I got raingear and a tarp already loaded... I've been "exposed" to similar storms while camping in Dayton Nv... worst case scenario I sleep in the cab of my truck.
Thanks for the heads up!
As i said before ill cover a diner and maybe a breakfast. Well I picked up some stuff to do spaghetti / garlic bread one night, and bacon /egg /beagle sandwiches one morning. Im shooting to get up there Friday night... but cant say yet for sure. Ill be there tell Monday though.
No idea on how many are coming but i can handle any size for diner but breakfast i only have enough stuff for about 12-13 people.
My two favorites from Inigo:
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
"He's right on top of us. I wonder if he is using the same wind we are using."
We are at a camp next to our regular spot. Closer to lake. The camp host used to stay there.
Were you there?
Thanks to Ken for organizing the ride, it was a lot of fun and I'm glad I could hang out for awhile. Next year - camping or else.

With all the rumored goings on, I can neither confirm nor deny that I was actually there. ;-)
You camping? Will you also be bringing the flying pigs??
Yeah Ken, you and Lori did good and it was a blast! Er... so I hear.
