    That may depend on how many people show up to break through the gates.

    nothing's....... impossible.....

    My prediction is there will be a one-two month budget patch on Wednesday night... then we can start having this discussion all over again at Thanksgiving, and then again at Christmas.... etc.

    I sure hope you are right. My trip down is coming up in 3 weeks and this is only my 4th trip down the whole year.

    Default Park opening

    The governor had a press conference yesterday about it. He understands the importance of the park being open in October. I think they will get it open ASAP, but I doubt by Thursday. Maybe I will be surprised. It seems the state governments are a little closer to the desires of the people.

    $60,000/day to keep the Park open. Blount County and Sevier County are both willing to help with the cost. Additionally, the money can be wired directly to the feds. With the leaves starting to change, they will want it open by the weekend. I bet an announcement to open the TN side of the park will come soon as well as an open date.

    Default Weekend

    They are not sure how long the park will be open. The agreement between states and counties is only for a few days. So, Lauxier I hope you can enjoy a weekend in the park. I wish I could be there, but I have to be in Atlanta for the weekend.
