Dear ILs, We are visiting Smokies for this Thanksgiving. We ll go hiking the mountain. I need suggestions for things I must be taking ( Other than winter clothes, eatables etc) and a list of "must visit" places there. IF any of you have already visited the place, please suggest me. We are going by road from Houston. 14 hrs, with a halt at Mobil. The next month it ll be a trip to Chicago. So I also need to know "must see" places there. I am a nature loving person. Human's creations also thrill me. Downtown I ll be going anyways. So I ll get to see sears towers and go on a boat ride. This is my first time. Please share with me you ideas.
