Hey Gang!!!!

It has been a long time, way to long but just wanted to say I will miss everyone this weekend since I will not be able to attend. I hope to recieve many drunk phone calls from the parking lot.

Alpine is usually my favorite weekend of the year. Normally I am playing golf this day, drinking all night just to wake up with a massive hangover to start the festivities and be in the lot by 12.
Get Up, Stand Up!

anyone watching the weather? it looks pretty nasty.
Rain, thunderstorms with more rain, more rain, and then rain. With some thunderstorms.

*sigh* I can handle hot, overcast and humid.

As long as it's a warm rain, I don't care. I plan on winning the Captain Morgan pose off competition tomorrow. Look for me and my "little" bottle of Captain. See you there!

Loving this surprise forecast. We are all loaded up for rain and now maybe sunscreen should be added to the list.

Hope it stays away. The moon last year was full and it was an awesome night. We will be on the road in 12 hours!!!! :D

Are you kidding me!? Nobody's up yet?

It's 6AM! Should I go pull the firearm and wake up the troops?

By the way, the forecast looks awesome. We have a great day Alpiners. Temps could reach 85 and there is only a 2 hour window with 30 percent chance of rain. Other than, PARTLY CLOUDY! JB took the weather with him again!
