    For those who like history ... or the mountains ... or shopping ... or who can actually afford to go on a vacation, you may be interested in Pigeon Forge's newest attraction. It's a big museum of things Titanic.

    We went camping in the Smokies once (well more than once, but only once did we go to Pigeon Forge) and went to PF to shower and stock up...what a trashy, horrid tourist trap. Only a brain dead moron could enjoy that place.

    :lol:

    I forget the name of the motel there at the turn off from the interstate for the Pigeon Forge/Dollywood area but I've stayed there a couple of times before in the past while heading for Rocky Mount. I stayed at the second motel on the right side. It has a small swimming pool inside that feels pretty good after driving all day. If I ever went to Dollywood I would want to see a museum of Dolly Parton's bras - not a ship that sunk.

    Actually the knife shop was kinda interesting, but hat was 20 years ago when it was in downtown Gatlinburg. I hear it moved out to the strip now.

    I have a relative who was really big at Schrade knives when they were made in Ellenville and made collectors knives. I have a rather large knife collection all given to me by this relative over a period of more than a decade and I can not get them into Australia!!!!!!!

    Garrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

    I would be pleased to take them off your hands to rid you of that problem.

    Might even trade you a genuine hand made Samari sword?
    Not ancient but pre WW2 and nice.

    It is hard enough to get a pen knife into Australia, customs would go apeshit over a samauri sword.

    I might sell all but the first one my Dad gave me; they have to be worth a chunk. They are with my sister in Arkansas now. I want her to take them to a knife collector’s convention but she is really busy right now staring at squirrels.

    Staring at squirrels? Never mind, forget that I asked.
