Eric. We will see you there. You might want to delete your phone information. I have it.

Weather does look awesome. Especially the no wind part.

Looking at forecasts from different agencies give a wide range of results for next weekend from sun to rain. We'll have to wait and see.

4th Annual GGG on 02/10/2012 18:08:59 MST Print View

Don't know about the 4th Annual GGG,
Now, really, how can that be?

I'm just a newbie and it's quite clear to me,
So come along and here's what you'll see.

First off you'll meet two fine men,
Both of whom share the name Ken.

They decide the where and the when,
The rest of us just show up then.

Over there is "Firewood Mark",
His contributions keep us warm in the dark.

Cameron brings some of his special beer,
For those coming from far and near.

Look, it's the famous Tony Wong!
His photo records are never wrong.

Here comes a friendly guy named Jay,
Everyone knows of his sense of play.

Who's that in the hat?
In the hat?
Why, of course, it's Kat in the hat!

There's a Bakersfield guy name of Kevin,
For making my alcohol stoves he's assured of Heaven.

Don't worry about his snoring friend Jack,
They'll put his shelter way, way in the back.

The geezers, the kids, those who need sleep,
Will be directed to site #10 and told, "Not a peep!"

TT, GG, Zpacks and Caldera Cone,
Which and how many of these do you own?

Come see the very latest gear,
All that's new will be here.

We have help from the rangers,
So don't stay away, don't be strangers.

Another year at Coe!!!

Come on, give GGG a go!!!

May I humbly suggest an additional verse?

Who's that in the distance who has an answer for every post?
Well everyone knows him but he won't show... That's ol' ___ _____.

Thanks for the poem Jane, I love it, hope to see you there again. On a weather note the Farmers Almanac is calling for Feb. 16th-19th fair at first then stormy. We shall see! This forcast is for the Pacific Southwest, which includes California, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona. It has been pretty accurate this year, and we should see most of or rain totall from Feb.-May. It better not rain, I just bought a new/used mountain bike to ride into camp.

Hey Jack,
Was that a thinly disguised offer to shuttle our overloaded packs to camp on your bike. I call first haul.

Anyone have one that they are bringing? Just Todd? Which I am looking forward to seeing!

Anyone have anything in particular that they want to see/try?
