    Things down here are good but super busy this year. I hope you can make it this year too.

    Tyler, I'll be there by myself this year. I'll bring food for breakfast with me for everyone. I was thinking about coming up after work Thursday night but I'll probably drive up Friday morning.

    I will do the usual hazard tree tour friday with whoever is here Friday afternoon. 33 trees total, some we may need to get creative with. One big dead fir snag on a slight slope, nate, launch it ten feet or futher and win the growlee again! Any climbers coming?

    On second thought: this tree is so dead we may want to just cut and run. There are a bunch of large limbs overhead, less time at that trunk the better. I know you guys make smart and safe decisions. I wanted to add some inappropriate fun to a sketch tree.

    Good call. A line half way up the tree with tension toward fall target and a line at the top in opposite direction and higher tension to find out how fast madhatte can run?

    If all goes as it should, I'll be there before dark on Fryday.
    Planning on camping in the wagon, wouldn't turn down an inside bunk.

    Yessir. Am a bit under the weather now. Hoping to shake it before Friday. If not.....I'll still be there (and sick for the 4th or 5th year in a row)....

    And watch those Solo cups. In the hands of certain Washingtonians (those who's names rhyme with "Gate"), they have an alarming tendancy to spill good brown liquor...

    Is Trevor making it down this year? I hope he is. Renting an RV again? If so, ya think there's room for RandyMac and myself to crash out and snore? If there's only room for one, of course give preference to RM.

    Hope we can see you next year Bob. Next time I head up to visit Randy I'd like to stop by and see you and C if that'd be OK. Will contact you off line...


    If Kevin can get T to come down, we will have a very experienced and enthusiastic climber. Kevin has been known to climb a bit as well...

    I am still rarely receiving notifications of new posts in this thread. Gotta remember to keep a tab open with this thread so I can keep track of it. I was three pages behind just now....

    Your methods... they are unconventional, yet effective.

    ALSO

    anybody wants me to bring something one way or the other has about 24 hours to tell me so, or I don't have time to plan for any detours. Just got my RV sorted today, load offa my mind. It'a a biggun, which may or may not rule. It was the best price I could find.
