December 26, 2010 (day 5)
I thought I might spend another night somewhere around Nashville but opted to sleep at home instead. I visited Belle Meade for the first time and the National Corvette Museum for not the first time.

December 25, 2010 (day 4)
Chattanooga gets its first serious Christmas Day snowfall in forty-one years and everyone loves it. Roaming the Delta Queen with no more that a dozen people aboard at any given time was an interesting and enjoyable experience. By contrast, she's all but sold out for New Year's Eve just one week away.

December 24, 2010 (day 3)
It was a quiet Christmas Eve. I got in a walk and some reading plus two excellent meals.

December 23, 2010 (day 2)
It took awhile but I did find a good spot for breakfast. In Chattanooga, I finally got inside the Coker Museum then returned to the Delta Queen.

December 22, 2010 (day 1)
Not much excitement in my drive to the north edge of Knoxville but I filled out the page with some real Christmasy stuff from Sunday.

Prelude - December 20, 2010
I'm continuing my Christmas away from home streak this year even though it won't be all that far away. A number of things, including the fact that retirement takes the pressure off of squeezing a major outing into the Christmas to New Years slot, work to keep me closer to home. Chattanooga, Tennessee, will be the southernmost point of the trip. Going and coming will probably involve a little time in Nashville and/or Knoxville. One reason that Chattanooga got the nod is that the Delta Queen has a special winter rate for weekdays so I'll be spending at least one night there.
