The extended family of Bill and Casey Eckles gathered in Lake Barkley, TN in the summer of 1999 - A hot trip in a dry county

We all travelled to Michigan and drove down to Lake Barkley State Resort Park in a big caravan.  We stayed in a set of cabins designed for family reunions.  We arrived after a long drive and wanted a cold beer but it was a dry county and we did not have any.  It was hot in Tennessee but there was lots of water sports

Three cars in the caravan with lots of boats
