    I can't commit just yet. Are we staying in the pioneer area or do we each need to reserve a camp site?

    I’ve been wanting to hang with everyone for a while. Never any meets in NC. If I don’t work that Saturday I might be keen on just driving down for the day if nothing else.

    It'll be a little over 3 hours for me, but I usually drive to the midwest for meets, so this is an easy ride.

    The RSVP isn't working for me. It's looking like I could make it as soon as I get my dentist appointment with the VA moved - it just happens to be on the 12th. I'm in Virginia and don't mind a little drive. If someone can PM with instructions that works for me. Thanks!

    7 hour drive for me and I'm a disabled old geezer. Buck up young feller! You only live once... and sometimes less.

    @MrFixIt Are you talking about a voluntary hike or a hike to the destination? Roughly how far if the latter? I have limitations and don't want to die in Georgia :eek: (or anywhere just yet lol).

    I guess I'll go anyway. Look forward to meeting everyone!

    As long as the members there aren't wearing Victoria secret I think everyone will enjoy themselves

    That's not a pretty picture to think about.

    So... about that weather. I looks like it's going to be a sunny weekend down there.

    So we have the The Group Pioneer spot reserved? Do we need to check in at a main station first to get a parking pass?

    Sorry to hear you had to cancel. That was just bad luck with hurricane Michael coming through right now and no one is going to fault you for that. Stay safe so we'll all have another chance to do this with you in the future.

    Thank you for the effort and the invite!

    Canceling was a good call I think.

    I didn't RSVP because I assent sure that I would make it for a few different reasons. The hurricane was one. I may be going to lyn n haven this weekend now,my wife has people down there. Guess there my people now,we've been together for 13 years.lol the biggest reason is a little different. I had to convince my wife that y'all sent internet weirdos that could be sex traffickers that are waiting to pounce upon me and sell me into slavery. I ain't kidding.she is still afraid of the dark.lol finally convinced her that y'all are good people and Michael showed up. Let's reschedulereschedule!

    Well how much does she reckon you might be worth on the, uh, down low, if you will. This could be an untapped opportunity.

    For some reason she values me pretty high. She is kind of strange. I'm pretty sure anyone that purchased me better keep the receipt. They would want a refund!

    The rain has been sitting on top of me for the last 7 hours and still has a ways to go according to the radar. Maybe the pond will fill back up without blowing out the dam.

    I was already packed, but I may head somewhere anyway.

    I'm wondering if I would get fired if I absconded from work just to have the opportunity to meet you guys in person. Yeah, I have no vacation time left and I probably would have poor data availability so, yeah ... I would end up jobless and as a result homeless as well, and possibly divorced ...

    Hmm, still wanna be there! :4:

    Thanks Joe.
    I understand why they revoked my leave. I have knowledge of all water/gas valves, all electrical services and have a key for every door in all 4 parks. If something were to wrong I’m the person who at least can get in!

    Now that's honesty right there and I fully represent that remark.
