"Homecoming" ???

I was just reading some of the posts in the ODSS forum, John( the Grand Pooh Bear) suggests that we "Bolters" plan a gathering closer to our own neck of the woods. Has anyone given any thought to this? A place that would be relatively central for us "Southern Bolters"? A date perhaps to align with their gathering at the ATHS in Maryland?

I'm open to suggestions just so we can start planning.

You get something planned and I may just join you. That will depend on location and the date that it will be held.
Keep an eye on the Heartland Bolter’s, we are also thinking about a May/June gathering in Mid Missouri.
Also one in Iowa. Then the big Reunion in KC this September.

Grand Pooh Bear, I like that name for John!

John, I was hoping to get more input from some of the other "Southern Bolters". I am willing to travel and maybe make a trip out of it for my Wife and I. I suppose that with all that is going on planning a gathering isn't a high priority for many.

I'm familiar with the Knoxville / Gatlinburg area, spent some time at the McGhee Tyson Air Guard Base. I was thinking a state park or something similar?

PaPa Joe, we started a locator map for the Southern Bolters, it never really caught on I guess. There are 2 versions of the map the first was just us loading members locations, the second was actually a websearch Map. The Goggle map is on this forum and you should be able to load your location to that.

There are plenty of folks in the South it's just that we are spread out over about 7 States.

There is a chevy truck only event somewhere in Tennessee on the 9th of July , do any of the southern bolters attend this event . I have parts here I need to get to Tennessee and I'd be happy to meet any other bolters there , If I'm allowed across the border by then that is .

good planning is no substitute for dumb luck

Here is the all GM truck Nationals in Tennessee link.

Edit: This would be a great place to meet up this summer for the Southern Bolter's.
Too early to tell because there is not much info yet. But If I can make it, I'll have the Stovebolt awning with me to show who we are.
