    I think the wizard is safe - I have to miss it this year. I’ll be attending a funeral on Saturday instead. Ya’ll be safe, and set a plate and say a prayer for a Great Lady.

    The Mrs and I stayed at the Comfort Suites when we visited for Millie day. It was much nicer than I expected.

    That sounds gay. But I know that is your thing and there's no shame, so Shane make sure you wear appropriate footware since you may choose to walk away :D

    EDIT I see that @LeeMajors took the high road and bailed out 'due to medical reasons'

    Get well soon man, and @Butter you may ride down in our Passat's spacious trunk. We will make wifi available. Please clean up after yourself.

    I'm still planning on driving down Friday after work from Raleigh. Hope to get away by 3:30-4, but still might not get there until 9 or so depending on traffic. On google maps it looks like there are two driveways where the road ends, I'm guessing signs will be up for the uninitiated. I plan on sleeping in my van, but hoping there are a few of you burning the midnight oil when I get there.

    Regarding food, will there be a way to heat things up or should I bring something that is good cold?

    I'm torn as to what firearms to bring, I guess a little of everything, lol.

    Really looking forward to meeting a lot of new people. Thanks Billy & Co. for making this happen.

    Thank you for the offers. Last year, everyone did a wonderful job of policing up after themselves and there wasn't much clean up.

    Edit*14 weeks, forgot about Turkey Day week and Christmas week.

    This years deployment started late, sales weasels didn't deliver on time. Last 2 years we started in June...but we're doing pretty good considering the late start. 6 weeks in and we're almost halfway.

    I took off half-day today and will get a hair cut. Not sure which one to get cut though, but I'll be at least one short. @BatteryOaksBilly @Geezer @Millie I will see all y'all for breakfast tomorrow morning with the beautiful ginger on my arm (or carrying my stuff!) and I look forward to seeing everyone else that I haven't met or have met and forget your name. I was debating on bringing any long guns but I feel the need to waste some .308 ammo on the 300yd range with everyone.

    I sure wish I could make it to the B&M trip but due to wife's schedule and working for a living, I'll be lucky to check in my room before 7. Then bribe the wife with the LuLuLemon store, dunner and maybe drink a cold one or 2.

    Y'all be safe and have fun tomorrow. Wife and I were planning to attend, but I'm meeting a forestry mulcher up on my new property in Laurel Springs tomorrow. They finished their jobs this week and he said he can do it first of the week if we agree on the price. So I will have to wait until next time.
