So my Red Molly band obsession has me going to Berea KY on 4/11 then over to Bristol TN on 4/12. But then I'll head all the way back to Lex to join y'all sometime on Saturday! And not heading out until Monday.

Was there many times. It was where my grandparents stayed when visiting from Louisville. There were not tons of motels/hotels back in the 1960s.

I just read about a canoe tour to Buffalo Trace. Operates June-October, so maybe something to consider for H&B DO XV.

Someone online enthusiastically recommended visiting this distillery, one unfamiliar to me.:

Maybe Red Molly can entertain us at your folks' house!

The Magic 8 Ball predicts my attendance as "most likely".

Logistics are still in flux as I may add on a side trip to TN, either before or after the DO. Looking forward to seeing everyone and the races.
