For anyone heading up Friday Morning, a few of us are meeting at 9:00am at the CVS store in Oakwood, GA.

We will then travel up Hwy 53 to 75 just south of Dalton. This keeps us off the interstate as long as possible.

Anyone heading up 75 tomorrow? It looks like the weather is clearing or at least not pouring. So we may head up tomorrow to camp at least one night. I'm not sure what time we're leaving yet, but I'll check back here in case schedules match up.

Can anyone report on the ground conditions for the campground? If the gravel lot is full I imagine the other areas are a swamp by now.

The reports I'm getting is that it is not too wet in the campground. We won't be on 75 till almost Dalton.

Hmm, the Oakwood and Gwinnett folks could all be getting to the Calhoun/Dalton area around 11ish it seems.

I may cruise that way and be on the look out. I was about say "get there and slow down" but that's never a problem! Laughing

The campground is fine. The rain subsided early this evening and there are no issues with flooding.

I would like to thank everyone who came out to our show last weekend. I know the weather was not in our favor this year, and Sunday was pretty much washed out. Despite all this, we had a great crowd Saturday and we were able to raise $16,000 for the Ronald McDonald House in one day. That's fantastic!

Great show, I appreciate all the effort you put into it. R McD House is a great organization. They were gracious to my nephew while he was at Duke University for bone marrow/stem cell transplant. We registered our bug but the condenser failed on the way up. We were able to get it back home, but couldn't find any parts Friday (everyone was at the show). We came up anyway. Kinda glad we weren't in the bug Sunday. It poured headed south back to Atlanta.
