I was waiting to get my second covid-19 shot before registering. I am now fully vaccinated and will be registering this week. Princess and Buddy will be with me. I'm thinking of coming Wed. june 2nd. because with the hour time zone change it's an 8 hour trip without leaving the state. Tennessee is a looong state.

If you are bringing just one or two hounds, the Doubletree up the hill (and it is UP THE HILL) is recommended. I've got reservations at the Super 8 down the hill from the SJ. I may have to get Roman the Galoot to pull me up the hill by the end of the weekend, LOL.

The set up has changed for MH due to construction at the park so no radar run and no activities scheduled at the park. The restrooms are closed.

Due to the high number of attendees (as compared to Mountain Hounds Lite last year), use of the hotel's parking deck will only be on Thursday.

The other activities have been moved down the hill a bit. There will be a big tent set up in a backyard. No that there is NO parking there so you will have to walk from the Sidney James.

The Sidney James is at the red dot at 610 Historic Nature Trail.  The red dot in the grass on McCarter Rd is where the tent will be.

Currently the Mountain Hounds website does not have this year's schedule finalized, so keep checking back. You can register for the event here: https://gfncmountainhounds.com/register/

You can call the Sidney James Hotel at(865)436-7851. Let them know you are attending the event. As of a few minutes ago they had one room open up. If you missed it, call each day since there usually are a few cancellations as the event draws nearer.

UPDATE: rooms available! Ask for Tommy when you call.

Yay. I did get a room at the Sydney James. 

This will be my first mountain hounds. Never been to Tennessee. 

You're in for a treat! I will be at the Sydney James too. I can't wait to see everybody!

20 MORE DAYS UNTIL MOUNTAIN HOUNDS!!!

Rick is on his way back home from Gatlinburg, finalizing a few things. He said the hotel has 13 rooms available. He did not get specifics on which rooms, creekside or courtside. 

Sevier County mask mandate expired April 15th. They are no longer requiring masks to be worn. HOWEVER it is up to each store/restaurant to set their own rules. So if a shop/restaurant says wear a mask and you want to go in, respect their request. Rick said the ones he visited did not have a requirement.

He did not have a problem finding gasoline. And by the time MHs rolls around the pipeline will be fully operational and gas stations back on track.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
