UPDATE Wed, 4 / 11 - I think we could all meet up Friday evening at the Inn - say, 7 pm? (Anyone coming in later, just let us know & we'll be happy to meet everyone!) Also, I think most of us will meet up Saturday morning (I personally want to get up early for some sunrise pics...)

I've been thinking of this one for a while now, as have a few others... Glenda & I always enjoy our trips there - lots of trails, lakes, paddle boats, swimming pools, waterfalls, photo ops, even a nice golf course!!! There are cabins, campsites, and an Inn...cost of Inn is $64 + tax per night (26 non-smoking & 6 smoking rooms available as of today, 5 January). Prices seem to be very reasonable throughout the park.

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Pikeville, TN

Would love to set this up as a GTG & mini-vacation. Our own ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jaxed should be credited for thinking of socializing around a campfire/cookout. Hey! maybe we can put some of those 'meat recipes' to use lol. (yes, tofu consumers are invited too)

I could go on & on about the whole idea, specifics, pics, what to do... it's a really nice place, inexpensive, and I vote we all meet up on the 14th of April (a Saturday). My family might just spend the whole weekend - OH!!! the ride from Dayton to Pikeville is amazing & if anyone happens to ride a motorcycle, it will take your breath away! (yes, I plan to ride mine but it is a very quiet Yamaha, NOT a loud-piped Harley...)

Okay, who's in?!?!?!!?!?
---------------------------------------------------------

The list is subject to change at any time, but this is current as of January 8th...

Depending on a LOT of things, I would tentatively put myself and karmat in the basket for this one.

Hmmmmmm......I am off work that weekend. Not sure you guys want me and my family there though.

I will discuss it with the wife and post for sure possibly by tonight.

Looks about like a 2 hour drive for me.

rex!!!

of course we welcome family! we plan on taking our girls... I kinda envisioned time for both socializing AND photography - probly stay more than one night!

If nothing else, we can all send the kids in one direction & we run the other! lol

I have a "Girls Trip" to Laughlin planned for sometime that month. Not sure of the dates yet but if I'm here in GA, I'll be there for sure. Most likely with tykes and husband in tow. :) I'll post more when I know more, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

Yay GTG!!!! :-)
01/05/2007 05:11:59 PM · #8

I was just kidding. I called the wife and we are coming. I will look at the website tonight and determine if we are camping primitive(tent) or in a cabin. We will most likely be there Friday night and stay till Sunday around noon.

Well, poopie. The little one is scheduled to arrive here around March 21st so we'll likely miss this. I may have to send Cindee along and keep the girls at home just to give her a break. ;)

Did you just say "poopie"??? :-P

We could always have the GTG at your house. You supply the food. I'll bring the drinks.

Note to Jennifer: Do you ever check your e-mail?

I will be there with the kids, hubby and possibly some in-laws :) We tented it last time but maybe we could upgrade to a cabin depending on what the rest of you are planning. I'm so excited, we had such a great time last year :)

Sounds like fun already! I hope every single person that's interested can attend, and if anyone has questions PLEASE just ask.

Very glad to hear of so many particpants and, oh...

GTG's ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE!!!

A few people have already PM'ed me, asking if this is some kind of 'members only' gathering, or only for invitees. Let me be the first to say that DPC has always been a welcoming community, and I'm sure this GTG will be no exception.

Now, on a more personal note...

Rex - I ain't eatin @ Kev's if there's poopie flingin goin on!

Kev - we know your just afraid of another bullseye! (You guys enjoy the new family member & take things easy.) We'll roast some pork/beef/goat/whatever in your honor!

Everyone - you guys are exactly right about wanting to include time for socializing... bravo!

JoJo - since many will travel through Dayton, and the state park doesn't allow alchohol, we're all stopping at your place Friday night for beer & gumbo!!! rofl

<<< runs & hides before vicious cajun woman hurts him

I just called to get prices.

A Room at the Inn - $76/night/no minimum
Two Bedroom Cabin - $110/night/2 night minimum (Sleeps 8)
Three Bedroom Cabin - $150/night/2 night minimum (Sleeps 10)

DPC GTG - Priceless

Hey, I resemble that remark!!


When the time gets closer, lemme know what to bring!! :D

Jojo

Edit to add: Technically, someone COULD stay with us if they don't mind kids :) I DO have 6 bedrooms and the boys have bunk beds... I can put them in my room and have around 6 free beds (5 twin and one full size)... if someone doesn't have the money to pay for the inn or the cabin... I only live about 30 min away...

A few 3 bedroom cabins sound cozy :) Although Rex might take his revenge and post a picture of me first thing in the morning! Yikes, not staying in Rex's cabin!
