Gene I looked up Elizabethton up on The map and it is about 2 1/2 hours east of my location , east of Knoxville . If you look on the map where Tennessee , Alabama and Mississippi come together just north of Pickwick lake there is a little town called Savannah I am on the other side of the Tennessee river a little town called Saltillo a population of about 500 people very rural about 5 miles from the kids and grandkids they live in a little place called Bath springs. I am looking forward to moving there just not the packing up all the stuff and actually moving it. Take care.

The fires really displaced a lot of people over 12 thousand structures burned including my brothers two houses and business he got his family out and that is what is important. He is looking to relocate in North Carolina and start over.
