Three bears climb into man’s car

Southern hospitality is one thing, but allowing three bears to take up residence in your car might be taking it too far. When Chad Morris, a barbershop owner, parked his car in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, last Thursday, he returned to find a black bear cub climbing through his car window. Apparently, the first one was just a scout, as two more approached afterward, entering through the right driver’s side window while a mother bear watched from afar. Morris posted about the encounter of Facebook, ...

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

Mercury in Retrograde: An Interview with Former Brian Jonestown Massacre Jester Joel Gion

Picture Joel Gion for a second. The image you have is probably the hip, perma-cool, sharp-dressed tambourinista, front and center with the ever-changing, ever-volatile Brian Jones Massacre. Well, scratch that and replace it with that of a camera-wielding tourist with a corn dog in one hand and a bag of cotton candy in the other, sporting a Dolly Parton T-Shirt while he waits to jump on the "Smoky Mountain River Rampage" ride. "I'm going to Dollywood!" says Gion excitedly, at the sta...

Henri Grissino-Mayer sounded the warning for years that a catastrophic wildfire was liable to hit Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The University of Tennessee professor gave a talk in Gatlinburg a few years ago in which he noted the city sat at a wildland-urban interface, surrounded by steep slopes covered in overgrown, fire-prone vegetation. “I walked through Gatlinburg and looked at all the businesses and homes, and they’re all made of wood. I pointed to them and went, ‘Fuel fuel fuel fuel fuel,’” Griss...
