Third Annual WhiteBlaze Nashville Winter Dinner - Saturday, February 14, 2009
Yes, boys and girls, Valentine's Day 2009! A good excuse to get out and take your Honey to dinner ... AND get to talk backpacking!
Here's the itinerary:
Noon (or thereabouts) - a hike at Radnor or Warner or wherever someone wants to lead one. Details to be announced if someone volunteers to lead this activity. Bearpaw, you listening?
5:00 - THE MAIN EVENT: Dinner at Ruby Tuesday's next door to REI in Brentwood.
7:00 - Presentation at REI by J.R. Tate, aka "Model-T", 3 or 4 time thru-hiker, and author of "Walking on the Happy Side of Misery" and "The Ghost Whisperers." Model-T will speak on "Chasin' Life With a Hiking Stick."
Questions? Volunteers? Complaints? Anyone needing a place to stay? Anyone offering a place to stay for out-of-towners?
If you need to MapQuest a map or directions to the REI, here is the address (and phone number)--
261 Franklin Road
Brentwood, TN 37027
REI has a new "community room" in their newly renovated and expanded store and they are looking forward to having our group for the evening.
I'm looking forward to seeing whoever is able to attend. Nothing like getting together for good food and yakking with fellow AT hikers. Well, except hiking?!
