    The forecast models have been jumping around some but now are showing a nice spike to around 90+ Thursday-Friday then down to mid-80's Sat-Sunday. I had hoped to be up there today but instead will be rolling out of Windsor tomorrow morning and making stops at FoodMaxx and WallyWorld in Ukiah for Block/Bag Ice and some incidentals.

    Bring plenty of Sunscreen and don't forget your Skeeter Dope, ya FF's.

    Reminder to the folks: Gas at the Soda Creek store is only available for a few hours each afternoon/evening when they power up the generator. I think it starts around 4:00. Maybe Dean or Sharon know the actual hours. My main point is fill up on the way into camp each day, don't expect to fill up in the morning.

    Just a reminder that we will be bringing a Automatic Trap/Clay Pigeon Thrower. If any of you are trucking it up and want to bring your own Shotgun, you're welcome to use our thrower - just bring some clays and your own ammo. I'll have my AR15, semi-auto 12 gauge, a couple of 9mm pistols, and a 22 semi-auto rifle that folks are welcome to try.

    I've been out on the coast messing off. Rode some great mountain bike trails today up near Mendocino. Will be leaving Anchor Bay tomorrow in the AM and heading to Lake Pillsbury. Anyone who might be bringing a mountain bike could you possibly bring some bicycle chain lube?

    Wow, I'd like to know where that trail is.

    I'll bring some chain lube, but sadly won't be there until Friday afternoon as the boss is out of town again for work and I'm Mr Mom... Joy.

    Being this is a MC Rally, I'd bet my missing Kidney that you'll be covered for chain lube :deal
