    Only four more weeks to go people, I know I'm excited what about y'all?

    In other news I've received a few items from our wonderful vendors that will enable us to have a charity raffle to help cover the facility costs and the rest will be distributed between HF, Friends of the MST, and our host park. Raffle entries will be $10 a piece, enter as many times as you would like. I've already PMed those who had donated ahead of time to inform them of the number of entries they gleaned.

    I will try to give a weekly update as the date grows closer.

    I can whip up a bugnet for your son by time of the hang.

    My ceramic smoker is too big and heavy to bring, so I will smoke a couple pork butts ahead of time and bring them. After being pulled they will only yield about 8 pounds, so I hope more folks are going to make BBQ.

    Catavarie, it looks like I won't be able to make it after all. Life seems to be happening all over the place right now. I have gone into the spreadsheet and have removed my name, etc. Thanks again for putting this together. Maybe next time.

    In reality, there is.

    A neighbor knocked down a tree today, so I've got a metric crapload of firewood that needs to get burnt up. Whatever will fit in the truck with the gear will come with me. It may be warm in the evenings (not sure about Raleigh weather that time of year), but what good is a campout without a towering inferno?

    That said, can we drive up to the group site to unload, or are we gonna have to haul this in by hand?

    Just a meager three weeks left. Time to start perfecting those recipes and gathering together the gear to bring. L.D.Cakes is wanting to the lead a paddle tour on the lake for lunch on Saturday and for those who want to join in on that, but either don't want to drag their boats or don't have a boat of their own fret not. There are several places locally that will rent paddle gear to you. Of course the local REI is one option that many people are familiar with. They charge $54 (member pricing) for the first day ($27 [member pricing]) each additional day) on a single person touring Kayak and $44/$22 (member pricing) for general purpose recreational kayak. REI does not count pick and drop off days against the fee so if you pick up on Friday and drop off on Sunday you only pay for Saturday. The guy I spoke with said they only have a half dozen boats to rent so if you are considering renting a boat from them then best to call early and reserve the boat. There is also Frog Hollow Outdoors in Durham and Paddle Creek in Wake Forest if REI is out of stock of their rentals.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Scooter. Hopefully all of those who have had to back out will be able to attend in the future.

    It will have to be carried about 20 feet from the parking lot to the fire ring. Real back breaking load I know, but I think we can all manage to build up a good BBQ Appetite.

    We will save you a couple. And will make sure they aren't like the ones we picked for Gresh at the Spring Swing
