Dual Dominic

Around 5 AM Monday morning we were awoken by an excited voice, saying “Hey, I’m in Knoxville, I can be in Nashville to get you in a little over three hours.” Without knowing what I was agreeing to I said “okay”, hung up and returned to sleep.

Around 8 AM we were warned that Dominic was getting close. We got ready and went out to meet him. To our surprise we got two Dominic’s; a father and son combo.

Domenic and his son, Domenic took us away from Nashville into the eastern hills of Tennessee. The drive was amazing, more hills covered in trees alive with orange, red, brown and crimson colors.

Dominic is originally from Arizona, and has traveled to many states over the years. He is also a skilled critic of fast food restaurants. He usually goes for Jack-in-the-box, but we’ve already tried Jack, however we’ve never tried Krystal. Dominic insisted on taking us there, to get the full experience. After a greasy lunch, a heaping pile of garbage and a stiffening heart burn our experience was complete.

We made our way back to Dominic’s new house in Oak Ridge to meet his wife Shanda and their other son Mikkel. Dominic and Shandy just bought their first house, only three days ago. It even came equipped with a pool table. We had a game, but it turned into their sons throwing the balls back and forth, much more fun to watch than us playing.



Our Tennessee experience was topped off with a generous cultural gift from a local merchant. John gave us our first taste of Moonshine. When he heard we hadn't tried shine he simply reached under the counter and passed us a bottle. Fueling the stereotypes.


After an amazing Tennessee experience with Domenic, his family and his friends we headed to Kentucky.
