    I've been working on "Not Crashing"------but the results have been pretty poor---better keep the chopper on stand-by. This gettin' old and crashing is not what it's cracked up to be.

    Last years bumbed up my foot and leg crash-------I stuck my foot in the front tire trying to do a stoppy.

    I hear that there will be a pioneer campout group (can not remember the proper term for this) out there at the campground this same weekend. So that will ad some interesting things to see. I am looking at my menu for Grass Roots open house and figuring a way to snale out to camp and still pull off a good meal both days. Put me down for a sincere effort to be there.

    I'm going to try and make it a 3 to 5 day weekend. But will post final plans closer to the event. I do want to be camping there Friday night if not sooner.

    In fact------about the first of June I'm planning on at least a 5 week--weekend:rilla

    Maybe someday I can be like Pilot !!!!!

    I am working way up North right now at a Nuclear Power House----word is we'll be laid off in 2 or 3 weeks----but you never know about these kind of jobs. I've gotten contaminated with so many millerem of radioactive particles this year--I won't need a tent light.

    is not far from there.
    Topozone map and it does show up as a POI in Garmin software that supports POI's. A couple years ago it was about a mile hike but last time I was there they had the road open farther in and it was maybe a 5 minute walk.

    Kevin,
    I plan to make it down on Friday evening and may stay till Monday morning.
    If I can get away from work I'll head down Thursday night, but Friday is more likely. Is anyone else interested in staying Sunday night and doing some riding on Monday? What do you think - Mark?

    Runner - Yes I am still running the F650, just can't seem to turn loose of it.
