Oh-Tay...........so far, this is what is happing at Cave City, KY:  Here's a link for the curious, http://www.cavecity.com/
 
9/2/09 Wednesday   6:30pm - 7:30pm  Cook Out at Econo Lodge
 
9/3/09 Thursday         8:30am  Corvette Plant Tour
                                   * When we get through with this, it's off to Lunch and crash at the
                                      Ice Cream Barn in Franklin, KY.  After that, it's a nice cruise to the Jam
                                      House.  Whatever time that ends, we head back to the Motel.
 
                                      6:00pm  Dinner (don't know where, but I'll come back to this thread to
                                                                   update my ignorance).
 
That's all I know for now, but keep watching this post for "EDITS."  Thanks everyone and have a "Fiberglass' kinda day.......LOL

I've been following the "caravan chat" on the museum site and see that rooms are starting to open up in BG.  Any word if that is happening at the ol' econo-lodge?  Last time I talked with someone there in Cave City (a couple of weeks ago), I think I had a bit of a language barrier issue with the guy on the other end of the phone.  Anyway, see you guys Thursday PM after our caravan checks-in at the museum.

From there I will head north on 31W to Cave City and the Econo Lodge.
I think I might be hungry for some stingrayjim grub by then.Clap
