Brandcation Blog Cabin… I’m going! #Brandcation

© 2012

That’s right, I’m going on another Brandcation. These are the best blogging trips ever! I always get to meet great people and experience things I’d NEVER experience on my own. I’ve been to every Brandcation event that’s been planned. The first was Bloggers on Bourbon which was my first experience in New Orleans. I fell in love and can’t wait to go back! The second was Brandcation Kissimmee Global Getaway. At that event I got to ride a gator and go ziplining for my first time. The most recent Brandcation was Bloggers Gone Coastal. There were so many awesome activities on that trip, including more ziplining, tubing, star gazing and dolphin watching.  This time will not disappoint, either!

See that beautiful cabin? We’ll be staying there. It will be the first Brandcation where we are all in the same building. “Cabin Fever Vacations offers over 200 economy to luxury Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabins for guests visting our scenic Smokies. Secluded honeymoon cabins with romantic mountain views, family reunion cabins, and log cabin resorts with swimming pools.” I think it’s going to be a blast! This time I will be rooming with Jenn of The Rebel Chick. She is awesome and I can’t wait to get to know her better!  I can’t wait for all the great activities we’ll be doing. Here’s the itinerary:


Check in/ Getting to know you

Dollywood– An all inclusive stay and play resort! You can play, eat and stay. I’m looking forward to enjoying the rides with adult friends. I’m sure we’re going to have to make a trip down to enjoy it as a family sometime, too!

Dinner at Lumberjack Feud– YO HO!  Grab your flannel shirt, sharpen your ax, and log roll your way over to the newest Dinner Theatre Show in Pigeon Forge, TN:  Lumberjack Feud!!!  There you will receive VIP treatment that includes premium dinner seating for an up close and personal view of the feuding lumberjack Dawson and McGraw families.
