I sure wish I it was still going on. I was so great to hang around with all the good people that come.

Ditto here; it was great to see everyone (again), but the time was just too damn short. When we're all retired, maybe we can just collectively buy a big lodge in the Smokies & stay there full time doing year-round CF~ :D

My family has an annual get together at my brother's place in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, on Labor Day weekend. It puts a kink in my CarverFest plans every year because they expect me there but I want to go to CF....& I can't do both.

Hehe, I was actually thinking of that earlier on today. A little mini-fest, GTG if you will, for the hardcore folks or anybody else who would like to attend. The only thing is that I do not want it to interfere with the main 'fest. Y'all are like family to me and it would be a vacation for folks to come and see "family" on the mountaintop without the worry of breaking down the entire rig and bringing it....unless one feels up to it. I was thinking maybe a rig or two that folks volunteer to bring.

We'll see.

It's convenient to me [relatively, compared to some of y'all] but something like this would be inconvenient to many others. Even if it's just a couple of folks and one rig? There is nothing stopping us from making it happen.
