Charles Sample replied to Jan Carter's discussion Have you ever planned a vacation around knives?
"It wasn't strictly a knife vacation but when we would get the family together and rent a cabin to spend a few days at Pigeon Forge, I would always spend as much time at SMKW as I could without the rest of the family going into mutiny mode."
