It is one billion degrees today in Tennessee. My air conditioner is broken. I live way in the Boonies and mosquitoes are worse this year than Ive ever seen them. I cant sit outside, even in the daytime without being feasted upon like Suki Stackhouse. I moved all my gear into a tiny she-shed I have in the back. It stays cool but that's about all I can say for its benefits at present.
I found myself checking out various destinations where I should be, instead of in this building in my sweltering backyard hiding from all that thick Tennessee air you can wear that's been lingering since 6 a.m. I found some pretty cool places for true crime weirdos like us.
The Alcatraz East Museum in Pidgeon Forge, TN is a replica of the famed prison but tons of true crime drama inside. There are five displays with everything from serial killers to CSI to look over. Lots of interactive exhibits. Check out OJ Simpson's Bronco and Ted Bundy's VW while your there.
The Last Resort is the bar serial killer Aileen Wournos had her last beer in. They have a framed photo of her on the bar top. It is in Port Orange, Florida and it is where she was when the police zoned in and arrested her for the murder of six men.
The Lizzy Bordon House is a bed and breakfast that you can stay at and hang out in. Isn't that crazy? I don't know why, but that trips me out. WTF?
