Also looks like shorts and t-shirts will be the garb for this trip.



Sure glad I have A/C in the camper. :P

I don't think that anyone will need A/C at night. But, it is going to be hot on the trails and even hotter panning for gold.

We'll be running that A/C full blast all night long.

I am hoping to be high banking on Friday. The splash of muddy water will keep me cool.

Had I known it was going to be this warm I would have suggested we revive the "paddle your DIY Kon-Tiki-style raft" boat race! :mrgreen: Probably too late to pull this together, although I'll be happy to take on anyone in a Barbie Jeep IZUSU race down the Dutch John trench hill. C'mon... y'all know you want to take out the skinny nerd or at least watch him get hurt in an epic tumble! :laughing6:

If it was going to be wet, I'd bring a pair of old "rock" skis and hitch up a couple of JoeD's dogs to race you.

I may have to call it a maybe once again. Can't get this darn truck running right and my time to continue working on it is limited the rest of the week. Going to try one more thing this afternoon but I'd that don't work....

Edit: I think I may have figured it out! Waiting for it to cool back down so I can start it up cold to see how it acts. Fingers crossed.

Well, it has come down to a last minute decision for me, but I am out. :cry:

On a positive note, for those who haven't heard yet. Laura is pregnant and we are expecting a little girl to be born in July!! :D This was a bit of a surprise to us as we were told 3 yrs ago that she couldn't have anymore children. So come July we will have a 16yr old son, 14 yr old daughter, and a newborn... :shock: Fun times to be had around our house. Add that to me starting a new business this year, and I have my plate full. Smitty was going to come to represent the Richmond contingent, but he can't make it either.

It goes without saying that I will likely be out for the fall run, unless Momma is just sick of me whining about not going camping and lets me go just to shut me up. :lol:

Have fun guys!!

No longer paid for. Mark got a refund. So if you want it, you have to book it.

Site #26 booked for Ditchdoc and crew 27-30 April.

No group dinner planned for this year? Might just have to do a sloppy joe / bring what you want dinner Saturday night. :D

With almost 7'' of rain the past 2 days, the trails should be muddy, unless the 80*+ temps dry them out quickly. Don't think I'll be participating in any trail runs though. :mrgreen:

Hope everyone has a safe trip there...

In a little over 27 hours (4:00am) I will be packing up the crew and hitting the road for an 8 hour 400+ mile journey that will be complete with a gas stop every 125 miles.

But first another long day of fixing peoples stuff and driving. :?

See you at the rest stop at 6am tomorrow Mario!

Looking at radar "estimates" for the area. It looks like Troy/Uwharrie did not get the brunt of the rainfall. Amounts to the east and west exceeding 4" of rain. But their area is only showing .5" to 1.5" in general - A good soaking but not the crazy amounts around the area. Hopefully the trails will be drier by Thursday after some sun and warm temps.

Upon closer inspection, maybe a bit more rain. I didn't realize that Uwharrie was that close to Albemarle
