    Directions to Marshall Lake are not to be had on Map Quest, but here they are:

    From the Target parking lot we will turn LEFT at the light on that corner onto Milton Rd.
    We will then go straight to the next light and turn RIGHT.
    Go straight to the next light and turn LEFT.
    Go straight through the next two lights, at the third light (Lake Mary Road) turn LEFT.
    Go straight until you see a brown sign for MARSHALL LAKE on your left hand side.
    Turn LEFT at the Marshall Lake turn off (a paved road) and follow until it forks at two dirt roads. We will take the Marshall Lake dirt road on the LEFT, NOT the one on the right which leads to Lowell Observatory. We will follow the dirt road for a bit and then stop for camp, or you will see us waving you down at camp.

    We will have cell phones and radios with us, so we will be able to be sure not to loose anyone.

    My husband, Justin and his friend Casey will be out there Friday night. I have to stay in town to host Void, Mick, sideshow, IA and Rachel at my house.

    If you want to camp with them on Friday night, just let me know and I'll take you out there, or you can leave with them.

    Since I am heading out on Friday with Void/others, I'd like to camp out that night.

    Kev: Are you and your Dad still coming up or are you getting a ride with someone else?

    Void won't make it up here until way after dark and is planning on staying at my place.

    If you make it here before dark, I will be happy to escort anyone out to the camp, but I wouldn't recommend trying to set up camp in the dark...very frustrating.

    Let me know what your plans are.

    Well, my dad is usually getting home at 1600 hrs. (4:00) now, so , if we have everything packed up by then, we'll be heading out around 1630 to 1700 hrs. But, if he gets home at 1900 hrs, be expecting us to be leaving at 1930 to 2000 hrs. and not get there until real late.

    Here's the problem guys and gals, I posted a while back that I only had room for five at my place and those spots have already been taken by Void, Mick, sideshow, IA and MJEH.

    I could possibly take two more if I sleep with my daughter and let two people sleep on my bed. Which I have no problem with doing.

    I wish I could house all of you, but the main problem is space. There are six people living at this house. All I can offer is floor space and one couch.

    So we have a dilema.

    I may have a solution to the problem tomorrow but I can't promise anything.

    As is, I can take only two more people and I'll share a bed with the kiddo.

    Kev: Last I talked to your Dad, he was leaving on Saturday morning, but if your plans have changed and you are coming up Friday night, I'll take you out to the campsite at night if you want to do that.

    But give me till tomorrow and I'll let you all know the deal. :D

    whatever works for you, jedi wench, i don't mean to impose on your hospitality.

    just out of curiousity, you don't happen to have a crawlspace, storage shed, lead-lined coffin in the basement i could possibly tuck into...? ;)

    HUGS FOR blackfeather

    There is not a friend of mine that is an imposition EVER.

    I think I may have a solution that will house everyone, but I just need to make sure and I'll let you know tomorrow.

    :D

    Thanks to everyone who has signed up to bring food for Saturday's lunch and Sunday's breakfast!

    We've got those two meals covered.

    Bring your own stuff for your dinner on Saturday and your own snacks and liquid entertainment.

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT SIGNED UP AND WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE:

    Bring some sodas to share with the group
    Some liquid entertainment to share
    or some S'mores stuff to share.

    ALSO: Be prepared for the chilly night and possible showers on Saturday which if they occur will hopefully be brief.

    We're gonna bring pleanty of wood to keep a fire going to keep you Desert Rats warm by!

    ALSO FYI:

    I will be bringing my First Aid kit, tourniquet, blood pressure cuff, CPR mask and stethoscope just in case.

    I would encourage you to bring your own First Aid kits as well.

    You can never be too prepared.

    Actually, I'm considering starting a betting pool for who's gonna be the first to sustain an injury of atleast shedding blood or requiring resting a limb...

    EEK! Ok I'll be bringing splints, crutches, and triangle bandages.

    Justin was teasin' me today saying that while we were playing paintball he was gonna paint a big red cross on my shirt, and send me out unarmed as a medic so that when anyone got shot they could scream "MEDIC!!!" and get a free paint check to see if they were still in the game. If they were hit in a non-vital area I could put a bandage on them and they'd be back in the game. If it was in a vital area, I would pronounce them dead.

    I thought it was quite ingenious actually, but then I realized MEDIC'S MAKE GREAT TARGETS WHEN THEY HAVE BIG RED CROSSES ON THEIR SHIRTS.

    Thanks honey! [face_shocked]

    arizonasithlord: No privies, but bring what ever you want to make it a little more desirable for yourself.

    WEATHER FORCAST AS OF TODAY

    FRI, SAT & SUN: HIGHS IN THE 60's, LOWS IN THE UPPER 20's! :D

    Hopefully they're gonna stick with this one, but I'd still bring gear for rain just in case.

    LOOKIN' FAVORABLE THOUGH! :D

    p.s.: I will start making phone calls around 5 p.m. today to make sure everyone is up to speed
