Extremely well planned out Lee - all your coordinating & the organization of activities has really fostered a festive climate...THANKS again!
Since Kat will not be joining Sunday mornings Caving activity, I'll leave the Van at NRocks - So I'll opt for the shuttle To & From Caving Sunday.

**Edit: really cool to see so many attending!

Lee, hope this is not a big deal but I'll probably skip the caving on Sunday. I'm just in for the Via on Saturday. Otherwise I'll tend the fire. I need a restful getaway.

Thanks

For those not planning to participate in any of the activities on Sat - we've been offered the opportunity to head over to Swilled Dog Hard Cider for a VIP tasting and tour. If anyone is interested please let me know and would be happy to coordinate further. Just over 30 mins from NRocks.

Sounds pretty great. Never done a cider tour before. If enough people express interest in this we would be down. We will probably be checking out the trout fest as well either before or after. Thanks for all the coordinating.

Camping Update:
Unfortunately, heavy rain washed out access to the upper pasture at NRocks (see below). Its simply not safe for heavy vehicles (off camber with a steep drop into the creek).


Upper Pasture:


Washed Out Section (much steeper than appears/not possible to cut passenger right):



We're going to make use of the same camping area we used last year. We have the area totally reserved. I've thrown together a concept photo so that everyone can see what it will look like. Just a reminder that there are no hookups (water/toilets and free wifi available at the welcome center).


If folks want a little more space there are several alternatives on the property (including setting up in close proximity to the NRocks Welcome Center (which is where DM and I will be)).

Concept:


Welcome Center Option (space in front of the green roofed building):
