Bet you eventually dried out, too! I consider that a precedent.

Present forecast for Saturday is sketchy, but Friday looks great! I'll be there both days. Since I'm trailering the Hunley, I'll bring a couple pop-up canopies and some chairs. Would love to bring three bikes (two for sale), but only have a one-bike trailer.

It looks like some of you are bringing parts for sale...
If anyone has a good looking 1981 subframe for sale, we could meet Saturday.

Went there to help Patrick with setup today. Turned into a beautiful day. Some of the guys were fishing in the river behind the fairgrounds. Several there have set up camp already. I plan to try to get there at 8am. It's an hour and half drive for me.

I'm going to be riding up Saturday morning with a brother or two and will be there around noon. I'll be sure to come by the booth to check it out. In the evening, we're going to head a bit further west and setup a Sunday ride from Tellico Plains to Asheville the long, windy way before we head back east to Raleigh on Interstate slab. That will be a long day but the first half will be fantastic.

I also got my second Moderna shot yesterday and have my fingers crossed for a light reaction.
