update: Looks like I will be out on this one. The 100% chance of rain is enough to keep me away or at least driving 4-6 hours. I hope everybody has a great time. I wish it would have been better weather.

Well guys and gals,
I regret to have to back out at the last minute (not only because I'm not going to get to meet you all but I'm past the cancelation period on my reservation and its going to cost me money). But my daughter has come down with a viral infection so we'll be staying home this weekend. I hope the rain holds off for you all and that you all have a great time. I'll catch you next time hopefully.

Well, that linky is certainly good information Eric!! :D

I say central time :)

As far as food goes, you may have to travel to Pikeville to get food in a decent resturant because I don't remember a single one on the drive over after that little town. HOWEVER, the Inn has a resturant :) a pretty good one too :)

930 works for us. We'll be in the inn Friday night, too, if anyone is interested in dinner or beers. Speaking of beers, are there any there, or are we forced to sneak our own? What is the area like as far as dining? Do we need to bring victuals with us, or has this area of Tennessee discovered the marvels of gas and electricity so that they can open diners and such? ;)

930am central or eastern? I like 930 central...one more hour of sleep after a shoot the night before!

Terrible/no cell reception up there... Is everyone okay with 930am at the lobby in the Inn?? (saturday)
04/11/2007 11:36:02 PM · #12
I'll be coming in Saturday morning sometime. I don't remember very good cell reception up there. Where should I meet everybody?
04/11/2007 04:36:08 PM · #13
Welcome Tony! Glad we found you in time, and happy to have another attendee!
04/11/2007 04:21:04 PM · #14
WOOOOHOOOO!! WOOT! One more :)

Billy,
Thanks for the PM. I never saw the thread, but I should be up there Saturday. I've heard rumors of thunderstorms that day. I hope they aren't too bad, because the motorcycle ride would be great!

i am so wishing we could join ya'll this weekend. Instead, we will be enjoying the Memorial Mission Hilton. :/ His surgery is scheduled for 11 am on the 11th of April (tomorrow, today, or some time in the past, depending on when you read this).

To keep from getting too nervous about, I just keep reminding myself that the surgeon said of all the open heart surgeries they do, this particular one is the "easiest."

have fun, be careful, and take lot and lots of pictures. :)

Hey everybody, I'm still trying my best to make it. I have a senior (high school) photo shoot on Sunday but I should be able to make it down for Saturday. I will let you know by Friday if I'm going to make it or not. I wish the gas prices would drop a bit. Yeah, like thats going to happen!

Bernard, I am so sorry to hear that you are having health issues; it amazes me how we men in only our thirties are having heart problems. I want you & Karma to know that Glenda & I will be wishing you the best of care and a speedy recovery - Lord knows it can't be easy for your family. Just keep in mind that your DPC family here is thinking of you, and take good care of yourself!!

OK gang - lets see who can come up with the best scenic pic for the Shuford's (maybe a little of Tennessee's beautiful landscape will give Bernard something to enjoy, instead of those drab hospital walls!)


Thanks for the thoughts. The good news is that it's "the simplest kind of heart surgery they do" in one respect, even though it's a full blown open heart procedure. I'm having a rather large congenital defect repaired, rather than one of those stress related breakdowns, and I've known it was coming all my life, just a matter of when.

Thanks again - you guys and gals have a LOT of fun and DO post some pics. :)

as of right now, nards656 and I need to be taken off the list. as bad as we hate it. :(

we will be in TN that weekend, but in Sevierville -- the TN air museum has a "fly in" of vintage warbirds, and our 5 year old absolutely LOVES this event. it is also on the 14th, so . . . the 5 yo and airplanes win out. soz.


Just to get all the "facts" up to date, I will actually still be in the hospital recovering from heart surgery while you guys and gals are having fun, so please have some fun for me :) The kids may be at the air museum, but I'll have other things to attend to. Hope you all have a great time!

Unfortunately, I've had something come up that forces me to back out. I was very much looking forward to meeting some of you, but I guess I'll have to wait.

I just released a reservation (one minute ago) on one of the two bedroom cabins, so if anyone's interested in that, call them right away and it might be available.
