Notwithstanding the tardiness of some (you know who you are) in getting back to me, in deference to those other more responsible ARRSERs (there are a few), the dates for the shoot are now firm. 28 April (travel day--I will pick up one load at airport for the 90 mile trip to the farm---situated a mere 20 miles from the site where Deliverance was filmed---so coordinate inbound and return flights guys and gals) and shoot 29-30 April with 1 May a return travel day for those returning to blighty or beyond. First come, first served as to the limited sleeping accommodations on the farm (our 10 dogs have to sleep somewhere after all) and I can provide recommendations to the nearest reasonably priced and clean hotels (I will provide taxi transport to and from the farm from there so no need for a hired car). While I am a teetotaler and vegetarian, we will be good hosts and provide at least a daily ration of alcohol and meat to keep the troops happy. Indeed, the LHCO, makes up a killer mint julep and anyone visiting the deep south cannot go home without at least one in their gullet. Smokers have a very nice front porch with exotic giant clamshell retrieved from a Pacific tour of duty as your ashtray. As for language, I of course am fully inoculated to barracks talk from my 34 years around Marines, but I would be a bit careful around the LHCO as her "look" may turn you to a pillar of salt. BTW, if you are allergic to dogs or cats or do not love the same, please do not come. It would be quite unpleasant for all. Finally, if you are of the praying/positive thinking sort, we need good weather (we will shoot regardless of course) AND more importantly we need more ammunition so let's hope the current shortage will subside by April. Please use PMs to RSVP. Cheers!
