    Silly me and I was thinking about camping within about 20min of said pass... In winter no less (once I get my winter gear together.)

    This past August I took a canoe trip for a couple nights down the James River and each night it stormed like crazy. I stayed dry, and the rain on the tarp was like rain on a tin roof. Ultra soothing. I feel like with the right gear, I would attempt to brave any condition at least once.

    Not due to rain but my brother and I cancelled our second night out a few weeks ago when it was going to be in the low 20s for the second night. Main reason we left for the homestead was really due to terrible deer movement. If we had of seen deer that first day we would have stayed overnight and hunted the second.

    I would vote to go. You have at the worst a 50% chance of nice weather at the worst. You have decent equipment and good judgement, what is a little rain, if it does come? I grew up in Western Oregon, we did everything in the rain. Just be prepared, as long as you are not expecting any ice storms or threatening weather, you should be fine. I love the sound of the rain, when I am warm and dry and have the proper equipment with me.

    Otherwise? "Y'see, this one time, when I was hiking through..." makes for a good story to trade over a beer...
    Although FLRider says this, here is his trip report. I also add that I love this trip report. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=40512

    Just prepare what you can and enjoy the rest.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Know the limits, yours included. Other than that it's mind over matter for me. If I don't mind it don't matter.
