D had fall break, so we took the long weekend and went up to Tennessee. Man, anyone who says "No place does autumn like New York" can bite me, because they've clearly never been to the Smoky Mountains. There's a reason why October is their busiest tourism month--because it's f'ing gorgeous.
We'd forgotten just how crowded it is in October, though, because last year we were there in December, and a couple years before that it was August. So it's been a while since we were there in October. Wall-to-wall people.
We're still hoping to move there and will revisit the situation when D finishes school.
