    when we were up there a few weeks back, ALL the campgounds-even the ones far out there had "no fire zone" signs up, except " fish and troy campgrounds" !
    when we tried to get a campfire permit from the ranger station, we found a sign stating that the RS was closed till further notice! we then tried to flag a couple boys driving a ranger pick-up for one, they did not have any in their truck:huh:huh said to get one @ the store????

    in the two days we were there, they drove by but never stopped:huh
    if u are gonna have a fire, there is plenty of wood on the ground to burn:freaky

    you guys have fun:deal

    We were just there on July 13-15th. Fires were allowed on the 13th with a permit. The Rangers came around on Saturday the 14th and posted signs saying no camp fires until further notice. They said anything that leaves ash is not allowed. They alos checked every bike for registration and spark arrestors.

    BTW it was dusty as hell. Pray for rain on this weekend. The trails are all very loose and silty.

    I think I will be in for this. Be great to see some of you again.
    Is it possible to get a shirt in tall sizes? I know probably not, little people get all the cool stuff. I would pay more for one.

    OK, tall sizes are available. However, not in the dark chocolate brown. Tall sizes are available in tan only.

    T-Shirt pre-sale order information is on page 1. Please specify your shirt size and your ADV user name.

    Well gang, I am out. Here's the skinny. I'm in week 3 of 10 of my last course in my degree program - strategic management. Yeah, I am finally going to graduate after 6 looooong F-ING years!!! This last course involves internet and both an individual project and a group project, which has been taking up a lot my personal time and weekends. I need to focus all my time and energy into this last course as it is really kicking my ass.

    Sooo...I am going to hand the torch over to one of you FF's on the IN list. Who's it going to be?
