You can usually park most anywhere. I usually park at a bank at the foot of the hill which goes up by the area where all of the activities take place. They have a sign which says "Customers Only," but I have parked there for 4 years running and haven't been towed or got a ticket yet! biggrin.gif That bank parking lot puts you right in the middle of everything. It is on main street where the parade takes place, and its just down the hill from all of the good stuff! Josie (3Ravens) e-mailed me wanting to know where we could meet before it all begins. Would you like to meet us there too? If so, I'll let you and Anthony (Aaediwen) know where just as soon as we decide on something.

By the way, is anyone bringing a camera? I don't have one, but I would be willing to go halves with someone on the cost of film and developing if they would get double prints and give me a set!

Hey my friends!

Here are my thoughts on Saturday.

Take I-81 to Radford Exit 105.
Travel roughly a mile to two miles up that road until you see a small shopping center called Central Square.
Look for the guy in the hat that looks like something out of the Cat in the Hat, except its green. That would be me! smile.gif Plan to meet around 8:30 am.
After the Meet and Greet there, we'll run up to Hardee's for a biscuit.
Then we'll go over to where I usually park in the SunTrust bank parking lot and wiat for the parade which usually starts at 10 am.
After the parade we'll walk up the small hill to the festival area and start looking around at the vendors.
The concert by the main band - Gaelic Storm this year - doesn't usually start until around 1 or 2pm (haven't had a yhance yet to look at their website for actual concert time)
Sometime, either before the main concert or after, we can go to Macadoos or wherever everyone wants to go for lunch.
Then we can go back to the festival until time to go home.

Let me know if this looks okay. Also let me know if you need my cell phone number.

By the way, is anyone bringing a camera? I don't have one, but I would be willing to go halves with someone on the cost of film and developing if they would get double prints and give me a set!

I can't wait to meet you all! smile.gif

Have a safe trip!

Hello everyone!

I just got back from the festival, and I have to say that Gaelic Storm was.... well.....

AWESOME!

If you ever get the chance to see this band live, don't miss it! Believe me, you won't regret it!

When I am able, I'll try to post a pic or two for you!

Can't wait to meet you, dear! smile.gif

Anyway, I think that's the only pic I'm gonna post for now. I was only using a little disposable camera, so my pics didn't turn out all that great. Aaediwen, however was using a very nice digital, so rather than post my rather poor pics, I'm gonna wait and let hime post more when he gets home!

I'm home!!!!! What a blast! smile.gif

I've got about some 300 MB of pics to go through. Some will be crap, some will need editing. And then there's a pic each of a couple of wierdos we know that will need editing for GP wink.gif.

And Wiz! I snapped a couple shots out the window as we passed a little town on the way home, that I think you know quite a bit about. Can't see much of the town in the pics though.

Hey buddy! Glad to see you made it home safe! Well, did you guys make it to BTs to see the band? If so how was it?

I just gotta tell you guys that I had an AWESOME time! The day could have been terrible and the band horrible and I STILL would have had a good time, simply because I got to meet my good buddies Aaediwen and 3Ravens! They made my day!

But luckily, despite threatening looking clouds and chilly winds, we didn't get a single drop of rain! And the band was simply out of this world! I bought a Gaelic Storm CD and had it autographed. I also got a t-shirt but I'm afraid I goofed with it. I got a large but should've gotten an X-Large. I can wear it, but with all of this extra weight I've picked up lately, its a little tight. And if it shrinks even the tiniest amount when I wash it, I won't be able to wear it at all. Guess its time to start that diet I've been meaning to work on!

hey, I wear large smile.gif

Yeah, we did go over to BT's We got there some time before the band did and so we were a few tables away. I did go over and chat with them a bit though while nusing a Guinness. They're really great. It was a crowded corner though, so I didn't hang around. I got a pic of the table where they were gathered, but it didn't come out well. I think I'll see what I can salvage from it.

I'm liking tracks 2 and 9 from "Special Reserve" biggrin.gif

"But it's not what you're thinkin' it wasn't the drinkin'! This man died o' tirst!"
