Heading out?

I am headed out to the 105-Acre Outdoor Village here at the Land and Wildlife Expo.

I talked with event organizer Brian Abrahamson, and he is breathing a sigh of relief: temperature won't top 90 today in Nashville, and there's no rain in the forecast. Tomorrow there is a better chance of thunderstorms, but today is as good as it gets in August in the South.

The outdoor area is unique among mega-hotels. Abrahamson, vice president of corporate communications for Gaylord Entertainment, which owns the Opryland Resort and Convention Center, said the 105 acres is perfect for outdoor-related companies show off their new products where they are meant to be used: in the great outdoors. There are indoor events and product demonstrations as well.

Remington, Polaris, Dodge Ram Trucks, BioLogic and many other companies and organizations will have their wares on display at this consumer show.

Think of a trip to Nashville today or tomorrow if you are in the region. It's the place to be.

Let's go see what's happening!
