    We drink. We watch intoxicated people stroll down the middle of the rushing Chattahoochee River. We drink. Eat great German food. We drink. Ladies can shop in the authentic Alpine village. We drink. Not necessarily in that order.

    Mostly we just hang out. Everything is within walking distance. Once you park at the hotel you don't have to move it again all weekend. That's probably a good thing too.

    Yup! It's not required but it helps. It's really just a laid back time. Lots of restaurants, German style shops, pubs/bars. Neat place in the No. Georgia mountains. That time of year the weather is great, if it's not raining.

    i think all has been said that needs to be. Its not meant to be a drunk fest. Nobody needs to drink or feel they need to drink to fit in. You can just watch me stumble through the river barefoot again or swim in the green pool (sober) for beer money.

    This a weekend gig, same hotel each year,,, Plenty of parking,,, Walking distance to Beautiful down town Helen Ga.
    If anybody needs it, the hotel for the last two years was the "Motel 6", and the number is (706) 878-8888. I have been called and notified they remember us, but I never gave a final date. They will give you a good rate if somebody calls and lets them know its under D*M*R (w/o the *'s) Truck Club.
    The now firm dates are Oct. 24th (Friday - Sunday a.m) - 26th.......
