Great, then just in that general area. If you see a good spot grab it. We like shade. We'll get here sometime early afternoon too. If you are not sure, just hang out and we can pick a spot together. If you get there first, do 'park' yourself at an eligible location. It seems to be getting popular to be out there this weekend. :)

I'll have my Red FSJ so I will be easy to spot.

Tomorrow we may face destiny, we may fight and die and fall to the fires of perdition, but tonight is ours, and we drink and make merry.

Yes. Yes.

Rain is supposed to stop Friday early evening and expected rain to then is much less than what we've had. It will get a bit chilly, mid to upper 40's so dress warm!

My buddy's daughter is sick so he's out. He was going to make the Turkey. I am going to pick the stuff up from him and try to make it.

We could probably use some TABLES. I think I can borrow one.

Looks like a smaller group this year, about 18 or so.

We are at the last turn off in the main wash. Just past the 'curves next 6 miles' sign. And the tire in the road. A yellow cat little box bucket is in the main road where the turn is. We can be seen from the main road.

Thanks to everyone who showed up! What a great assortment of food. Debbie gets the gold star for her multi act dutch oven cooking fest! As always the folks pitched in and the variety of food was awesome. I even managed to sneak in a few cheese crisps on Sunday before we all left.

And the weather was perfect! I wished we had not missed out on Thursday but, goodness, the temps were perfect Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So pleasant.

I really enjoyed spending time with all of you folks again. Thanks for putting up with and taking care of me. See you next year (and hopefully sooner)!

The foods were incredible. The people were pretty good too! It was great to see everyone. Krista, Newt and I are back in the great white north wondering whatever happened to the Tshirt weather. We saw snow tonnage on the way home but the roads were clear. Happy Turkey!
