    Debating an overnight car hang

    I am considering heading to Red River Gorge to my favorite campground this afternoon. We have 40-50% chances of isolated and scattered t-storms today/tonight/tomorrow. But, the cool WX is an attractive motivator.

    What to do....

    You can only practice how to camp in the rain by actually camping in the rain. The is no substitute. And to be car camping at the same time you have security in that. Go have a great time. Enjoy your time no matter what. I find that when it is raining during camp time slows down.

    Oh, I'm going. My only reluctance is 14+ hours I worked at the rained out NASCAR race yesterday. I'm beat.

    All the more reason to go!!!

    The real question is why are you at your computer if you could be off hanging?
