Matthew just chilling with his smartphone. I, on the other hand, was reading on a vintage platform, a book. A bit of a lazy day which was spent enjoying the mountain cabin and some of the shops around the Pigeon Forge area.

The main event for the evening was the Lumberjack Feud. One of many dinner theatres in the area. We also had booked Hatfields and McCoys for the following evening.

The show began with a set of country music songs featuring this banjo player. A very skilled banjo player. Although not my style of music, I do appreciate hearing quality players and he was certainly that and more.

The show, as you might have gathered from the name, is based on two logging camps that are embattled in a feud. And only one camp will win. The show features Lumberjacks and Lumberjills that compete in a variety of competitions including band saws, chainsaws and log rolling.

There were also a number of events that featured dogs. Well trained and entertaining.

The highlight of the evening was the logrolling competition. Our side won, although all I did was eat, watch and take a few photos.

By the way, the images were all shot on the big Nikon rig, my D800, handheld at ISO 4000. I am still in shock at how well these cameras can do indoors particularly with challenging lighting and action.
