We are Dave and Phyllis Baseler (the name that shows on the account is Marcia Russell, who is our daughter and handles most of our reservations). We've been married for more than 50 years. We have three daughters and six grandchildren. For most of our marriage, Phyllis has been a stay-at-home wife and mother. Dave spent more than 30 years in broadcasting and marketing, retiring in 1998 from ServiceMaster. We've lived in Detroit, Chicago and Memphis. In 2000, we moved to a small town in North Carolina to help manage a childen's Bible camp. That turned out to be a big job for both of us. So in 2004, we 'retired' again, only to be thrust into service as the US Director for a mission organization in Pennsylvania. We've now 'retired' from that responsibility. We now spend most of our time managing our Gatlinburg cabins. Our children are in Chicago, Nashville and Charlotte, so we travel a lot to be with them and our grandchildren. Dave serves on several other non-profit boards and still consults with Christian organizations in the areas of branding and identity.
