    I have an extra tarp, but I'm not coming till Saturday.

    Sistine and I will likey be sleeping in the Montero, instead of a tent. I'll be providing our own sleeping bags, pillows, etc. I'll also bring one or two 5 gallon water jugs.

    ok, do we have a tally of how many cars we'll be taking up there? and of who'll be needing a ride up there? this way we can figure out who'll need a tent, where to pack stuff in, just sort out the logistics of the cargo.

    For those that want to use my rifle...

    Sports authority (On elliot and I-10) has 5.56mm (.223 remington) Winchester made ammo in boxes of 20 for $5. If you want to shoot it, you have to supply your own ammo.

    For those interested in learning basic marksmanship I'm also bringing a .22 Long Rifle pistol for teaching. SA has Winchester .22 LR ammo 50 rounds for .99 cents.

    I'll post what I'm brining probably on Wednesday when the hubby and I can dig it all out together.

    Also on Wednesday, the hubbs and I will go scout out a good camping spot and draw up a map for everyone if possible.

    If not, we'll make sure that we have everyone at Target before we drive to the campsite so no one gets left behind.

    Directions to my place are with our illustrious Birthday Boy! Or, PM me if you want! 8-}

    Choad and Choads Girl will actually be making the camping trip. Choad failed to get with his magician/financial advisor. ;) We have decided that with all that is going on, we need to get away. Choad won't be paintballing but we'll still be up there to have a good time with those who are up there for the camping part. :)

    Who may I get a ride with on Saturday? :confused: I live near 1-17 and Cactus, so it's pretty much on the way. :)

    I'll check with my dad about a warmer sleeping bag, but if people have extra equipment I can use I'd appreciate it. :)

    Oh, and if my nose is buried in book its not because I don't like you people. ;) 8-} In two weeks I have three different papers due, so at the very least I'll need to take my Shakespeare book along so I can read and be ready to write my Shakespeare paper. :) I was really considering just staying home and working all weekend, but that gets boring real fast and my PlayStation can be a big distraction. [face_blush] [face_laugh] :)

    EDIT: Thank you chickey! :D

    YIPPEEEE!! She's a-comin'!!!

    WOOT!

    Anywho...BISCUIT: If I can't afford some ammo can I fondle the Preciousssss? [face_love] That is such a SWWEEET piece, I don't think I could stand it if I didn't get to at least touch it.

    *COUGH*

    [face_blush]

    What can I say, guns make me all giddy inside. [face_love]

    Don't you guys remember how wound up I was the last time we went to A-1 and I shot the AR-15 and the M-1? My hands and knees were shaking I was so excited!!!

    Ahhh the firepower!
