Dan; I know you've been down with the flu, and you really should not drive or post while doing meds! The "Otters" are Ron and the other Linda! Paula and Steve are "cotydog" or something like that, I'm on meds, 12 oz canned kind.
yup SPAM you guessed it- medicinal purposes galore- fry it, steam it, warm it up on the intake manifold enroute, blend it with your smoothie, thin sliced, thick sliced or just jab it with a fork, you'll feel better immediately. and read the can.
I hope you start feeling better and get your memory back.

This sounds great. A perfect wrap up to the summer before heading back to work. Put me on the list, I'll definitely be there.

This is a Great place!!!

We stayed at Eagle's Nest two summers ago, it was GREAT! Lava Beds Nat'l Monument is also very interesting. Remember to bring a hard hat/helmet and headlamp if you plan on doing some caving, otherwise, the hosts may have some extra equipment to loan out. We've marked our calendar...hope to see you all there!

Looks good so far for rally attendance as many expressed at casini a desire to come. it might take a little gas to get to lava beds but that's what it takes to get away from the congestion and population zones. it's a rare pleasure to be free from crowds even in summer in cali. ummm.. can't wait.

Just thinking out loud....The last time we went to Lava Beds was when we lived in Washoe Valley (early 80's). It was a nice drive....a lot nicer than the I 5 route we may take from here in Placerville. It isn't a go for us yet but if we do decide to go could we slip in behind you and 'convoy' up together? Big Dee says he will go up 5 but he may just might consider......?
Neilo.

You're welcome to caravan with us. If I remember correctly it's about 3.5 hrs. from Reno. The drive is quite pretty once you're up through Susanville. We'll most likely head up on Friday. We'll firm things up closer to the event.

Gotta kick my 2 cents in: 2 bonuses in the area.

If you haven't smelled horseradish growing, then you've missed one of life's pleasures. There were any number of fields there 2 years ago.

There is a large formation of rock called the Peninsula near Newell. Come at dusk and watch countless hawks return and owls leave. Amazing.

And you haven't even entered Lava Beds NM yet.

Bill
