As you all know we was headed for the can opener, but got turned back by bad weather. We did not make it home either. The road [I-40] from Knoxville to Sevierville was down to one lane each direction. We got off at I-40 exit 407 our exit is 417 then 8 miles to our house. Well we are still sitting at Ripplin Water campground. The road to our house is a steep up hill then a steep down hill with a hair pin turn at the bottom.Everything is snow covered and icy. No sun, no salt and no guts. We hope to get home tomorrow. The weather sure did put the halt to our vacation. Hope to see some of you at Springstream in April.

We are having our own happy hour with strawberry daiquiris. Wish you were here.

I know the weather at Topsail is not ideal, and we are sad that we didn't make it, but it might cheer you up to know that the high Saturday in Indiana will be 18 degrees. To make it worse, it will be about 6 degrees tomorrow night.

So we are getting punished twice. We didn't get to come to the Can Opener Rally that we had looked forward to for months, and it's FREEZING at home.

Another update for those of you who couldn't make it. Yesterday was another fun day. The high temps were a little chilly - low 40s but the sun helped. A group of 26 went to the Red Bar for another excellent dinner and were there long enough to hear the jazz combo start playing. After dinner, many of us gathered in the clubhouse for talk, lies, and dancing, yes, dancing. Pete (Foilwarped) had his karaoke system set up and has an excellent voice. No names on hot dancers since what happens at the CanOpener stays at the CanOpener. Hopefully, more of that this evening. Today's schedule: the ranger breakfast this morning, the tour of trailers this afternoon, and the festivities tonight (happy hour, potluck, raffle, and music). And since Ike T made it in last night, maybe we'll watch him in the first annual Polar Bear Swim this morning. Later,
Russ and Linda

Between subfreezing conditions, Elvis's birthday and a sick MIL could not make the trip. Please forward info on paying for T-shirts. Maybe next year.

Well, here we all are outside the club house after breakfast.

Even the BBQ is angry about the weather.

I think tonight's happy hour will help thaw things out.

How many made it??

How many made it to Topsail?

Someone give us an update on the good times, in spite of the weather. Or..... is this year's Can Opener a bust because of the cold temps?

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures !!!!!

We hope those that were able to make it, are having a great time. Even though it's cold, we wish we were there rather than stuck in Indiana.
