The GGG cannot happen without your financial support. Money is tight this year, I don't have the spare cash to reserve $470+ of campsites.

Hi Ken, payment sent. Andrea and I are so looking forward.

One thing we are very thankful for this holiday season is you and our BPL family. Happy Thanksgiving!

Will be bringing a friend who is a new cottage gear maker of ultralight stove systems, who will be raffling off a full kit. Will post details soon.

Please let me know if you need us to put up a little more to help cover missing funds before others jump in.

Just sent you my $15, Ken. Larry may make it, hasn't decided yet. If so, I'll PP some more $.

I'm excited about Amy & Jim's bird talk, also the Gaia app presentation. Thanks for arranging all the "extras"!

Planning on arriving Saturday A.M. Any chance that someone will be driving or biking stuff in to the campsite then and could transport the box of brownies? That would enable me to bring a smaller pack (and more brownies...).

Doug,

If you fly out to the event, I will pay for your $15 share of the cost to attend.

You might have to sleep next to the pit toilet, but I will pay for you. :)

Seriously, you come, I am happy to put up $15 for your sorry, er.....bottom.

Doug,

If Tony pays the $15.00 you can bunk with me, no pit toilet here. Seriously though, if you come out it's going to be a blast, you're always great company and loads of laughter. I'll be bringing some gear from Borahgear.com so everyone can check out our product. Tarps, bivys, and a few smaller items, and maybe a backpack if I can get it here in time. I'm thinking of bringing my MYOG oven again if any body wants to try thier hand at baking biscuits for biscuits and gravy in the morning, muffins, or browines. Should be fun, it works best with charcoal. If anyone wants to bring extra charcoal to bake with, that would be great, 1 charcoal equals approx. 37* so 10 would equal 370* just to give people an idea.

Edited to clean it up a bit, didn't want people getting the wrong idea. LOL


See everyone soon, Jack
