TN Vacation with the Family (Pic Heavy)

Well we have been in Tennessee now for 4 days and am really not getting my online fix with the crappy dial up. I've hijacked the neighbors network to bring you some updates... like you care.


My best friend and I on the hike up House Mtn.


My youngest making her way up.


The Montly Crew


My oldest (Q-Tip as well call him) and Coco


My youngest with my nephew and unknown to me at the time my son looking over the shear face.


About 3/4's the way up


I'm not a fan of edge's combined with heights so I was kind of freaked out with this.


My baby didn't like the edges/heights either.


I did go out on this overhang but I preferred to stay back and take the pics, this was everyone but me and the dog.


Anyway, this is where I've been and what I'm doing at the moment. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Cool pics, great scenery. The only part of Tenn. I've seen is Pidgeon Forge, it's a very green state compared to CA.

Fantastic pics!!

Fine looking family you got there, I got vertigo just looking at the one of your son on the edge.
I'm a total wimp when it comes to two things...
1. Needles
2. Heights

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

I was yelling at him to get back. He was running and screwing around on the edge and then when they were eating he had his feet hanging over the edge. I'm getting nervous just thinking about it!

Did you ever see the opening sequence in "Cliffhanger" ?
(Sylvester Stallone movie)


I nearly puked when she dropped



Stay safe out there.

Looks like a fantastic lil trip you got going there!

I don't get vertigo like you seem to, I like technical climbing, rappelling, abseiling...but I have a healthy respect for high places having been knocked off of scaffolding/ladders before. I prefer to be tied in and secure If I'm high up in a precarious spot!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Looks like the weather was pretty good. It's actually 53 here today.

Nice pics. Thanks for sharing, wuss.

Great pictures! It looks like the kids are having a fun time.
Tennessee is a beautiful state, with some awesome roads.

Amen. And I really like how those roads lead into GA and NC. They just keep getting better.
