“Dayhiker: heh.. I didn't lose.. I came in 5th.. and hey.. it ain't about winning.. it's about being there.. having fun..
“bring chairs and firewood!”
“or chairs you can make firewood out of.”
“My babysitter(sister) is wafting on me. That coupled with the cold weather is making it a no-go for my wife and I. I'm "negotitating" a solo trip. I still hope to see yall up there. I'm now down to 50/50. I personally think the cold weather is an excellent opportunity for me to test out my backpacking gear for colder temps than I'm used to. If I'm cold then I break out an extra sleeping bag. It's a whole lot better to do it this way then 10 miles from a trail in the Smokies.”
“Hey TD, are you gonna have areas for the different websites to camp.
I can see it now, ok folks the people from thebackpacker.com gets this cozy area and you folks from the other side get that muddy water area.
With all the love between the two sites this could be interesting...lol”
“I am bringin my tommahawk!”
“"I am bringin my tommahawk!"
To chop up chairs? Or to take hairs?”
“dayhiker: cold weather?.. lol.. this ain't nothing.”
“Come on dayhiker...just make a run for it!
Tell her you're going to the store and then just head North!!”
I CAN SEE IT NOW..
“On the next release of America's Funniest Home Videos --
"I ran away from home.. to go hiking/backpacking with my friends!"”
“35 more minutes and I am heading east!”
“She said she'll feel better if I was going with someone. I knew StoveStomper was coming through B'ham so I asked if by someone she meant someone I knew or one of my axe murderer internet buddies. She said definately not an internet person. I countered with asking if MDS counted. We've hiked together about 4 times. She didn't answer.”
“Just picked up the keg, and 10 liters of wine, see ya tomorrow!”
I want to puke!!!
“Just found out that hubby has to work on saturday! I cna't belive this #&%!$. Okay, I am coming anyway. If I cna't find a sitter, I will have to bring the kids.
question: I am so excited about the night hike. What to do with the kids? Take them, just let them sleep in the tent?
hey, maybe even a sitter service available (I wish)”
“Another humble request: please post winning recipes!”
“i'll bring an extra bag one of the kids can use.”
Let ole Jerbear sit with the kiddies! Hee hee
“Gem: Either. I have found that some of the best decisions are made ad hoc. :)”
what a bunch of whiners...
“hubby workin...wife screamin...kids a comin...
Just show up and have a good time...ignore the wife, bring the kids, shoot the hubby...
see ya all there friday evening...keep your ears open for pink floyd or YES played at top volume as I pull into the CG...It ain;t a party till I get there...thems the rules...hehehe
I think Josh (now buttape) said it a long time ago...its all about Stikmon...well...he was right...see ya there ya bunch of demented pansies...and we will need identifiers for all the solo ladies tents...panties flying from tent poles...this is for Buddah Bear, as he will be looking to get him "some" this weekend.”
“this thing is at the Bandy Creek group campground, right?”
don't call me a whiny butt... .:(
“I hate getting bad news right before the actual day. the bags I have for the kids are heavy, I mean heavy!!!!! they are those regular camp bags, and probably way 20 lbs :)
No matter what, I will come, and if I hav to pull the kids by their nose!
I'll be there either friday or saturday. If i cant find a sitter I will be there friday already, if I find a sitter, it will be most likley saturday morning or I'll wake you all up friday late night :)”
“No, it is NOT at the Bandy Creek Group Campground.
If you go there, you won't find us.”
Tes, stikmon, it is at Brandy Creek Campground.
I can't stand all the competition for the females! NOT> :)”
“if it isn't at bandy creek, you better tell where it is.
I might not be to only one who don't remember all the particulars. putz (not you TD, the other putz, the one with his dickcaught in his zipper.”
“(still can't belive he called me a whinny butt, golly!!! I just tried to figure out how to do this)
anyway, I have a babysitter, so no extra bags are needed. Lucky, lucky!! see you all in a couple of days.
any you...you who called me a whinny butt! better watch out! I'll kick your butt :)”
“got no hair to bring.”
“If I weren't being held against my will I would truely love to attend, and the closer it gets to the event date the more I want to be there.
Hope everything goes as well, if not better, than expected.”
“hmm, buddur, want me send the cops over? I had to listen to a very disapointed "yes, I guess..." (but I did ask while his parents was over our house, so he could not say no) I am still guessing he is working saturday on purpose. Just wait and see, on friday he tells me that he doesn't have to work (because I found a sitter).
it's gonna be soooo much fun!!!”
“...in case you are reading my threads....(thought I caught there for a minute a couple days ago)
I still love ya :)”
“Just got packed up. Man, I'm taking a lot of stuff. Looks like I'm ready for the South Pole. I don't like to get cold. Ha.
Good thing we are only 1/4 mile from the parking lot. I'm NOT an ultralighter for this trip!
Leaving after work tomorrow afternoon, hope to get at least as far as B'ham. The plan is to reach TC2 before dark Friday.
“I am leaving very late, so it will be night or very early in the morning when I get there.
stovestomper, what are you all packing? I don't want to overpack but think that I can still leave some stuff in the car.”
“Not sure if your're going, but I found a recipe in a very old cookbook that might interest you, LOL! I can't go (baby duty) but I'll send it up with HPM.
HINT-it's a recipe for fudge.”
“I'm taking everthing....
Little Henry Shires TarpTent.
Two different sleeping bags plus a down liner. Full size foam pad, 3/4 thermorest ultralite.
Two stoves, one alcohol, one white gas. Big coffee pot (I expect to be very popular in the mornings). Ultralite cook kit.
Lots and lots of warm clothing.
A little backpacking food (I MAY enter the comp).
Lots of snacks.
A gallon of wine, and a bottle of peppermint schnapps.
Other stuff as needed.
All of this stuff fits into a GVP G4, GoLite Breeze, and Golite Day Packs.
bblinkley would be proud of how heavyweight I am.
Oh, and some reindeer to guard my tent.”
"if it isn't at bandy creek, you better tell where it is.
I might not be to only one who don't remember all the particulars. putz (not you TD, the other putz, the one with his dickcaught in his zipper."
ya like that did ya BB???
“are ya gonna be there???
I should be there late fri night...save a space on the lawn...got the big 56 man geodosic tent in the car already.
See ya all there!!!”
“stikmon...want a spot next to the HMWHC clubhouse i'm setting up?...liquor in front and poker in back. May have to set it up as a speak-easy/opium den...the code word..is "six hour boner"
i'm in huntsville, packing in the morning, staying in nashville tommorrow after buying what's left at REI and BRMS...should be at TC2 around 11ish on friday”
*laughing*...THIS IS OPIE..too lazy to sign out
“that sure looks funny if you read it thinking it's michelle...she's gonna kill me tommorrow..lmao”
“Car is packed. 70 pound backpack with the beer, so this will not be an ultrlight week end. No lunches, may have to sample the fudge.”
“Opie, I'll be there tonight, and will have space set aside for HMWH Dome, to go along with the HMWH 10x20 tarp and HMWH Buddha Bar. I think you'll be able to spot us.
This is kinda like car campin! I'm so ashamed.”
“Truck is packed - finished up at ten last night...just started chucking crap in, I guess it's going to be a suprise what I brought or didn't bring. The main thing is I got the beer, so all will be well.
Leaving work today a noon, if the creek doesn't rise and God willing should be there around midnight.
Where the heck is this thing? TN?”
“today is only thursday right?? dno't want to leave late because I mixed up the day.. LOL”
“At what temperature does beer freeze? An important question for you ultra light(beer) packers.”
“You all travel safely and have fun!!!”
“"Most lagers are served at between 4 and 6 °C, and freeze solid at -2.5 °C."
From an interesting article Sub-zero Beer
25 October 2000”
“I've had beer with me at colder temps than that and didn't freeze. I've had it around 10 degrees and not frozen.
OPIE-Hollar at me if your coming to REI on Thursday. I work across the street from there..Just a thought. ...If not I'll see everyone at TC2.”
“Miserable weather on the drive from Memphis to Crossville (where I am at present). Low overcast today with rain (you better bring ground cloth, it has rained for about three days here). Area forecast is to clear up by tomorrow.
Highs expected in the low 40's...lows in the lower 20's to upper teens.
We will have fair weather for the weekend but the ground is going to be soft.
I am happy to see I am not the only one with a ton of gear...LOL.”
