Wouldn't it be nice to be able to show to Bob one you'd built from parts!

yeah, it would.... It'd be even more fun to bring him a box of parts, and make sure he had something to do for the week up in the woods !!! :lol:

Confirm your reservation in cabin 12. Thought it was all set up for you, Toymaker, and myself to be in 12 like last year. I've already paid for my room.

Thanks, Frank.

Hello Frank, I has reserved a Treehouse for you and your wife. However, this is only to be reserved for a period of one week. Monday, June the 16th I have to give Brandy a complete update as to how many of the cabins are going to be taken by Carverfest attendees. I believe that makes 5 women, possibly 6 women that will be attending this year's Carverfest. So, please let me know whether it's a no-go or a go by the 16th. ;)

Let me clarify further for all that are considering attending.......I have a temporary "hold" on ALL, yes ALL available cabins located within the mile long cul-de-sac. I repeat ALL cabins have been placed on a temporary hold. On Monday, June 16th I need to tell Brandy what cabins we will need and what cabins we don't need.

So, if you are planning on attending and staying within the main group of cabins you need to let me know by Monday the 16th!!!


If you snooze, you will lose. Any non-reserved cabin come the 16th will go back for availability to the general public! I will have no control as to availability after that point!!!

Re: Cabin Reservations for Carverfest '08.....

I have 1 room left in Cabin 9. If you have any questions PM me or Tom. I will be there with my son sharing a room so the other is open for someone else. I go by engtaz on Polkforum,tweakcityaudio,AV123, and other forms. It is going to be a great Carverfest.

Re: Cabin Reservations for Carverfest '08.....

Just a quick review. As of this post, we only have 1 3BR, 1 Treehouse and some openings in Watershed 6. All other cabins have been taken. There are some folks, probably 6-7 that have also expressed interest in going as well but have not confirmed. At this point, if you are considering attending you might want to make up your mind fairly quick.

FesteLV, I should have an update for you tonight. Most likely you will be staying in Watershed 6, but this has not been confirmed.

Yep, 318 curves and 100 cop cars waiting for you to break the 20-35 mph speed limit. The fun lies in guessing which curves don't have a radar trap. O:)

Ok, I have finally found that railroad museum I told you folks about last year! For those that are coming to Carverfest and are into model trains, this will be a "must do" during your visit. This is the largest collection of Lionel trains in North Carolina. Check out some of the photos....

Over here we hear about the bike wrecks all the time. This morning it was the guy they found well after the fact, along a curve somewhere. They said it looked like he's slid into and along a guard rail for quite a ways. Severed a leg completely off. The speedometer was stuck at 80mph!! Guess that didn't work out so well!

Fun, yes...scary, ...if your smart!

Valentine 1, don't leave home without it :-) It's the best LEO detection/revenue gathering defense $$ can buy.

I rode the Dragon the day I arrived at CarverFest '07 on a Honda Interceptor I borrowed from a friend who lives in Tellico Springs. She was kind enough to let me ride her baby for the afternoon. Got a T-shirt to prove it.
