Karen...

This is THE main reason I didn't want to give out the info on the hotel or the location.

There are no dates set!

We have not completed a contract with the hotel!

Do Not for any reason call the hotel for reservations or for information...one call could raise our room rates by ten or twenty dollars a night.

As soon as a contract is signed...we will post!

Craig...

I have driven...exit the north end of DFW on 114...go west to I-35W,
turn north and arrive at the hotel in 35 minutes. A lot depends on traffic and cops...we will arrange for transportation.

How can anyone arrange for transportation when people will be flying in from 50 states and maybe 6 different countries...at 30 different times on 5 different days?
It was a big enough problem in Austin. It isn`t fair to expect certain people to spend their time driving backwards and forwards....especially not if the airport is an hour`s drive away.

I much agree with my dear "girl-friend" JACKIE.

We are many who have been so lucky to have someone who have pick me / us up in a airport.

What we can do, I don`t know.

I like as "always" maybe to arrival some days before - time will tell more.
Maybe also WANTED to make a EXTRA trip to maybe Nashville to "say hello" for some extra days after THE GATHERING or...

I am almost 100% shure BREE WILSON STONE and JONMARK very much wanted me to come around Nashville to say hello - hi! hi!
NO silent days for this TWO youngsters!

Have now 25.000 FREE bonus point from Delta Airlines, so now I have to found out, how "far" it will, can bring me around in US of A.



sincerely

Jackie...

Transportation could pose a problem, but where there is a will there is a way. We will cross that bridge when we get the room rates and dates worked out. The hotel does have a van...no James Bond, but a van. If we can save as much as we hope to save on room rates, hiring a couple of vehicles and folks to drive them is not out of the question...cutting a deal with Yellow Cab is another option. Lots of thought has gone into this situation and much more is needed. You can bet that we can work it out!

Sir William...I'm sure that Mack will drop by...he's on the City Councel and one of my oldest friends.

driving backwards..."

I couldn't agree more. And it's dangerous, too.

But ... Greyhound has found Gainsville, and that's all that matters.

Now, I must concentrate everything on finding the 'dineros' to gettin' there.

Mister, can you spare a dime?

I feel that the transportion can and will be worked out for the good of all, I know from experience that it has taken me over an hour to get to the hotel in Austin via the "hotel van". So a ride from DFW to Gainsville is no big deal, for me.... I also know from experience that we here on the Porch take care of eachother and all will be done to set up a safe, comfortble ride to Gainsville. Where there is a will there is a way, we have overcome much worse things on this Porch than this transportion issue. I for one am going to trust in the proccess........

Love,
Judy

If they do, I'll buy the first round.

The new location sounds good and porchers who want to come in a few days early might enjoy visiting the Fort Worth Stockyards. It is a historic district in north Fort Worth that is very easy to fall in love with. Just ask Laska Shirley or Lady V...they came, they saw and they conquered, and had fun doing it.

We have a great little commuter train, The Trinity Railway Express, that runs between south Fort Worth and Dallas. http://www.trinityrailwayexpress.org/

And we have a vintage steam engine train that goes from the Stockyards to Grapevine. Last time I saw country singer Johnny Seay (an old friend of Roy's) he was one of the engineers.

Also in the Stockyards there is an Ernest Tubb record shop where, last time I looked, Joe's book was for sale.

Just some thoughts.

"Just ask Laska Shirley or Lady V...they came, they saw and they conquered, and had fun doing it."

Dorothy, yes, it was a grand time and the first time I was exposed to the real "trouble maker"
While sitting on a bench outside the White Elephant watching the Texas cowboys stroll by, we were greeted with "good evening LADIES"..........hmmmmmm An elderly man walked by and while chatting, asked if he could sing a song...well, he and Lady V sang all the "oldies"...not that I knew the songs
Every once in a while he would sing me a 'love song'....heh heh
As I remember back I have to ask "what in the world did I get myself into?" Well, it was the best time I had had in a loooong time and gave me one of the dearest traveling buddys I could have ever wanted. And it hasn't stopped....
I believe it was in Ft Worth where she went from being a Princess to the Queen...just ask her

Lee, to ease your mind, Susie and I have talked about this coming year's gathering. She is working on it and will talk about it as things move along.

The knack for getting things done runs in the family.

She will post when she finds out more.
