    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    I travel light so it won't be a problem for me. I will have at most two bodies and two lenses as well as spare cards and batteries. I don't like to carry a lot around, less to lose, less to get stolen, the better.

    What time do we meet, and where? It's probably a 4 hour drive for me, but I haven't looked at the map yet.

    Looks like it will be close to that. It's about 115 miles to Louisville from Indy then another 70-80 to Lexington. OT may need to suggest a place to meet up since he is more familiar with the area than I am.

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    To get to Lexington it's a lot easier for me to go to Cincinatti and shoot down from their. I forget the highway number off hand, it's been 10 years since i went that route

    That would be 71/75. That might even be easier for you getting there if I remember the general location of Keeneland.

    No I think if you are coming out of the east side of Indy you would take I74 to Cincy and than I75 down to Lexington. Check that out on a map and see if that wouldn't be you most direct route. That's how I go to Indy from where I live.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Yeah, I think I forgot about that part, OT. I am pretty sure it is 74 from Cincy to Indy.

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    Yeah, I knew the 74 part, forgot the 71/75, and the small stretch of 275 around Cincy. I am on the East side of Indy, just three miles from the city limits.

    I almost moved down to that area of Indiana near the state line at one point, but couldn't find anything affordable at the time. Now a buddy just made me a deal for a place there...if it would have been last year at this time I'd have jumped on it. Right on the river, but high enough I wouldn't get washed away in a flood. Complete with a boathouse...well if I hit the lottery I could make it a summer home

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    Hey, JS, that's my ol' stompin' grounds there. I grew up and went to school in Shepherdsville/Bullitt County. Can't wait to see what you are getting. A lady that works for John is tempting us with a chocolate Lab puppy. I am trying to resist, but it's not easy.

    OK guys

    It's only about two weeks away now. We need to figure out some logistics here I think. We need to figure out a place for us to meet up mainly. I suppose me and Larry could meet in Mt. Sterling and go from there, but we need a place in Lexington for all three of us to meet at. Hope each of you are still able to make it.

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    OK guys time for a plan. I was hoping there would be a few more PR'ers jump in at the last minute and say me too, but doesn't look like. I think we need to meet early on Saturday and get out to Keeneland early. Last Friday I got tied up in traffic going by Keeneland near first post time when I was going to Nashville. We could meet up someplace like the Ramada on Paris Pike/68 just of 75/64 or at the Marriott at Newtown and 75/64. What do you think?

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    I hate doing this almost at the last minute, but I am going to have to pull out of this. I was really excited about going, but have had to reschedule an appointment and Saturday was the only date I could get that was not several months off. I hope that both of you are able to do this and hopefully if we can arrange something else soon, I will be able to make it then. Take plenty of pics for me.

    Sorry to hear that you can't make it. Keeneland is always an experience weather you are taking pictures or not. Maybe we can get something together for one of the state parks or later in the summer or fall. I'll see what John has to say and see if he can still make it.

    Re: Kentucky Gathering

    Hope he is able to. I was upset when I realized afterward what the date was. I wanted so much to go. Would still love to make that one of our get togethers, but would not mind one to a park sometime, either.
