    For those that are planning to attend, please post your username and what day you would be arriving in the Maggie Valley area. I'm trying to get an accurate count on doing the Distillery tour that is planned on Thursday (October 3rd) or if there would be enough in attendance to do the activities planned for that day as well.

Seeing a good number of folks I consider friends from this site disappear or no longer have their MM is a bit depressing as well. Meh...just life, right?
    I'll be awaiting your phone call. Let me know via PM if you don't have my mobile number.

    A situation has arisen recently that may affect my ability to attend this event. My elderly mother was placed in home hospice care in late August and her health has had its ups and downs, but for the most part, it has been stabilized. Along with my siblings, I had paid a visit to her in Florida 2 weeks ago to spend some time with her for a week. I had talked with one of my sisters that has been taken care of her yesterday, and and there are indications that she is losing her usually healthy appetite of eating her meals due to the organs in her body are starting to shut down. I am not saying that this event is cancelled, but if I should receive the phone call that my mother had passed away within the next 2 weeks from today, I'm going to have to bow out of this event on short notice. For those that had planned to attend the Marauder run, I would hope that you would still be attending it and the outline that was on the original post on activities planned for this event would serve as a guideline on what to do during the three days that are planned. I'll be posting here on any updates of my status on attending this. I would recommend that no one else that has plan to attend cancels because of this.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. Still hoping to join up with your group at some point.

    Spent several months in Florida last fall/winter trying to get my sister and brother in law into some kind of supervised situation. He clearly belongs in a nursing home while she clearly belongs in an assisted living arrangement. State and local agencies are of no help - limited help from one private agency only. Police substation located in their crime ridden slum apartment complex know she is driving without a driver's license (she's never had a DL as she would never qualify). Too many hoops to jump through for the Baker Act and only one attorney agreed to take the case (contacted at least a dozen), treating the situation as a joke. Said legal costs would go well into 5 figures. I've done all that I can there and can't bring them here. What a mess.

    Sorry to hear about your Mother. You do what you need to do and do not worry about the rest of us. My Dad is still at home and has in home care but I am not sure how much longer that will last. It took us forever to get him to wear one of those emergency call buttons. You take care and we will see you when we see you.

    I got in touch with a representative of the Elevated Mountain Distillery concerning setting up an appointment for the tour on Thursday October 3, and they told me whenever we arrive at the distillery for the tour that they will accommodate the group upon arrival. If the tour guide is busy with a previous group, the wait time will only be a few minutes. As long as our group arrive by 6:30 p.m., we should be good to go.

    I just arrived a half hour ago at the hotel in Maggie Valley. The Elevated Mountain Distillery is virtually across the street from the hotel. It was 78 degrees at the time that I checked in, an improvement from lower 90's during the drive over.

    Well this answers my question. "Will you be able to make it this year? " We should see you tomorrow evening.

    It was an honor to have
    my ASS kicked by you!
    Rest In Peace!
