Nashville here we come
7/2/06, 6:24am

Heading for Nashville and the WingDing there til Friday. 1000s of motorcycles and twice that of people. We're staying at the Gaylord which they say is wonderful.

Any of you been there? Any suggestions of things not to miss? We have two tours booked....One on a paddle boat and a bus tour of the plantations.

The only thing Im dreading is the 98...in both temps and humidity. Yikes!

Yep, be prepared for big time humidity.

Never been to Nashville, but Janice and Matt have as a landing spot for the hour drive to my brother in law's place in W. KY.

I was there once for a radio convention..stayed at the Grand Ol' Opry hotel. My impression was that Nashville is...flat! REALLY flat.

Didn't do any tourist things while I was there..but the people sure were friendly.

I have been to Nashville, once, upon arriving at Ft, Campbell we were told we could spend 5 days in town, (Nashville, Or spend 5 days doing K.P. ) we were very early, reporting for duty, I chose TOWN, we had a good time, stayed at the Noel Hotel,(have no idea if it still exists,), very close to Printers Alley, at least I think that is the name, could be Painters, anyway that, (the Alley) is where the Clubs are.

It caters to Country music, not my thing.
I saw a very long line there and thought that would be a good place to meet "young people", they were offended when I asked "what the line was for", it was the line for the "grand old oprey".
The country music museum was interesting, probably much better now, a lot of it was about Elvis, whom I happen to like.
The state Govt. offices and legislature were also interesting, other than that, take a nice trip over to the Tennesee River, they love "holiday time".

In retrospect I did not mind the weather, I was there from May to November, I did enjoy a phenomenon I had not previously witnessed, and have not witnessed since, other than "Disneyland", Fireflies.

Hey Murph,

I'm not sure when you are leaving for Nashville. I hope you enjoy your visit there. I played in the ASA Southeastern Championships there a few years back. They have some world class softball facilities there that I can attest to. I don't remember much about the city beyond that. I know we had a lot of fun there during our stay. I have a friend that has just moved to Nashville within the past three weeks and I will more than likely be making a tip that way when I get my leave balances back to acceptable levels.

Just have a few as we pack up to leave Nashville. If youve never been to the Gaylord in Nashville its worth a stop by but do not stay here! With over 2800 rooms they are constantly overwhelmed. Last Saturday immigration (bless their pea pickin hearts)did a raid here and hauled away 2/3 of the housekeeping crew. Need I say more. They keep runnihg out of food in the food courts and the lines are long everywhere.

However with some 41 acres most of which is waterfalls..walkways... and a Starbucks under an enormous glass dome kept at a comfortable 70 degrees it was a delight to spend some time here when not in a line.

The highlight was the plantation tour and paddle boat tours which were just awesome! Steeped in history....the Belle Meade Mansion was an unforgetable tour......you felt like youd been taken back in time.

Lots of religion at every turn. Out of 20 channels 7 were religious channels....and the religious store in the mall was packed. But the clincher was when we left Tony Romas full of great bbq ribs the other day the waitress said...Blessings be with you! What if I were a muslin? Does she care?

All in all a great experience.......and we're home tonight.

Sounds neat! I hope the heat and humidity weren't too bad.

I like that the waitress wished you that, but that's just me. Sounds like Pepperdine

Ugh! I don't think I'll be visiting there any time soon. I remember growing up in the Bible Belt. I got enough of that back then.

Sounds interesting. I've never had that problem but then, there aren't 2800 rooms in a Motel 4...and McDonald's seems to ALWAYS have food!

Welcome home..we saved some heat for you!

I found it to be very oppressive. Little kids and teens all had Praise the Lord t-shirts on.....Dont get me wrong....we go way off the deep end in the other direction here......but seems to me theres a happy medium.

Cant imagine being raised there......Its like being brain washed...Not thinking for yourself but being a follower. Not a good situation IMHO.

Thanks BB. Nothin like home.......At least this heat is dry. Interesting trip....One thing for sure Southern folks are thee friendliest people. Everyone says hi like theyve known you all their lives....and that slow drawal is kinda soothing after a while.

Welcome home Murph. I hope you enjoyed the Nashville area. It has been a hot and humid summer so far this year.

I was raised in Omaha, Nebraska. It isn't right in the middle of the Bible Belt, but it's pretty close and there was definitely a lot of those kinds of sentiments and beliefs. Of course, my parents were religious nuts anyway, especially my mother. I can think of better ways to be raised.

Thanks Robert.......Actually we were extremely lucky with the weather. It poured down rain the second day and wasnt bad at all the rest of the week. Of course most everything we did was inside.

And...like being in Nashville you notice we are the only ones talking here. Dont get me wrong........good values are important in raising kids...We were very active in church when our boys were growing up...just not to the point where "the word" was almighty.

Do you think it made a difference in your values?
