You need to post here more often, Michael!

 

Oh, and come to another forum meet if you get the chance. We always enjoy having you there.

Noticed the Hemlock factory photo and the caption that it is idle.  What's up with that?!

Beautiful pictures!

 

I also liked seeing a Cathay Pacific widebody as your banner pic.  I grew up in Hong Kong and used to hang out at the HK airport observation deck with my brother just to watch all the planes, most of them CP.

 

Anyway, your pictures of Nashville are beautiful.

LOL!!  Thanks guys!  I plan on being at the February meeting.  Casey and I will be in Birmingham, Alabama this weekend cheering on Vanderbilt at their bowl game.

 

I'll have more pictures up tonight!

Thank you again.  I had to make a trip to Birmingham this weekend and that's slowed my editing down, but I'll get more up soon.  In the mean time, Birmingham is showing signs of economic life.  One question though, how does it have a Westin and Nashville doesn't????

Yeah, that's a biggie.  BUT!  Huntsville does have more college graduates than most cities its size and a lot of the jobs there are high paying jobs.  I would imagine it could support a hotel of that caliber pretty easily.

Also, can anyone remind me how to post pictures on here?

I'd LOVE to add some photos to this thread like the one attached.

Hit the insert picture icon (almost the middle of the bottom bar of 'reply to topic'), or I think [ I M G ] [ / I M G ] works (without spaces).

The only time I've stayed at a Westin was in Virginia Beach and I was NOT impressed.  Should a Westin be an especially fantastic property?  From that one experience, I do not see why everyone is so excited about the prospect of Westin coming into the Nashville market.

After going through the website, I don't see anything spectacular here. They have a Westin in Huntsville, and soon Chattanooga! Looks like a typical Marriott style property owned and managed by Starwood. I did not look at every one of the properties on the site, but most are in the 5-10 story range and rather generic. The one in Birmingham is 8 stories. The only one architecturally that impressed me was a 30+ story one in Charlotte.

 

I don't see anything here like an Omni or a Loews, which we have had since 1988.

 

What is the fuss?

Awesome shots there! Looked like one of the 747-SP shots was at BNA...any other shots of unusual aircraft flying at Nashville?

Maybe it was because you were in Virginia Beach...the suckage just bleeds over to everything. :sick:

 

Most Westins I've stayed in tended to be pretty good.
