivers, lakes and more. I went on a road trip to Gatlinburg awhile back and it was amazing. I didn’t drive but my dad did. There is so much to do on a road trip: play games, listen to music, watch movies, have DMCs (deep meaningful conversations), sleep or just ride.  I personally sleep or watch movies but what you do and where you go on the road is your choice. So just ride.
