    I spent a couple of hours there last year and it was super crowded. Lots of teams competing for the $20k in prizes.

    Just to give you an idea of the possible crowds, there are roughly 8 million folks a year coming through the area to get to The GSM National Park. In other words....if you are in a hurry to get from Point A to Point B....you are in the wrong place.

  4. It is beautiful up here. But sooooooo crowded when you are a resident.

    Before I moved up here I had a realestate agent tell me "Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon the area belongs to the tourists....Sunday evening to Thursday afternoon it belongs to the residents."

    He was so right. But this time of the year in some of the areas it is all week long.

    Did you get so see Dolly in the parade or at Dollywood? She is one fine lady. It is amazing how much money she pours in to the area both from her businesses (jobs, purchases, etc) and personal charitable contributions.
