Cades Cove sounds lovely, but were doing this trip without a toad.
I have never taken the by-pass in an RV. So not sure what it is like. But I will say if u make it to the by-pass the worse is behind u. Gatlinburg is a breeze except for the right hand lane. Unless a storm or something keeping folks off the street u only go a hundred feet and stop for people crossing anyway!!! Be careful and enjoy. Thx, Dennis.
