Well, I detailed my route and posted it... and it vanished while posting, no error message, screen refreshed and my post just wasn't there.

So here's the short version.
We're leaving early in the morning and taking our time and avoiding interstates all the way so James will probably beat us there by several hours.

Route is 361 miles
hwy 16 to Eatonton then 44 to 378 and through Lincolnton, GA
Stay on 378 through Saluda, SC and up to pick up 213 going to Winnsboro.
Then to 200 up to 9 then to 109 up to Wadesboro NC
109 to 73 to 501 up then turn right on 42 and to the park.

When we leave Sunday we'll be headed to Wilkesboro, NC to visit my Mother for Mother's Day. 138 miles.
Monday morning we'll leave there to head home, 299 miles
So the trip back will be 76 miles longer overall and we should get back well before evening.
Depending on our times we may stop in Greenville and visit family, don't know yet, don't know what we'll feel like or if anyone will be home.

There will be three of us (2 Urals and 1 BMW R75) Anyone is welcome to join us, PM me and I'll send you my phone number so you can call/text if you're along the route somewhere. We will probably stop fairly often especially if we see something interesting like a museum, antique shop, yard sale or a purple cow. So if you're a road warrior, you probably wouldn't like riding with us. If you like to stop and see things and have a cup of coffee every now and again, you'll fit right in.

Packed up and towing my homebuilt trailer, fingers crossed.
It's made from Dnepr, CJ and miscellaneous tubing from hardware stores .
I mean, what could go wrong it's only 148.6 miles?

I'm drinking back from Louisiana to NC now, will be down tomorrow. Let me know of any last minute Costco needs.

Burial told me Qball is not coming this year (this morning). Let us know how the "drinking back from Louisiana" goes!

Harryball, don't bet on me beating you there, on Myrtle not the Retro! No telling what fun may pop up! See you all Friday!

Another example of why you shouldn't drink and drive- or text or use damn auto-correct. Although any one who's spent any time in Louisiana knows that "drinking (your way) back from Louisiana" is a perfectly appropriate thing to do.

Jealous I can't make this though I've been following this thread for months. With a 16 hour day at work today and Sunday being Mother's Day just wasn't going to happen. Oh well, Jersey Devil Hunt is in 2 weeks.

For ya'll traveling anywhere north or mid east be careful. Looks like you are going to hit a wicked swath of weather getting there.

Best CRAP I ever had. Qball, you were missed brother. Great job again all involved. John, Robbie, Bill, Mr and Mrs Troll, the cooks and helpers did a fantastic job. Wonderful time. Sad it went by so quickly. Nice to see the old faces and meeting new ones. Overall excellent.

AWESOMENESS ! This best describes 2016 CRAP Rally hosted by none other than the generous, SUPER hard working ( to make everyone happy ) "john".

Saturday's food was delicious, games very interesting thanks to the last minute fill-in help of Bill ( the lone gunner ), and thankfully no ricocheted
BB's into the onlooking crowd. Next year, maybe paintball guns ???? Hmmmmm !!

Might I ask a big favor from anyone that took pics. If there were any pictures taken of our new pup "MayKay" playing with the kids and everyone else we
would certainly appreciate sending some our way. We, oops, I meant "I" forgot our camera. You can PM me if you like or post it here.
Thanks !
Already looking forward to next year. JOHN, please try to relax this week and take it easy, you deserve it.

My wife, my dog, and I just wanted to say thank you to all the really kind, generous, and helpful folks we met Saturday. We didn’t know what exactly to expect and were lucky enough to meet a group of the best folks I have run across in a very long time. Every single person we talked to made us feel welcome and was very kind to us. It has been a long time since we have had such a great experience with so many people.

I was pretty excited about getting my own rig (my Gear Up due on May 20th) but now that excitement has gone up exponentially after Saturday especially since I Lokiboy (please forgive if incorrect) had my dog and I on his rig almost immediately and I could see that my dog liked being a monkey. I was worried about that since he is the primary reason for getting one. Anyway, thank you all very much and we are really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible again in the near future.
