Never been to it. It probably wouldn't be a bad way to spend the day.

I was thinking of going Friday, when it wouldn't be full of "Harry Homeowner" types. (Although "Harriet Homeowner" might be there...)

I was gonna go, but then I got a shrub trimming job for that Friday. payup
A big place, on the Holston river. What a view. Mountains on one side, river on the other side.

The Holston was in the movie, "The River" a few years back.

The reason I was asking about it is, I don't think I'll be going to GIE this year, and so I'm looking for some local things to go to instead.
My wife will be out of town during the kentucky thing in October, so I won't be going to that either.
I think there's something going on in Knoxville later in the year.
Maybe later I'll start a thread about green industry goings on.
I met a few of my internet friends last year at GIE, and enjoyed it immensely.

Crawdad,
You should have just driven up from Tenn to Va. and gone to this. If is not a far trip from where you are and it is a great show. I spent many, many years of my life right near Abingdon in the town of Emory.
