365 Challenge: Day 195 – Smoky

Posted on Updated on

Smoky: The Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina where I spent my entire day — at the Dolly Parton Dream More resort and amusement park.

Below are about twenty pictures I took today with a few captions all about the trip! More to come in separate posts, i.e. the smoke from the train that stalled due to a passenger’s medical alert, the various names I kept calling Pigeon Forge, the town where this resides and the humor from seeing Dolly Parton memorabilia all day!

Sadly, this doesn’t start until 9/28, but they were beginning to set up for it

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots.
