    Currently, I live on the far Western edge of Sumner county, just a couple of miles from I-65. It isn't nearly as bad as when I lived in Murfreesboro. Luckily, my commute in is at 4am, so traffic isn't bad yet, and coming home at 5, I usually can find a backroad way that is a little longer, but ends up taking less time, and I'm actually moving the whole time.
    I work off of Harding place, near the airport, and if it is above freezing and not raining, I pretty much always come on a bike.

    I live in Manchester and worked for a bit in Metro Center. If I wasn't through Murfreesboro by 6:30am, it was a dead stand still from 840 on in. If I wasn't gone by 3:15, the drive home was 2.5hrs. This was 6 years ago. Now it is much worse as evidenced by having to go to Nashville every quarter for a meeting.

    Yep.
    Ride down US 27 to Spring City and across to Sweetwater, TN. Then Cherohala, the Dragon, Cherokee, and Pigeon Forge.

    Boy, that Super Ténéré looks brand new! Here's another place I stop in for breakfast when I'm heading over to the Dragon or the Cherohala Skyway. Englewood, Tennessee IMG_0439.JPG

    So what would you recommend at the Tellico Junction Cafe? I pass through Englewood all the time, always hungry and stop at the McDonald's at Vonore.

    I've only eaten breakfast there, but it beats McDonalds, that's for sure.
