They have a replica of the Parthenon there, I think. Or the Acroplis. Something like that. I thought it was interesting.

The Parthenon? It's full size, I believe. I've never actually BEEN to the real one, but the fake one is pretty big. It was about 25 years ago when I was there.

There MUST be Mercedes and VW junkyards to prowl in, big city like Nashville

Grand Ole Opry if you are into Country Music, (but from your LAST FM or whatever it was, on your sig, from before, I don't think you are)

I spend a lot of weekends there. I find the local call girl services to be most enjoyable. There is also a very nice swingers club on the northeast side of the city.

The girls will come right to the Gaylord, if you would like them too. They are all very attractive, and are not cheap. The six days you are there, will cost you roughly 4k, for the girl alone, but she will be great fun, and a pretty high class broad...

if you stay at the Gaylord, take a small compass with you. you can get lost in that place for days. Something like 2800 rooms last time I was there.
They had fun with our group. They gave us a map of the place. All three digit room numbers on the map. They had just changed to four digit room numbers and the new numbers in no way matched the old ones. I eventually figured out I was on the north end of the complex (compass, remember?) and on the third floor.

I lived about half an hour north of Nashville off I-24 for 11 years. Back in the day there was a sweet amusement park called Opry Land but that has since been torn down in favor of Opry Mills. HUGE mall type deal. If you feel like driving 45 minutes for the best steak of your life there is a restaurant off I-24 and the Wilma Rouldoph Blvd exit. The place is called Logan's Roadhouse. Im' sure a Google search will give you exact directions. I also know there is a pick and pull yard in Nashville. I'm not exactly sure where though...

I guess I miss it down there. I'm over due for a road trip.

I visited a couple of civil war sites. And I think the hermatige is there...Andrew Jackson's home.

My youngest sis lives there with her four kiddies and hub.

She is an excellent singer.....not pro though.
