First roadside repair is done. Left at 6am, lost headlights. One bulb was probably out, the other didn’t like waking up on a cold morning. Unloaded the car to get to the one spare i left with the spare tire. And i almost grabbed my huge collection of bulbs to share with people. Now, do i buy an h11, or wait to use one of the 10 i have at home? Ok, i’ll be safe and buy one.
Now our setback put us in westbound 495 traffic jam.

I made 4 sticks of magical butter. I'll keep at least one for treats and the other 3 are for sale. Anybody have any special requests for infused items? It works best with foods that are sweet or savory that you would normally use butter to cook. Not quite sure when I will arrive but it should be this evening sometime

We had a great drive down the blue ridge to the closure at roanoke. Stopped for food, stopped on 81 for at least a half hour due to an accident. 15 hrs on the road, then got to see so many beautiful friends.
We have stuff to do, and were under-prepared in terms of car-camping (245 next year), blankets, and warm Stacey clothes.
We split off from the drive on those amazing roads, hit Asheville, ate, did a 9 mile hike.

Here are a few of the pics I have from the weekend. More to come.

I really have to thank all y'all for chipping in on everything this year. This was the smoothest year yet for meal prep, cooking, and cleanup, and we were done cleaning the lodge at 10am. That's a record, and we've about got this down to a science at this point.

Kenny running point on the bbq, Matt with some of the best bbq chicken I've ever put in my face hole, TequilaMark with the bomb-ass ribs and sous vide creations, MrBill on the mac and cheese, James the grits master, Sarah and Dana on cleanup, the list goes on and on and on. Bayleigh and I might host this meet, but it really takes a village. I'm glad we've got such an awesome crew that we can keep doing this year after year.

Y'all are great. I'm looking forward to 2022 already.

PFP. Let's see that lovely trailer.

me, upon seeing "high" mounted 4-way-flashers blink on the shoulder: is that a volvo?

bne: yup, I think so.

(we get closer, see it's a V70)

me: Is that Scotty?

bne, whips head right as we pass by: it is! (just as I see the rimz)

How Sunday started (granted, the starter died on Saturday so I had to keep it running):


Then the driver side rear wheel bearing got noisy and a bit loose in Tennessee. No way it was going to limp home another 350 miles.
So the Miata finished the trip with the ride of shame.


Even my piece of crap PV managed to make it back home under its own power from SE and MM meets. Come on Miata!

It was ridiculously fun to drive in the NC mountains though.

What a great weekend. Its amazing after all of these years the core group of Tbrickers still get together like this. The weather could not have been any better " it will be 90 in Bama on Thursday :( " The food was amazing and the work everyone did to make this happen is just legendary. Thanks Jared and Bayleigh for all of your prep work to make this thing happen so smoothly. The 2JSwede took the easy ride to and from but got some good abuse on the mountain.

Already looking forward to next year

-Sam and Sarah

The lady and I had a blast! It was great to meet those that I did, wish I made a point to get familiar with more of the unfamiliar faces. It was great meeting many of you in person finally. Internet friends for a decade and all that.

Hoping next year we'll be out in something Volvo powered.

I felt bad it took me like 12 hours to introduce myself to your wife! Good to hear she enjoyed it. Hope to see you both back next year.

No need to feel bad, it's my fault. I wasn't the best at introducing people.
