    3rd annual Mt Rogers Hang out

    I know it's still a few months away, but we may as well start planning for it. So, when are we doing the Mt Rogers Freeze your assets off hang out this time? I vote for: Jan 16, 17 & 18 Or Feb 6, 7 & 8
    Or Feb 27, 28 & Mar 1, altho I feel that is a bit late. I'm also free Dec 5, 6 & 7 and 26, 27 & 28.

    We can post a poll later, now is to just get the ball rolling & people thinking.

    I'm game about any weekend with enough advance notice. I definitely want in on this one now that I have some good "kwality" insulation.

    Once we get a range of dates I will edit this thread and add a poll.

    Right after Christmas is bad for me. I'll be in the Cincy area then and we can have a couple pints at Happ's.

    Depending on the work schedule I'm in for anytime in Janurary. I like that month just because of the flight factor. Cheaper and easier in Janurary.

    Am I correct to think that Knoxville is the closest airport?

    I'm probably going if the weather isn't too bad anywhere down Rt. 81. Keep in mind anyone who wants to carpool from Mid-Atlantic region I have a car that gets 60 mpg. 6th of Dec would be tough because I will be out of vacation. December 26th is the first day of Kwanzaa and I may have family things, but I am off work so it may be very good timing. Anytime in Jan is Ok. Feb 8th is my b-day do I rather not be driving 8 hours.

    I'm up for mid Jan or Feb. (late Feb is too late, imo). December would be difficult. Lots of familial obligations in December.

    Tricities Regional Airport - Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City area is probably the closest airport

    Or you could take a flight up to near Dutch & carpool... or to Greensboro & ride w/ me... but I may not be able to get that fri off (although I am checking out another job possibility).

    It may still be to hot in Dec & Feb is to long to wait<G>, but I'll try to make it when ever yall decide.

    Mt Rogers is ideal in my thoughts but there again, I'll just try to go w/ the flow.

    I say keep it at Mt Rogers and keep the tradition there.

    Thanks for the airport suggestions and the ride offers. I want to fly as close as I can. I figure no reason to fly into another airport just to ride longer in a car.

    Good point! And I'm for keeping the Mt Rogers Area tradition, but that's just me.
