    Already loading the vehicle. Everything but the food.

    I will need to make a grocery run before I start. (Anything specific I need to bring Crash?)

    Already have the GPS set.

    Gas is down below $3 a gallon up here so this will be my cheapest jamboree trip ever.

    Hey, we can do that too!
    run
    I am halfway between N&S and willing to do two jamborees.

    It's a rough prospect but I would make the sacrifice.

    If we did something in Michigan all the folks from the Ohio River north would have a 5-6 hour run.

    Anywhere that does not require me to go through Illinois. I don't do Illinois.

    I guess that might rule out our neck of the woods as well...as far as what you don't do?

    Sure wish you could have made it this year. We both have 60+ years of tall tales to tell and only had three days of tale telling time last year. Not nearly enough time!

    Yeah I know was really looking forward to it.......

    Kinda frustrating to not be able to do the thing I/we used to easily.......But after a assessment on current Dr's pains and meds....It got to be apparent that it wasn't gonna happen.

    One or the events that was possibly going to be a problem was a couple of people.....a relative/friend that passed.
    As it turned out, they passed last week... a day apart ,.... so services were Fri and Saturday, 200 miles apart.

    After driving for two days ....it was tough to stay on the road that long.......

    DW say's ...Next year!

    Y'all have fun......

    We leave tomorrow to see son #1 in NC. I was hoping to make a stop at black mountain and share in the festivities . Work and all, we'll be missing out by a day or two. Y'all be safe.

    Will be heading out here shortly for the day. Will have all 3 kids, so no overnight this year. Lots of plan changes recently, but glad we will get to hang out today. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Hope everyone else can make it next year.

    Just walked through the door getting home.

    What a weekend! Too bad more folks could not show up.

    Great weather, good temperature, good campsite.

    We did have a couple of bumps to deal with but everything came out OK.

    815 mile round trip to a place so far back in the woods it did not even have GPS coordinates!

    Listening to that North Carolina accent made me homesick.

    Crash and Mrs Crash are probably about 1/2 way home by now. He has photos.
