It will be the First time Amanda and I will be tenting it, in a very long time, so it definately will have to rain. I hate the rain  >:( but the temperature is no big deal (light coat) as far as cold goes but I will have to pack shorts for the 73 degees.  ;D

Wheres Natural Bridge station?

A little bit south and west of Oak Ridge.  My sone and I are camping in that area on tuesday and wednesday.  There are caverns, the natural bridge.  Weather permitting we are going to paddle some on the James River and do some hiking.  Here is the link.

Should be an interesting side trip.

Pray for dust so you can cover at least a couple miles of trail.  :o

Local weather, Tuesday,  mist in the morning but clearing?  It has been misting or raining for the past seven days.  The weather calls for warmer temps until Friday night when the front is predicted to bring us rain, 50%.  Lets hope that the front stalls..... ???

On the eve of the start of the UFWDA Wheel-in, I hope you all have good weather, and a fantastic time.

Sorry that I can not be there, as prior commitments to CAL4Wheel keep me out here on the west coast.

Enjoy

Todd

With the start of the Wheel In, I'm hoping your weather is good. Maybe not too much dust but not too much rain either. Every one have a great time can't wait to see some pictures of the event.

Would love to be there.

The weather is beautiful this morning.
It may dry things out a little for tomorrow.
Looks like Sat. will be wet.

I'll try to take some pics.
Can't wait for work to end today.

Looks like the storm is going to break up over the mountains and spare us the deluge they were predicting earlier in the week.  Today, Saturday, looks to be partly cloudy with the high in the 70's.  We may get an occasional t-storm but not providing much rain.  As the front approaches tonight they are expecting it to loose much of it's moisture in the mountains before it gets to us.  We may have a scattered t-storm tomorrow, Saturday. 

Bottom line is the weather is going to be great!
