My mother in law just left her place in Atlantic Beach. Probably going to be closing the bridges down there soon.

Just remembered the whole reason Jonesy couldn't join us last weekend was because he and his family were spending this week in their beach house @ Southport Nc down below Wilmington @ the mouth of the Cape Fear River. Guessing he's in the thick of it right now.

Thanks to you all who texted or emailed me feeling the love!!

All is well here...no beach party but mixed up some hurricanes and waiting for it to blow over. A ton of rain and in Southport there are no storm drains so flooding is rampant in all the old town areas. Wind is picking up some but no downed trees yet - dunno what tomorrow will look like!

Chilling out watching Rocky III right now

Return To Portsmouth Island

Rick Newman is rallying the troops to go back to Portsmouth Island the weekend of October 24/25/26.
Yeah it conflicts with Uwharrie, seems like a no brainer to us. Plus the fishing is supposed to be phenomenal in October.

Rest of World Defenders and lowly pre 1991 90's and 110's welcome.

Will plan for the return trip, but need some directions...
It about 2 hrs and 4 lane all the way, just south of Uganda isn't it?

Robert, you should not eat for four days before going down there then drink a lot of high gravity beer the first night. That would be really funny.

Yeah, then watch for the pill-cam exit...

What neighborhood were we in anyway?

Good idea, but then he can ride in your truck. I learned more about Robert on that trail than I cared to know.

Yeah- I mean Needle and I pull up to the ferry dock and Robert has a belgian trippel open. We drank loading the ferry, riding the ferry. In fact I think he had an open bottle the entire weekend except when Nicole got swept "across the inlet to another island by the current as strong as the Kenai River" on Professional Bobby's paddle board. Thank god for lesbian marine biologists in aluminum skiffs to the rescue.
Good times
