    I had a thought the other day, (insert sarcasm here) about shooting aerial photos of the get-together. I called the Andrews Airport today, and spoke with a pilot about chartering him and his Cessna to do some flybys of y'all and shooting some good "poser" photos. "No problem" he said. "Barring bad weather". So, the photo shoot location has to be in the open, with enough room to get y'all lined up and out of yer trucks. I've studied the Terra Server maps and remembering the ridge where Tipton Creek trail branches off the main road. I thought that would be the optimum place, as it's on a ridge, has a bit of an open place there, has a view to Lake Hiawassee, so y'all could see us coming at ya easily. I've got the GPS coordinates to navigate by and would give y'all a cell phone call as we take off at Andrews or approach y'alls position. The IP coordinates should have great cell phone reception. I can give ya a time window of around a half hour..............or what ever ya think would work well. :wink1:


    What y'all think............???
