I told my wife we needed a three-car garage for my projects...she told me to ask her for permission next time before I buy a house.

Whoops, yup there was...and I even posted on it! :oops: Time to bring it back up maybe ... so a guy can make res on the Queen and/or plan around the weekend...some folks here are talking 4 or 5 nights at Hales Bar it sounds like. I'm up for a Chattanooga boat trip/Queen...I'm also going to try for Knoxville either before or after also, just to add new miles on as long as I'm there if the weather cooperates...maybe Bruce or Paul will chime in over there on whether they are coming early like last year or maybe staying late...Dave G....Dwain....anyone else

I been thinking about staying on the Queen again too, do you think I should re-open my contact with that for a group rate thing?

Bob : We'll be arriving early and leaving late.

6 - 1 bedroom
2 - 3 bedroom
After my call there is only one 3 bedroom remaining. They go for $299/night through the end of Oct. (A one bedroom goes for $159/night). I reserved a 3 bedroom for Friday and Saturday nights, Sept. 24 and 25. The total was $656.31...or $219 per bedroom total for the 2 nights. I will only be using one room, so if someone wants to commit to one or both of the other room(s), send me a PM and we can make that happen. If I don't have 2 others by 30 days out I'll cancel it.
Thanks...

Since my wife left, I'm going stag. So someone can bunk in my cabin. I'll take the couch.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

We have the place almost booked out. For the uncommitted, read the thread. Some of the rooms are taken with the intent of sharing. You are not out! Nickajack has RV and camping.

There are many campgrounds in the area. Hotels in Jasper TN.

Bob M. has grabbed a big 3 bed room unit. Dave G. has room. There are others :!:

We will make this happen :!: All are welcome. :D

This is amazing. Four years ago this was going to be a few guys at a campfire drinking beer and telling lies. NOW, it's a bunch of people telling lies! :?

FOOD: It is still early! We usually cook for ourselves. After 14+ years Lauren has decided that I can cook some things. I will probably do Brunswick Stew again. Maybe a Boston Butt or two, and maybe some ribs. Kens may do a Low Country Boil again on Friday. (Ken and I like to work on Friday night.)

Bruce D and Mr. Hot Rod may do breakfast again, with REAL Maple Syrup! Others will jump in as we get close!

No worries mate! Plan to come!

Y'all Come!!!

I can attest to that. He did great when we did the 3 egg omelets on Sat morn. A big "Thumbs Up!"
