    Yeah I noticed that, but thanks for the point out.

    does the airport allow parking when you aren’t staying? I may combine this with a trip to Nashville and drive in to Nashville and leave the plane there. This plan also assumes I can get a rental there.

    There is nothing like rental cars there and the parking will be tight that weekend.

    There was plenty of parking last year, might talk to the lodge people about the closest rental place.

    I'll just fly down to Nashville. It was just a thought to save the hassle of finding a place for the plane in Nashville.

    If you already have a solid plan disregard...we went there last year and found John Tune (JWN) is very easy in/out, FBO treated us nicely and it’s an easy Uber in/out of downtown.

    You’re a pilot with an airplane and you were going to drive to Nashville? I’m sorry, you’re not welcome at our fly-in. :)

    I second John Tune Airport.

    I've done John Tune before. Not the worst place I've stopped. Not real fond of the approach when they won't let you up into the Charlie though. Way too many antennas for my liking.

    Have other reasons to drive into Nashville not relevant.
