Doc if entertainment doesn't fit into the "keep it simple" event planning this year don't worry about it. The fiddle player sounds good but I'm sure there'll be enough entertainment from all of us Truckstockers!

Some of the best moments were around the campfire. A good time for conversation and relaxation.

The simplified nature of this year's event (meaning simpler for Doc) needs to be kept in mind... Truckfest appears to have managed without any entertainment. Other than... well, enough said.

Here's hoping that the fog isn't so thick this year during the cruise.
Does Pine Mt. mean a mandatory mountain driving course for flatlanders?

No. Flatlanders crashing in the mountains is where we get most of our truck parts.

Sure!

Lesson #1: Wear thick-soled shoes, because you never know when you might have to put your foot down on the pavement during a brake failure.

That explains a lot about you Bob!!! LOL!!
" you got a pertty mouth boy!!"


No I m just kidding you Bob !!
I would love to learn how to play the banjo!

I saw this T-shirt in a shop window in Gatlinburg this past weekend. For some reason, I thought about you guys.

Good to hear! Send me an email to [email protected] so I can get you on the list.

Cumberland Gap is very close to me. We actually drove through there this past weekend.

Hello Abe.
I have been driving all my trucks and Dad and I have been on a 2000 mile trip,with 2 trucks.
I suppose I will take The 1956 F250.....known previously as earl.
I hope to bring my shasta camper,or build a home-made cap from an old popular mechanics book that shows 1 on a 1956. That will give us sleeping accomodations and will see if that works out.
Are you going,Abe?
Kentucky mountains is some awesome country.

The wife and I took a ride last sunday. Went over to Walhalla SC then up rt 28 to Highlands NC,The river along Rt 28 is where a lot of scenes where filmed for deliverance. The road makes the Dragon look like a straight line. Someday I will get a get together going down here in Ga,and take the brave ones over for a picnic down by the river. Bob would feel right at home.
