Son of a gun, I sure would love to attend this. My first out of state trapping venture was in WV as a kid visiting my Uncle. I thought I was big-time catching my first ever Grey Fox and mink there.

They're talking like that danged hurricane Florence may be smacking us next week. If it comes in on us, I'll probably not make it to the convention. This may be the third F to get us. Fran, Floyd and now maybe Florence.

Hopefully it misses you, or calms down before it gets there. I donít have cable so I donít see whatís going on with a lot of that stuff other than what people post on here. I sure am glad we donít have to deal with earthquakes and hurricanes here. Floods are the worst of it, and maybe a tornado every ten years.

I believe the last time you set out for a WV convention the same thing happened. You should plan your hurricanes a little better.
