Making sure I get a cabin with Wifi cause I was phoneless the entire weekend! Also waking up earlier to enjoy what Helen has to offer, I found myself waking up at 10 everyday LOL
1. Get there earlier. Got to Helen Thursday afternoon and left Monday morning and still wished I had more time up there.
2. Drive the mountain roads more up there, as well as cruise the city more.
3. Visit the goddamn black bears!
4. Take more photos of the town.
5. Meet more peeps to associate faces with names.
All in all, a pretty successful SOWO. Stayed in a cabin which was 2 minutes outside of town (in the Gated Golf Course community right next to the field entrance), went tubing on Saturday and got some free beers , hung out with new and old friends, and all in all had a pretty chill weekend.
If i go next year..
1) stay at the helendorf
2) wake up early and go to the shows....i missed every one
3) not drive down 13.5 hours on 17x10 wheels all around on a 205/45 nankang.
4) not have a blowout going 80mph 40miles away from helen.

tube with a bear or a beer? lol we went tubing each with 2 beers in our pockets, by the time we got 3/4 of the way down the river man, i was in pain. by the time i got out i was ready to die.
i made the mistake of tubing in regular shorts not swim trunks. hahaha
we had a lady from the banks yell at us for having beers on the river -- my bottles were empty and i kept them til we got out. i wasn't about to throw the bottles in the river. i'm not a schmuck. but it was like "lady what do you want me to do at this point? chuck the bottles in the river?"
1. I stayed at the Helendorf...wouldn't change that.
2. I partied hard and had an awesome time with the people i went with...wouldn't change that
3. I drove the **** out of them roads...only thing about that i would change is no speeding tickets
4. Oh! i wont hold up signs at the Helendorf corner and almost get arrested.
yep. i had a pretty succesful first year.
