Hey Graywolf,
Hows it going on the g2g in paris? Getting a taste for some fried cats. I started a post on the Kentucky chapter to alert them we are thinking of doing this and told them to contact ya for more info.

Then lets start planning!

I want thoughts from everyone.....

I also want to know what it will cost me to pitch a tent in a national park.

NO BULLSTUFF about staying over at someones house....

I AM ME. I want to pitch a tent next to my truck, where can I do that? Someplace with a shower and a grill nearby.

I am DONE WITH not supporting myself. I want a campsite. (This time)

(With apologies to Peties 3, I know I am a nuisance. I am better at it if I am unfettered)

This time it will be on my own dime,,,,

It should also be a place were fishing can be taught. Young people should learn about that.

alabamabuddog is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Hummmmmm........... That other site does a meet at Land between the Lakes every year.

A Paris meet sounds good to me.


Those other guys do it around the first part of July. I think.

That's not so bad, but it does look like the rates are up some.

If I track down a shell for my Ranger I could be in hog heaven.

What day are we looking at, and exactly where?

I've got a guitar playin' stepson that might ride along because we could swing by the Gibson factory in Nashville...

The Paris G2G would be the last saturday of this month 4-29-06. The F100 Super Nationals are next month.

Hey Greywolf, nice website for the club. How do we send pictures for it?? Also, what size bed do you have for the ranger, long or short? Will ask a friend of mine. He is always horse trading for stuff like this.
Aso, What kind of guitar does your stepson play? My Middle daughter plays the Bass guitar.

I think there's a thread started here for posting pic's - pretty sure.

"R2" has a short bed.

Kevvy plays acoustic and electric, but lord knows what all kinds of music. EVERYTHING as near as I can tell. He already met a l'il gal that works at Dakota's who comes from a long line of drummers, so he might be putting a band together.

We've been talking about getting some of his other Dad's old amps that have some bad channels brought down here so I can troubleshoot and repair them. I know tubes and transistor circuits like most people know lawnmowers. We might even be able to turn up a Marshall...

I suppose I ought to dig up as much news about the Paris Festival as I can and do a short write-up on the chapter page. The 29th being a saturday I think will work very well for any and all who want to attend. There are several state parks in the area. My only unresolved question is where should we all meet up, and how do we know who all is FTE?

I would suggest meeting at a central location at a predetermined time, i think there is a small fuel stop just west of town that we could meet at, then convoy on into town. make a real statement!

That sounds like a good idea, but what about people who arrive late?

Not that I .... Would do that or anything...

On the other hand, the danger with me and truckstops is that I find so many cool goodies and souvenirs to spend cash on. And of course - there is always the CB Radio area in the store...
