We had a mission in mind, we were going 'pickin', just like the American Pickers on the television show.
Instead of randomly stopping to see what we would bargain for, our destination was an old antique/junk store situated within a stones throw of Center Hill Lake in Smithville, TN a reservoir constructed by the U.S. Corps of Engineers in 1948.
The lake, which is 64 miles long, and covers an area of 18,220 acres has approximately 415 mi (668 km) of shoreline, with the deepest point at 190 ft and is well-known for water recreation and fishing.
