    Felt bad knowing Hickery must have been in one. All I could do was proceed to send back help

    He pulled the other 4wds out when they got in a jam

    Thing1 would have been wearing a cape and sporting a wand. This beast was the biggest fire in the woods I've ever seen.

    Envious for a bit, from down here
    Wide open fun as long as the fear factor doesn't get in. We all knew we were in deep **** but no-one let on

    Yeah. While it's happening it's a cluster-bomb, and afterwards it's an adventure

    No coolers needed. Just for transportation

    Awesome trip RF & HB. I don't think I really need to eat for the next few days, that mystery meat is still doing a number on me. Food and drinks all weekend were great. HB, kudos to the Mrs. HB for her culinary talents. Hickery, kudos for the "cajun" grilled cheese samiches.

    In answer to your question Shug . . . Yes, we be ready fer de mountian of Rogers. The true question is will all those others planning to attend be ready for Hangin' Burrito ? Just when you seem to think you have it licked. . . there always 1 more question from HB to be answered !

    Looking forward to Mt Rogers

    Glad to hear that everyone made it out safely, assuming Hickery did as well.

    Just going camping on the Chattooga River where NC, SC, and GA all meet. It's my favorite spot in the area and really close by
