Hi , it's Ellen from Atlantic City area.
I'll be flying from Philly airport to Nashville for both the morning and afternoon tours.

Who else is going? And where are you driving/flying in from ?!?

I'm a poker dealer in Atlantic City; how about you ?
I was on the NJ hot dog tour a year and a half ago.......and had lots of fun. (and some great Italian hot dogs!)

see you in Nashville?!

A friend & I will be doing the afternoon tour. Hubby wasn't interested, so it became a girls' weekend out!!! We're driving in (about a 5 hour drive).

Other folks in our community are going to N'ville to run in the marathon the same day. They have been "training" for a while now. Our circle of friends has laughed with us & said we're "training" for our trip to N'ville, too. Bring on the chicken!!!

Janet and I will be in Nashville for the Weekend. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Loveless for the beginning and end of each Tour. Our Scotties travel wil us, so plan on greeting the Pups also! We won't be on the Bus due to some medication issues I have, but we will be there before and after.

We will have Poverty Pete with us, He is a Nashville resident and can give good advice for places to see, even with a city full of Running people!!

Ellen, Check your email for a message.

I'm glad a got a few nice responses.......thanks to both of you...

Thought I would get a lot more!! Where is my Welcome Mat?!?
Perhaps some of you don't get on Roadfood as much as I do?!

Perhaps I'm just really into it, cause I'll be flying down, renting a car, staying in a motel, etc...... and it's nice for a change to fly somewhere other than Vegas, LA, Florida.... I already go to those places plenty of times..

Anyway, thanks for your nice welcome mat, Al-the-Mayor!
And looking forward to meeting you, "lost in the mail"

I'm Christine and coming down from NJ for the afternoon tour(1st roadfood tour). I'm making a big road trip out of it stopping in western NC to visit friends, then going to Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA and another visit to a friend in Atlanta. Plan on eating lots of roadfood along the way, Also, I just found out about a Vidalia Onion Festival in GA the week I'm there. I'm really excited.
See you then

This has the potential for getting many together for one of the best Roadfood get togethers ever. It is highlighting many southern favorites not only for breakfast for for some of the most unusual chicken ever.

I am looking forward to meeting many RF friends that I have never met.

My wife Patti and I are flying in from Chicago. We had planned a Nashville trip before the Roadfood tour was mentioned as a meeting place for our Atlanta based brother-in-law and sister. Bucking the marathon trend, we're staying in the downtown area and planning a few activities. The 4 of us are on the morning tour as I'm an early riser.

I had an opportunity to meet several Chicago based folks on the February Hot Dog Tour and am looking forward to a fun Nashville weekend and meeting some new Roadfooders as well!

Deal us in!

The long range forecast for Nashville for the Tour Weekend shows probable Sunny and Mid 70's. That's fine with me ! We will be looking for the opportunity to share time with Roadfooders Late Friday evening and Saturday after the tour, and Perhaps a Brunch on Sunday Morning. Depending on your personal travel agenda as to how much or how little you want to extend yourself beyond the great Bus Tour??!!

Contact me via email for additional info, if you are interested.

the 70's sound delightful! Even the 50's would sound good to me right now. (it only got up to about 42 degrees here in the AC area)
I forced myself to get outside and jog in the chilly rain...

(got to prepare for all that good food in Nashville!)

I'll be staying by the airport , too. Got a great deal at the Red Roof Inn off of Donelson Pike . $40 plus tax; website special...

I like the way Red Roof Inns have renovated themselves

I think I will have my first meal Friday at a place called "Cheeseburger Charlies"

My cousin and I are on the morning tour. We have both attended the two previous Roadfood bus tours. They are so much fun, we will attend no matter where they are held. For those of you going for the first time, you are in for a real treat!

We are arriving Thursday night and have a long list of restaurants we want to get to. We are also very much looking forward to meeting all the other Roadfooders who are attending. I can't wait!

Yes, it will be so much fun to be with "like-minded" people!!
I have to be real careful, for instance, around my brother-in-law cause my sister says I talk about FOOD way too much !! (stuff like that apparently is not as important to him)

So it will be fun in Nashville to talk about FOOD all DAY !

Howdy. My wife (Jan) and I will be driving up from Natchitoches, LA, via Martin, TN (to visit with daughter, SIL, & granddaughter-in-production), both ways. We'll hit dinner on Friday night, the morning bus tour, and brunch on Sunday.

My brother and I did the Presidents' Day mini-tour in Austin and loved it, and we're really looking forward to the Nashville experience, as we're both Tenneseans and, in fact, lived in Columbia the first year of our marriage.

I have a ticket for the afternoon tour if anyone needs one.

Photos ! Lots of Photos ! We will be around for the start and finish of each tour, but we won't be tracking the bus from place to place, so you Bus Folks need to preserve the activity on the bus and at the various stops as much as you can. The activities before and after the tour, and the Friday evening and Sunday Morning Brunch will add to the flavor of the pictorial history of this Expedition!

Cajun, my friend... That's why I put out the word. We want everyone to share the fun, if not by attending, then by seeing as much of the activities as possible in a Trip Report on the Tour.
"What goes on in Nashville Won't Be Staying in Nashville", if we all add photos to the Journal!!

My friend Nancy and I are also making this a girls roadtrip and we're driving in from Memphis for the afternoon tour.
I can't wait! I've been a Roadfood fan since the 1980s so this is an experience I didn't want to miss.
I'm looking forward to meeting other Roadfooders!
Jean

By the way--I have a collection of Jane and Michael Stern books from the 1980s on--do they autograph their books during these bus tours?

Sundancer has got a new camera which the Mayor will provide some help and I will add a lot of photos to the group.

I bought a new Canon 7.1 image stablizator which I will try to make as many photos as possibble and Al can help me post them.

The other restaurants I plan on hitting while in Nashville are Rotier's, Elliston Place Soda Shop, Arnold's Country Kitchen & Prince's Hot Chicken Shack, all of which I have never been to before. And no trip to Nashville is complete for me without going to one of my very favorite breakfast places in the entire country, Pancake Pantry. And if time allows, I would like to try another meal at Sylvan Park, since my previous meal there was not very good and I think that was an aberration.

Friday morning, I also plan on taking a tour of the state capitol building, which is another little interest of mine.

For those going on the bus that stops at Henpeck Market, I have a bit of advice. Don't overlook the tamales.

Just curious what kind of rate you are paying there

I'm looking forward to my Red Roof Inn, cause I like the way they put money into comfy pillow top beds. I've been lucky with them.
(hate sleeping on real stiff beds)

Way to go! This thread really took off!
glad to see we are on the 2nd page now!
Full speed ahead!

ellen

p.s. Can we get name tags saying our name and where we are from?

In the past two Roadfood tours, they also give you a nametag to fill out whenever you check in.

Besides your name and where you are from, can I suggest people also put their screenname on their name tag?

I bought my afternoon tickets from someone else a couple of months back. I'm not getting email updates from Stephen that some of you have mentioned concerning when to arrive, etc. So I would appreciate somebody keeping me posted if there is a change. Originally, it looked like a 1:00 PM kickoff if I remember correctly. But I noted in another thread it was stated by Sundancer to arrive at 1:45 & leave at 2. Can anyone verify the lastest info?

Thanks so much. See you soon.

Lost,
You have the info that was put out..originally the afternoon was due out at 1pm, but according to the update posted by Stephen Rushmore It will be getting started a bit later...1:45pm meet and 2pm departure. We will be there a bit before meeting time, come in and say "Hi". We will talk about Saturday evening and Sunday Brunch when we see how many are interested after the bus stops !!

$139 for two. Made the reservatioon some time ago, which may have made a difference. Also, I just discovered that I have a "patio or balcony," which I certainly don't need!

I'll be going on a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich pursuit in Wellsburg, IA that day to sample the best of 2006 according to the Iowa Pork Board. Maybe in the future I might want to join you all.

Just changed my reservation to the Red Roof Airport Donnalson Pike. (the Sheraton has been full for at least a month) Thanks for the tip Ellen4641! Mom has decided to come after all. I can hardly wait! Anyone have the street address where we're meeting in the afternoon so I can get directions???? Or am I just blind and overlooked it?

Meeting for both tours at the Loveless Cafe on Route 100.
You can go to their lovelesscafe.com website to get easy directions.

Glad you followed my "hot tip".
I love the $40.00 internet price, plus the comfy sounding mattresses.

p.s. Another possible hot tip......there is a bbq place just north of Red Roof Inn , right there on Donelson Pike. It's called Bar-B-Cutie... there are about 3 or 4 other Nashville locations. They are supposed to have the added bonus of a drive thru, plus known for their "white sauce".

I'll have to try their brisket

I teach my final class of the semester tonight...Then spend tomorrow getting the truck ready. It isn't a long trip down to Nashville (less than 200 miles) but when we take the dogs along we have to pack water and food for them too.

Friday and Sunday look sunny and bright with temps in the upper 70's to lo 80's. Saturday may see a few showers, but the temps will remain in the 70's so it won't be too bad.

like Al, I am cleaning up my car and getting packed for the trip on Friday morning.

My brother is coming down from Minneapolis. He bought one of my cars. I had a Mercury Marquis that I bought a year and a half ago. I only had 500 miles on it. I still have a truck and I think I have it sold also. It is a 2000 Silverado. I only have 9000K miles on it. I never drove it and as soon as he picks it up, I am on my way to Nashville where I will me lotsa new friends.

I do not have near the packing issue that The mayor has. I am putting the dog in the daughters hands. All I have to do is pack and go. I will have a clean car though.

You gotta be careful not to overdo it. I have done that before and by the second stop, you need a serious nap.
