Sure hope they've learned something from the comments last year:

Twenty-five bucks a NIGHT for tent-camping?? Four bucks for a glass of beer and nine bucks for a burger? Whoa. :eek:

I know it won't touch the Bash and to think Ron pulled that off himself while transporting everyone.

I am working it wolf. I am pushing my command hard on this. Long story, but as of last week they agreed to let me go for Thur-Fri-Sat-Sun (Thursday and Sunday are travel days), but then again things have changed with the current mission as of yesterday and I haven't gone back and ensured they are not going to renig.

You going to be at Trail Fest today? If you are I can explain it better in person. But the plan is to be there.

Try this link: http://www.hotspringsnc.org/trailfest04.html

I did. That link re-directs to this link:
http://www.hotspringsnc.org/frameset.php?MenuName=Events

There is a list of events on that page, the first one is "Trailfest 2007". But when you click on that link, up comes an error page that says


"I'm sorry, but that page can't be found on our site.

Please choose from the menu on this page.

Thanks for visiting us!"

Oh well...

Our family went yesterday and met many friends of the trail.There was a little 4 person band of young kids playing on Main Street in front of the Bluff Mtn Outfitter.To me it was the highlight of the fest.It has been a long time since I have heard music that good.
