    I have plans of being there. But they are calling for rain again for the next weekend for Shades. As you know that can all change though. I am going to try to buy a few parts for my 71 Chevy truck at some of the Vendors that should be set up there.

    National Weather Service is calling for less than 20 per cent chance of the wet stuff.

    :)
     
  4. Hey,If it does rain the show is on asphalt now and on a hill,,so no one will get stuck or muddy.

    The first year the show moved to Splash Mountain it rained but we still had a great time. HRP

    Me too, first time to attend "Shades" but have dodged and cussed the traffic many times in the past. Just wanted to get home from the Berg, should have hung around and enjoyed.

    830 appointment in the morning and as soon as I can get finished (30-45 minutes) I will point Blackie south and head down 23 to Kingsport and then west to Pigeon Forge.

    Three hours to get to the PF exit and three hours to make the last 15 miles to the hotel............:D

    Could all of you just wait till I get to the hotel before you leave???:eek:

    I'll definitely have a tarp and straps with me this trip. Rain looks like a Fo Sho on saturday.... :mad: Still going either way. If it's raining, we'll just have to start a party at the motel earlier than planned.

    Even IF ... it rains on Saturday, the area is paved so it will not be a muddy mess like it always was at the old location.

    My CAR is 80 years old and been wet quite a few times ... :D

  30. Thanks for posting, Jeff. Nice shots. That beautiful green '40 p/u belongs to long time East Tennessee racer, L.D. Ottinger, 2-time NASCAR Late-Model Champion who competed for many yrs. on the Busch (now Nationwide) Series. He now spends his "retirement" building some outstanding hot rods..................Don.
