Stopped and talked to Troy for a little bit today. With the campgrounds being closed, I'm going to look into two other leads and let you guys know what might be viable in the next couple of days.

I need to hit up Turkey Bay, I've never been. Sounds like that might be a good plan (and hunter free too).

2012 690

Not that anyone is in the market, but I happened by Castle today, and they have a lonely 2012 690 on the floor. Normally 10,299 marked down to 8,999. Slightly under used retail for a brand new machine. Might be the time to make a deal.

If it is still there Monday when I get home from TX it could be mine

Okay, so with the uncertainty of Piney being open on the second weekend of November, I've looked into some other non-federal camping areas that Troy and I discussed last night. Fat Daddy's doesn't offer tent camping currently, and may be closed anyway. Paris Landing, however, is open, close to LBL, and cheap. The "basic loop", sites 48-61, is completely open at the moment, and is $28 for 2 nights after fees.

https://tnstateparks.itinio.com/paris-landing

FOR NOW, we don't have a set place that we are going to call base camp, yet. We are going to wait just a bit longer and see if Piney reopens. If it does, we will try to get in there.

Just putting this out there, and seeing what people think. After we get to the point that we have started booking camp sites somewhere, I'll see about starting a new thread for the non-event.

If you need a co-conspirator for Turkey Bay, I don't get lost much any more. As long as it isn't Sunday Oct 13th. because that is when the Benefit run for Aubrey Ferrell takes off from the Cal Ripkin baseball field parking lot at Milan City Park @ 1:15 P.M.

I would bet Turkey Bay is closed until the stupidity with the Gov't shutdown is over.

Fishtale lodge just down from Paris landing is great too. The season is slowing down here so they should have rooms available.
