We ahd originally planned to go to the International Rally late last summer. It's only about 250 miles from home. We figured that this was a good opportunity to go to an international. The more we read about it, the more we were scared by it. We don't really want to be prisoners for eight days with minimal electric and minimal sewer service. When we camp with our Airstream, we like to come and go as we please. Soo, we decided against going.

hi moosetags...

if already camping in the area...

a day trip to see vendors, the vintage units and so on would be fun...

my view is the int. is mostly a legislative convention...

and club offficers and members just happen to bring rvs to sleep in...

there aren't campfires (hazards) and very few folks cook out....

the vac has a tent for drinks and gathering but that was not enough for me...

you CAN dance or play cards or knit everyday in one of the buildings...

for some who have been very active at home in their region or local unit...

this is a chance to rub elbows and hob nob (look it up) with high office seekers...

and for folks that have been to many it's a chance to see old friends...

_except for the likelyhood of 90s in temp and humidity...

a forum rally nearby would be more fun and folks could car pool for a visit...

next year it is in montana and i will likely go again...

to camp in montana.

and i hope we have a grand forum function in big sky country!

cheers
2air'

Carol,

I know that, I meant near the vendors, registration, exhibits, workshops, entertainment, internet access, you know the important stuff which we need to keep away from outsiders.

The trip to Salem was 900 miles for us. That close, I had to go. Why, you ask? To see first hand what it was, I had been told that you only need to go every other year or so, and to meet people on this forum and other lists which I have met only virtually. Unfortunately, many local forum members did not attend, but had a separate function nearby, I had hoped to meet them, but I was difficult for us to get away.

Listen to other peoples thoughts, but make up your own mind based on your own experiences. Everyone looks at life through the filter of their experiences. No one looks at life the same way you do.

It was worth it and we will go to Bozeman in 2008 for the same reasons.

Bill

I was honored to met you at the 2006 International. You may not remember me poking around the vintage section with my sister Patty but I remember you.

Michelle,

I think "honored" is a little over the top, but you are one of those who are no longer electrons on a screen but a real person. BTW, don't you and Leon owe me the parts list for the flag pole light?

Bill

Yes, this is true. We have gotten around this promise within the NEU by just making the flag pole light thingie and giving them to our flag flying members.

Leon had given me the list, I need to find it (gosh, I hope I didn't recycle it) and get it posted.

BTW, I WAS honored to me you.

Thanks 65GT. We will be passing by the GA National Fair Grounds on our way south. For those who aren't familiar, GNFG are directly on the exit and are adjacent to I-75. Everybody traveling on I-75 during the Internationals will be blinded by the light reflected off of all of that aluminum like a field of mirrors! Anyway, I had thought of stopping in and checking out a few things for a couple of hours Saturday morning and hitting the road again. Perhaps we can hook-up with some or you guys if things work out.

What are the "must sees" or "must does" in the area?
There is a nice video up at WBCCI.org specifically here WBCCI.org

I want to go find where they filmed Fried Green Tomatoes and sample some. Also hear you can go to Sunday School taught by Jimmy Carter.

Although they may have filmed in Georgia, the true Whistle Stop Cafť is in Irondale, Alabama (a suburb or Birmingham, where Author Fannie Flagg grew up.) The setting used in the movie is just north of Macon, GA. The scenes involving the train and the little boy's foot/leg being severed were filmed in Senoia, GA (pronounced Senoy by the locals).

Cordele, GA (pronounced Core-deal) is just down the Interstate at Exit 101. You can catch a train (the S.A.M. Short Line) that runs on a regular schedule that goes directly to Plains, Ga (Jimmy Carter's home town) and you can take tours of the very small rural town there.

As far as Sunday School with Jimmy, I don't know, he is often on book tours, at the Carter Library in Atlanta, or on international peace trips, so I don't know if you can catch him in Church. IIRC, he does attend the local Maranantha Baptist Church when he is home.

Of course with all the flack he's been getting over his latest book, he may just be in hiding!

Work and other previously scheduled engagements will keep us away from the International this year; too bad, because it's only about 7 hours from us and our son lives there.

I hope to be retired next year and we have always wanted to see Montana...sign us up.
