KTown–Easy to Get To, Hard to Leave

I’m not talking about the City of Knoxville itself. I’m talking about this KTown. KTown just released a line of swag with some pretty catchy phrases, and I think an”Easy to Get To, Hard to Leave” bumper sticker should be added to their line.

I’ve lived here for 17 years now, and although it’s been a while, I’ve been to KTown many times.  But I thought I was in a whole new city when I tried to find my way back to Greenwich West Knoxville last week after driving out to borrow the Ktown paint sprayer.

Is it just me, or should it be possible a little easier to get to I-40 from James White Parkway?  It’s seriously a case of “you can’t get there from here”.  I’m sure people have been complaining about this for a while, but it didn’t affect me until just now, so you can see why the issue now has my full attention.

When I return the sprayer I’m going to pack a couple of ham sandwiches and a jug of Tang for the trip home.  If I don’t make it home, it was good knowing you all…thanks for reading!

  1. I’ve told you for years. A trip to Knoxville (from Maryville) is an overnight adventure. Bless your heart if someone tries to get you to Turkey Creek.

  2. I know where Ktown lives and might I suggest taking some RC cola’s and moon pies instead of ham sandwiches. If you get lost, which will happen, you can use those to barter with and maybe get directions out of there from the locals. That is if the locals have ever left SoKno and know how to get out. If you can’t get get moonpies, then peanuts poured into a bottle of Pepsi is another alternative.

  3. HM, let me know before you come into town next time…we can correct that problem. 🙂

    TVD, I’ve been on some long bike rides KTown way. I can tell you what the locals don’t appreciate–fat guys in spandex shorts sweating on their newly paved roads.

  4. I grew up in South Knoxville. Give me a call next time you are desperate. I can either talk you out and/or translate. Fair warning, if the locals detect that I have acquired a Chicago accent it will get you killed.
