Erik and Misty, I have absolutely loved touring the area with you. Thanks for documenting your adventures. I agree with Dave, it's been EPIC!

It's kind of sad that it's over. This thread has really made me want to visit the area.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

This has been one of my favorite threads as well, but now you're off to bigger and better adventures in the Sunshine State to share with us!

The Thread is dead. :cry:

Long live the Thread! =)

I just started reading your adventures recently and it sucks that you won't be able to continue them. Thanks for the wonderful reports and I hope you make another thread for your Orlando adventures.

Helicopter rides are both terrifying and awesome! You certainly ended the thread on a high note! I've only visited that area once, and I was blown away by how much random stuff there is to do. Thanks to you, we all got to experience all those random attractions!

Good luck with the move. Thanks for all the updates!

awww, that means I can't be poster of the week anymore if there is no thread :(

thanks for your entertaining Photo TR, hope you can find something to keep us amused while you're in Florida.

Maybe a minigolf thread? =)

This has been my favorite thread over the last year. Although we live nearby and have already experienced much of what the area has to offer, seeing your coverage of it was just as enjoyable as being there, and SO much fun to read.

Oddly, the same goes for Orlando. I've been there a million times, and have experienced so much of what it has to offer. However, if you two don't find some way to amuse, inform, and entertain us as you did in this thread, something will be wrong with the universe.

Thanks again for the time and effort in here, and good luck with the move!

Alright, can I ask a question? Yes I realize I just did, but anyways:

What is rent like in the Pigeon Forge area? Would this be a good place to move for the summer for an older college student to find a summer job? (I am 36 y/o with a small dog)
Of the road, but still in a truck...By the way, that's my dog Millie (named after Millennium Force) over there to the left!

Erik & Misty -

This has been not only one of the most entertaining threads on TPR, but also one of the most useful. I can't tell you how many people I have directed to this thread when discussing Gatlinburg and the surrounding area. It's a very popular weekend getaway destination around here and there's always someone at work asking around about it. Of course, one the most common questions is "What is there to do there?" I always send them a link to your thread.

I have gotten very positive responses from everyone I've sent in your direction. Congrats, the GP loves you too!

Can't wait to see your Florida adventures.

From The Simpsons:

Doctor: What you need is a good, long rest. I suggest Florida.
Homer: Florida? But that's America's wang!
Doctor:They prefer, "The Sunshine State."
