That guy nearly killed himself last year when he ramped off the 10' snow bank. Was cool to watch, though. I've got two noobs, and will give Bendejo a call right now. No wife this year, so I'll be camping with the REAL men.

Hopefully I'll have a number of noobs along with me too.

The Ural guys should be up there Sunday morning to muck things up again this year.

Was a little dicey when he fell through the ice into the river the night before, too.

Tentatively in. Depending on how much school work I get done during the week I might have to spend the weekend studying.

It's the falling off part that they're worried about, something about a fractured pelvis and a lacerated spleen...
,,,along with the not quite healed gash in my right butt cheek...

We don't need to hear about your butt cheeks. However, speaking of butt cheeks, how many people are sleeping in tents Saturday night? I wussed out last year and rented a room in the motel, but this year I'm back in the tent (luckily I found my sleeping pad this time). Let the food, beer, stories and sword begin... I'll be there for dinner tomorrow night.

Do we have word on a grill?

I have a small portable grill that I will bring. It's one of those camping style ones, so not big, but it works.
