They are holding a couple of informal runs and at least one BBQ to use up all the food. On Sunday, they need volunteers to remove dozens of kms of course markings and hidden water containers. So we still could have gone and enjoyed the (smoky) mountains but this ended up being my Mom’s moving week after an unexpectedly short house closing and now I can go help her.
I’m sure your mom will appreciate the help.
And not worrying about you get gobbled by a fire.
She really needs the help. She had been a bit worried about fires, bears, steep mountains, the travel - pretty much all of it. :)
What a nice daughter/sister:)
Come in September for the Golden Ultra! :)
(sucks about Fat Dog though)
Sorry, I missed your suggestion. Golden Ultra looks great but this year I'm helping to organize a reunion dinner for my engineering class that weekend. That will be fun but I need a mountain fix!
