    The deadline for early registration has passed, but you can still show up at the event and have a great time...
    Just stop by the HQ/Registration tent upon arrival and Bman will take care of you...

    Just a pair of reminders for those of you who are headed to the event this week:

    We still do not have cell phone coverage. We do have wifi at the Lodge...
    If someone needs to contact you, they can call the Lodge and they will relay the message down to us in the camping field and/or let you know at the next meal (if you are eating at the Lodge...).
    The nearest gas station is in the town of Madison. Make sure that you top off your tanks and fill up your jerry cans on you way to the event...

    Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you in a few days.

    Cabell, when can you post the VHF/CB Freq's and call signs for the rally? We're KJ4SET, capable range 30-79.9MHz Limited to 4W (until I get a vehicle mounted antenna, then 20W!).

    Can't pull off the trip this year, but sure would like to make the trip next year (God willing and all).

    Only because the road is twisty and narrow, and goes through two towns and a left turn off the 'main' road before you get to Syria, where the action is. It's actually only about 9-10 miles, but you lose cell phone signal around Aynor (key "Deliverance" theme for those who want to stay connected all the time).

    I just wanted to thank everyone that made it to the rally.
    I'd also like to thank those who's efforts made it a great weekend, especially:
    Steve, Laura, and the gang from Rockridge Offroad
    "Al Harvey" and Mike "SCSG-G4"
    Chuck "BMan" and Sonny
    Rad and Euan
    The Graves family and the staff at Graves Mountain Lodge

    We'll do it again next year, with just a few tweaks to enhance the experience for everyone.

    Meanwhile, I have uploaded my photos and those from a few other folks to my flickr account at:

    Thanks for all the the pics, that's a treat.

    The chow-call looks like it was popular, that line snaked all over the pavilion!

    The main dish is Eastern NC BBQ Pork, and it goes quickly! While not pictured, there was less than three cups left (one of each flavor) of the Apple, Blueberry and Cherry cobblers. About two cups worth of the Peach cobbler, so I may skip it next year and go with half-pans of the Blueberry and Cherry.
