Dr. Seuss described the weather in Crossville Friday, “The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house, all that cold, cold, wet day.” – That was true for our members living in the Crossville area that were unable to meet early Friday morning in Monterey to join us for a spirited ride along some twisty Tennessee backroads on our way to eat the award winning, #1 – “Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken” – their motto – “If you haven’t eaten at Gus’s, you haven’t eaten fried chicken”. For the 15 members who traveled with us, we enjoyed picture perfect weather all the way to Knoxville and almost all the way back before the skies opened up and it rained, but just briefly.

The curvy roads were fun (see the short video Kathy posted on the Plateau Corvette Club FB page) and enjoyed by drivers and passenger’s alike; the staff at Gus’s was friendly and served us promptly; the chicken was delicious and seasoned well – a stop at Gus’s is in order if you are ever in the area (or near one of the other 34 locations across the United States). After lunch, we had an opportunity to drive by the University of Tennessee, saw a starship delivery bot (see the picture), Neyland Stadium, World’s Fair Park, and Kingston City Park. The ride ended when several of us stopped for Ice Cream at the Custard Cabin in Crossville.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading and the photos
