Sorry, short notice, but Dody and I just decided we needed to get out and camp/cook and hang out.

Map to location coming soon. He is just a few miles north of Gatesville. Semi-primitive camping (toilet up the hill) or hotel camping in town. Big fire and good food is typical.

I've missed the last couple, so I'm gonna try to make this one - probably just Sat night, I doubt I can get a full weekend pass...

Definitely a last minute thing. Between the Hico pie run coming up and some other things, this seemed like the best weekend. He's got a good pile of wood for the Saturday bonfire.

I'll be watching the weather. I can do cold, or I can do wet(ish), but I can't do cold and wet....

Nice to see the rain forecast has moved to Friday. If it is just me and Dody then I don't have to worry about people camping down range. :rofl:

Check with Dody (Ghostrider) about access on Thursday night. Would probably be only you and the goats.

Yeah, I'm probably out. Looks too wet on Friday, too cold on Sat. I like my new heated gear, but not THAT much...

I may come down there Saturday, but if it gets as cold as they are talking for Saturday night into Sunday morning, I may leave early ! My old bones don't do cold as well as they used to, especially my hands ! ! !

Guys, it is a Freezeree, it is supposed to be cold. All the more reason to have a fire. That being said, if I can't get away on Friday early enough to beat the rain, I'll head up Saturday morning.

I like a good freezeree, the wild cherry flavor, on a hot summer day

If I woulda been able to go I think I would have tried out the new air mattress I got for my birthday for the back seat of the truck

Will it be cold enough to set around the campfire with a battery and heated gear plugged in . Bought two new batteries for my truck today , would be easy to do .

I've seen people do that, but haven't felt the need myself. It does mean that I'll be bringing my down liner for the my down sleeping bag though.

Be advised...It will be cold...but not supposed to get much precipitation as of right now. 50% chance of rain but only up .1" of accumulation. Pond is almost full and creek is still flowing but slowing down.... There will be no shortage of wood for fire:thumb:

Sheesh , I'm 44 and still Invincible? Not quite, but would love to land on Sat afternoon and see that ya'll make it safely through the nights activities :-) You know, no missing paint, broken bones, punctured radiators, burning tents etc.

According to the RSVP list at the beggining of this thread, Silverbullet (80%) and I are the only ones seriously planning on attending. If you are coming, please use the register button. It is one of the features of the new forum software that is just starting to get some use.

And I'm still in the same position. If the rain Friday is for the evening, I may try and beat it up there, but will wait until Saturday morning to head up if it is actively raining on Friday afternoon. Specially since I may be the only one there...Dody gets to sleep at home.

I updated mine to "In", meant to do it earlier but needed to get to a PC. Also I think there was a couple others coming per posts but didn't do the RSVP thing.

I'm arriving Friday afternoon around 3 to 4'ish. As long as we have a fire I'm good with whatever weather we get.

Saturday I'm planning to ride the Roll the Bones Rally Raid route from 2017 if anyone else wants to ride.

I'm still a maybe so can't commit to pushing the button yet, Rusty's sanity will have to hold out :pray:
It'll depend on Saturday's flow if I can get out.
