more lodging info:
I was graciously taken in by Braden and company in their rental. I really look forward to meeting new people and putting faces/names to screen names. Their rental starts on Friday, but it looks like I'll have to be there Thursday evening for the noob orientation. Anyway, I just got off the phone with Betty at the Marlinton Motor Inn (1-800-354-0821), and they do have rooms available. Thursday night is only $54. Just another option for folks.
