Event Description

Join us for George's 42nd Birthday at Live Oak Recreation area. Camping is $15/night (not as cheap as two years ago, but still pretty cheap). Day use is $5/day (still pretty cheap) if you don't want to camp but want to visit us on Saturday and share the cake. This will be rain or shine -- we'll have the Tent of Doom there.

Bring wine, firewood, and your sweet selves.

The site has no flush privies or showers but does have well-maintained port-a-potties.

Thanks for the weather forecast, Regis. Let's cross our fingers! But I'm bringing the Tent of Doom  and the annex just in case.

Looking forward to it! We'll start out early and make the trek East (18 miles!) Joel, we'll miss you, as a matter of fact we already miss you--haven't seen you and the Rhubarb in forEVER! Melville will love celebrating with a dormie in his prime!

I'm afraid  that I can't make it this time. See you at Bus City.

Sorry to miss you, Gene. Take care of yourself, and we'll see you in May.

I visited the campground today, and it looks good. Couple of things I need to point out here:

1. You'll need "exact change" for the pay envelopes at the gate; the caretaker does not make change. You might actually want to bring your money in increments of $7.50, so you can either pay for the site in full or repay the person you're sharing space for. BTW, the $15.00 fee is per night, per slot, and the second vehicle in the slot is free.

2. If you're coming up from the south and need groceries and/or ice, you'll pass a Raley's at the intersection of 99 and Bridge Street.  If you're coming from the north, there's a Safeway in Gridley, about six miles north of Live Oak. (The latter won't carry block ice, though.) There are a few other supermarkets near the intersection of 99 and 20.

3. I hereby declare that Friday night will be Pizza night. Coleman camp ovens are solicited,  and I'll be bringing mine as well. As for Saturday, what do y'all think about a potluck?

4. I expect to get there around 1 p.m. or so.

John -

Thanks for scoping things out.  Laura and I will be pulling in on Saturday, mid day.   I got another mando for you to check out.  My repertoire has expanded quite a bit since Thanksgiving.  Need a guitar player there.  -Rick

So are we going to potluck Saturday night?
