:rofl: ....Good luck on the "sweet talk"....I really want to do that Flowerpot trip. Of course there will be the obligitory double thru trip of Stillhouse and Sinks of Gandy. We may do a Sharp's trip. I'm thinkin on a trip to Harman Waterfall cave too. I also have a dig in Pendleton County blowin mucho air! The geology of that area dictates a rather large cave is waitin to be de-virginized! :kewl: Ya know anyone thats good at reamin a virgin hole?

Looks like they are calling for a 30% chance of precip every day of the event. The temperatures are supposed to hover around 80 degrees.

It's OTR, it will rain some. It almost always does...
At least it will be warm.
A couple of years ago, it rained all day everyday with temps in the lower 60's.

I'm glad I wasn't at that one Scott, I don't think my little "silver cavin' bullet" would have made it out. :big grin: Looks like I'll be gettin' there sometime Friday evening Mud. We are working on a big job at work and I can't get off Friday( although I may slip off a little early).

OTR is no more decadent than any other cavin event. :laughing: Well, mebbe a little. I don't think there's a need to ban cameras or video. We all know what we're gettin into when we go there right? :kewl:

I'll have my camera handy as usual! :waving:
