It's time for the third annual mountain wiki weekend, wherein the guys leave the women-folk and girly men behind and retreat to the NC mountains where we hide-away in a beautiful house above the New River, play pool, eat pies (chicken pot, blueberry and quiche variety), monitor the giant wine cellar, laze about and, if weather permits, we hike the frozen Grayson Highlands
where the wild ponies roam. It's called the wiki weekend because we're such geeks that, even without internet connectivity or cell-phone service we actually set up a wireless network and a wiki. You're probably thinking "mountain idiots weekend" at this point but I'll pay you no mind. I'm looking forward to it. Should be a nice break and this year I'm going to meetup with Codehaus Bob
on the way up for lunch in Hickory.
