Sounds like there will be lots of interest! - From the website, Groups of 20 or more get special pricing and there is a in-depth tour option.

I've wanted to stop for years when we travel east, but I have heard that neither site is navigable while pulling a trailer. The Bash site is about two hours away... but it is worth the trip. I see Latrobe is on the way. Do they still have a brewery?

We're in too, we think. We've got to see how "kid friendly" the tour is for kids. We'll check out the website this weekend.

Unless anyone's offering to babysit!?!?

We would also like to go-either Falling Water or Kentucky Knob. Falling Water is one of the places we intended to visit but never seemed to find the time.

I would also like to get over to the Homer Laughlin Factory in Newell, WV. That is about an hour from the Bash. For those who aren't aware... they have been making "Fiestaware" since the 30s

OK We have some interest. I have e mailed someone at Kentucky as to arranging a special tour. Will see what comes back and let you know. For now any of those that are interested please post your NONE BINDING INTENT, one or the other or both, here to give me an idea of what I have to negotiate with.

Rose the Kettle Corn lady is a tour guide out of Bedford. She might just be able to help us out...

I'm in for Falling Water and Homer Laughlin! Kentucky Knob sounds great if there's time.

Birthday Bash II registration for those who might have missed it yesterday...

Click here to access the REGISTRATION FORM ... then simply print it out, fill in the information, and mail it back with a check.

We've picked a great location this year... Antsy says he is bringing the whole family (that may take up all 115 spots ), Rose will be back with her Kettle Corn, Don (Mistral Blue) is helping us with an extra special dinner on Saturday night... and as always, Frank brings us those fantastic chuckwagon breakfasts.

For me, part of what makes "THE BASH" so fun is all the folks that take the time to share their interests and talents with others. And not less amazing are the folks who join in fun. Here is a link to the preliminary SCHEDULE OF EVENTS. If you have something you would like you add, let us know. A day trip to see Fallingwater is on my list.

Frank, Dale and I are looking forward to seeing you all at Coopers Lake this summer.

If you locate the campground on Google Earth with photos enabled you will see some good pictures posted by what appears to be a Renaissance Group.

We will just have to take some pictures and post next to them. The only limitation is Google Earth will not now accept any pictures with people that can be recognized in them.
