I started to think about it last week, but I stayed home and played with the tractor instead.........different toy, it's not work if I don't have to do it.

As far as I know, it is the only remaining one in TN. The northern approach looked like this today.


There is a ferry crossing the Cumberland River up north of Dickson Tn close to the New Johnsonville Tn as I remember. At least it was 3 years ago.

Page back a ways in this thread and you'll see someone else posted it there and I went and got it that time. Ferrys are still cool tags though. The last time through the drought was still hard on and it was a steep climb up off the ferry. Made it more fun. All the trucks and suvs were eyeing my BMW Adventure. I had no problems of course but some of them did.

"...By 2000 few ferries operated in Tennessee. In 1997 the Coast Guard licensed two ferry operations in the state, the Saltillo Ferry in Hardin County and the Cumberland City Ferry in Stewart County, but noted that a bridge to serve the Saltillo transportation corridor was under construction. "

just surfing while it rains

edit:
"...along with the Saltillo Ferry (closed in 2003). ..."

That's Franklin Limestone. They've been mining limestone out of the mountain behind it for decades. I went in there years ago with the Boy Scouts and the mountain is for the most part hollow. There are also trails that run over the top of it and parallel I-40 all the way East to the Airport Road Exit. As you cross the bridge at the bottom of the hill between the Westel Road Exit and the Airport Road Exit you'll see the trail.

I found it in about 2 minutes so I guess that's not why it's sat for a month. Warm weather is on the way (I hope)
