Friday, 4/15/11: Rally Day 4, Free Day, Demo, and Cruising the Strip
After two days of rally seminars and fun, today was a designated free day. There were a few various non-rally activities planned for the day as mentioned in the previous post. So, what did we do? Of all the fun and interesting activities available, we only attended one: the Flowbee demonstration. Yes, I attended it also. I knew that I needed to check this hair cutting process out too because I figured that I'd be the one using it. Terri cuts my hair, so I guess it's only fair that I cut hers. Is she brave... or foolish? The demo was done at Gin and Syl's site at 11 AM. We moseyed on over there and watched Gin cut Sherry's hair. It was very informative, and I think I can do it with a little practice.
We really didn't do too much else the rest of the day. We ate left-over chili for dinner and then jumped in the car to check out the annual Spring Pigeon Forge Grand Rod Run. This is an annual car show that takes place on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. The weather wasn't cooperating. It was cloudy, windy, and rainy, so we weren't sure if many cars would be out, but once we got down to Pigeon Forge we found all kinds of cars and trucks: street rods, classic cars, muscle cars, and just about everything in between. Some of the cars were covered due to the rain, but we still got a good sampling of the event. The traffic was a bit slow, especially in the right lane. That actually worked out well, though, because most of the cars were parked along the Parkway, and the slow moving traffic made it easier to view the cars. We just made one pass south, turned around, and then headed back north to the campground. We didn't stop anywhere and walk due to the rain. We decided that we'd try and go back Saturday afternoon and check it out when the weather would be nicer.
Tomorrow we're back to rally seminars, a catered meal, and a 1970's Theme Party.
