    I still have the balloon kit from my event. I will bring it and the camcorder. I want to put together a good video this time. I have been working on my editing techniques.

    If I promise to bring home-brew to the camping portion of the event can I attend even though I drive a Mercury AND use a Magellan?
    We'd love to have you come out . . . and in answer to your question it would be Selection A on the Happy Meal Menu . . . a 4WD vehicle should be more than adequate . . . assuming we did the same type of stuff we did last year in terms of terrain . . . no snorkels, Detroit lockers, 33 inch tires, etc. should be needed . . . but if anyone shows up with something like this we would all be suitably impressed.

    Oh yeah, I should add that I too am a Magellan user . . . I just have to get my digs in before anyone else can . . . not that it stops anyone else though.

Map & Compass would be good for the magellan users (but they would have to come with very detailed instructions...)
    Do you suppose they would miss the stuff . . . I mean it's not like we need the cold weather suit in the summer, right?

    OK, those are some good ideas . . . in the next couple of weeks I'll take spin out to VIP or some other suitable place and see what I can pick up for some give-aways.

    Just to echo this here . . . I should have space for 1-3 other people if anyone would like to come, but doesn't want to drive or doesn't have a suitable vehicle for off-road.

    Also, Hiram . . . just to be clear . . . you did say there were ATV trails near or running past the campground???

    Just make sure there's plenty of space in the back . . . we'll be going behind Hiram's Jeep and picking up the parts so he can reassemble the Jeep at a later date.

    Isn't that what you said last week when you were trying to cajole me into blowing off my friend's wedding in the County to go camping/caching with you and Misawalala?

    And I'll bring my . . . I mean a borrowed high-winder digital camera to take some pics of the event to make a slideshow . . . maybe I can get the pics to Rick afterwards and in his spare time he can add music to it.
