A group of friends from Alabama set out on a horse-and-wagon journey six days ago from northeastern Alabama to Pigeon Forge. These folks decided to make the 190-mile journey via horse and wagon. Much planning is involved in such an event, including routes to take, securing sites to camp in and much more. The group’s goal is to make it to Pigeon Forge within nine days. One of the main organizers, Kirby Johnston, fell ill just prior to the group’s departure and wasn’t able to attend the experience. Carl Jenkins of Gadsden, Ala., made it as far as Cleveland before hanging up his hat due to unbearable back pain.
