Sheesh. Nobody light a match. We'd lose half of the west coast BPL'ers.

yeah, bring a shotgun. It's the only way to get close to the fire pits. :)

I don't have a cell phone and need to leave a # in case of an emergency. I PMed Ken, does anyone else have a phone that they could call my sis-in-law and leave a # that I can give her? We can meet up sometime Friday if needed to work things out. I'll give her the Park #. I forgot to send Ken an PM on Tuesday, too many things going on.
Thank you all,
Duane

Allright campers, I am signing off and going to finish packing the van. I'll see you all this weekend. Thanks in advance to the forum users that will answer those questions that pop up after I leave. If you didn't get a spot this time I'm sorry. Overwhelmed with interest this time. Come out for the day on Saturday at least and enjoy the unseasonable weather and the camaraderie of fellow hikers.

Thanks for everyones input and support.

Stuck in Oakland at the moment. Cruddy airport. Also the first airport I've ever flown through where I had to go back through security for a connecting flight. Hrumph.

Easy mistake to make - you may find Oakland a bit cruddy, too.
