Carverfest 2012 location, directions and airport information

Post by treitz3 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:30 pm

Here is a direct link that will make CarverFest the DESTINATION, all you have to do is fill in your Departure address
Google CarverFest Directions


This link is a compiled Google Earth mapping of the CarverFest cabin locations.

If you already have Google Earth, just download the file, unzip it, and the map should import directly into Google Earth for you.


If you do not have Google Earth, here is the link to the free download.

ENJOY!

Here is travel information from the somewhat local airports

Asheville, NC (AVL) LINK

Charlotte, NC (CLT)LINK

Atlanta, GA (ATL)LINK

Knoxville, TN (TYS)LINK



The closest airport is Asheville, NC (airport code AVL) LINK, which is about 70 miles from Bryson City.
Asheville is a very small and easy airport to travel through, and is serviced by the following airlines: USAir, Delta, United, Northwest. However, because Asheville is not a major hub for any airline, it may be difficult to find a direct flight from your departure city.

If you fly USAir or Delta, you will likely connect in Charlotte, NC (CLT)LINK or Atlanta, GA (ATL)LINK, respectively. By the time you layover in one of these cities, fly to Asheville, and then drive the final 70 miles, it might be quicker to just end your air travel in either Charlotte or Atlanta and drive the rest of the way (about 3 hours from either airport). Rental car variety and bargains may be greater in these major cities as well.

A secondary city to consider is Knoxville, TN (TYS)LINK, but don't be fooled by the apparent close proximity. Knoxville is through the Smokies and the drive is slow, difficult and unpredictable depending on time of day and season.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I tried to call James about that but he's about as hard to come by as an oriental with a full beard nowadays.

Who is that with the coffee mug and the shades in the front row? I believe I have only met 4 of those that came originally. In the back row on the left that is F1nut I believe, spoke to him on the phone once.

No, that would be ME. Jesse didn't make it to the first CF.

Jesse's in this one; he has his hands on the rail, just above Bob's signature:

Yeah, Jesse [F1nut] didn't make that one. The total should be 7 if everybody who says that they will be attending comes.

Skip [aka, Sasquatch]
DaveS
Treitz3 [me]
Dreamer
Ray
James
and last but definitely not least, Thall [Tom Hall]

Tim, Gary, /mx, maddhousemouse and Gary's son [who is now married] will be the only original CF members that will not be in attendance. Well, that and maybe my wife Kim. She actually was there for the 1st CF but she left before we got around to actually taking a photo. We haven't done anything crazy like building the "wall of sound" since the 1st CF. Well, maybe build an outdoor rig at Jerry and Niki's place.....we sure have pulled a lot of pranks and shenanigan's though. :D
