In all honesty this was not one of my favorite mini golf places but it was alright. It just seemed weird and the theme was lacking. The course was okay but not very challenging. I think the last photo looks more like Paul Hogan than John Wayne but that's just my opinion.

I'm ready for our next adventure. :)

I haven't braved that course in years. My wife and I played it when it first opened and have been underwhelmed ever since.

Yeah, it's not the best. However, it is indoors (which is nice, right now) and it's not blacklight (which makes it a rarity).

Plus, it plays the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme while you golf. So it scores some points for that. :P

There are a lot of strange things in Sevier County....

Smoky Mountain Knife Works
01P1101708.JPG
Yes, it’s the world’s largest knife showplace!
03P1101713.JPG
It is a store, oh yes. But not just a store!
05P1101715.JPG
It’s also a museum sort of thing!
07P1101714.JPG
“Bottom floor: Kitchen, Gifts, Sharpening.”
09P1101716.JPG
The store has many confusing levels. In fact, this store is just confusing, period.
10P1101741.JPG
Upstairs is the National Knife Museum.
11P1101723.JPG
There’s also a “customer lounge.”
13P1101722.JPG
But don’t get excited. It’s really just more museum.
15P1101720.JPG
But this store isn’t just about knives! Anything that can kill or maim someone is welcome here!
19P1101727.JPG
Someone earlier in the thread requested a ninja weapons store update. Will this do?
21P1101725.JPG
Strangely, this sign is nowhere near any swords. Maybe it’s for sale.
23P1101731.JPG
There’s a pretty big sword. We were told by an employee that it’s “real,” whatever that means.
25P1101736.JPG
Yes, if weapons, taxidermy, and total batpoop craziness are your thing, you owe it to yourself to visit.
27P1101746.JPG
I’m not sure why I chose to photograph myself with this stuffed bear. It’s almost the least interesting thing in here.
29P1101738.JPG
Oh yes, there are “fantasy” knives, as well.
31P1101748.JPG
Knives for pedophiles? Sure, why not?
33P1101753.JPG
Place needs mini golf.
35P1101754.JPG
“All artifacts must be purchased in this section.” Crap, now I wish I hadn’t come in here. I don’t need all this stuff.
37P1101760.JPG
I just don’t even know anymore. You figure it out.
39P1101769.JPG
Yes, buy a knife for a soldier. Or, better yet, a gun. (Or pornography.)
41P1101774.JPG
These guys apparently play and sing. I hope, about knives. I don’t really know though, because it was broken.
43P1101775.JPG
This gun is not a toy. It’s just located in “Toyland.” Got it? Good, I’m glad we cleared that up.
45P1101781.JPG
Accept no substitute.
47P1101798.JPG
Thus endeth the GREATEST UPDATE EVER.

You may have mentioned this before, but did y'all whitewater raft during your trip?

If you go back, do the Ocoee River, NOT the any of the Pigeon Forge rivers.

Well, we're not really on a trip. We live here. But no, we haven't done any of the whitewater rafting. First of all, there's not really any close to the main tourist areas. But, more importantly, Misty isn't particularly interested in doing it, due to a mild water-phobia.

In other news, our timetable for moving to Orlando has changed a bit, and we're now planning on leaving at the beginning of February. Which means we just have two more weeks to do whatever we're gonna do to bring this thread to its exciting conclusion!
