Two most recent trips were both into TN this month:

Sep 12: Left, re-entered on US 321. Took a day trip to Watauga Lake with a few people.

Yesterday: Left on US 421, re-entered on US 321. Went to Johnson City to get my phone camera fixed (and I have to go back because they ordered the wrong part...) and Elizabethton to see a friend.

From Boone to Johnson City, entering Tennessee on 421? What route did you take past Mountain City?

I've said before that my go-to route to Boone is to take US 23 and Alternate US 58 to Abingdon, then US 58 to Damascus, then VA/TN 91 to Mountain City.  But that seems a bit out of the way if you're going as far south as Johnson City, and I have no desire to cross the mountain between Mountain City and Bristol ever again. I've driven 321 between Boone and Hampton once, and while it wasn't a picnic, I liked it better than 421.

I took 421 out of Boone, headed west on SR 67 at Mountain City, then on to 321/19E for the final stretch to Johnson City. SR 67 is a more scenic alternative to taking 321 all the way to the Tri-Cities (with a lot more opportunities to pass slow traffic) and only adds 5-10 minutes of extra travel time, although if you drive faster it's likely on par with or edges out 321, especially considering you can speed on 421 + 67 but can't really speed on 321.

I actually think I prefer it to 321 due to the passing opportunities - 321 is very curvy between Vilas and Hampton, so you only get a handful of risky passing zones to try your luck with, I'd never mess with them at night. I don't mind the curves themselves but it's getting stuck behind tourists/slow drivers that makes me go bonkers. SR 67 has a generous amount of climbing lanes and passing zones though, with traffic light enough that you have good opportunities to use them, and the views are a lot more impressive. I really want to drive it when the leaves change.

My route looked something like this: https://prnt.sc/1t9cgdp

Took US-412 out of Arkansas week before last, but didn't re-enter by road.  Took a one-way road trip with my brother and his 1996 4Runner back to his condo 4 blocks from the Space Needle in Seattle.  It was an almost 3000 mile trip that was on Interstate highways less than half the time.

Took US-412 west until it ended on I-25 in NM.  Popped over through Cimarron Canyon to Angel Fire, Taos, and Santa Fe before running I-25 up to Colorado Springs, actually Manitou Springs specifically.  Did Garden of the Gods, Glen Eyrie and the Pikes Peak cog rail, then took US-24 all the way through Leadville and Minturn until taking I-70 to Grand Junction.  Then popped down to Moab via a BLM semi-paved road to UT-128 for the most breaktaking stretch of the whole trip.  Took US-191 up through UT until US-6, then US-6 into the Salt Lake metro.  Took I-15 through the most horrid stretch of travel for the whole trip, and it wasn't even close to rush hour!  That metro seems to carry on FOREVER.  Took US-89 to Logan, UT, then UT-30 back to I-15.  Continued on I-15 up to Pocatello, then Idaho Falls.  Left Idaho Falls and drove onward on I-15 next to Butte, then I-90 to Missoula, MT.  Took US-93N/MT/ID-200W to Sandpoint, ID, then US-95S to Coeur d'Alene.  Finished I-90W to Seattle, did a large amount of walking, including onto the Bainbridge Is. ferry and back, then darted back to NWA as directly as possible through Denver by air a couple days later.  Seattle sure isn't as fun a place as the last several times I visited.  Suffered through some really pushy panhandlers that would try to work you for a block and a half before moving on to the next target.  A lot more tents in the streets, and one tweaker looked like he was humping a car door, but in reality was breaking into it in broad daylight, likely due to the absence of unappreciated and de-funded police.  Sure must grind on the soul to deal with that on a regular basis.  I pray for my brother and am glad he got out for a couple of weeks to get some perspective of normalcy in Arkansas.

I had forgotten about TN 67. I think I've been across it from Mountain City to 321 once, but remember very little about it, and don't remember the passing lanes.

US-6 into the Salt Lake metro.  Took I-15 through the most horrid stretch of travel for the whole trip, and it wasn't even close to rush hour!  That metro seems to carry on FOREVER. 

That's because you picked the wrong axis. Cross it on I-80 and it'll take you about 15 minutes. :)
