    The official Skywalker Ranch trip, my contact says that 4 of us can go. I am working 2 jobs until July 8, so I am thinking July 12, Monday. We drive down, spend one night, get up to see the Mecca on Tuesday, go give the Golden Gate a whirlwind tour, then bust butt back here sometime Wednesday AM.

    Now that schedule is what works for me, and I am sure it wont for other people, so let us discuss. We pretty much have all summer to go, but who can WAIT???

    The restrictions are that we have do arrive there on a weekday, as that is obviously when the place is open, and when Lucas is most likely to be wandering the Halls (but no obnoxious behavior please, whereas guests are allowed at the Ranch, my contact made clear that our actions could get him fired if we goof up).

    So who can get a couple weekdays off?
    Who can drive a 12 hour stretch?
    Who can donate gas money?
    Who wants to listen to the disco version of the Imperial March for the entire trip?

    Discuss.

    I just gently asked my job about getting the above dates off and they gave me a real dirty look, therefore the date is officially up in the air again. Throw out some suggestions. May be after the camping trip now.

    Hey Barry, if I wanted to go with you guys, is there any hope in doing so??? I'm more than willing to drive down to IDF and then carpool up to the ranch...
    thoughts?

    Hello Casey, I would have asked you at the beginning, but I was worried about that xtra 300 miles on your part, and we have a very strict population limit. 4 people only, (and I am one of them). The guys here are still figuring out work schedules and available funds. If nobody else can afford it, anything is possible. I can always meet you in Twin Falls.

    I am now waiting for one of my summer classes to end (July 8) and then I will go first chance I get (except weekend on July 16th, when the SW group here is camping, and I have an Electro saber I want to take out into the woods).

    Give me a call.

    I hope that the silence does not mean that EVERYONE is bared financially from going.

    My current plan is to go the Sunday of July 25, or if Adam cannot get that weekend off, then August 1. Adam and Eric have given me the thumbs up that they want to go if the date is right, can we have an update?
