This was perhaps the best SE Rally ever - a great group of people all enjoying each others company and a really nice park as well.  And all the first-timers enjoyed themselves and plan to attend future rallies!

Tonight we are ensconced in a nearly empty COE park in KY, the Wax Recreation Area on the Nolis River/lake, about 15 miles from Mammoth Cave.  Huge 50A sites and we even have good satellite reception. It's far off the beaten path, though - about 15 miles and I was beginning to think the road would become a trail before we got to the park!

The Grand Ole Opry was splendid - everybody who went had a great time!  It was a bit strange - the show is broadcast live on radio (WSM - the Opry's own station) and one hour of it is on tv as well. They do radio commercials as matter of course during the entire show and during the tv segments you can see the camera men on & around the  stage doing their thing. And the stage hands changing the stage set-up between each act.  They also show the audience on the tv, but we weren't close enough to the stage to be seen on camera.

Even though we had "nose bleed" seats in the balcony, we had a 8+ foot tv screen near us so we could always see the stage up close when we wanted. And the audio was, well, like being there!


I always enjoy watching the backup chorus. Carol Lee leads the 4 member group and you can watch her hand signals for changes in pitch or other musical variations. She has even written a book on it. I believe her mother was there before her. Quite entertaining for me.

Sorry we missed your departure. We reallly enjoyed your cooking. It was great.

As always Gary and Nancy were the greatest rally host and we really enjoyed it. It was really great to see old friends
and to make new ones.
