Seriosly we are driving in Susan's Chry 300 (wish we could go in the Mustang GT but Susan does not do standerd) and doing the half way at Memphis. Hy 40 all the way. So I know I won't be assembling the speaker stands as I will need to pack them. I would like to bring my C1-Tube amp- and a Pair of book shelf speakers so we will have music to listen to. Susan likes a lot of towels for her morning shower? We like to grind our morning coffee. Gonna need a lot of big bowls and pans for the cook up. Gonna need to bring my tool set for the speaker assembly. Gonna need clothes for 5 days. Gonna need more food for the stay. Booz Ice??
I feel like my dress is over my head!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?? or Not Bring?
Thanks for helping a newbe out thats driving a long ways and has not been out of home in 4 years
OTD, I would advise against a U-Haul, I doubt it would make it up either of the hill's driveways... James & Dave bring an 8x5 box trailer every year & its difficult getting it up the hill.
As far as what to bring, if you're planning on cooking, definately BYO cookware, the cabins are not really stocked with equipment for more than 6 people & the treehouses are set up for a single couple.
Bring your equipment, of all brands, everyone loves to see new toys, as long as its not Bose.
Walking shoes, a flshlight & bugspray would definately be great ideas to bring, the cabins are not far apart, but the only paved road is one of the entrances.
CASH! Cash is always a great thing to bring, you never know who is selling what and you never know when there's something ya just can't go home without! :P
On another note, James talked to Nate at Watershed, who is overseeing CarverFest, a few weeks ago.
Extra linens & toiletries were among the list of improvements for our stay, along with extra fire wood and starter supplies.
Nate has been very helpful with this year's Fest.
