I’m in Chattanooga for a night. Flew in at 7. The airport is tiny, dirty, and filled with clueless people. There’s some sort of stalled construction out front, and people just parking anywhere in the pickup and dropoff areas. The airport is even smaller than Reno’s shithole airport, and could pass for a cow trading bazaar.
Hop in the rental, head to the hotel. The streets are nothing but pawn shops, ghetto hair and wig salons, run-down hotels. Naturally, my 3-star hotel is a 30 year-old dump with spotty internet and lumpy beds.
Summary: Nuke it from orbit. 2/10, worse than Phnom Penh
