How did you fare in the flood? My wife and I are moving to Nashville, closing on a house on May 24th. We're moving right into downtown near the Farmer's Market, but luckily our place didn't get flooded so we can still move in. Do you know of many other Travelpodders in the Nashville area to try to get some people together?


Currently traveling the world for work...with a few extra fiddleybits thrown in to keep it new...it's the cheapest way to go!!!

Quote from my friend Chuck, who spent 5 months riding his bicycle all the way around the USA - "Nobody says you have to order an entree in the restaurant of life, you'll only be here once! Order the sampler, try as many as you can before you're full; odds are one (of) the items on this menu does more for you than you ever thought. And if I'm wrong, tell the waiter that his menu sucks, throw the cook aside and invent your own masterpiece. Just pour 'em all in, all your favorite ingredients. With enough imagination, any combination will work -- there are no recipes for the paths still awaiting discovery."

Hey Bill,

I'm sorry I didn't see your post until now.

I am so glad your place wasn't flooded! Congrats on the closing. I live out in Green Hills and there were some neighbors that had basements flood, but luckily I was spared. Still... it was a rough couple of days.

Have you seen the pictures of the Opryland Hotel and Opry Mills Mall? There are also some eerie shots of LP field and 2nd/Broadway.

As for other TravelPoder's in town, I'm not sure...as far as I know I'm the only one. Are you interested in maybe grabbing a beer some time? I see from your profile you're an engineer...my friends and I are all engineers and we frequent The Flying Saucer quite a bit...PM me if you're interested in joining!

Since you're new to Nashville you should really check out this guide - it's one of the best I've seen for an all around list of stuff to do!

All the best,

2. Somewhere in South America, Early 2011
