What a GREAT weekend in NC at the first of hopefully many to come Smoked Butt Hang. Missy and I headed down Thursday to get the long drive out of the way, 13 hrs each way. The gates at the campground close at 8:00 pm and I knew it would be close, like five minutes close. After a GPS user error we arrived at the gate at 8:15.... LOCKED!!! Cowboy and Ground Hog came to our rescue and we had a nice evening meeting CowBoy, GroundHog, JuneBugDawn, and Paulie. Weather was warm and sticky, I'd forgotten how nice it is to lay in the hammock at night with no TQ. LONG COLD WINTER in Michigan.
Friday after picking the car up we all moved to the group site, set up camp and relaxing. Great day meeting people as they arrived and the weather was pretty nice first part of the day. Clouds, thunder, wind and rain were heading our way for the latter part of the day. We all made to best of it and rode the weather out.
Saturday had a brisk start to the day but turned out to be a really nice day for hanging out. Talked to pretty much everyone and had a great time discuss gear, food, bikes, and just about everything else under the sun.
BIG THANKS to Catavarie and Bonepile for the BBQ, Gunner and his wife for the beans, FiMB for Chili #1, Pretbek for Chili #2, Gresh for Cowboy Stew and all the others that helped feed the masses at dinner time. Thanks to 4WLO, Visionarylion, and those that helped out at breakfast. Your efforts are certainly appreciated by those that taste your delicious food.
