    Which event are you running? Should be a large contingent of RTF posters at the North Alabama test.

    Nope don't need no fancy place but don't want no rat motel! Thought I'd ask though seeing how I've never been to the great state of bama!

    Like I said my little buddy will be traveling with me so want a decent place. Sounds like days inn will do. There have been a few trials where the back seat of the truck was my hotel!

    Last couple of times I stayed in the little white house on the property though it is haunted. Story goes that a former Prison Warden and family were murdered by an inmate in a very brutal crime and that the children are still in the house. I slept so soundly that they really didn't bother me.

    The last time I stayed in the White House at the Cattle Ranch, it was haunted by incredibly loud snoring that would scare away any self-respecting ghost!

    And all the while I thought it was the ghost rattling the windows!

    Days Inn is fine. Stayed at the Greenwood Inn twice- first time was clean, second time a bit seedy. Agree with Gregg Leonard's recs on meals. There's a good Cajun place in Faunsdale, east of Demopolis.

    Actually the story is true ... kinda. Once an inmate awoke in the middle of the night, walked over to HQ and entered the office and took a gun. Then he hiked down to the warden's house and shot the warden and his wife. (The warden's son also worked for corrections and was a close friend of mine.) Then he hiked back up the hill, returned the gun to the office and went back to bed. This was perhaps 15 years ago. He was executed several years ago. Never heard why he did this. We were kept from training or eventing on the Ranch for about 5 (?) years.

    When we were given permission to train again, the new warden came out to watch and he was hooked. Soon he got a dog and spent most evenings training and then got another dog ...
