This week's discussion has been brought to us by member @Tennessee_Mountainman.
i see the back of one head that i recognize
It's Ranger Matt, the Dirty Dan Man. Love him!
I always enjoy Matt Atkinson's talks! This is a good one!
Watched the video. As with all Matt's videos, it was really good. He examines the controversial aspects of Forrest's life and lets us decide what to think. I suspect we're going to have a great discussion! Thanks, @Tennessee_Mountainman, for suggesting this one!
All my friends tell me good things about Matt Atkinson, and I personally have grown very fond of him. I'm glad you all enjoy it
In addition to Matt's two books he recommends, another great read I would like to add is That Devil Forrest by John Allan Wyeth. I especially like the early childhood accounts John puts together, which all come from primary sources of people who actually known him and his family.
Alright Brice's Crossroads One of NBF finest battles. Ive dug many a relic on both sides of Tishomingo Creek and up and down the M&O RR. I'll be there with bells on.
As will I. Now that I've walked the ground, it's much easier to understand. Love Ranger Matt. This one should be fun!
Agreed ! I always enjoy Matt's presentations.
I plan to be there!
Matt is so engaging and easy to listen to.
As I'm new to these discussions, is 9:30 EST ?
Yes it is.
But for me it is 1:30pm Tuesday afternoon ... for now ... until we go off summer time and you go on. Then I go back another hour and then a further hour at some stage.
I thought so . . . 9:30 in Jersey is 8:30 in the Sip'
I spent 2 months in Perth on a joint exercise with the ADF and had to keep 2 clocks so I wouldn't wake up the wife when I called home.
Beautiful city! Great weather.
@PeterT, we go on Daylight (summer to you) time a week from tomorrow, March 12, so this Monday night's chat will be the last on US Standard Time until November. And it isn't even spring yet!
It's 6:30 out here on the West Coast. I'm usually trying to eat my dinner and type at the same time. I may just keep quiet and let the Forrest experts expound!
Oooh! If I can figure out how to open the door without mashing my nose, I'll be there! (Good Lord willin' n the crick don't rise...further...)
Thanks Mary. And we go on to standard time on April 2, but I'll be in the USA then until April 19, so,I'll have to readjust when I return home.
