Still beat staying at home and mowing the grass, I'd bet.
EG: I owe you a few adult beverages left over in my cooler.
So who ended up riding out the weather for the rest of the weekend???
Yeah, me and my buddy departed but with wet sleeping bags, wet tent, leaky waders etc.. and after catching Grizz's fish (ha ha ha ) it was best to cut my losses.....
Cant wait to do this again. Frost bite trip is soon right/??????

JeffG, Owl and everyone;
It was great to meet you guy's finally. I hope we can get together and go fishing again soon. If anyone is interested I'm going to try to make it to the DH on the Amnicolola this Friday.
Hope to see you guy's there.

Great trip. Griz, Adrian and myself stuck it out at the campgrounds. Saturday night was nice. Weather great, a little cool never the less. As always, good food, good friends (some new some old), had a great time.
BTW. The inflatable kayak that I found is made by Northwest River Supplies. Model M1655 sells for $1150. I even had a pump for the thing at home. Pumped it up, washed it off and it now sits in the garage ready to go.
What a trip. Owl how is your jacket doing, hope mom did not get mad. BeeDub, you should of seen Owl on fire. You would of been proud!
Well time to dry out and resupply the camp box. Thanks again guys enjoyed as always.
Maybe we should have a class on wet camping for some of you.
Almost forgot, even caught fish.

I should have followed Flyrod...
Jacket is fine. Leaving, though, I snapped the tip off my almost brand new St. Croix. I was depressed all the way home and only snapped(pardon the pun) out of it by watching my Jackets kick the puppies butts. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif
The next rainy camping trip I ever go on will be in an SUV. No more rainy camping for me.....I hated it.

THE FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING............and I wish I could have stayed for the second gormet meal on Sat. night. Hope you guys had fun.........anyone catch any good ones Sat or Sun?
I hate to ask this. But after I left about 10:30AM on Saturday it cleared up and was beautiful the rest of the weekend, wasn't it?
Anyway. While I was there, great food by Hoochrat again. Good conversation even though it was in a dizzling rain.
What a great trip! I hear Owl feathers are not water proof or fire retardant!!! Enjoyed hanging with Hooch, Adrian, Flyrod, Grizz and ole Slickfoot. The food as usual was awsome! Thx again guys!
Oh yeah, I did manage to catch a few Sunday morn. before heading home. Beautiful water!

Hey Greg. Sorry I missed you. I went home and watched Tech beat the stew...oh anyway... http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif
"what's that smeeeell? ... IS that meeeeee??? "
Should have the picture of THE FISH, developed soon so I can post it up here.
Owl..have you developed the pic of the brookie we caught up there??
Once again I want to thank everyone who showed up for making a great 2nd annual trip. Just because of a little rain the trip was not dampened. I had a great time, except when Jeffg caught my fish. Not really sure that I want to see that picture. I only spent over an hour trying to catch it. Hooch, once again I bow to your greatness. Absolutely the best Jambalaya that I have ever had.
To all those that did not make it, you really missed a good time. If you really want to see what a good trip is all about, I challange all of you to make the 2nd Annual Frostbite Excursion in Febuary. More to come on it later.
Think snow!!! Yeah!!! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Looks like we should have the Frostbite Excursion this weekend.

Jeffg, you mean the brookie YOU caught, right ? http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Haven't had it developed yet.....next time I take pics of fishing, you'll get to see them right away....got a middle of the road digital camera yesterday...will have pics of animals at the Birmingham Zoo up tonight, I hope. Tomorrow at latest.....camera has high resolutions setting and 3 choices of resolution. Wanted the Sony, but didn't need to spend $400 on it. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif
