Thanks Gina....

Since I don't have an oven - replacing a double oven with a single oven - they are still in boxes... I might be bringing bakery cupcakes.

Thanks for the campground info.

Well, one roadblock is out of the way; the turn signals work!

Things are looking probably for next weekend. (I'd still like to have some kind of permit in hand, though without non-working lights I'm less worried about being pulled over.)

So far no forest fires in the area? Getting away from the smoke up here would be a plus.

Linda, what are your travel plans? If I do go I'd be leaving Friday morning from Fresno, probably 9-ish, travelling down 99 to Bakersfield.

Glad it is looking like you'll be able to come Bobbie!

For those as thin skinned and whimpy as me, it IS actually starting to be fall up here. The days are still hot, tho getting down to the more comfortable range of high 80s during the day, but.. dispite the mountain look, it's High Desert , so the nites are becoming a tad chilly. It was 41 last nite.

I can't say the the state of forest fires...it's high fire season, they can happen at any time. But the same can be said about earthquakes, hurricanes and locus invasions..

If the potluck isn't until [b]Saturday, we could bake the cupcakes in the Fiber Stream's oven. It might take a while since it would only bake 6 at a time... but it would keep the trailer warm all night Friday.

I don't have a clue what I can bring if I come- have to dig something up for the corgi picnic, too. It can't require heating, has to be prepared two days early, and has to travel well. I'll probably bring cookies or something along that order.

If you dont' have propane or electric in the trailer... don't forget a crockpot and extension cord work pretty dang well! Of course that means an electric site has to be available for you to plug in.

We have finally slowed down enough to know what our travel plans might be. Our plans at this time, are that we leave Albany Oregon, Wednesday morning. We might be visiting friends in Kingman Thursday night and be able to meet up with you Friday morning. How long is it from Fresno?

Don't worry about cooking for everyone, I am sure there will be more than enought to go around. There always is.

Sorry, no electric available!

Gina thinks about six hours. But she said 3 1/2 to Bakersfield so that would make it 5 1/2. But isn't Kingman in Arizona? You'd already be way past Fresno at that point.

I was thinking maybe you meant King City...

Kingsburg is just south of Fresno. I have to stop off in Visalia and will be leaving there about 9:45 AM- its about 25 minutes south of Kingsburg. If that works out for you and if I am for sure going, I can figure out a place we could meet. (Visalia is 10 minutes east of 99.)

There is a rest area just south of Visalia, 15 miles or so? It's actually on the south side of Tulare.

My dogs use it often

Hi Linda,

DOs won't work, (I don't think...) unless you set them on top of a grill. Nothing can be on the ground for fire OR charcoal. And we can't even have anything resembling a fire pit or free standing fire etc.

A regular BBQ is OK, as long as it's used like you would normally use one. (I am not a DO person, so.. I am a bit clueless accept for what little I have seen)

They are even talking of banning charcoal fires within the area soon, but that has not happened yet. As the summer goes on, it is very likely. So... don't set your heart on it or disappointment may follow.
DOs use charcoal and can be done completely on a table. No fire pit needed. It may smoke a little while the charcoal is getting started but other than that we just use one of the tables we bring for our shows. Nothing needs to touch the ground. We will come prepared in case they say no to charcoal totally and have a propane grill that will sit on a table or worse case we can make something in the trailer and bring it outside.


And the rest area sounds like a good place to meet up. Thanks Gina Cell numbers have been exchanged so a time can be set. Do you need cell numbers to reach us just in case something changes while we are on the road? Like a road closure or other developments?

I'm coming!!! I got the temporary operating permit today. I do plan to ditch you all and go to the corgi picnic on Saturday, though, but will be back for the barbecue. (Picnic is 11 AM.) I will need to find some space on a grill as I don't have one. I'll probably bring chips and salsa unless I get creative before then. (Like there is a lot of time...)
