Post Sunday Drive
My mom and dad kept our boys, so we skipped church and took the truck out for a little drive yesterday.

We went up through Knoxville and Oak Ridge up to Oliver Springs, then on to a road called The Devil's Triangle. There wer some great photo-ops along the way, so here are some.

The first stop was at this old country church. I couldn't tell if it was still being used or not.

As if you wanted to see my ugly mug, but here I am doing my not so best James Dean. :lol:
Image

Me sportin Zumo's shirt.
Image

The wifey.
Image

The next stop was at this blue & white service station called.........well.......the Blue & White Service Station. :crazy:
Image
Image

The pumps looked like they still worked and had lights on, but nobody was home.
Image
Image
Image

We made a couple more stops, but I didn't take pics of the truck. There were also other photo-ops, but we decided to save them for another trip.

After about 20 switchback curves later, we ended back up in downtown Oliver Springs, with some really neat old buildings.

I went across the street to the old drug store.....
Image

.....where we had an interested audience.
Image

Image
Image

In the alley behind the drug store.

Image

We left Oliver Springs and drove over to Clinton, where I immediately found my next ride. :metal: Eat your heart out, B.A. :mrt:

Image

Anyone like trains?
Image
Image

You gotta check in at the depot, first.

Next we stopped in to see what was on at the movies...er...movie. :lol: Someone needs to photoshop "Steve McQueen in Bullitt" on the marquis. :cool:
Image
Image
Image

We drove on over to Lake City, and over Norris Dam, but not before stopping in to take the lake view.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And finally we stopped in at the grist mill just south of the dam before heading home.

I know you guys won't have as much looking at the pics as much as we did taking them, but I still hope you enjoy them.
