Afterwards??? Hmmmm, either the Alabama River if the locks are still open and/or the ICW past Pensacola to ????? Anyone game for a post G7 trip?? :D

Looking forward to it as always!! See you there....

Bob, whats wrong with Karaoke, we are still waiting for you to try it !!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :P
My job situ is as bleak as ever, but, that wont keep me from the next G :D

I just missed this. There is a Mom & Pop hotel 1 or 2 exits west of the Gathering location. Jasper TN has several chain hotels.

I think Chattanooga is about 20+/- minutes away via freeway also depending on what you are looking for

I'm hoping to make rail/car connections, but it's early to work out details...Will rail to Atlanta, then have to rent car from Atlanta to Chatt.(113 miles) So far that's the best I can do...Will hope to slide in with someone with a cabin when I get there...I want to bring boat, but 5000 miles at 10 mpg in Motor home is XXXXpensive(500 gals at 4 bucks per gal.), then there's the wife bitching about my drivin'...Whoops didn't say that....(gettin' close to 50 years, now), Dwain, the SKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG........

I'd like to. But, I don't think the Bartender will be ready.

I am unsure about the boat as yet.
I just started on with Sikorsky down here in South Fla. Im trying to get the boat down here, if that happens , I wont tow it back up the Chattennoogaa. Possibly Ill fly from Ft Laudrdle to Atlanta.
Right now, it is just too early for me to commit on much.
