Refresh mostly to keep the thread up until somebody notices?

Slight correction. Some camper repairs reset my expected ETA to (most likely) 20 August. (But still +/- a day or so.) Preliminary report indicates some of our regular camp buddies may drag in about 25 August, but they haven't all reported in as yet.

Some may recall that last year the river was about 8 feet above flood stage (26 ft on the gage) and the entire campground was under water a few days before the festival. USGS report is that current river level is at 1.05 ft on the gage, flood stage is 18.0 ft, no recent precipitation worth noting, and all the nearby reservoirs are below 25% of their mean levels; so drowning isn't likely this year - unless it's in one's own sweat.

Local area temps have been high 90s F(97F today, 36 C), and predicted in that range for the next week or so (but we could still have frost before it's all over with a month from now(?)).
