    I wouldn't mind staying in the shelter, as I'm only able to come for the one night it'll save me from setting up the tent.

    You got it. And so now there are three beds left. Perhaps one of the guys sleeping in their vehicle wants in on the shelter? BimmerBoy perhaps?

    Thanks, Tim, for posting the weather and fire ban (that is lifted) info here since I was not able to get time online.

    It will be cold at night, so people should be prepared for that.

    Otherwise, it will be campfire as per usual and I am so happy to hear that.

    My plan is to get there at about 1:30 pm on Friday. See you'all there!!!

    Good morning everyone. Despite a wet rainy night, it is turning out to be a beautiful morning already. Forecast says sunny and a bit Breezy today. The sun is already out drying things up and there is a light Breeze which is forecast to become a little stronger later today. Should turn out to be perfect camping weather this weekend. 0% chance of rain for the rest of today and 0% chance of rain for Saturday :-) 20% chance of rain later in the day on Sunday, which shouldn't effect us because we should be packed up and out of there by midday. I should be there around 1:30 today. The wood that BimmerBoy has helped us secure will not be ready till after 2 pm. And the guy suggests that we come with a pickup truck to pick it up. Does anyone who's coming have a pickup truck that can take a ten-minute ride over to get the wood for everyone? If not, maybe several of us can go over in our cars and fill our trunks with some wood. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone soon. I hope some of you are bringing great flashlights that you no longer want, I always love coming home from these events with the new light :-)

    Hi, if you are arriving after 6 p.m. The main gate to the park will be closed. Just cut through the little office parking lot and come down through the exit side until you are past the gate and then just follow down the road until you see the campground signs and find our spots.

    Wow - basically perfect weather for three straight days!! A little cool on Friday night, but no rain all three days of camping! Actually, and almost on cue, about an hour after the official check out time had past on Sunday afternoon, a few of us were still hanging out by the campfire, and it started to drizzle. I guess that was the camping gods saying, don't push it, time to go. LOL

    I think everyone had a nice time. Many lights were sold / bought / traded, and are being enjoyed by their new owners. Good food and fun stories were shared around the campfire, and it was great to see old friends, and make some new ones.

    Overall the campground was a hit, and everyone seemed to love the awesome views of the lake all day long, which created the perfect backdrop to our event. The picturesque sunsets as well as the moon reflecting off the lake at night made for some great photos as well.

    Plans are already in the works for a springtime FCW/SM/GT#16, so stay posted!

    Thanks again to everyone for everything (especially Stan who helped get things rolling).

    Many thanks to Tim & Stan for setting this up! The turnout was great for sure.

    Like Tim said, the weather was perfect the whole weekend. Even the night time temps, that I was somewhat dreading leading up to weekend, weren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be! I still think the rangers actually have sprinklers up in the trees and it was just a little warning that it was time to go.....

    Other than coming home with just as much stuff as I went with (not all the same stuff) and owing people money I might even say it was the perfect weekend!

    I, for one, am totally looking forward to FCW/SM/GT#16.

    Thanks to Tim and Stan for a fine event and location....except for the poison algae and no dogs! Great seeing everyone again!

    Hopefully I'll get some more pics up at a later date.....

    Tim - FCW 15 was totally awesome, and thanks again for organizing yet another successful get together. I had a lot of fun, and wish I could've gotten there Friday. However, I made up for it a bit by hanging out with MrMom until 10:00 PM Sunday!

    These things are so enjoyable, my only regret is not attending before #14. It was a pleasure seeing everyone (some going as far back as 11 years now), and meeting a few new people as well.

    Seriously looking forward to FCW 16!!!

    P.S. : My apologies to those tenting right behind my car as I fell asleep with the engine on for heat. Meant to turn the damn thing off! Hope it wasn't too noisy, or kept anyone awake. If so, I owe you one. One of what, I'm not sure yet, but will make it up to ya'.

    It was Scott's brother, and friends who were right behind me. In fairness to myself though, I'm not exactly sure the car was on all night as it was off when I woke up. What's making me think I slept with it on for a while is the water was still up to temp when I turned it on in the morning. Nonetheless, I wanted to put the apology out there just in case.

    I did give them advance notice before they set up that I'd probably turn it on occasionally. They said "no problem" and proceeded to set up right behind my exhaust... lol. Apparently, no one can resist Bimmer fumes. It is, after all, the ultimate driving machine!

    Hi Gary - the CPF lurker who came by and bought a few lights. I wanted to get in touch with you. As you mentioned, you are local to the Spruce Run area, and so am I. I have a bunch of lights I'm looking to sell that you might be interested in. Maybe we can meet up at Spruce Run sometime. If you are still checking into this thread, you should join CPF, and reach out to me. I hope to hear from you. --Tim
