    Hi all, the Ohio group may have a few more coming. Looks like it will work out that Gray Jay, Hammike, Mountnman, and I will be there. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. This year's weather forecast certainly looks nice, a radical departure from the storm last year (although it was quite beautiful the next day, especially up on top of Wilburn Ridge.) Everyone have a safe drive in.

    WooHoo! So it's a go with the van huh? Sounds like a great crowd for a road trip!!!

    well I think I finally got everything I needed for this trip, as I didn't really have any adequate winter gear (clothing+boots) only thing that is left is food and pack.
    It's not the fall im scared of, it's the sudden stop at the end!!!

    I called the Log House restaurant today & warned them we was coming Sunday. The guy I talked to was anticipating my call & our arrival, so we is good to go. I'm thinking patience will be in order as he did say there were only going to be 2 staff on Sunday, likely the cook & the waiter / waitress.

    I am so excited about this trip!!! Seems that the weather is going to be awful: no snow, warm weather, etc.
    I base my weather on what Indianapolis got about 24 hours ago, & it seems that what we get, Grayson gets in about a week, it is currently 48 degrees here with a light rain (almost not noticeable) so,,,,,,,,

    Is that Martinsville, OH or Martinsville, VA? IF the latter, is there any chance that you could connect with Slowhike in Winston and collect the big tarp? That's assuming it will fit in your vehicle.

    I believe we have at least two from my area going up... visionarylion & DavyRay.
    I'll drop them a PM & see if they can bring the big tarp.
    Bonepile may be going up from my area too but it sounds like he may not be there for the whole weekend.

    I would need to ride with someone in order to attend. No transportation so far. Looks like I will not make this one. If I did go, I'd be taking off Friday and Monday from work, to have all options open.

    I was planning to test some real cold weather gear, but y'all don't seem to have that sort of cold in the forecast. If I do make it there, i'd be glad to share the secrets of putting the big tarp up so high.

    I live in southern va I'm like 1.5 hr from you and daveyray, I don't think I will be able to bring the big tarp. I do however have a couple of extra Polly tarps that are 12*10 I think
