No Better Place To Die: Battle of Stones River. Good book. I've been there to visit the battle sites in the late 90's and it was a solemn atmosphere like so many civil war locations.

Don't forget to get me some good doggy treats with the mints in them this year Darrell. This old Camaro bloodhound get's hungry! Went out to garage tonight just to make sure my sniffer was working fine. Sniffed out a deep groove pulley.

Oh and Mike there is a lot of historical sites in middle TN that most dont realize.  Many smaller battles in and around the area.

I live about 10 miles from Antietam and my mom now lives in Sharpsburg. I've dug up more civil war relics in my back yard than Camaro parts, for sure.

One day we hope to vacation in Tenn. Wish I had time for the swap meet.  :-\

 Being this is garage talk.........The Union victories at Antietam (debatable) and Stones River is just what Lincoln needed to go forward with his Emancipation Proclamation. If he had done so earlier then it would have looked like a desperate act for the Union because it was losing on the battle fields prior to that. Another reason for the Emancipation move was political as it now kept England from intervening on behalf of the Confederacy (The Union in Peril...another great book).

Chickamauga battlefield is a real good place to go! Use to ride horses thru the area. Lot's of old cannons and has a nice visitor center there.

Tennessee ended up with a lot of pivotal (and tragic) battles of the war - Stones River (Murfreesboro), Shiloh, New Johnsonville, Fort Donelson, Battle of Franklin, Lookout Mountain, Chicamauga, lots of skirmishes, battles and assorted mayhem. If you ever want an interesting read, scope out Jack Hinson's One Man War - his struggle as a civilian sniper in the Land Between the Lakes area - great book.

But I digress. Waiting on the annual Stones River Battle - trying to outflank Cook and Sport for the elusive NOS Camaro part on the next table -

Regards,

I wish there were some local swap meets coming up around here soon.  But will have to wait for another 5 weeks...

We ride our horses at the battlefield. Its my favorite trail even though its an hour drive.

The Stones River AACA Swap Meet in Nashville at the Fairgrounds was held yesterday/today.  I was up there today; didn't find any parts for my cars, but got some leads and got to talk to CRG buds, Darrell Cook (and met his brother Darren), Bryan302Summerhill,  Z28Z11 (Steve Burger), Rare396Bronze (Donald Harvey)...  Attached is a photo of these last two fellas here..   behind their parts tables... :)

(I had a chance later to get Darrell, Darren, and Bryan in one shot but my brain wasn't functioning and I didn't have my camera in my hand..  :)
PS.  Darrell and I did finally culminate a trade over a year in the making..  :)

Your camera was probably broke after that pic anyways..  lol 

That right there is the Camaro brain trust of Middle TN.. 


FYI there is another swap meet in Lebanon in 2 weeks..  Same format.  Vendor setup on Saturday and Sunday open to public..  Working on getting a couple spots if there are any left..

Amen. I offered Gary my Post Office profile stance, but the camera format couldn't handle the width.

The other 33% of the Mid TN brain trust wasn't in the shot - probably helping Water Boy with the bottle concession - lol

Lol..  I must admit..  He sold the shit out of that water and cokes..  Actually sold out..  Every time one of us went to the bathroom or walked by one of the $3 coke machines and someone was there buying one; one of us would say "hey there's a guy over there selling them for a dollar!!".  Worked every time..   ;D

We have sold pop and water at swap meets before. Some don't allow it to those without a good vending permit. Our "workaround" was to have a sign selling lug nuts for $1 (or whatever the price you charge) - then state "free water or pop with purchase of each lugnut".
