I had given it some thought last year, but it was at the same time as our ISO 9000 audit. I won't know when that is until mid March.

I've already spent 3 days riding around in Land Between the Lakes, Ky area, where "Deliverance" was filmed, visited the old cabin homestead on the Trace Trail, and had the 2"porkchop at Patti's 1880's Settlement. You're making it sound like "Old Home Week". Kinda liked most of the banjo playing and singing I heard riding the Ozarks, near St Joe, AR (pop.85), this last May. Songs like " Don't pet the dawg, he'll h*mp your leg!" and " My best friend ran off with my wife. He was still my best friend till he brought her back!" Thanks Mark, you've really got me looking forward to the D/S Ride-In. Wait till I tell you my Boaz sheep story. John

Yes that kid is right of old hickory road west of the sourgum mill off of the right fork of the little creek outside Cherokee . :lol:
I've got a comb, piece of wax paper, and an old shine jug: maybe they'll let us sit in a session or two. Otherwise I know a little restaurant in Marshall, AR where on Friday night we can sit in on a band. John

I'm sorry jones463, but I believe Deliverance was filmed mostly in Northern Georgia. It isn't too far south of where the Darkside Ride-in will take place.

Deliverance was shot in the Tallulah Gorge southeast of Clayton, Georgia and on the Chattooga River, which divides the northeastern corner of the state of Georgia from the northwestern corner of the state of South Carolina. Additional scenes were shot in Salem, South Carolina. A scene was also shot at the Mount Carmel Baptist Church cemetery, which now lies 130 feet under the surface of Lake Jocassee, on the border between Oconee County and Pickens County South Carolina.[SUP][2]

Several years ago this was the theme for me to find all the places the film was shot . The lake where church was on now lake jocassse still has a blacktop running into the water . I think those pics are on this IPad . Maybe I will check . It still is hard for me to believe this is what they deemed as making progress . There was a little old lady that volunteered at the Townsend, Ten welcome center years back that I sat and talked to for half a day , buying her lunch and sitting on the porch talking about her dad loosing the family farm to the national park . At gunpoint her dad was still not leaving . A 3 day ordeal she witnessed from behind the barricades . Progress , I wonder still to myself . Wanna story ? Check out Trail of Tears play in Cherokee sometime . This "want to be known hard ass rider " sat in tears when it was over . To the point where afterwards a few of the kids and there parents from the play came up to me and asked if everything was all right .We chatted for an hour or better . The next day we made plans to meet again .We all went for ice cream downtown and I made some really good Cherokee Indain friends I still stay I touch with to this day . Grandma who is now passed away told me the true spirit of the mountain is inside me as she looked into my tear filled eyes that evening . It's still creeps me out , she was looking way beyond my eyes, it felt like . I think she wanted ice cream and that's what I am going with .;)

Jones the next time you are in the LBL area, give me a shout. I'll lead you to a little known BBQ joint that has pork chops that make Patti's chops hang their bones in shame. These chops are listed as 2# cooked weight, but usually are closer to 3# each and can be pulled apart with a plastic fork.

Sorry Boomer, That's what I was told at the time while I was there. Thank You for the correction. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused and still look forward to visiting the area. John

No apology necessary. I just thought you would like to know where it was filmed.

The first time I rode through that part of Georgia I lost my FM radio signal and hit auto search. It said 0 for FM stations so I switched to AM. They were just starting a song. Guess which one, yea. Dueling banjos!! :eek:4: :nojoke:
