    Its way to early to predict the weather...but  usually its just an occasional thunderstorm. Weather has always been good. There is plenty of shelter if there is rain and the large building/kitchen/ lounge area.

    hope to see ya there

    Jax I sent you a PM hopefully it works out. Dothan is certainly an option as well I was there this week and it is about 1:15-1:30 hours drive but an easy drive with little traffic

    Thanks for forgiving.  Keith, I hope no hard feelings.  I was frustrated as my whole family has been looking forward to this for some time and they started giving me grief about not being able to attend. I should have handled it better.

    We will be there.  May swing by Friday afternoon/evening as we make our way to Dothan.  But we will be there Saturday.

    I'm bringing a big bag of pork rinds.  Have a fryer ready.

    Y'all pack rubber boots or extra shoes it may be wet. We are going to carry on and have fun but we may be doing that in the rain but then again it wouldn't be the first time. It started raining here last Thursday and didn't really stop till late yesterday and they say another day or two of it this week. Smokers and wood are under the pole barn where they've been since before the rain started.

    Joe your spot will be ready when you get here looking forward to it

    Bob you know y'all will be missed. I know about that falling too did that trick yesterday still hurting.

    The roads coming in are wash boards so go slow and easy. Those with RV's that road is also like a wash board but is driveable. The road just inside the gate is underwater not deep maybe up to the bottom of the rim. It is solid under it and shouldn't be a problem. Just don't make a wrong turn I went down earlier and was going to drain the road got down where the corn was last year and buried the tractor 40 minutes of fun getting it out.
