I won't get to Columbia until Sat afternoon and Hermann on Sunday. I'm trying to cram a week vacation into 3 days - and I've done it before ,so we'll see how it goes next weekend.

So when I get to MO for good (hopefully after the 1st of next year) we'll try it again next fall and I'll make sure I have my pink carnation promptly displayed!

Thanks for all your help and info! Have a NASCAR kinda weekend!

Default So maybe I can record the race.

You will enjoy Hermann. There is way too much to see in one day, though. I hope you see the old cemetery that looks like it goes straight up....the hill is so steep. It's a beautiful view from the top. So...if you see the Casey's gas station, go on the street behind it. The opposite direction from Casey's is Stone Hill Winery. But don't waste ALL your time there. There are so many more. lol. Please be forwarned that if you don't get into town early (before noon) you may be sitting in traffic to get into the town. No kidding...I sat on the highway one year and inched my way to Hermann. Trust me...you don't want to inch your way over that bridge.

If you haven't already, check this out. http://www.hermannmissouri.com/
There are a lot of details about the shops and things to see.
Have fun!!

Smile Mo-Orph

I have the pamphlets that the city of Hermann send out to tourists. They sent a ton of stuff and MAPS! I was wondering about the parking situation. Good thing I'm use to getting up at 5:30 every morning. I'm one of those people that always wants check out new places as soon as possible. We'll get going plenty early. The lady that's flying in from Connecticut to meet me is as bad as I am. When I went to visit her for the first time we ended up in 5 states in 3 days. WE ARE GOOD! And I'm a photo nut.. so if I miss actually seeing something I probably have it in a pic and didn't even realize it. OK - we won't doddle in one place and we are spending 2 days in that area, so if we miss something on Sunday maybe we can go back Monday and check it out. Ok - well sorry we won't be eating - drinking and being merry in the same area this year.. but there's always next year! I'll let eveyone here know when I download my pics from the trip. Anyone who wishes to see them can just send me a private e-mail with your e-mail address and let me know if you want me to send them to you one on one or when I send them out to my friends as well. I think I have most bases covered. Oh hey - one quick question anyone out there have any suggestion on the fastest / easiest way to get to Hermann from Columbia .. or should I just stick with the Chamber of Commerce map I got from Hermann? Thanks everyone!

Default Fast Track To Hermann

Quickest way to Hermann from Columbia is East on I-70 to Hwy 19 South. That's it. Go south on 19....it takes you directly to Hermann.

By the way, if you make a left turn just off the bridge, go down a few blocks, turn right, there is parking on the left side about 2-3 blocks away. Otherwise, just look around. Today I turned left at the bridge, went to the first stop sign, turned left again, then parked on that back street between down town and the river. There is parking at the riverside park, too. Oh ya....if a shop owner says 'you're the one with the carnation,' I told her you were coming.

I-70 east to 19 south is fastest. 63 south to 94 east may be a prettier drive (along the Missouri River). I would guess it wouldn't add more than 1/2 hour to your trip.

I had a wonderful (Saturday) at the Oktober-fest in Hermann. I will upload my pictures in a yahoo album and post the link later. The leaves were very pretty in spotty areas. Not like they usually are in the fall. Mostly it was green and red and shades of brown, but still very pretty.

Red face Need MO info about Yahoo - MO - Orph

I usually post mine to Yahoo too. Can you tell me how to SHARE them with the public? I think that would be easier on everyone here who wants to see them. And if I make them public can I send them via e-mail to my friends?

GayleAZ, you have to make sure your setting for the albums are "public." Yes, you can share them by email. Click on "share album" and it will tell you how to do that. If I remember correctly, an email is sent with the link to the albums. Here is mine from Hermann, Mo.

http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/skam2000m/my_photos

Click on the album titled Oktober-fest-06.
Some of my albums there are private. I need to see what's in them and update.
