Let me sit on it for a little bit. If I don't would you please pick up a water bottle for me. (from Spotts). I am pretty sure Mike is a "no go" or he would be posting up. He was camping out tonight though. So maybe he is there freezing his butt off. Smile

Yeah but I've been trying to poop for hours.

I will be there at 9:30. Will someone who is going PM me their cell number so I can contact someone from the group when I get there?

I may not be able to leave the county tomorrow. Depending how icy the highway is through Balsam Mountain is I might not be able to leave.

I'm eating then leaving. Also no snow stuck in Clemson and what did fall wasn't enough to make the ground wet. The storm was moving southeast and gulches is SE of me. I hope its dry.

Hey, if you guys have internet check this. It was just posted a few minutes ago!


Skip posted:

We barely survived the day yesterday but I think most had fun in the horrible slop. We will open today Sunday at normal times with some rule changes. Once you are in the park you will have to stay until 5:30pm. No one will be allowed to leave early. If you cannot adhere to that please pick another time to come. No stock vehicles large trucks street tires or all terrains will be allowed in. The park is an absolute mess. There are basically no easy trails. For more info please call 864 449 5698.

WE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY THE 18TH. We will try to open next weekend if we can fix up the trails.

What is this all about...I dont get that at all. I would figure once he got their $, the less they rode on the trails the less damage?

It is either to make sure everyone is out (30 entered, 30 left) kind of thing, or there will be so much mud on the streets they will have to shovel it off. Only want to do it once.

I called Casey, and Derek is going to get a hold of 2wd and Spotts. If anyone has the others number give them a call.

I like skip, but this is the kind of decision that should have been made Saturday night!

Gulches is a NO go, bailing out. Three of us are heading to Hurricane Creek.

Just got back down to Columbia. Bummer on Gulches but least we gave it a go!

From what little we saw it was pretty destroyed. Even the main access trail as it starts going down the hill was all rutted out. We'd almost/would be dragging the rear axle on them...

The issue with not letting people out till 5:30 was the city or county got pissed at him yesterday for the crazy amount of mud on the road. They had to have the fire department come and hose it all down. That is also why Skip wasnt very good at keeping the info updated for us since he was dealing with that mess. I guess they said if it happened again they could shut him down... and it had already cost him a few hundred as it was to have the road cleaned off.

I am really disappointed that Skip couldn't make this decision earlier. I only wasted 30 minutes of driving, but others were much worse off. But Skip was busy with the huge mess outside of the park.
