Favorite George Grand-isms

These are but a few of classic George. We'll start off with this qualifier..... What I'm about to say may offend some people, but you need to know up front that I don't give a damn." George on life in general. A baseball hat, worn fashionably backwards, is usually a sure sign of a complete moron. If...

Re: George Grand has left the building

Wayne,

George invited me to join here back in 2003 and for the next 2 years he and I pretty much carried this place. I think you would have liked him.

George Grand has left the building

George passed away yesterday at home after a battle with cancer, he was 63. I was proud to know George and to call him a friend. He was a character and lived life on his terms. A gentleman of the highest order, a true class act with a big heart and as stubborn as they come. I'll miss you, my friend....

What a motley crew in that group pic. :shock: Eddie my man, still enjoying that drive-in shower upstairs? Ray, you're starting to look a bit like Jerry Garcia.

Re: Bring a jacket to CF15

The only hurricane effect I recall at any Fest was the spike in gas prices (pure gouging!) in response to one some years back - was it Ike in 2008? Yep, all hell broke loose the day we left...rivers running over the highways. I seem to recall Eddie and I just missed being involved in a hydroplane a...

Re: Carverfest Food Thread

In 2008 James and Tom Reitz put together the Fest for the ages. Look through the threads. We ate like Kings.

Re: Why not use PM series in the home??

Ladies and gentlemen, the first human being who can hear the color of an amp's paint! Maybe Jesse would appreciate the sound of Pro amps if he knew how much more they *cost* than their consumer versions?

Re: Hiker "discovers" forgotten town in the Smokies

In the early 1990s, dozens of families fought to keep leases on their vacation properties in Elkmont. For those people, the small Smoky Mountain community was their "home away from home." But that changed when the National Park Service didn't extend their leases, forcing those families to move thei...
