Both were played by Fess Parker
HAHA I should know that because I worked the summer of '87 at Florida's Magic Kingdom and the Davy Crockett theme was part of the Crystal Palace's music the time I'd heard it 7 times every day, I knew it was almost quitting time! I honestly can't remember any of the other pieces of music in that loop!

The Meriwether Lewis campground outside Hohenwald, TN is beautiful. (Meriwether Lewis died here under mysterious circumstances.There is a monument to him nearby.) Two sections. No hookups, no noise. We've never seen more than a few other campers there (sometimes no one but us). There is a small restroom building near the site for the seasonal host, but no shower. It is free.
If you have some time, get off the parkway for the day and visit nearby Hohenwald. It's a pretty, friendly little town. Home to the Elephant Sanctuary (, the Lewis County Museum, a number of antique stores, and some surprisingly good restaurants for such a small town. Junkyard Dog for lunch or dinner, The Emporium (run by a church group, in a whimsically decorated old store) for lunch (great homemade soups, salads, and their own version of "cubans"), and the General is the local place for breakfast.
There's a SuperWalMart if you need camping supplies, grocery stores, at least two auto parts stores, and some cute little shops for fun.

SherrynPaul, glad you mentioned Hohenwald, the home of the Oliver factory! We took the tour a couple of years ago & got to see some in various stages. Very nice travel trailers, but unfortunately, too pricey for us. A big thumbs up to the Junkyard Dog cafe in Hohenwald. We had a wonderful lunch there!

And while we're talking about that part of the Trace, just south of Franklin, TN is Leiper's Fork--a tiny little town filled with antique shops, a few places to eat & live music on the weekend. It's only a mile from the Trace & worth checking out.
