Chattanooga was a quick stop for us to see the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum. While there we also viewed the “Wall of the Fallen” in memory of tow truck operator killed while working around the world. We then viewed the museum, and then headed up into the smokies. (Great Smoky Mountains). Along the way we stopped at a farm which was selling farm fresh cheese, made onsite. It smells like cow poop (or “Gold” if you happen to be a farmer) outside and there were dairy cows everywhere, so it must be good, right?  Well it was good.
