  Trapper,

  Deer are quite common around here, a nuisance even.  And the fencing,
using locust posts and rails is common to the parkway.  Supposed to be the
way fences were built 100 years ago.  Compared to Alaska and the Rocky
Mountains, though,  I'm sure these hills are tame.  But nonetheless very
pretty.

  Do you happen to remember the name of the lodge where you stopped and ate?
There's one in Doughton Park (part of the Blue Ridge Parkway complex about
25 miles into North Carolina from Virginia) which is not far from where I
live.  In the movie Forrest Gump even ran on the Parkway near there for a
couple seconds.  The BR Parkway is supposedly the most visited of all our
national park systems..... Bill

    you know bill as I was driving thru I kept telling Diane..I think I know
of someone around here...:-)
    It was beautiful....but tame!
    We stopped at some lodge along the way..big beautiful grounds..great
food etc...had like a farm fence up and saw some deer hanging about the
place. Guess from the looks of things that is common.

      Trapper,

      Man, you passed within a half mile of my house.  I live close to the
Blue Ridge Parkway.  Isn't that a beautiful drive?

      If you're ever in this area again, CALL ME.  We're in the book (or
email me and I'll send you the number.)  Would love to meet you and that
beautiful and talented bride of yours....  Bill

        Hey Bill;
        Went thru the blue ridge mtns. last year...Forgot we had done that
trip...thanks for reminding me...
        We started at the very beginning of the trail and went to its very
end. We were on our way from DC to Fla. and wanted to stay off the freeways
as much as possible.

          Hi Carl and Eric,

          I attempted to make Fred Langa's bootable CD of XP, patched with
SP2.  About every other step would hang on me with some message or other.  I
figured out a few workarounds but finally gave up on it.  It sounded like a
good idea, I just couldn't get it to work on my computer.

          And yes, Eric, its a beautiful world we live in.  After Hurricanes
Frances and Ivan blew thru here to clear the air, you should see the views
from the Blue Ridge Parkway in the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia.

          Bill (not that one, another one)

            Hi Carl,

            When Bill kindly sent me a new CD containing SP2, it took me
just 20 minutes to install on each of four computers, and it installed
perfectly, no problems encountered. The closest thing to a problem was a
"false" error message from Nero 6 stating it does not recognise the OS and
cannot work. But I ignored the message and went ahead and Nero burned a data
CD for me perfectly! I have since downloaded the latest Nero 6, which no
longer has the false error report.

            Guess what - it's Spring here, the grass is green, the trees are
budding, the birds are singing... we did have a cold day on Sunday but it
has warmed up again - what a beautiful world we live in!!

              Step 14 will get you.    Funny, this man  Fred Langa  says to
make your own boot cd for Windows xp SP2 and it'll save an hour of time when
you need to reinstall SP2;  but it'll take 2 days to make.    And for lay
people like me that does not know that much about software, we'll make a
mistake along the way and the darn cd will not work when needed.    To make
that cd one has to delete a file and then add it back from a different
source.   I can just see it now;   my system crashed and I restore the
system back to factory settings and then update it with this new type
bootable cd and ............... opps, it doesn't work.    Now what.    I've
wasted 2 days making a useless cd.
