It's raining

It's raining, so we must be at the Georgia Mountain Rally ... and, we are! Fortunately, yesterday was nice in spite of the rainy forecast, and we had a nice ride in the lovely northeast GA mountains. Heavy rain last night, but I have yet to see anyone tilt their tent upwards to drain out the water that leaked in (that happened several years ago up here).

The Bald Mountain Park campground in Hiawassee, GA is now a Good Sams RV park, and when I turned on the laptop and searched for a wireless connection ... there it was. Wi-Fi @ the GA Mtn. Rally!

Turnout is lower than last year, perhaps due to the dreary weather forecast. Haven't seen any of the usual BMWLT GA suspects up here so far. Good chili last night, and "steak as you like it" for this evening.

I have the 1983 R80S up here - it won 2 awards last year (best in class, and people's choice), so don't think I'll enter it in the vintage competition this time - give someone else a chance.

Even in the rain (easy to say as I'm sitting inside our RV), this is a fine rally.
