So....it's just camping now? :lol:

no doubt.

Yeah I'm really bummed about it. I can try to set up some sort of 2-3 night campout if y'all want. Won't be quite as excellent as the lodge, but better than nothing.

Not always, but that period of September is generally conducive to camping weather-wise.

Manbeard 06-29-2020 09:24 PM

you didn't have to cancel it just because i couldn't come this year...

linuxman51 06-30-2020 09:19 AM

we weren't going to tell you, but the core group got together and decided that since we all knew you'd bitch out for SOME REASON, we'd beat you to the official punch and just cancel the whole dadgum thing

Sounds like some illuminati ****, but ok.

I mean I wasn't going to vote that way, but the table lobbyists :ahem: made it worth my while to protect their interests.

Sorry to hear the event is scrubbed for 2020. Here are a couple memory shots from the inaugural event in 2015, Labor Day weekend:

Hope those mexican sodas were worth it.

edit: and also, happy birthday. I'm in the woods with no service, so no texts for a few days.

double edit: remote, but not WNC remote. have internet and didn't have to send a hotspot up on a weather balloon.

propav8r 07-02-2020 10:40 PM

Yeah, I'm thinking for 2020 we do something low-key along the lines of the first year. I have a friend with some camping-friendly land out towards the Dragon I'll hit up, that way we're still safe from cancellations.

As soon as the forest service processes my refund for the lodge, I'll begin refunding those who sent a deposit already.

That first year at that camp ground near the Dragon was pretty fun. A lot less people that first year, and we packed in that camp ground, but still fun.

Keep my food money for beer, since you go through a lot to do this.

boostdemon 07-08-2020 03:07 PM

i think we need 3-4 more mini-meets this year in the mountains.... 1 for RWD, 1 for P2's, 1 for off-road and bicycles, and 1 for motorcycles :)

Thanks for posting those! Nice to see my car on the road! :lol:

The Blue 244 (pictured) has been sitting the last couple of years. Finally finishing my PhD next week, then moving to New Mexico in August for a great job. Should (finally) be building a nice drivetrain for the car over the winter.

best breakfast convo ever.

My boss was very confused when I showed up to work today, and for a minute I was confused as to why. Then I was just depressed, so I said **** it and came home and put new injectors in the R. Better luck next year, hopefully.

mikep 09-11-2020 08:05 PM

My phone is still reminding me. 2 more days of reminders to go.
