We hit town about two weeks ago, at first all of us were crashing in the living room of an apartment in Antioch TN, but we obviously needed a place of our own and a place to rehearse. We looked to see what it would cost to get us a couple of apartments in that place, but of course that is going to be a lot of money and they are not going to be crazy about it if we plug up the amps and start to play our music. Of course you can try to rehearse at a very low volume, but that is still going to be annoying to the average person, especially the drums and the bass player. So we found a little house out in the country. We can make as much noise as we like there and no one will care at all.
It is actually quite close to one of the big TVA reservoirs, I am not sure which one it is. However you can walk about two thirds of a mile through the woods. We figured this out when we see lots of local kids walking through the woods with tackle boxes and fishing rods. Of course we were not happy since not one of us had brought a hook or a line, much less a rod and reel. We were surprised that they let you use trotlines to fish here. You will see milk jugs floating in the lake and that means someone has a trotline out. They use them to fish for catfish here, but this lake must have all sorts of game fish in it. They sell them at this store along the way back into Nashville. We got some fish yesterday and cooked them out on the grill after I cleaned them.
