    Just got off the phone with Hamhocker. She had to buy a breathing machine and get some medicine for it. She has to use it twice a day and breathe the medicine into her lungs to loosen the crap up in there. With the forecast calling for thunderstorms and rain for Sat and Sun I am not sure we will be making it. It isn't worth getting her sicker than she is. The lake will be there so maybe we can do this again later on this fall if we can't make it. We will know more come Friday morning.

    She got it from my grandson who is also on a breathing machine because of it...**** viral infections

    Gees Louise she needs to take care of herself! I have asthma, and upper respiratory issues are my life story. Been there before and don't wanna go there again! If she's taking an antiviral med she will get well pretty quick but be sure before heading out.
    Take care, Cakes

    April 20-22 Lake Santeetlah Paddle/Camp/Hang


    Some folks who are coming from a distance are camping at Cheoah Point Campground on Thursday night. Camping is free, first come first serve with bathrooms & showers. The ones coming in on Friday can meet up with everyone sometime 1:00 PM on Friday at Cheoah Point Boat Ramp and shove off to spend Friday & Saturday nights at any one of these spots on the lake. On Friday night bring something good to grill because I'm bringing the charcoal! We hope to paddle one day and hike one day weather permitting. On the way out on Sunday afternoon many want to go out to eat somewhere in Robbinsville too, after a hot shower of course back at the campground!

    Who's Coming:

    L.D. Cakes
    Islander
    Slo + 1
    Ice
    Rain Man & Stitch
    Tweakie

    Maybe Coming

    Stitch and I will meet y'all there at 1:00 tomorrow. We'll try to reach you as we're en route from Nashville to confirm ETA. Once we're close, we'll turn on the walkie-talkies (so turn yours on, especially if you hit the lake before we arrive).

    We're looking forward to the whole weekend!

    P.S. Ewker, please tell Hamhocker that we'll all miss you both and to take care of herself.

    Hamhocker since moving to Tenn has developed has asthma and allergies. She never had them while living up north. Her allergist told her he moved to Nashville because it is one of the cities with the highest allergy rates in the US...nice to know isn't it.

    At this point we are a no go for this trip
    We hate to miss this trip since we have been looking forward to it for a while.

    Looks like the weather is changing and you will have a great weekend...sigh

    I heard from Island earlier. He's there at the campground and said there is plenty of room! And the day is clearing up with the front moved on.
    I'm headed that way as soon as I can get out of work here and hope to be there before dark. Slo & his Brother should be showing up sometime today and the rest will be meeting us all at the Boat Ramp tomorrow at 1:00.
    Anyone on the road...Safe Journey!

    L.D., Stitch and I had a GREAT time and appreciate all your time and efforts to arrange the whole outing for everybody. I know that takes time and sometimes a bit of angst.

    And thanks to Islander for Sunday dinner of fresh trout and deep-fried Oreos! YUMM!!! Much appreciated.

    I have uploaded about 6 dozen photos to my Flickr account. If you two will shoot me your email addresses, I'll grant you access.

    I had a great time too! Even the long paddle out against that fierce head wind! I'll get to writing up the report soon and will include some of those pics!
