More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Not positive, but I think it's about the only motel in town.  Planning to be there also.  Had a great time last year.

Out of curiocity Kathy, how long a drive (in minutes please) is the drive, I only ask cause I took a ride with Bud to a supermarket one time, think it was near there but seemed a bit of a haul.

Funny story, as we got out of the truck, Bud hands me a sub-compact pocket pistol and said "Keep dat wid jah Misduh John!" my only reply was, I thought were were just buying chips and soda!

Oh how my thoughts on personal protection has changed. If NJ was a state where conceal carry were allowed, there is no doubt I would. The idea seams so far difference that back at Bud One and two, and in a good way.

NOTE: All Bud imitations are on flattery of Bud's unique college educated phonetic spelling - too all of us who love him, when we read Bud's posts, we hear him talking to us!

it's not far.  maybe 10 miles?  it will take us longer because chris drives more slowly....

and yes, i read that you want it in minutes, but it's not many.  :-)  hope that's good enough.

John, just be careful as she is a deerslayer behind the wheel.... :-D :-D

Wish I could come this year, but after missing work in February for knee surgery and associated bills that come with it , I probably won't be able to make it.

Probably 15 minutes at most John. Last year we were ducking tornado debris the first couple days.

I imagine enough people will be staying there??? If Chris and Kathy want to get away early, I'm sure I'd get a ride. I wouldn't mind a cot set up in the back room by Bud's fridge, our bunk room at work (used for snow emergencies only of course - lol) isn't much more than a closet with a blanket and pillow.

I'm coming to see everyone, not too concerned with amenities at some swanky center city Macon luxury hotel, who am I Joan Rivers  :-D

NOTE: I shaved my beard a few weeks ago, I had it 6 months. Today, I start it again, I want to come to Bud 6 prepared, and I'm amazed at how little amount of hair that is when I shave it off, but it makes me look totally different. I only shaved it for a respirator fit test at work, now I have a reason to grow it back!
