I already need to cancel.

I signed up, went to add it to the calendar and it is the day after my 2nd flu shot. The first shot left me feeling "off" so it is more than likely the 2nd will not have me in any mood to bang around in the cold.

Bummer as I have all this new gear - winch, ropes, etc. MaxTrax due in Monday. It would be a great opportunity to play with it, or at least watch someone else play with theirs ;-p

Hey, wait. How did I get on the not going list? I missed getting on the going list so how can I be cancelled? Dan I hate using the internet on a phone. I just want to get on the waiting list. Thanks Dave.

That’s no real hard limit so plan to come. At this point I am concerned there may not be snow though.

Just a heads up, my weekend call schedule for work shifted and I’m on call now for March 13th. So I cannot lead this trip, however the map locations are listed along with times. I don’t see why everyone couldn’t still easily meet up and head up to the MET. As far as communication we will use HAM 146.460 and travel as a convoy for those who want to meet up at the McDonald’s in Pleasanton CA. Otherwise the next meet up in Pollock Pines is the second location to rally at.

I am bummed I won’t make this one!

Hey guys. My name is Tony and I’m going to head the drive up the MET since Dave got called in for rocket surgery.

I will meet you guys in the Safeway parking lot in Pollock Pines. I’ll be there around 9am and will be in a white Tacoma all overlandered out. Lol. I’ll be monitoring 146.460 and I hope to see you all up there!

Looks like it’ll be snowing all week so be prepared to have a great time or a miserable time and everything in between. Lol.

4x4 is required, and good all terrain/snow rated tires will work the best up there. See you guys then!

Tony will take good care of you because he’s got GUMPTION

Good boots, bubba rope, traction boards, he LOVES getting people unstuck! Haha

Have fun!
