lunch time we will be seating on the ledge of grand canyon enjoying the view, pack your own. though, we can eat real food at bar10 for $26 per person...

i'm bringing sliced bread, bagel, dried meat like salami, beef jerky, and power bars.

in the evening, we will have bar-b-q. i will take care of the firewood and charcoal.

Duy,

I can drop off a gas can for you at Joel's place. Just let me know...Wish I could make it, but I've been a slacker lately. It will be a maintenance weekend for me.

But that $26 included showers and all ranch amenities except for a bed to stay overnight... Sack lunch too.

$8 a gallon gas is not bad for the convenience. That is for 89 octane too. If you need 91, carry some octane booster.




It sounds like this plan is commin' together!

If you could, that will be terrific. It'll save me a long haul to Burbank!

Joel - I'll box the KLR up and haul my camping gear/food.

Nope she found a deal and never looked back - once she wears that one out I may still have mine - I figure it won't be long with the miles and adventures she's having versus my laziness in offloadong mine I might be able to make her a deal

looking forward to getting back out with the LA rider maybe the ANF will be open back up by then
