    Default Save 08/08/09!

    Just a reminder that two weeks from tomorrow is the Rutland Long Trail Festival.

    (See www.longtrailfestivalvt.com for details).

    In addition to good times with Long Trail and A.T. hikers past and present, there will presentations, food, lots of music, and best of all, a Trail maintenance project that will include a very special guest from Dennis Cove, TN.

    Hope to see lots of you there!

    Looks like Bob is a busy man this year. Just getting done with his European tour and then going to the LT.

    Bearpaw88 (who posts here now and again) was in charge while Bob was away in Spain, and she did a great job.

    As to who's watching Kincora when Bob travels North, I don't know, but I'm sure it'll be someone equally capable.

    I had a blast last year at the Long Trail Festival. Unfortunately this year my husband will be in the hospital with his heart problems. Say hi to everyone for me.

    Beautiful campsite on the country Fairgrounds, with real bathrooms and showers available.

    Default Rutland Festival

    Hope to make it there one of these years but looks like this year is not the one. I hope everyone has a great time renewing friendships and making new ones. I have never heard anything negative about this event.
    Haven't checked the weather lately up there. It's been really different all over the east coast this year. NOBO's may need some extra support and encouragement.
    Go 09ers! You can do it!
    Cudos to all the planners of this event. Wish I could come and help.

    There will be some food vendors on-site, and the Fairgrounds are within easy walking distance of all sorts of eating places, as well as a supermarket.

    Were going to head up on Thursday and get a room for Thursday night. Is there anything we can do in the area on Thursday that might be fun.

    Have a nice steak and find a movie theater.

    Other than that, Rutland at night is not particularly exciting.

    See you Friday!

    The Inn at the Long Trail is 10 Miles east and has good nachos and beer. Or you could head north and look for the Monkey holding up a VW along the side of the road.
