showers

Don't forget that the showers at the campground are coin-op. 6 bits will get you a decent shower. Bring quarters.

Hell...I may even shower this weekend! Never done that at an ADV event before

Anyways, so I will be trucking the DR up Friday mid-day. I'll be bringing some wood, a medium cooler, ice, BBQ and a lantern or two. If it looks like we may get rain, I may see if I can steal a few tarps to bring up as well.

Probably going to need those tarps for shade! Temps are supposed to be in the 80's.

Nah, plenty of shade up there. I will do a once around the park, but unless something peaks my interest I'll set up in one of the sites we were in last year (40 something apparently), furthest away people yet with good views and allow for Sally to set up his rig.

The wife and I went to Big Trees last weekend, and the temps were in the mid-70's. I asked a ranger about evening temps, and they've been in the low-mid-40's. Things look great for you guys.

The colors are not yet in full swing unless you go above 6,000 feet, then the aspens are stunning. The colors on the other side of Hwy. 4 are a bit better, with the aspens dominating.

Youz guys have fun!!

I'm out....

I've got tweaker issues at my place up in Oregon...FUCK!!!

Gotta hook up with the sheriff on Friday to go do a check/start the eviction process.

Fortunately, I can't get them out right away so it lets them have plenty of time to trash the place.

Great fuckin' law, that one....

If anyone is looking for or knows anyone looking for a FREE place to stay/live in SW rural Oregon, let me know.

Just keep the place up.

BIG shop, restored 100yo farmhouse, great local riding, fishing, hunting....

I'm leaving at 8:00 Thursday morning with buddy Tommy (rides a goldwing). Heading up 101 to King City, then up 25 through Hollister and over toward 'Banos. Then a weird route across the valley to miss Turlock and Oakdale.. then up to Columbia and Parrot's Ferry.

See youz guys in camp. I'll see to it that there's at least one cold beer each " for effect" , ready for the Friday arrivers

and..yeah, 'Punky.. I know you don't drink beer. I'll try to compensate.
