Winter 2022-2023

The cold temperature came to Tennessee for Christmas 2022, almost as low as farther north. It was near 0 degrees for a few days and there was about an inch of snow. We survived OK in our motor home, thanks to the way Tiffin builds it. Our neighbors in trailers and 5th wheels at the Sun TV Resort in Sevierville did not do as well. We moved to Two Rivers Landing RV Resort on January 13, 2023. 

We are going to Red Bay Alabama for two service items the last week of January, then return to Two Rivers for February and March. We had planned to stay near Gulf Shore Alabama in February but the storms going through the south changed our minds. The temperature has greatly improved since the cold in late December, lows near freezing and highs near 50 to 60. It will be raining a lot in Tennessee, as it usually does here this time of year. This is our favorite place.

We have a riverfront site about 20 feet from the French Broad River.


Yesterday, an abandoned car was found at the Smokey Mountain Knife Works.
Two Rivers Landing is located on the French Broad River, 1/4 mile behind
the Knife Works. The store video shows a man leaving the car and walking
toward the river after midnight. The police are looking in the river directly in
front of us. They had boats and a helicopter searching until dark.
He has not been located as of today.


We made a couple fast one day trips by car back to Indiana. My dash 
cam recorded the trip so here is one video of I-75 north toward Jellico 
and the Tn Ky state line.


If you have been to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg you have 
probably made this drive on TN-66 from I-40. The real view of the Smokies 
with snow on the mountains is much better than my wide angle video. 
We end at our motor home at Two Rivers RV Resort.
