    All,  

    I’m looking forward to the Hiwassee River Rafting trip on Sunday, August 26, 2018.  The Hiwassee river is fed from TVA’s Apalachia reservoir. The water is fairly cool year round. On a 90+ degree day it feels great to get into the river.  NOTE - you will be getting wet.

    The trip down the river will usually take 2-1/2 – 3-1/2 depending on how much “play time” you want on the river. If you want to play on the river, reserve a Duckie.  There isn't much playing in a tube or a raft. We will plan to be on the river at around 2:30PM. The later in the day the less crowded the river… a good thing. Here is the itinerary:

    • Meet at Webbs Store 1:30 PM to sign waivers and pick up gear. If anyone wants to tube we will have to leave Webbs by 2:00PM. Rafts and Duckies/ Fun yacks can leave as late at 4:00PM.
    • Get on the river by 2:30PM (ish)
    • Arrive back at Webbs at 5:30PM
    • Eat at Flip-Flop Burgers located just across the river from Webbs 6:00 or so. They close at 8:00PM on Sunday.

    If I can get an Idea of what folks may want to take down the river that would be great. I also need a final count of folks who plan to go, don’t want to leave anyone behind.

    We have 24 CSC Bourbonites headed to Louisville, KY September 7-9, 2018. The available spots on this trip filled in four (4) days; I do have a waiting list. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please let me know.

    Besides the distilleries we will be visiting (Bulleit , Angels Envy, Kentucky Peerless, & Jim Beam, I am trying to contact Rabit Hole), below are other interesting facts and places to see in Louisville, KY.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Whether you take it neat, with a splash, on the rocks or in cocktail, bourbon aficionados know there's no place like Louisville, Ky., to wet your whistle.

    We  are headed to that gracious, Southern city on the Ohio River, we have our passports. The recently expanded Urban Bourbon Trail has 27 bars and restaurants, mostly downtown, but trailblazers can "pick six," getting a passport stamp at each establishment to become Official Bourbon Country Citizens.

    Citizenship entitles imbibers to many rights and privileges. OK, not really. They just get a T-shirt and a certificate, but after reaching a state of bourbon-induced bliss, nobody cares.

    So, what exactly is bourbon? Here's a little tutorial for the uninitiated.

    All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Bourbon is American-made whiskey that must be distilled from a mash that is 51 percent corn and aged in charred, new white oak barrels for a minimum of two years, imbuing it with that lovely golden-brown color. Other whiskey can age in re-used barrels

    Louisville is more than just a world class city brimming with art, culture, food, bourbon, and the friendliest people you’ll meet anywhere. It’s a big city with a small town feel, as the locals like to say.  Fall is one of the best times to visit Louisville. It’s not just the crisp autumn air and crunchy colorful leaves that brings me back year after year, but also the unique festivals and events, bourbon tasting, museum touring, and a theatre scene that rivals New York City. Here’s a list of things to do in Louisville during the fall!

    • Frazier History Museum.
    • Attraction Slideshow: Museums in Louisville.
    • Kentucky Derby Museum. ...
    • Jim Beam American Outpost and Distillery Museum.
    • Kentucky Science Center. ...
    • The Muhammad Ali Center. ...
    • Louisville Slugger Museum.
    • Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind.

    Looking Forward to a Fantastic Trip,

    The Len Foote Hike Inn dates have been confirmed - they are Friday-Saturday, September 29-30, 2018. 

    The trip is currently full.  To be added to the waiting list, contact the Trip Coordinator.

    If you like to hike and have never done this before, you will love this fantastic moderate hike.  The trail is well maintained without a lot of rocks or roots on the trail.  It is uphill most of the five miles.  You will need to carry your clothes and toiletries for the evening and the next morning.  When you reach the Inn, you will fall in love with this place and will want to go back again.  Awaiting you will be a delicious home-cooked dinner (family style) and a hearty breakfast.  Alcohol can be packed in.  For more info, see their website @ Hike-Inn.com.  Be aware that what you carry in you must also carry out.

    The cost with 2 people per room is $217.35 (or $108.68 per person).  For one person in the room the cost is $151.80.  If you book a single room and want to change to a double (add a roommate), you can call the Inn and pay the difference. There is also a $10 per room tip that must be paid while you are at the Inn.  Cancellation is up to 7 days out with a $10 per room cancellation fee.

    The Virginia Creeper Trail is possibly the easiest, prettiest mountain bike ride you will ever encounter. The VA Creeper Trail, which is actually the "retired" railway corridor of the Virginia-Carolina Railroad, has become one of the most popular bicycling trail destinations in the eastern United States.

    The Va Creeper Trail stretches 34 miles from Abingdon, Virginia down thru the lovely town of Damascus, Va (known as the Heart of the Va Creeper) along the Whitetop Laurel River and up to its highest point Whitetop Station near the NC State Line at Whitetop, Virginia. The Va Creeper Trail is open year round to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

    This former rail bed passes through the Mount Rogers National Recreation area and the highland country of Southwestern Virginia. The Virginia Creeper Trail is rich in beauty and regional history. This is an easy biking adventure that you and your friends and family will talk about for a long time.  

    Join us on this October 19-21, 2018 ride.  At this time we have 12 CSC riding the trail.

    Contact Barb Wise for information no lodging and booking your shuttle/bike rental (if necessary) to the top of  White Top Mountain
