I just returned from a 5-day whirlwind press tour of middle eastern Tennessee. The trip encompassed a wide variety of activities, but my primary focus was on the natural beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities in the region. I took plenty of notes each day and at the end of my visit I used them to sketch out this rough map to highlight some of the memories I made along the way. It’s a visual record of the experience, one that will come in handy when I get around to creating a proper illustrated map. If you like American history, bluegrass music, excellent BBQ, wilderness adventure and some of the friendliest folks around…I highly recommend a visit to the Volunteer State!!
