Travel theme: Orange

If you’re searching for that magic fall color for this week’s Travel theme: Orange (from Where’s My Backpack), look no further than Knoxville, Tennessee, where Big Orange tradition brings out some of the biggest, bestest, party-goin’ fans in the SEC.  Orange isn’t just a color here . . . it’s a way of life.  When you hear My blood runs orange, you can be sure a dyed-in-the-wool Tennessee fan is rarin’ to go.  It’s great . . . to be . . . a Tennessee Vol!

First, set up your tailgate near frat row and add one giant blow-up Smokey Dog.

Then, gather your friends around you, pose for a picture, and get ready to sing Rocky Top.

Football time in Tennessee

It’s cowgirl boots or flip-flops and cute orange dresses for these Vol fans!

Next, sit yourself down in Circle Park and rally the troops.  It’s almost Football Time in Tennessee.

So where are you exactly?

And right before the Pride of the Southland band kicks off the pre-game, board that bus near the Volunteer statue and head to Neyland Stadium.  Go, Big Orange!
