ready,
lime squeezer is packed
Campisi was nice enough to carry a couple of boxes.
one of which has 15 pounds of limes and 6 pounds of mandarins
and another with 3 bottles of tequila and 2 bottles of Gran Marnier

I bought 100 pounds of dry ice this morning and will use it in the Pelican cooler to keep regular ice nice and frozen for our margaritas.
SunnyvaleX brought 1 box of firewood and we will need to stop and pickup a couple of more.

What is the final head count? Who is in and who isn't?

I'll pick up a couple boxes of firewood on the way in. Have 6 or 8 jars of tannerite. Anything else needed?

Plan is to meet GeoXplorer and TurtleX in Fernley tonight. Head to Soldier Meadow in the morning.

I had to break off from the group to attend to matters around home. I made it back safely about an hour ago after a marathon 9.5 hour drive home. It was a great trip even with the weird weather patterns. We lucked out in the sense that it wasn't nearly as cold as the first trip I went on 2 years ago, or as cold as last year's for that matter. The fact that we had cabins available to us for use to keep warm in was a huge plus. The trip through High Rock Canyon was really fun, especially with the what seemed like endless water crossings. I finally got to test out my new tires on something other than pavement, and my impression overall after 1200 miles on the Milestar Patagonia M/Ts is favorable. More to follow after I get a bit of sleep.

On a side note, as I was headed back home, just past the California/Nevada agriculture inspection point, it began to snow. By the time I got to Donner Summit, it was near white out conditions. I stopped at the rest area and the flurries died down, the new tires remained sure footed throughout the whole drive home. Snow was falling and sticking to about 4000 feet, where it turned to rain just a few miles short of Dutch Flat. As I approached Auburn, I heard a friendly voice on the VHF national hailing frequency (146.520) calling CQ looking for travelers. Apparently, there are several HAMs in the Sacramento through Reno area that monitor the frequencies in their spare time in case there are HAMs in need of vehicular assistance, I thought it was a great resource for us to be aware of on future trips. I wish more people would take the time to do this. I was also told that there is a repeater in the area 147.150 PL 127 that is monitored for travelers in need of help between Sacramento and Reno. I will research more and post on it.

I said my goodbyes to the group mid-day Saturday and headed home. The weather got progressively worse as I headed west on Hwy 299 with one stretch of downhill switchbacks in heavy rain and complete whiteout. However, I made it to my destination by 3:15, unscathed.

You had to be there.

And don't forget the distinction between a Dove Bar and the plebeian ice cream sandwich and how that distinction is treated in American jurisprudence when one communicates the intent to transport the first as a gesture of hospitality but supplies the other instead.
