Hello, one and all! With the small amount of space here there's little room for embellishment- so here goes! MountainTrouble's managed to bite off more than a molehill of trouble here~ as this has snowballed into a major west coast BK event! Not wanting her to pull *ALL* her hair out (bald women just don't do it for me), I've volunteered to step in and handle the logistics of this snowballing event! We now have a live band (as opposed to dead...?)lined up, porta-potties lined up, and two (Friday and Saturday) impromptu scenic rides planned. Further info on these to follow! Plenty of room for camping/tents/etc., and those sissified girls that feel the need can sleep inside the house. There's a lot that's been done- and even more that needs to be done. There are those that have committed already to bringing food & supplies, but much more is needed! Given the amazingly HUGE response, the expenses are mounting at an exponential rate! It is therefore humbly requested that all who attend please assist in the success of this event by providing: the modest amount of $15 per day of your stay to cover entertainment and facilities (the band and the crappers), and also to bring something to add to- and share in- the festivities of this most wonderful of holidays! We're all here to give thanks for our family, friends, God, and country- so pledge to help our family of friends by your help with food, disposable plates & utensils, ice, party sized cookware, etcetera! I have a humble list of food and/or items already committed, so please contact me with what you'd like to offer our gracious host for her hospitality- and let's make sure we dont end up with 50 variations of potato salad! Well- I'm nearly out of space here, so if you have any questions, or are ready to RSVP formally and assist with our expenses, please contact *ME* ASAP- as we need to have cash up front to secure the amenities and entertainment for everyone's enjoyment! Thanks, and God bless! Scott

In the house...ladies any of you want to share your space with this one....I sure do not remember a promise of that nature...But I am sure we can find space for that travel trailer we talked about.... ;)
We can rent a double Port a Potty with sink for $150 for the weekend, plus tax and delivery fee of $30.00. I do not have money up front to rent it, but if someone does, they can call me and we will work it out. To rent a single is $100...plus tax and the delivery fee is the same...so it is only $50 more to rent two...and it even has a sink! Let me know! Soon...so we can get it before it rents out.
Thank you for the Thanks Giving invite, I actually have Thanksgiving at my house for all of my friends, family and friends of friends; but thank you, it sounds like a lot of fun...Keep me posted with upcoming events, no matter how long of short the ride is, I will ride it...
Have a great week, Kap
