    Hey Brian I was just checking to see what kind of folk I will be meeting.
    Yes camp # and Date. Nothing is Random.
    I don't really know how to wash my bike, I don't pressure wash it.
    Just seems hard to wash. I kinda clean it piece by piece.
    All the pieces are made out different materials and so one brush is too aggressive and so on.
    Never had a bike that was so hard to wash.
    Dirty is one thing but my helmet, gloves and riding gear would have banned me from camp. I HAD to clean them just to have them in the house.

    Brian,

    Just found out that one of the 8' tables I was planning on bringing has been 'requisitioned' by my boss for an open house going on at my office this Friday afternoon. I still do plan on bringing one table up.

    Hope and trust this won't upset your 'perfect' planning ?

    I am sure something can be arranged but I am bringing a coffee maker for those who drink coffee....I will have a fire going in the mornings too for breakfast burritos if you REALLY wanna heat water.

    They look great! We need to cut them up and tape them still right? I'll make sure to throw some scotch tape in the bag...

    Yeah, I was tempted to cut em before hand, but as a full sheet they'll work in a tankbag map pocket, so I didn't.

    Takes 5 minutes. Maybe ten if you talk while you tape.

    I will have to see how things go tomorrow, but, I see now you all are really going riding this weekend. Sounds like fun. I really don't have a solid plan as to when I will get it together. what do you think, an extra pair of underwear, and a pair of fresh sox's.

    Now on a more serious note; If you talk to the locals while your up there, Remember, Respect the Mountain and it's power. Feel the energy. maybe an old tie dye shirt. They are however nice people.

    I love to swim in Lake Siskiyou. So I will also pack me a swim suit.

    Ok, y'all inspired me. I was supposed to ride tonite but am unexpectedly on call, so I grabbed a bucket and the hose and knocked a few of the bigger chunks off.

    Hop-Sing, as long it's not a Speedo...:rofl I plan on swimming too, and probably watching the movie!! All is a go from this end. They felt it necessary to give me a 12 hr. day today but I have been at home prepping food and getting ready for Hondahoser to show up at 930 tomorrow morning. That will give us time to load my bike in his truck and load mine with commodities and stop by to pick up the oysters (the only unknown, being from WA they better be fresh!) and be at the CG by 1130. I know check in isn't until 1 but if the site is empty I feel sure they will let us set up.
    Was smoky as hell in Redding today but that is only 800 ft.......
