Just a reminder that next Tuesdays meet-up is about Adventure Trailers and non trailer camp setup’s.

This includes;
Trailers of any size used off road
Vehicle kitchen setups within the vehicle
Chuck boxes
Rubber Made containers with all your stuff in them
And what ever you use for a camp set up.

Lets try to get to the distillery a little early and set up some camps. At 7 we will have a brief review of training and trips planned for 2021 then we will check out everyone's equipment. Mike and Deb Lee will lead the walk around, they have lots off experience researching trailers and equipment.

Looks like the Caldor Fire has taken some of our Long Canyon Trail, and it doesn't look good for the rest of it. Lots of work to do once we can get in there.

We are canceling the Crawdad trip to Richardson Lake September 17-19 due to the Caldor Fire.
If there is enough interest we will have a Crawdad Boil at the September meeting at Dry Diggings. The Cost will depend on the number of members that would like to attend. I will send out an invite very soon.

Klinton has canceled the training at Prairie City August 29. Hopefully this will be rescheduled.

Ray Antar has canceled the Rubicon trip September 10-12, due to the forest closure.

Tire Repair clinic is still on for September 04 at 0900 hrs. Location is 5921 Pleasant Valley Road in El Dorado. Cost for supplies is about $5 depending on how many people sign up. We will practice plugging, removing tires from rims, sewing sidewalls, replacing valve stems and just about anything else you might want to practice.

RSVP here. The limit is 15 members.

I am canceling the tire repair clinic, due to smoke and the lack of members signing up probably due to the holiday weekend. I will reschedule as soon as things calm down up here.
