“man, that free massage was nice”
“I am back!! Dub will be posting the trip report!!! Boy I had fun and way too much to drink!!”
“Waiting on a picture to start the trip report thread. It's worth the wait.”
“Dub, you can't do that dangid!! You're not digital!! It's gonna take you forever to get those pics online!!!
TRIP REPORT! (POUNDING FEET ON FLOOR AND HANDS ON DESK!!)”
I put a few pics up
“I only have a few though. They are under holy_cow1 if you look on webshots.com”
This is IMPORTANT
“The trip was a blast and I guess I drank too much last night 'cause I think I left my rain jacket on the back of a chair and drove home without it today!
So, if any of you guys happend to grab a blue Red Ledge rain jacket, uh, that was me.
Send me an email and I'll reimburse you for the shipping or if your coming to the Sodsfest, just bring it with you there.
Man, I felt really stupid when I was cleaning out my pack tonight to dry everything out.”
“There was a blue jacket on the back of a chair that aeilmaiden and fluffer (I know, she didn't know what a fluffer was when she chose her log-in name) packed. If thats not it, then Crosscut and Litefoot would have picked it up when they left since they were lucky. If Litefoot, then you you'll see it again, if Cross, then you'll see it again, but he will be wearing it ;)
BTW gem, I could give a trail report if you are in a hurry.”
“Gem, I am waiting on that picture from Rox...she has a digital. She's gonna send it to me tomorrow I think. I'll ready the trip report tomorrow as it's bedtime now. Lata.”
“If Cross got it, it won't fit! LOL
If it got gone, i guess it's no biggie, my own dumbas$$ fault anyway.
But I was hoping that somebody got my back on this one, maybe I got lucky afterall.”
“i saw it when we left last night..it was in the chair rox was propping her foot on..thought it was mine...same color...size..but you could tell it was brand new..so we left it there with a small daypack...hope you find it..was great meeting all the new pple..hope to hit a trail with you guys soon...”
“Cool Opie, I'm sure it'll find it's way back as long as someone grabbed it.
Destructoboy is hooked now. He told me on the way out of town this morning that he wants to Thru-Hike when he finishes college!
Bebo wants to make trail days again next year to.
Thanks to all you guys, the kids had a great time, you were all great to hang out with this weekend.”
“there won't be any next time for you when the child advocacy people come for you LOL”
I only have
“my purple mountain hardware jacket. I don't think I'll be drinking liquor again for awhile. At least not till my next backpack trip =)As much as I love camping, it is so nice to sleep in a big comfortable bed!”
“hey everyone. Good, everyone seams to be home. crosscut hasn't posted yet. Hope they are okay.
Hyway: don't worry about the tripreport...let dub post it. LOL
(yeah, I don't trust ya)
roam: Hope you find your jacket. I have some graham crackers and marshmallows from you. You will not be seeing them again though...my kids ate 'em :)”
“lol, I forgot all about those things, glad the kids enjoyed them :)”
“okay...if you write the trip report...don't forget to tell them that I had the dirtest trekking poles of traildays!!!
roam: they did!!
I am glad your kids had fun. I sure was glad alex helped me to put together this big a$$ tent of mine. It goes back to the store today. one of the poles was already broken. piece of crap!”
“Gem, I gave my kids those 3 foot long toboggans and they forgave me for leaving them home.”
“Yeah Gem, Alex was quite proud of himself for being able to help out.
Sarah wore her little halo thingy all the way home. I tried to get her to wear it to school today, or let me braid the streamers into her hair but she wouldn't do it.”
“Hmm, that reminds me carlette didnt' post yet either. Hope they made it okay.
roam you braid?? I am impressed!”
“I got an im from Carlette, they made it home safe.
Of course I can braid, she won't let me do it very often though, so I'm out of practice and slow. I can do dog ears too, but sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get them even.
I am multi-talented!”
“Damn Dub, where's that trip report! What are you doing, goin to class or something! Get your priorities straight man!”
“(This post somehow ended up on the wrong thread. Must have been the lingering effects of the weekend.)
On the last day, just before we left, I was rummaging through the $5 dollar box at the vendor that had the fleece thongs and found two 3 foot loog tobaggans. My kids loved them. I think my daughters would have gotten along great with your kids. Only I would be afraid of the carnage that would occur if my youngest and destructoboy got together."”
I was so bushed by the time I got home last night I left the computer on all night letting photos download...so I will have to mail that photo to you as soon as I get off work. We are in end of year grading so I have been in hostage being a monitor all morning then the kids come...so I will get it to you by 3:30..sorry for the delay ..but hey it will be worth the wait!!!
I did post some of my photos to webshots...ummm just punch in roxanns_world and it should come up but the one you want is not on there I don't think...
Not my best night last night..ankle is still big..not getting much relief either.
Just like to say how great it was to meet Dub, Roam and Smokeygirl!
“I would like to say the same. They were good people. Dub definitely is not the jacka$$ he plays on backpacker LOL. And smokeygirl is as nice as they come. Now roam, .....
And don't forget Opie and Miss Opie, but you may still have been in teh ditch when they came to sit by the fire.”
“rox, I'm not finding anything on webshots using "roxanns_world"...”
“Oh Hyway I already knew Opie...I meet Miss Opie this time though..(what little I saw of both of them *wink*) Funny they always seemed very happy when I saw them...but also...hmmm tired?
Hey Stove add an e to roxannes
and that should help.”
Ohhh and I meet stormbringer...for just a bit.”
“aiel is Sharon isn't she? if not then I'm stumped too, lol.”
“Good lord, you slept with the woman and you forget her name. I see how you are.”
“I had a great time this weekend! We will definately be back next year. It was nice meeting all the ones I have not met. I will post more later, I'm at work now.
I can't access webshots here at work for some reason. I want to see the pictures! I will try to get ours posted tonight.”
“I can send you an invite tonite Miss Opie. I can't look at webshots here either or I would finish my albums.
Oh see I didn't know Sharon made herself a nick on here yet..
I am not familiar with that name.”
“its short for Aielmaiden. her name on Carolina Hikers.”
“duh...ok a real blonde moment for me...(no offence anyone)
Hey yesterday Jennifer was telling me that someone was talking about a hike for Memorial weekend to Hot Spring NC..anyone know anything about that????”
“I figured out a way to look at them here at work rox - great pics!”
“I didn't see a single pic of Opie or Miss Opie in those...did y'all spend the ENTIRE weekend in the tent or something? lol....”
“I had one or two of them, but for some reason several of my pics didn't "take" or save for one reason or another. screen busted on my digi cam too this weekend. Glad it was a cheap one.”
“I hiked the Creeper Trail and took some pics through a cabin window. Could that be Opie and Miss Opie?”
“Okay, I'll have the TR ready by 3:30 for when Rox sends me the photo. Anything specific you want mentioned say it here or you can just add it after the post.
It was great meeting everyone, including WildBill4416 from the "other side." ;-) Hyway and cross were hillarious, Roam's a great dad, his kids are awesome, rox is great, carlette is porta-pottie scared for life ;-). It was great seeing Gem, the Opies, and Crash!Bang! again. Did I forget anyone? The CHers aiel/litefoot/fluffer all great too.”
Yes this is Sharon
“I had a different log in name for thebackpacker.com before but I knew noone would know me by that name so I changed it to aiel (use to be lunasc ~ that is the name my pics are under on here) At least Highway knew me! Rox I really do feel bad for your poor ankle. I have poison ivy all over the back of my leg if that makes you feel better.”
“aiel, you're lunasc!!! Omg, I remember when you first came to bp.com! It was great meeting you! Fill out your profile so we know who you are and we can email you. ;-)”
“I have always known you as lunasc. I think I asked you at the blueberry massacre if you were her.”
“Hey, I even knew who you were, geez. You were that really really quiet one. lol
Ok, my pics are up, something weird happend and several didn't save on the camera for some reason, cheap POS.
But anyway, here they are”
“And this would be my favorite of the whole batch, I think.
Big event this past weekend? Probably my little girl getting her first hitchhike ride, all by herself. I had fallen several steps behind her and Destructoboy walking back to the campground and she had that thumb up, got us all three a ride.
"snif" I was so proud of her!”
“Thanks for telling her the square root of 57018 is 7. She was shocked that I got that answer right LOL”
“yeah, that was hilarious, she didn't believe me either though, she went to ask Fluffer. Luckily Fluffer had heard enough to say 7 as well. Bebo finally decided that was right after that.”
“Partial Trip report is up. Report Couldn't find the pic of Cross assaulting bp.com”
I think people are normally named troll
“after they change their name but I did it so more people would know who I am. I am kinda quiet when in large groups of people unless there is some alcohol in my bloodstream. Dub I didn't know who you were at first either because I know you by your other name but after you were posting on CHers I look at your profile over here =)”
“Yeah Sharon I thought poision ivy was all over the place..wish I could ask Billie if she got it..thank God I am not allergic...weird allergic to almost everything else..but not ivy and oak..
Well the ankle is still letting me know it's there.. but hey gave me a perfect excuse to wear my new lemon yellow crocs to school.. I couldn't get the other shoes on my foot!! Up side to everything.
Well it was hard to take a photo of the Opies since they only came around either late at night ..after well I dont' know..but I did get to talk to them for a bit Sat night. They were both smiling so I am sure they enjoy themselves...”
