11 Hours Later...

Friday, March 31

After departing Bristol between 5:00 and 5:30 am, the last of the caravan, the rental truck hauling the supplies, arrived at the future home of Diane Henley at 4:00. It was a long and bumpy ride, but well worth the trip. We found the slab in great condition, so we were able to lay-out the entire house before dark. After laying out the house, we departed for our home for the week, De Soto Lodge. Tom and Diane's cabin is incredible. The driveway is 1.5 miles long and winds through the wilderness like the switchbacks on Highway 421. When you get there, you hear nothing but the crickets and the tree frogs chirping, while still having the same amenities of home. After dinner at a local catfish restaurant with Winn and his wife Carolyn Alexander, with whom our connection with Diane began, we headed back to the lodge to discuss our plan of attack. Although excited about starting and choosing our spot to crash for the night, we hit the sack.
