I don't need more than that :)
Just saw Jay's post about a band coming; maybe he meant he's bringing in speakers for all of Henry Coe :-)

"Is there really going to be a band??"

While I wish I was wrong, if there is one, it won't be QOTSA.

I'd be happy to sing you a tune at the GGG but I'm still operating under a court order which prevents me from doing so. I say I'm unique. They say my singing voice is a crime against humanity. Whatever.

Yes, but still entertaining.

No band that I am aware of. But it is CA, anything is possible.

Jay,I'm protesting that comment. I'm not THAT old (Stone Age?!?), my hearing(Deftones?) is still good and I definitely won't be playing in your tent-I've got my own. I think age discrimination is going on here and I'm gonna tell Ken on you! Tony will want to know about this too. You may have to stay out at Mississippi Lake the whole weekend if you keep offending the little old ladies at GGG 6.

Bring warm clothes for standing around at night without a campfire.

Got the call from Coe that a campfire ban is in effect due to dry conditions. No campfires, no charcoal fires. Stoves OK. Did not ask about Esbit and alcohol.

Bummer. I know. But for once the weather forecast is with us.

Like a fire movie to play on his projector?

From weather.com (for Morgan Hill); there's a big swing from the low 70s to the low 30s each day:

Fire footage on a projector and a propane heater is the only solution to this.

Weather temps -
I live in the hills on the West side of Morgan Hill. Unless something strange happens (the weather actually turning into winter) there is no way it will be in the 30s at night at Coe Park at Manzanita Camp. I've been sleeping with my door open and screen door closed. It's warm in these hills. It's 9:10pm now and it's 62­ degrees. At the bottom of my hill in the valley it has been in the 30s by morning. Eeah, maybe it's colder in Coe. Who knows?

For many people, camping without a fire would be like making a s'more without a graham cracker.

But growing use of the backcountry and developed campgrounds, coupled with environmental and fire danger concerns, has led to more restrictions on traditional wood campfires.


Another increasingly popular alternative is to purchase a propane fire pit, some not unlike gas logs popular in homes. Two Utah companies, Camp Chef in Logan, and Wheel Campfire in West Valley City, produce fires fueled by traditional propane tanks. Wheel Campfire also offers accessories that include heating racks for Dutch ovens and a wok.

While these propane fires don't provide the smoky ambiance of a traditional wood fire, they do offer advantages. They are legal during fire bans and light instantly on cold mornings or when the weather is bad.

"If it has a valve and when you turn it off it goes out immediately, then you are okay [during a ban]," said Reid Shelley, assistant fire management officer for prevention for the Wasatch-Cache-Uinta National Forest.

Wow... that's great... no fires, no smoke... in that case, maybe I'll change my mind and come to the event!
