I'm camping in the Maniac section. I will be packing up a "nursing station" just in case anyone runs into any problems.

Also camping. I'll be the girl hanging out at the fire with a snuggie and a beer after I finish my 50 miler :D

As an aside, driving to and from Owen Sound on the weekend, every time I read a sign for West Grey, I thought of your name West Grey Runner. :lol:

I'm going all out this year: I'm staying in one of the cabins. Apparently, we have our own shower!

For those of you camping, don't forget to bring loonies for your post-race shower! You don't want to have to walk ALL the way to the restaurant to get change :shock:

Well I guess I am doing the 25k- wish I was in better shape to do the 50k

Will be sleeping in my car the night before, will get up to cheer on the longer runners then have a leisurely breakfast.

I am going to try to borrow some cook equipment. Haven't had a chance to get my own over the past month or so, and was planning to accumulate my new cooking gear over the winter. I'll let you know if I'm "NOT" bringing any cook gear.

I'll be doing pretty much the same thing, run/hike/crawl the 26 then hang out cheering, crewing and late night walking/pacing if required.

See ya there! Just look for the yellow MINI Coop. ;)

BJH you are so ready to rock this.

Wait did you say 7 days :?: (oh no)

AE you could do 50, you seemed very strong at Creemore.

I'll be in the back of my car, somebody knock if I'm not up by 5.

My ankle hurts. I drank too much on Wednesday. I ate junk food yesterday. I'm going to hell.

Edit: why is that word allowed?

What a coincidence, I also drank too much on Wednesday.

So are cuss words edited automatically or do the mods do it? If it is does manually, could I volunteer for the job?

I have a couple of stoves which I'll bring so anyone can borrow it if needed. If anyone needs any other camping gear, let me know, I have a ****.

looks like it is done automatically. How about: I have a "shootload" of camping gear.
