Up and gone, before the crack of dawn. I know trailering is lame, but I was short on vacation time, so Mike(Speedjunkie) came by the house and picked me up. He was so excited for Shovelfest that he bought a new trailer and a new truck. We left at 3:30 Wednesday morning hoping to miss the major traffic times and not set-up in the dark.
Well, this little detour and stop did cost us some time. George Dickel Distillery near Tullahoma. Actually not that far from Jack Daniel's place, if you have time to do them both.
The tour ends with a tasting of course. I am fond of No. 12, drinks like a cognac in my opinion.
You guessed it, we about couldn't find the place and we set up camp in the dark.
Thursday morning, only the die hards around. The Things and their Knucklehead.
The campsite was pretty nice. There are several huge rallies held here.
Kentrrr was here, too. He's now retired and RVing full time.
It didn't rain on the campsite any though the weekend, but the morning dews were amazingly heavy
It's not Shovelfest unless George is cooking up a ton of breakfast.
And Brian won't turn down a meal.
Remember the Shovelfesters that aren't with us anymore. Rest in peace, Bevy.
Cory, Mike, Super Dave, and Dennis.
Off to ride the country side with Mike.
Stop for some glamor shots.
