Meanwhile, I have some pix of Chattanooga to share. I camped just outside of Chattanooga and commuted to Atlanta c. 120 miles away each day. It was still cheaper than registering for the big do in Atlanta at the Hyatt Regency (Lord!). On the way down, I bought some cast iron at the Lodge Factory Outlet in South Pittsburg, TN.
Anyway, I went down Wednesday and settled into camp. The next morning, I tooled about a bit before heading off for Atlanta. I skipped the Choo Choo, but I did go up to Point Park to look around. It was magnificent. I also took the time to visit the Craven House halfway down the mountain, which I had skipped last time I was here. Then I took off for the other side of Chattanooga to browse the knick-knackery at Dragon Dreams. I bought a couple of small items (draconian Christmas tree ornaments, no less).
