I made a quick trip to Pumpkin Holler today. I took 80 letters to residents around the course reminding them that there will be crazy runners running around for a couple of days, asking them to pin up the mean dogs, and keep a close eye on the friendly ones. Last year, a basset hound followed runners halfway around the big loop, and never came home.
Lots of prep work is yet to be done. Tomorrow is shopping day when we buy a couple thousand dollars worth of food stuff, and then load a couple tons of aid station supplies and other stuff in a big truck and leave for Eagle Bluff, which will be out home for a few days. Can't wait!!
