    I am looking forward to this trip. I actually will be getting 3 weekends in a row outside in the piney woods. I have cubscout trips before and after. I am sending off my new bug net today to have a small tear repaired (Marty with WL rocks). I have new boots, clothes and I am making my tarps complete. I need to find my shockcord so I can make tarp tighteners and rig up my sleeping bag for an UQ.

    Coming From Eastern NC?

    Who else is coming from eastern NC?

    My mother-in-law is very ill and I may need to give the Sunday Gravy I promised to someone for transport.

    Thanks,

    EDIT

    Never mind, the wife just told me I'm going!

    Yeah looks like I will be leaving at 11AM Saturday morning. Should put me there at 1:30-2:00 PM.
    We are the crazy people.

    Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my a_ _ lighter.
