    Default Chattanooga-Tennessee River Gorge Run, 7.31

    Isaac here, so for those of you who haven't been monitoring the noise under the general "Where is Tex theme", here it is and feel free to catch up...

    http://www.donzi.org/forum/showthrea...-s-new-Cruiser

    And the end result has been the genesis of a little river run up the Tennesee River Gorge towards Chattanooga and back.
    Jill and I ran this a couple of weeks ago as part of a poker run out of Hale's Bar in Jasper, Tn. as a warm-up to the AOTH run.
    Hedgehog and his lovely bride Christina hosted us and RedDog on their big Chris Roamer, which did not suck. Nope, not at all.

    So we have interest in this little impromptu run from:

    -Your's truly and better half Jill, 22 Classic
    -Bill and Christina, 18X
    -Randy and Barb, 22 Crit
    -Jim, 22 Crit
    -Scott and Heidi, 22 Crit
    -Cliff and Di, 22 Crit
    -Byron and Jill, 22 Classic
    -Jerry, 22 Classic
    -Lippy, 20 Cigarette

    So there you are, so far.

    Hales Bar is a nice little spot with RV sites, plenty of slips, easy ramp facilties, and a pretty sweet row of water front floating cabins viewing the goings-on out on the Tennessee River.

    So who else wants to do this? Could be something pretty cool and Bill needs to grab some places for us to stay.

    Softy...

    Yeah, and the water slide is a real crowd pleaser.

    They have one and two bedroom floating cabins available and one and three bedroom non-floating. If you are coming, I would recommend reserving something. It is usually no problem but sometimes they seem to book up on random weekends. I did not talk to my usual person so I will get some more intel tomorrow. I am heading down this evening.

    We have a number of options for fun. I was thinking about having everyone to the Roamer on Fri night. I will check on the community room for Sat night. I will also looking dock space for lunch on Sat. I am probably taking the Roamer to Chatt on tomorrow night for dinner and drinks. I can check with Marine Max for the summer schedule since they manage the city docks.

    Always good to have two boats.

    If we could get a decent commitment, I can get a block at a reduced rate. Let me know. Either way, it is not expensive.

    Burning the candle at both ends. That is pretty good. Yep, pretty much an excuse. Falls on deaf ears from a guy that hits 12-15 hour days looking at some largest bank credits in the nation. Yeah, I run from NY to Cali too. As a matter of fact I am in Puerto Rico now and they don't fly me in to look at the kiddy stuff. Boats? yeah I have a few yet can still check in.

    The guy that never left......

    Now bring back the Real Last Real Texan. Summer is here dang it!

    I would not bust you if you could not handle it. Now bring that beast up. Better yet, give me a couple of weeks and I will join you!

    Perfect. I can see the fireboats spraying water and the fireworks show as we leave Nickajack Lock. A welcome reception will follow at A dock.

    This sounds like a good trip. Where would all stay? Hales bar or downtown Chatt? Friday/ Sat nights?
