Sounds great, see you there
The klop, klop of water under the bows of a small boat will cure most troubles in this world.

Excuse my ignorance, but if one were to fly in for G5 from Upside Down country, what airport would one choose???

Chattanooga, TN is the closest but Atlanta will likely be easier to get flights to/from.

Well, I was raised very polite and given it is a US board and held in the US, I wouldn't dare to suggest otherwise.... :lol:

Looks like $3000 each for return flights from Brisvegas to Chattanooga. How long a drive from Atlanta Airport to Hales if we rented a car do you reckon???

, $6000 plus expenses

Track - I was planning on a hunt down in New Zealand in 2012 and looking at some example airline pricing. I am finding round trip tickets for about $1500. Are you looking at First Class prices?

I would think that Atlanta would be a better bet for ailrline rates. Thats in the top five for sizes of airports. The drive up is not a bad one by comparison. If you want a day of rest before driving, there are several folks in that area that would probably put you up for a night after the marathon flight and maybe you would not even need to rent an auto either.

Hi Dave,

We have reserved the three bedroom land cabin # 8. It is one of the cabins up on the hill outside the campground area. Our son, Bryce Beyler, and daughter-in-law, Tanya, will be joining us on Friday evening with our grandchillin Alyssa and Andrew. We will be arriving on Thursday and are all staying until Sunday.

I cant plan that far ahead, but if I can make it I'll split a cabin with somebody again. :D

Dave,

I reserved floating cabin # 31. It is the same cabin I had this year, the last one on the far end.

It is a single bedroom.

Forum member Soloboat flew in to Atlanta and rented a car to G4. Maybe you can ask him about the drive from Atlanta vs a plane change in Chattenooga.
Since Chattenooga is 1.5 hour drive from Atlanta, and Chattenooga is .5 hour from G5, you can just get the car in Atlanta and forget about the extra plane change.
Soloboat tried it, ask him.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
