The Chit Chat Thread for the week of April 28th 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Not sure how many of you are into the Comic hero stuff..But this movie is by far the best superhero movie yet...I am looking forward to Speedracer and Indiana Jone here soon!

The movie had great music and nice special effects!

Yeah, I went and saw it. It was pretty good. A little slow at times. But over all it was ok. My friend didn't like it as much since he read the comic books. I never got into them so what they gave me in the movie was my first.

SMARTFIX40 Road project

Major I-40 and I-75 Construction Project - For those that don't live around the East Tennessee area, or will be traveling on I-40 or I-75 in East TN.... BE AWARE!!! At midnight tonight TDOT will be CLOSING THE INTERSTATE through Knoxville. There are detours and alternate routes through the area. The small section of I-40 that goes through the middle of downtown Knoxville is being shut down for 14 months, YES 14 MONTHS!! Goto smartfix40.com for details. I live here and it's been a mess for years and finally they're going to "try" to fix it.

Those using I-40 will have to detour onto I-640 to go around downtown Knoxville. Those on I-75 can either travel to I-640 and go around, or take I-75 to I-275 near downtown and still avoid the construction.

The project is finally going to widen the interstate in that area from 2 lanes each way to 3+ lanes. and clean up, and re-do several bad exit/entrance ramps in that area.

Yea, it's going to be fun, and a nightmare till July of 2009 around here.

Heck I remember driving down I-75 and having to get off the interstate because it ended for about 35 miles. I think if I remember right it was in Sweetwater TN. It was a whole string of motels that tied up the completion of I-75 for years, I just don't remember when they finally finished it and probably put all those motels to a slow death. Do you remember?

Iron Man

Went, saw it, geeked out. Then again, it's probably the first movie I've been to in over 6 months, so maybe I was just overcome by the thrill. Either way, I do recommend it.

Does anyone know for certain if you can still take I75 to 275 and then Henley St. (441). If so, what's the best exit, etc... to use to do this route?
