Sumna Beach

It looks like work has reared its ugly head, and I'll be lucky if I show up to visit.

My dad has been gracious enough to let me borrow his Mazda 3. The MR2 is just a little too small for this trip :lolsign:.

I'm bringing some enviro-logs and I'm going to try for 4pm arrival (so realistically it will be 5 or 6pm ;)).

310 miles here I come! :party: :sick2:

Well it depends on what weather report you look at, but it's likely Today (Friday) we will get a little rain. Good news is that it is going to be warm (about 70) today. The rest of the weekend and into Monday shows no rain. :) I'm leaving shortly to make the 2.5 hour drive - which should put me there about 12:00. See you all then --Tim

I'm heading out... It'll be a bit longer of a drive for us. Shooting for 1 or 2, I should say.

Wow!! Weather man - what a job, be wrong about the weather 90% of the time, and still get a pay check! LOL. Well after all the talk about rain and wind... Nothing but perfect camping weather! Literally perfect weather today :) no rain last night, and no rain forecast for the rest of our stay. All the lights from Dorcy and Energizer are a big hit. Campground is awesome. An astrology group is doing some kind of show tonight, which we will likely check out. And a night hike around the lake is likely too. Sandy's wife brought baked ziti, sausage, and brownies for all of us... Super yummy. Bill and Ike made a killer breakfast with bacon, eggs, and custom omelettes - again yummy! Of course tons of really cool lights to check out. Bummer I can't post pictures from my phone. But I'm taking a bunch and will post them when I get back. --Tim

What a great 2 days at the campout...amazing weather. Here is a photo of the goose neck light I received. It has a strong magnetic base. Base plate is under my hat....

I did not take any photos at the campout...some of the other guys did. This is just a test photo, it's been a long time since I posted a photo...

Everybody got 3 or 4 lights. Some of them were really amazing...

Carrot and his dad cooked up a ton of food....I don't know why I even bring any!

Later

- It was pretty cold overnight - 28 maybe - bottle of water left out overnight was frozen in the morning! But it warmed up quickly, and Stan and Mike made a bunch of great pancakes and bacon which warmed us right up!

Hi Everyone - FCW-10 turned out to be great! The weather really worked out - just a little drizzle one night, but the remainder of the time it was really nice out (a bit cool on Sunday night). What a great group of guys, tons of great food, and wow - so many cool lights!! I'm a bit behind at work - after being out for two days, but as soon as I catch up I'll post a few pictures and elaborate a bit more on everything that went on. --Tim
