    AW YEAH

    Trevor and I will also be rolling in sometime Friday, if all goes well. The RV I rented this year is absurdly large, somehow that was the cheapest I could find, so we may have to get creative with parking. As always, we'll make it work.

    I'm not much for asking for help, but things change.
    Simply put, I shouldn't be driving, my mental state has lapses built in, along with some other annoying glitches.
    I would love to attend and need the social contact, but will need to be picked up and dropped off.
    I have gas $ and other things to contribute. I also promise not to kneecap prius owners at gas stops.

    Yeah one way or another we'll make this happen. Of note: the space in this RV is allocated weird so what I'm gonna have to do is pick up a camp cot from wal mart to give a third person a place to sleep. Sadly, that means no fourth. Sorry Aaron! The layout in here is super weird.

    No worries Nate my man. Just take care of my brother Randy. I'll either tent it or sleep at home (depending on the nightly imbibedness level).


    We'll get you back home one way or another bro. I certainly wouldn't be adverse to making another drive north if none of our northern travelers can't take you back on their way home. Pie at the Palm Cafe. :cool:

    Nate, we have cots here, dont buy one. Aaron, we can get creative, maybe a yurt is open or a cabin.

    Kevin says he will pick me up on his way south, that end is covered.

    Heads up y'all: dry windy morning here. So far the red flag warning should be lifted by Friday morning but if it continues through the weekend we probably should not run saws. I know that would be a huge bummer. I hope the humidity rises and winds die down...

    This country needs burned correctly, there is nothing else that will prevent little adventures like the Tubbs or Carr fires, etc....

    Last report has that thing at 17k acres! It's doing a couple thousand an hour. That's really cooking. Won't be shocked if I-5 gets closed due to poor visibility.


    EDIT: can't substantiate that, most sources say 8k acres
