I have two favors to ask:

When you pick your tent spot, please make sure more tents can fit next to you (ie close to the edge - not in the middle of an empty space).

And, please take it easy on the gravel road up to the camp site / party central - there are 3 little kids on the property.

there are no "sites" during the rendezvous, it's all one big site and almost everything is fair game for camping (with the exception of the "parking meadow" and the rv spaces). We can even camp between the cabins, the playground (if necessary), behind the convention center, in the horseshoe-pit and the small logging road behind the camp showers.

Final test run of my "Big bikes Trail ride" today. I ran the section where I lost my skid plate last week (and oil). Only thing I forgot was that it rained very hard through here last night. Damn was that trail slick!
Should be good for Saturday. We've had a few hard rains lately and the paved roads are thoroughly washed clean of the winter sand and salt. Weather should be excellent! We're going to have a blast!!!!

Funny, just looking at weather. High 50's to high 70's and 30% to 70% chance of rain depending on the web site you look at. Is that big bike trail ride going to be a knobbie thing if it rains?

What site are you looking at? Weather Channel says 10%,10%, 30%, 30%. Haven't seen anything about a 70% chance and the lows were all in the 60's.

We're having a "frost warning" tonight & tomorrow night, but then things will warm up. Ray's Weather says Boone will have a hi 76/ lo 54 on Wednesday and 75/54 on Thursday. Hampton, TN should be a tad bit warmer. Looks perfect to me.

Shelter

Given limited space, does that mean bringing a 10x10 shelter in addition to a tent is a bad idea?

it all depends how you set it up... if you build a fort, a homestead, a moat and walls: yes. if you put it between two tents it's fine.

are you packing it on your bike?

Packing it on the bike yes. Likely JakeMountain and I will be neighbors, thus we can put it between us. I'll need a little distance from him anyway....
