Don't Go to Tennessee

We are still at Two Rivers Landing RV Resort with about six others. Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg Tennessee are empty of tourists. We drove through each town today. There are some people around Sevierville but as you drive south toward Gatlinburg, there are fewer and fewer cars and people. Sevierville is less tourist with more stores such as grocery and drug stores so those are still open. Fast food is open and some restaurants are doing carryout. The Smokey Mountain National Park is closed off including road access. 

We drove through Gatlinburg and never stopped except for a few red lights. We saw one T-shirt shop, two cabin rental offices, maybe two restaurants with carryout and one gas station still open. All hotels are empty. It does look like a ghost town except the buildings look normal. No one is walking about. The Moonshine stores are even closed! If you have been here, you know how it usually is with traffic and people everywhere.
