Thanks for the Tri-tip offer, we'll probably roast one as well. I checked out the clubhouse today, the AC is a bit noisy but works, it'll be nice and cool if it gets hot outside. The patio has a great breeze and lots of shade.

There is a dish washer so we'll load it up after dinner and let it do the work for us. There is a range and microwave and normal refrigerator. The fire place is very large for the pyros amonst us.

If you have a favorite game or book, bring it along.

If you really need electric hookups for medical equipment or whatever, I may be able to get you a spot in a nearby campground, it has little shade so you'll need AC if you plan on sitting inside the trailer. The other campground is about 100 yards away by trail.

Nights are nice and cool with lw humidity, in the 60s and 30% or so, and the campground is quiet so AC at night is not necessary.

See you all soon.

At this point, it is Lori, Chris, and Pricilla (and hopefully, Lora and Lizbeth) dutch oven cooking Saturday afternoon. We can start about 3:30 for dinner at 6:00. If you want dinner earlier, we can start earlier. We'll bring our fixin's to the potluck.

Our menu will include at least Lasagna, Chicken Cordon Blu, Bread Pudding, Sourdough Bread.

Anyone else want to join us?

Lori

Oops, I reported the temps wrong.

We leave the windows open at night and the house gets to the low 60s, outside air temperatures get down to the high 40s, low 50s. At 6:45 this morning the outside air temperature was about 50. The winds are calm so it isn't cold for us though you should bring a light jacket.

We have to cancel coming. The class that Eric is signed up for is not available any other time. It's just too far of a drive for him to do on Sat to make his class. I am really disappointed.

Lori I'm sorry about not being able to make your class, I was really looking forward to it.

Everyone take lots of pictures!

Hey Lori, I have been slow in reading the updates for the trip. Count on me for the Dutch Oven Doo! That is if we have the ovens here and not at the desert house. I will have to let you know tomorrow. (Wes just said he thinks they are in the desert) That is the problem with having two houses!

We won't be able to leave Sonora until about 4pm. A doctors appt has messed up our early leaving. That will put us in about 10PM. I hope we can still get in the gate that late, can we Thane?

Looking forward to the trip. We haven't been out in our Casita for a trip since Cambria.

See you soon!

Lizbeth - I'm sorry you and Eric aren't going to make it, and certainly understand. Work has often fouled up trips for us . I'm available to do DO classes or coaching at future rallys.
We'll meet up again soon.

Maggi - Glad to have you join the fun. Let me know if I need to bring you a DO to borrow. Do you want a recipe?

Lori

The gate is open 24 hours so a late arrival is OK.

Here is a little information for you.

Potable water is available at the campground. You can fill your water tank from one of the water spigots before parking your trailer.

I will be arriving after work on Thursday, around 6:30 PM. If you have problems or questions call me at my office 661-275-9511. After 5:00 PM you can call me on my cell phone 661-433-9842.

I will leave an information packet on the gazebo counter, there will be maps and some information about the area.

If you don't want to cook, the Mulligan Room at the golf course serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The information packet will have a map showing the location.

I'll provide the campground paperwork, just pick out a spot and have fun. Please save campsite 5 for Chuck H.

There will probably be a team roping group at the equestrian center, feel free to go over and root for either the humans or the cows as you see fit.

Oh heck, I forgot the bad news. Since we didn't fill up the campground, I am going to hit you all up for $5 per site to cover the total expenses, that'll pretty much let me break even. Sorry about that.

I just got home. Waited to drive across the desert until it got a bit cooler.

Stayed for the cow dancing contest (Really! There were people on horses making cows do a shuffle) The cows were all dressed up in thier party best blue.

I actually forgot what the competition was called. You had teams of two horsey folks herding #ed cows in numerical order from one corral to another. It looked a bit like playing pool with cows.

Got to meet a new member, Chuck H and wife.. and cute little dogs.

A good time was had by all.. except for maybe the cows.

Thanks Thane!

Thank You, Thane, for all your effort in making this a great weekend. I am so glad we went and got to see Tahachapi and Bear Valley.

Mike & Gina, thanks for showing me all your lighting mods. They are definately a good thing.

This morning I said to “Buddy”, “Where’s Gina?” and he ran all over the house and came back all excited and perplexed. (I’m bad )

Boy it was fun seeing everyone again. Lou you are doing so well, good for you.
