The only discount Lie-Nielsen ever offers is if you go to their factory store in Maine. Unfortunately it is currently closed because of covid19. They offer a ten percent discount so you better spend a lot to make the trip worth while.

Actually, they usually offer an open house in July with a Maine Lobster dinner. A great place to see and feel all the tools, not just from Lie-Nielsen, but other innovative hand tool makers from all over as well. Numerous speakers to make it a real educational experience.

Did you ever do any fishing around Bear Creek or Pickwick? Some of my favorite places to fish.

While traveling the inland waterways on my boat, we spent a year off and on at Joe Wheeler State Park on the Tennessee River between Athens and Florence. Beautiful area especially traveling by water.

There is a really great sawmill in Tellico Plains. The owner has a wonderful showroom where he sells his own furniture and slabs. His prices were exceptionally cheap and his creativity and workmanship was exceptionally high

I live in Florence. We take the kids to Joe Wheeler every year and camp out in the primitive camp grounds. It got hit pretty hard by a tornado this last year. Iíll have to check that sawmill out. Sounds like a cool place.

I was wandering around the downtown area and then drifted slightly out of the way. It is a large showroom with very impressive furniture made by the owner. Worth a day trip.
And yes, Joe Wheeler is a great place. We wintered over in our boat and we were the only ones there at the marina. I prayed for snow and my prayers were answered. We had one snow and it was I think 6 to 8". I took photos of the deer in the wood while the snow was falling.
Enjoy your trip to Tellico Plains. Take pics and post them on here.

That was a miracle/answered prayer to get 6-8Ē of snow in Alabama. I only ever remember getting that much snow here one time. Must have been the one your talking about.

My wife says we did get a good snow in 2015. She remembers riding on a sled behind the four wheeler. The one Iím thinking of was Christmas of 2010 I think. With as few snows as we get we remember them all lol

Your probably a lot younger than i. We had about 3-6 of sleet in the 80's. Grew up off Marlboro street off of Darby drive. My wood shop teacher in the late 70's at Bradshaw died this year. Mr Jack Yarber. All my mother's side of the family live in Florence.

I looked back at my photo album, the photos were taken on Feb. 25 and 26 of 2015. When it comes to remembering stuff, I cant remember what I ate for breakfast.

Anyway, heading up river, we stayed at a big city park in Scottsboro, It also had marina, campgrounds, beach area and a really coll cave tour about an hour away I think it was called Cathedral Caverns, but dont bet on it. Anyway, the park and the caverns are something the kids might really enjoy.
